Thank you for the question.
Need to be clarified, are you currently planning a pregnancy? Or, are you currently pregnant? If so, what is your exact pregnancy?
Folic acid (vitamin B9) is an important function in the formation of red blood cells, as well as in optimizing the function and growth of healthy body cells. Adequate folic acid intake in women, especially those who are planning a pregnancy or are pregnant, also important functions to prevent defects in the fetus, such as spina bifida or anencephalus. Consumption of folic acid is also useful in minimizing the risk of heart and blood vessel disorders, cancer, depression, and dementia. Naturally, this folic acid can be obtained by consuming dark green leafy vegetables, soybeans, beans, bananas, oranges, lemons, melons, or strawberries.
Consumption of folic acid, both from food or supplements, as long as it is done properly (not to exceed 2000 mcg per day) and with direct supervision from a doctor, it should not cause you to overdose, and also not harmful to your health. The doctor who examined you, with his competence and experience, would certainly understand more about what type of supplement you need. Some women do require a higher intake of folic acid, for example those who have a history of pregnancy with a congenital defect as mentioned above.
Indeed, excess consumption of folic acid in sensitive people can trigger flatulence, insomnia, nausea, decreased appetite, discomfort in the stomach, and mood disorders. In addition, according to some literature, excessive consumption of folic acid makes you more at risk of experiencing autism. However, how much risk is still a matter of debate.
Therefore, it is safer, you consult directly with your doctor or obstetrician who treats you ...
I hope this helps.
