This is where the onset of action occurs. Many people ask themselves when is the right time to take folic acid. Taking it is independent of the time of day. However, folic acid should be taken in supplement form with water or juice.

    Folic acid levels can be increased by eating foods that contain folic acid. Vegetables with large amounts of folic acid include spinach, kale, lamb's lettuce, Brussels sprouts, and leeks. Legumes such as peas, chickpeas, lentils and kidney beans are also rich in folic acid. Fruits rich in folic acid include sour cherries, strawberries and grapes. Folic acid supplementation in the form of supplements can also be very helpful. You can choose between capsules and tablets.

    3 The daily requirement of folic acid

    The German Nutrition Society (DGE) recommends a daily intake of 400 micrograms of folic acid for an adult. People who consume larger amounts of alcohol have a higher requirement for folic acid. For women who wish to have children, nursing mothers or pregnant women, the recommended intake of folic acid is 800 micrograms per day. The dosage and daily requirement may vary in certain life situations, such as pregnancy and breastfeeding or during heavy physical exertion.
