Hi There

Bit of a strange question - but can you have too much folic acid?

I am taking pregnacare but I am also taking fish oil tablets (from Boots) which also includes folic acid and ginger.

So I am abit concerned that I could be taking too much folic acid and the protein powder that I take aswell contains folic acid.

What do you think?

Thanks

Bernie

Hi Bernie,

Hope you dont mind me butting in.............
Not sure about the folic acid question im afraid, but i think that your body only takes as much as it needs and the rest is excreted?? I really just wanted to ask you if your fish oil tablets were fish liver oil?

The British Medical Association states that 'women who are (or may become) pregnant are advised not to take Vitamin A supplement (including tablets and fish liver oil drops) except on the advice of a doctor or antenatal clinic.'

Good luck

Hi Nic

I don't mind you butting in at all!

I think that they must be ok because they are by Boots and they are called 'Mum To Be' but I'll check the box when I get home just to be on the safe side.

Many thanks

Bernie xx
