Hypervitaminosis is a condition of abnormally high storage levels of vitaminswhich can lead to toxic symptoms.

Specific hiperviaminosis names of the different conditions are derived from the vitamin involved: Hypervitaminoses are primarily caused by fat-soluble vitamins D and Aas these are stored by the body for longer period than the water-soluble vitamins. Generally, toxic levels of vitamins stem from high supplement intake and not from natural food.

Toxicities of fat-soluble vitamins can also be caused by a large intake of highly fortified foods, but natural food rarely deliver dangerous levels of fat-soluble vitamins. With few exceptions, like some vitamins from B-complex, hypervitaminosis usually occurs with the fat-soluble vitamins A and D, which are stored, respectively, in the liver and fatty tissues of the body. These vitamins build up and remain for a longer time in the body than water-soluble vitamins.
