RRM what is your opinion on taking folic aid supplements before pregnancy? I with my husband are planing a baby and my doctor said to take 400 mcg three month before pregnancy. I did folic acid blood test and results are in a higher range 41.03 nmol/l (12.2 - 45.3 normal range). With wai diet i consume about 450-640mcg folate per day most of it comes from orange juice, yolks. For female 19+ age RDA is 400mcg and 600mcg during pregnancy.
If i am not deficient in folate and I get RDA from diet alone, is it still necessary to take folic acid supplements? I read some information that too much of it even can be harmful, especially synthetic FA, because its not the same as FA from foods.
Did your wife take folic acid supplements before or during pregnancy?
Cancer, Diabetes, Osteoporosis etc.

Synthetic FA is molecularly identical to natural FA
