In brief: High Folate (folic acid) Levels

There is no known consequence of high serum folic acid levels.
The only potential consequence of excessive intake of folate is the masking of b12 deficiency. The recomended allowance of Folate is 1mg/day and foalte is added to the majority of food stuffs to prevent deficiency.
