Folic Acid Supplement 400 mcg, Folate
100 folic acid Tablets
Folic acid w/ B vitamin- food source
Folate is the anionic form of folic acid vitamin
Folic acid supplement, 400 mcg, 100 tablets. Some people confuse folic acid 400 mg and folic acid 400 mcg. One milligram mg equals 1,000 micrograms mcg. Folic acid supplement is needed in minute amounts, and measured in micrograms rather than milligrams. Therefore 400 mg is not correct.
Support for the Nervous and Reproductive Systems
Also consider a doctor formulated MultiVit Rx multivitamin which includes folic acid vitamin.
Folic acid is a vitamin used for the production of DNA and red blood cells, making it essential during pregnancy for normal fetal development. It supports brain and nervous system function, and benefits mental health. It is also needed for protein metabolism and may support cardiovascular health.

Food sources of folate
This B vitamin is found naturally in greens like spinach and broccoli, oranges and orange juice, and dried beans and peas, among other foods. Its synthetic form, folic acid, is added to enriched breads, breakfast cereals and other grains.
FDA allows these two qualified health claims for Folic Acid:
A. Healthful diets with adequate folate may reduce a woman's risk of having a child with a brain or spinal cord defect. The Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences recommends that women capable of becoming pregnant consume 400 micrograms of folic aced daily from supplements, fortified foods, or both, in addition to consuming food folate from a varied diet.
B. Folic acid in a dietary supplement is more effective in reducing the risk of neural tube defects than a lower amount in foods in common form. FDA does not endorse this claim. Public health authorities recommend that women consume 0.4 mg folic acid daily from fortified foods or dietary supplements or both to reduce the risk of neural tube defects.
Folic acid supplement questions
Q. Do I need to take a folic acid supplement if I am taking MultiVit Rx or another multivitamin that has folic acid in it?
A. Unless you are deficient in folic acid or have a poor diet that does not supply adequate folic acid, MultiVit Rx or another multivitamin that supplies 200 to 400 mcg of folic acid a day should be sufficient for most people.
