Can u take folic acid tablets and multi vitamins tablet containing folic acid each day? Is that over dosing?
Depends: Dose depends on the condition being treated (anemia, sprue, pregnancy). Generally a total intake more than 1 (one) mg a day is associated with a higher incidence of side effects like loss of appetite, nausea, gas, abd pain, irritability, etc. Check with your fp if you have further questions about safe amount of folic acid. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: One's hair will be "as good as it gets", if one eats a normal, healthy, balanced diet (which will contain all the folate (folic acid) and biotin needed for normal living). If a person has a rare disorder causing a deficiency of folate (folic acid) or of biotin, she can work out the details with her doctor. Normal people do not need extra doses of supplements, but 1 daily multivitamin or 1 prenatal vitamin is okay to take. ...Read more

What kind of supplement has activated folate (folic acid) and is typically recommended over Folic Acid suppliments?
Green leafy plants: I'm more of an advocate of getting your vitamins from FOOD, not from a bottle - where the substances within have been processed. Folate (or folic acid) is found naturally in green leafy plants - the name actually derives from 'foliage' or 'leaves'. So I advocate eating fresh veggies/plants. That type of diet also provides different minerals, micronutrients, anti-oxidants, fiber etc. that you need. ...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?
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Manganese = 2.8 mg
Folate (folic acid) better form: Folate (folic acid) is the naturally-occuring form that occurs in foods, whereas Folic Acid is a synthetic form. While Folic Acid is better absorbed, our bodies need to convert it to the active form, l-5-mthf & about 1/3 of people have trouble making this conversion. Excess Folic Acid may be hazardous.See http://blog.Designsforhealth.Com/blog/bid/115121/folic-acid-vs-folate-part-i & my comment for link to pt 2. ...Read more
What is the recommended dosage of magnesium both - as amino acid chelate and as oxide heavy?, Am deficient in magnesium
Magnesium deficiency: Most Americans are low in magnesium. It can vary from one person to another up to 8 fold how much magnesium a person needs. I recommend following label directions and increasing by one dose per night until 8 doses or loose stool. If you get to loose stool, consider that one dose too many. Most people only need 2 or 3 doses per day, and it could be taken all at bedtime. ...Read more
I was wondering what are the benefits of taking folic acid during pregnancy..Are folic acid and iron supplement same or different?
Is ascorbic acid a synthetic form of vitamin c? What is more effective calcium ascorbate or sodium ascorbate?
Not necessarily;same: All vitamins go by 2 names, their letter name & chemical name. Ascorbic acid is the chemical name of vit c, as pyridoxine is the chemical name of b6 etc.Ascorbic acid refers to both natural & synthetic forms.Almost all vit c supps are synthetic & most derived from corn which is likely gmo.I favor c from non-corn sources like cassava root.Calcium & sodium ascorbate are equally effective.See comment:. ...Read more
Safe but not helpful: Unless a person has some serious vitamin deficiency (very unlikely in the U.S.) taking additional vitamins, folic acid, or biotin at the usual recommended supplement doses will lead to hair growth at about 1mm every couple of days, or about half an inch a month . . . Which is the same hair growth rate as in people not taking extra folate nor extra biotin. ...Read more
For faster hair growth can I consume 5000mg biotin , prenatal or folic acid , multivitamins, 3000mg fish oil pills daily? Is is safe?
Yes, safe but...: Taking all of the things you mention is quite safe. However, there is no guarantee this will result in faster hair growth; if you are deficient in any of those (which is actually quite common) then it should help somewhat; if not deficient then it won't do much for your hair but may still have other health benefits.

Is ok if I am taking a prenatal vitamins that has 800mcg of folic acid, and take another folic acid vitamin thar has 400mcg???
Its fine: Up to about 1000mcg or 1 mg is perfectly fine and this is just 1200 mcg. However, in the 400mcg pill you said folic acid vitamin. I am assuming you mean just a folic acid supplement and not a multivitamin. You can get too much of things like vitamin A, so just be aware of that. ...Read more
Absolutely: Folic acid is a normal component of most prenatal vitamins.
