It states the recommended dosage for females is 700ug retinol, yet the one capsule daily contains 1500? Is this safe to take long term? And are there any effects from taking this high a dose?

Thanks

Is the choles block capsule made of gelatin? Why don't you list what the shell is made of, it is very frustrating for a vegetarian trying to buy your products.
