    500 ug or 400 ug?

    Can I ask you a question which has been bothering me for some time? I am a foreigner.
    For women who are trying to conceive, not yet pregnant, how much folic acid they should take per day?
    Why all folic acid supplements in Singapore are containing 500 ug, which is a little bit more than 400 ug recommended in many books?

    Could you kindly tell me how much you have taken when you were planning pregnancy? Thanks a lot!

    I took the 500mg ones bought from Guardian pharmacy. I asked my gynae whether its an overdose and he said any excess folic acid will just be passed out as waste from the body.
