Is it ok to take folate instead of folic acid in a vitamin?

Is it ok to take folate instead of folic acid in a vitamin?

You say potato...: Yes, perhaps you've heard the song. Folate (folic acid) and Folic acid are synonyms, meaning they are two words for the exact same thing. Folate (folic acid) is the term used by chemists by convention, Folic acid is a more non specific term but the chemical is identical. Either way, it's all good. ...Read more

I have the MTHFR gene. Is it safe to take the Methyl CpG supplement? Which vitamins should I avoid? It has 2,000mcg of folate, in the M.CpG Is it safe

I have the MTHFR gene. Is it safe to take the Methyl CpG supplement? Which vitamins should I avoid? It has 2,000mcg of folate, in the M.CpG Is it safe

Go ahead: This gene testing is being promoted by a lab to liability-wary physicians. The majority of folks tested are told they have an abnormal gene and that they should take these folks' supplements. Most of us pathologists think it's subscientific at best, though there's some interesting stuff. Health doesn't come out of a pill bottle and I hope you're eating sensibly and exercising. Best wishes. ...Read more

Is it okay to take a b complex vitamin in addition to a centrum multi-vitamin?

Is it okay to take a b complex vitamin in addition to a centrum multi-vitamin?

Likely yes; however: There is no harm in taking them together; however, b vitamins are commonly nauseating. Therefore, taking them together may increase the risk of nausea. I would suggest taking them at different times to prevent nausea and to minimize a large peak of b vitamins. Several smaller doses make the vitamin available throughout the day. ...Read more

I heard that folic acid is useful to be taken before pregnancy is that true? And also vitamins e and c ?!

I heard that folic acid is useful to be taken before pregnancy is that true? And also vitamins e and c ?!

Yes and maybe: Adequate Folic Acid helps to prevent neural tube defects, a type of birth defect. Taking any multivitamin will generally give you enough, but check the label on your prenatal vitamins to make sure. Vitamin c is water soluble, and you cannot take too much in any practical sense, because any excess you take will be cleared in your urine. Keep to the rda for vitamin e, however, as it is fat soluble. ...Read more

While taking a prenatal vitamin is folate (in whole food vitamins) and folic acid (synthetic vitamins) the same? Or is one better than the other?

While taking a prenatal vitamin is folate (in whole food vitamins) and folic acid (synthetic vitamins) the same? Or is one better than the other?

The same!: Folate is another name for folic acid, and for prevention of birth defects, or for any other purpose, there is absolutely no difference in effectiveness between Folic Acid that has been made in the lab and Folic Acid from a natural product. You should definitely take a prenatal vitamin that contains one or the other, but the manufacturing process is up to you! ...Read more
