Folic Acid Overview

Folate, forms of which are known as folic acid and vitamin B9, is one of the B vitamins.[4] The recommended daily intake of folate is 400 micrograms from foods or dietary supplements.[6] Folic acid is the form of folate used to treat anemia caused by folic acid deficiency.[4] Folic acid is also used as a supplement by women during pregnancy to prevent neural tube defects in the baby.[4][7] Low levels in early pregnancy are believed to be the cause of more than half of babies born with neural ...

i am taking neurokind tab long time so plese can you tell me there is any side effect from this tablet also whate are the best for health wht will happen if i take more? ## Nurokind is a Vitamin B complex supplement, sometimes given to treat Diabetic Neuropathy and other cardiovascular diseases. It contains: Folic acid 1.5 mg Alpha lipoic acid 100 mg Methylcobalamin 1.5 mg (a form of vitamin B-12) Vitamin B1 10 mg Vitamin B6 3 mg Since it is a dietary supplement, the side effect profiles, interactions with other medications and actual proof that it helps does not exist.

400 Mcg of folic acid Is Equal To How Many Iu Of Folic Acid
11 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 ...
