QShould I be concerned that Berocca® contains levels of vitamins above the NRV?
There is no need for concern, the vitamins in Berocca® are at levels above the NRV, but they are all present at levels below the Upper Safe Levels. The NRV (Nutrient Reference Value) of vitamins is the recommended daily amount required to maintain health. Some supplements contain levels of vitamins and minerals above the NRV. This is because for some nutrients, intake above the NRV is safe. For most vitamins and minerals Upper Safe Levels have also been established so that both manufactures and consumers can be made aware of the levels of intake which allow people to supplement their diets optimally. The B vitamins and vitamin C in Berocca® are water-soluble vitamins, which means you need them in your diet every day because many are not stored in the body for any length of time.
