Protect your Heart and Mind
Homocysteine is made in the body as the result of protein metabolism. In healthy individuals, homocysteine build-up is prevented by either the conversion of homocysteine back to the amino acid methionine or into the harmless compound, cystathionine. The conversion of homocysteine to methionine is dependent upon an adequate supply of methyl groups. These methyl groups are found in certain nutrients (eg. folic acid, B12 and trimethylglycine), which can act as methyl donors. The conversion of homocysteine to cystathionine is dependent upon vitamin B6. Research has shown that elevated levels of homocysteine in the blood may significantly increase the risk of cardiovascular disease and age-related cognitive disorders.
Solgar Homocysteine Modulators
Trimethylglycine (TMG) – a phytonutrient extracted from sugar beet. It donates methyl groups to homocysteine to form methionine and may lower cholesterol and total blood lipids
Vitamin B6 – needed for conversion of homocysteine into cystathionine. Studies show those with low blood levels of B6 are five times more likely to have a heart attack
Vitamin B12 and folic acid – deficiencies in these nutrients lead to high homocysteine levels. These important B vitamins act as methyl donors to facilitate the conversion of homocysteine back to methionine
