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] The term folate is often used in the food supplement industry to denote something different than "pure" folic acid: in chemistry, the term folate refers to the deprotonated ion and folic acid to the neutral molecule, which both co-exist in water.

Shal i take docosa- fm co.taining docosahexanoic acid. Folic acid. Methylcobalamin. Pyridoxine hydrochloride .... I had misscarriage before 2months..w stil not pregnent ## Hello, Ratna! How are you doing? If you are trying to get pregnant and want the best possible outcome, then you should check with your doctor, before taking anything new, even something that is just a supplement. It would be the best and safest thing to do, in order to try and prevent another miscarriage. As to not being pregnant again, yet….that could take awhile. Having been pregnant and then suffering a miscarriage has disrupted your hormones and it will take a bit for them to balance back out and for ovulation to occur. Are there any other questions or concerns? ## Thank u for ur concern... ## hi this is sin...

How long does it take for nur isterate wear off cos i would really like to fall pregnant soon. I have been using the injection since May 2011 to Nov 2011. should i take pills instead so that my cycle can return faster or what? i desperately need advise on this regard cos i want to have a baby. ## Have you consulted your doctor?

best time to take the cherifer pgm ## Did your doctor provide any instructions? Cherifer PGM contains: Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF) 200 mg, Zn (elemental) 15 mg, taurine 200 mg, vit A 2,756 iu, vit D 400 iu, thiamine HCl 1.95 mg, riboflavin 1.95 mg, niacinamide 35 mg, pyridoxine HCl 3 mg, cyanocobalamin 3 mcg, folic acid 250 mcg, vit C 100 mg, Fe 17 mg, Ca phosphate 150 mg, Mg oxide 7.5 mg and copper sulfate 1 mg. So it is a multivitamin supplement. Some people experience some nausea when taking it, so you may want to take it a little while before eating. Due to the energy boost that vitamins can also give, it is usually best to take it in the morning, rather than at night. ## how many times do i have to take cherifer pgm a day?? ## I dont know :) ## once a day only on other site ## i ...

400 Mcg of folic acid Is Equal To How Many Iu Of Folic Acid
5 Replies RSS
is 400 iu of folic acid equal to 400 mcgs of folic acid?Thanks ## Years ago a dr told me to start taking 400 ui of folic acid. Now i find folic acid is labeled as 400 msg not 400 ui.Is 400 msg equal to 400 ui?ThanksF ## Generally speaking, you can't convert between IU and MCG. IU's measure the potency of a drug, not its mass or weight. You can only measure between MG and MCG. 1000 micrograms (mcg) = 1 milligram (mg); so 400 mcg will be equal to just 4 mg Folic acid 400 mcg does equal 100 percent daily value for this nutrient. NOTE: If you can determine what percent daily value 400 iu of folic acid is, then you can essentially compare mcg vs iu. Hope this helps! ## Thanks, that is the conversion I was looking for! ## I have a question as well what is the percentage of folic acid ...
