Upper limit

Upper Limit (UL) is the maximum tolerable intake level of a nutrient. UL is the highest level of daily intake of a specific nutrient likely to pose no risk of adverse health effects in almost all individuals of a specified age and gender. The higher the intake above the UL, the higher the risk of adverse effects. (1)What are Dietary Reference Intakes? 1998, National Academy of Sciences. Available here.
