fol new tablet
I want to know about Fal New Tablet. plz inform me. ## Hi saiful, How are you? From what I could gather, Folnew softgels reportedly contain folic acid as the primary ingredient; which they market for use in treating folate-deficiency anemia. I haven't come across any other specific details relating to the ingredients, however, the manufacturer is listed as Cadila Pharmaceuticals, if you wanted to try and contact them directly for more information. I hope this helps!

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 ...
