  • Folic Acid

    Do people have trouble with folic acid added to food? I added Wheat Germ (which has Folic acid added) and I just don't feel so hot... but I'm also recovering from trying coffee on Monday (decaf, but it was torture for hours). It set in 3 hours after drinking 4-6 ounces and tortured me for 6 hours.

    Just wondering if Folic Acid is a problem. I'm mainly talking about enriched foods.

      I was hoping I didn't get that response! I LOVE Wheat Germ (go figure... most people don't know what it tastes like). I tried it today after taking Prelief, so maybe it won't be a problem? Maybe I should just say good bye to my Wheat Germ for now. Man this IC is killing me!
