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 than "pure" folic acid: in chemistry, folate refers to the deprotonated ion, and folic acid to the neutral molecule—which both co-exist in water.

My Dr. prescribed all-9 boh tablet.. Can u please tell me why it is prescribed? ## Hello, Payel! How are you? This is listed by the FDA as being a supplement that contains all 9 of the necessary amino acids. It's just intended to make sure that you get enough of them to improve or maintain good health. It may sometimes cause nausea and diarrhea, as side effects, in some people that take it. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Does it also contain folic acid ## Yes, it does, from what I've found. Are there any other questions or concerns?

is taking folic acid calcium and magnesium same as deplin
Post a Reply
I've been taking 15 mg deplin for nearly 6 months and it seems to be working quite well. I'm a single and disabled mom and don't get child support. My parents have been paying for itit, but it isn't fair to them. I went to see my psychiatrist yesterday who looked it up. He thinks that if I were to take folic acid, calcium and magnesium that it would be equivalent to the active ingredients in deplin. Is this true? If it is, what would the amounts of each supplement be to equal the 15 mg deplin? I can't afford to stay on the deplin anymore, so any information will be greatly appreciated!!! Thank you in advance for any and answers, information and time.
