Folic Acid Overview

Folic acid (conjugate base 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.

Haemorrhagic cyst and uterine fibroid
Post a Reply
I have 2 Haemorrhagic cysts (3x2cm) in my right ovary and 1 uterine fibroid (9mm) since 2 months after my gynae gave me HCG injection. I was asked to take crimson 35 oral contraceptives last month by my gynae and since they didn't help, my doc asked me to discontinue them and just take folic acid tabs. Now I am having bleeding and blood in mucus, vaginal discharge after 1 week of my menses. So, is this the reason for bleeding after 1 week of menses?

Can ultrafolin reduce acne? Can it cure acne? ## Hello, Manish! How are you? No, this is a folic acid supplement, it is a nutrient that is vital to our overall health, but it will not help with acne. The U.S. FDA lists it as mostly being used when a woman is pregnant, to ensure she gets enough for her and the baby to both remain healthy and prevent birth defects. It can sometimes cause nausea, as a side effect, due to its potency. Is there anything else I can help with?
