WP - thanks for all your help. You didn't sound preachy at all. Sorry if I came off gruff, reading it over I sounded defensive! Haha.<br><br>
Folic acid (b9) is water soluble right? So, if one were to take 'extra' in from food sources or multis and supplementation, it would basically just be excreted. Hmmm I still feel like 1mg isn't enough.<br><br>
More research (and hours in the day) needed.<br><br>
The folic acid I take is in canada is anyone was wondering, I forgot to mention. $3.49 for 90.<br><br><br>
Thanks again everyone <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Oh no, LOL <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I didn't think you came off as gruff or defensive I just reread mine and worried it might have sounded preachy...<br>
Anywhoo, yes all of the B vitamins (and the C's for that matter) are water soluble and therefore excreted daily. If you're taking 1mg daily I still think it would be enough but if you're concerned you could break your vitamin in half (unless of course it's a capsule - which it probably is) and split up taking it in the AM and then again in the PM. Alternately you could take one in the AM and one in the PM. Honestly I don't think you'd need that much though unless you were treating some specific condition. I use this rule of thumb. If my pee is still bright yellow and I've been drinking pleanty of water then I'm good on my B's. If it's clear then it's time for more B's.
