Folic Acid Overview

Folic acid or folate is a B vitamin. It is also referred to as vitamin M,[4] vitamin B9,[5] vitamin Bc[6] (or folacin), pteroyl-L-glutamic acid, and pteroyl-L-glutamate.[7] Food supplement manufacturers often use the term folate for something different from "pure" folic acid: in chemistry, folate refers to the deprotonated ion, and folic acid to the neutral molecule—which both coexist in water.

Are there any other questions or comments? ## You can test supplements as well as anything else. There is good evidence for all the ingredients in it. ## I wish to return the Neurotil NG-0043 and Stemtrol NG-0014 I wish to return these and also cancel my order.
