hi hi, im jz wondering if we can take folic acid daily evntho' we r hvin our period?? OR cn only consume them wen AF cleared.. Pls advice guys.. TIA..
Yes, I believe we can take folic acid even when we have our period as folic acid is not something that increases blood circulation. And we would not want that during pur period as that will cause more discharge.
One of my relative just told me earlier this morning that many of her friends and also her sister itself conceive after taking Folic Acid Ultra Primrose from GNC.... I'm gonna buy it 2moro.... since it really works for a load of them...Lets all try and get pregnant together.
from what i know, actually folic acid does not help one to concieve.. it helps to prevent certain birth defect, that's y it's better to start eating 3mths before you conceive.. correct me if i'm wrong =)
looking at the GNC ultra folic acid GNC ~ Helping You Live Your Best Life - GNC Women's Ultra Mega® i tink the normal folic acid that we cn prescribe frm the pharmacy has slightly higher dosage of the folic acid cz the ones in GNC has 400mcg = 0.4mg whreas the one the norm has 5mg.. better not waste money n jz eat the ones precribe by my gynae=D
I went to GNC today and was given very good advice by the experts there..
The folic acid they have is 800mcg. And about the ultra primrose it actually doesnt enhance the chance of getting pregnant it helps to moist our skin and internal body.
The expert recommended me Prenatal Formula ($47.95). She said its good for woman who's trying to conceive and already conceived. It has Vitamin A, C, D, E and B6. It also contains 800mcg of folic acid, thiamin, roboflavin, niacin, biotin, iron and zinc.
She told me its very popular among those woman who's trying to conceive and its very sellable. It has 120tablets and to be taken one tablet twice a day.
Today is my 1st day of AF and at the same time i'm taking it for the 1st time...so hopefully this will be my last AF Why dont't you gals try it too... It's only supplement..No worries
