Question: Hi, and thanks. Is Deplin absorption helped when taken with food? Does drinking coffee with the medidation tend to neutralize it's effectiveness?? Thanks !

Also, I read several years ago, (forgot the source) that Folic Acid affected PSA levels. Are there any studies regarding this relationship? Thanks !

Detailed Answer:
Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

Deplin absorption is not significantly altered by taking it with food.

Coffee also does not decrease its effect.

Regarding PSA and folate, I am posting a link of the study regarding their relationship in pubmed which is an authentic source.

This study shows that higher folate status can be protective against elevated PSA in men without diagnosed prostate cancer.

Wishing you best of health
