Warnings:

Zinc may be dangerous if taken in large amounts or for a long period. This product contains selenium which is toxic in high doses. A daily dose of 150 mcg for adults of selenium from dietary supplements should not be exceeded. Large doses of vitamin C may cause gastrointestinal complaints such as nausea or diarrhoea in sensitive individuals (due to the osmotic effects of unabsorbed ascorbic acid). Caution with kidney stones - long-term supplementation with vitamin C may increase the risk of kidney stones in men. Vitamin C increases iron absorption - caution in patients with haemochromatosis. Lysine can increase calcium absorption: caution in hypercalcaemia. Lysine can reduce gall bladder motility: caution in cases of sluggish gall bladder function. Manganese toxicity can cause neurological symptoms. Caution in patients with increased absorption or decreased excretion: children, chronic liver disease, iron-deficient patients. Vitamin and/or mineral supplements should not replace a balanced diet. If symptoms persist consult your health care practitioner. Not to be used in children under two years of age without medical advice. Discontinue 7 days prior to general anaesthesia.
