I just wanted to let you know that there is a better version of folic acid that can be more easilly absorved by the body.Its a bit more expensive than normal folic acid, but I think in people with our condition its worth it.
This is from wikipedia
L-methylfolate is the natural, active form of folate used at the cellular level for DNA reproduction, the cysteine cycle and the regulation of homocysteine among other functions. The un-methylated form, folic acid (vitamin B9), is found in leafy green vegetables. Synthetic folic acid works to replicate the action of folate, but must be broken down in a series of metabolic steps in order to become L-methylfolate. Approximately 10% of the general population (homozygous TT) lack the enzymes needed to receive any benefit from folic acid. Another 40% of the population (heterozygous CT) appear to convert only a limited amount of folic acid into L-methylfolate. They cannot fully process supplemental folic acid at RDA or higher dose levels. The remaining population do not have an MTHFR polymorphism and can fully metabolize folic acid.
