I was wondering if anyone knows if one can take to much folic acid? I am also breastfeeding.

I posted this on another thread in "i'm preg":

I found this article quite enlightening, and it's for sure a different approach to the usual take-your-vitamins! point of view. Among other things, it mentions that fa could be a weak abortificant.

My folic acid supplement says to limit FA from all sources to 1000 mg/day.
