I know my question is a strange one but I have an 85 year old mum who HATES taking tablets and I need to get some folic acid into her as her folate blood results is sitting right at the bottom of the range at 4, plus I have been informed (not by her GP I might add) that since starting her B12 injections this could possibly be even lower now - am I right???
I have just ordered Jarrow Formulas Methyl Folate thinking they were like the B12 lozenge only to realise that they are capsules which contain gelatin (I am a long standing veggie and I have bought some for myself also) so another question is can both myself and my mum open up the capsules and put the powder in a drink without it losing it effectiveness???
Quick update for all those people that helped me sort my mum out a few months back - she is still having B12 injections once a week, she has had no falls since starting her injections, her thyroid medication and her high dose vitd liquid, she has more energy that she used to have with enables her to do more, her dizzy spells have stopped and she has lost weight. So all in all a very good result, just a shame that she still thinks it is all in my mind and there is nothing wrong with her apart from old age!!!!!!!!!!
