The macronutrients utilise the EU NRVs.

The micronutrients use the EU RDAs, US DVs and highest adult values of the US DRIs and Nordic Nutrition Recommendations.

Where micronutrients have a maximum listed, these are the lower of the US DRI Upper Tolerable Limits and the Nordic Upper Limits.

Whilst the UTL of vitamin A is set at 10000 IU, this limit refers to retinyl palmitate or retinol, which are pre-formed vitamin A. Beta carotene does not have such a limit.

Whilst the UTL for niacin is 35mg, this refers to the nicotinic acid form. Niacin in the nicotinamide (aka niacinamide) form does not cause harmful effects until a much higher level. There is a Nordic upper limit for the nicotinic acid form of niacin of 10mg. The limit for the nicotinamide form is 900mg.

Whilst I have not listed a UTL for magnesium, it is recommended not to get more than 350mg of magnesium from supplements. There is no limit for natural sources however.

There is a Nordic upper limit of 3700mg of potassium, but this is for supplements only so is not included.

Recommendation and upper limit given for vitamin E are for synthetic forms. Natural forms have different values.
