Folic Acid in a 5 milligram dosage (5,000 mcg). The CDC and the U.S. Public Health Service urge every woman who could become pregnant to get 400 micrograms (0.4 milligrams) of synthetic folic acid every day stating that two thirds of women in the United States do not consume enough folic acid. Even in very high amounts folic acid is non-toxic (Folic acid has no known toxic level).

If you have already had a pregnancy affected by neural tube defects (NTDs), you are at higher risk for having another pregnancy affected by NTDs. The U. S. Public Health Service (USPHS) recommends that you take 400 micrograms (0.4 milligrams) of folic acid every day if you are NOT planning to become pregnant. If you ARE planning to become pregnant, you should consult your health care provider about the desirability of using 4-5 milligrams (4000-5000 micrograms) of folic acid daily beginning one month before you start trying to get pregnant and continuing through the first three months of pregnancy. The 5mg dose in this preparation is recommended for women whose risk of having a baby with neural tube defects is higher than normal. These women are those who themselves or whose partners have spina bifida, and those who have previously had a child with neural tube defects.

Patients with progressive carotid artery disease showed significant regression in plaque formation with daily treatment of 2.5 mg of Folic acid in combination with vitamin B6 and vitamin B12. (AM J Hypertension 2000; 13:105-110)

An analysis of 92 studies concluded that higher serum homocysteine concentrations are associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease and that daily supplementation with folic acid (800mcg per day) may reduce serum homocysteine levels adequately to reduce the risk of ischemic heart disease, deep vein thrombosis, and stroke. [BMJ 2002;325(7374): pp.1202-6]
