- Provides the nutrients (B6, B12, folic acid, and betaine) that interact with homocysteine and convert it to less-dangerous substances.
- Prevents high homocysteine levels that lead to many health problems.
Homocysteine is an amino acid found in the blood. Produced by the body, it is typically found as a by-product of consuming meat. In recent years scientists have begun to understand more fully the potentially deadly effects homocysteine may have on the body.
Homocysteine is now associated with increased risk of atherosclerosis, a hardening and narrowing of the arteries. Homocysteine also increases the tendency for excessive blood clotting.
As these conditions develop, blood flow diminishes and may eventually lead to heart attack or stroke. Elevated homocysteine levels have also been associated with increased fractures in the elderly. This is due not to changes in bone density but rather to homocysteine’s negative effect on collagen.
Normally the body converts homocysteine into methionine and cysteine. To accomplish this conversion, homocysteine must interact with vitamins B6 and B12, folic acid, and trimethylglycine (betaine). Low levels of these nutrients result in increased homocysteine levels.
Homocysteine Support provides optimum levels of each of these four elements so that more homocysteine can be converted.
