Beta carotene overdose, toxic effects of excess intake

Unlike vitamin A, beta carotene is not toxic in large amounts although it may cause the skin of the hands, feet and face to become yellow. This disappears when large intakes are stopped and does not appear to have any ill effects. Research in animals suggests the possibility of menstrual problems with long-term excessive intake.
