Scientific evidence indicates healthy homocysteine levels are important for heart health.*Research demonstrates that elevated homocysteine is associated with an increased risk of developing several devastating illnesses including heart attacks, strokes, Alzheimer’s disease, macular degeneration, and osteoporotic bone fractures.
Homocysteine is produced from the amino acid methionine and remethylated to methionine, which requires vitamin B12 and folic acid. Homocysteine can also be reduced to cysteine through what is known as the transsulfuration pathway, which requires adequate levels of vitamin B6. Homocysteine levels are raised by: tobacco abuse, high cholesterol, coffee consumption, alcohol, high calorie diets, sedentary lifestyles, renal insufficiency, hypothyroidism, and theophylline. Moreover, low levels of B vitamins (folic acid, B6, and B12) also contribute to elevated homocysteine.
HomocysteineFormula is a nutritional supplement that combines potent amounts of vitamins B6, B12, and folic acid and is designed for people who have high homocysteine levels.Because of significant variations in response among people taking this formula, it is best to monitor blood levels of homocysteine.
