Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

Can Spirulina 500 mg tablet be taken twice to replace the intake of 2.5 mg folic acid and vitamin B?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

The amount of folic acid or vitamin B available in a capsule of Spirulina is not sufficient to meet the daily requirements of these vitamins. So, it is essential to substitute it by other vitamin supplements.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
