Nutritionally Supports Healthy Cardiovascular Function*
Folic Acid is necessary and needful for persons with high Homocysteine levels. High Homocysteine levels can occur from:
Genetic disorders, Folate (folic acid) deficiency, B12 deficiency, B6 deficiency, Poor kidney function, Increasing age, Male sex, Excessive alcohol intake and Smoking.
Homocysteine is an intermediate compound produced in the body in the process of converting the essential amino acid methionine into cysteine, used by the body to make hair and other components. When folic acid, B6 and B12 are deficient in the diet to assist in enzymatic conversion of homocysteine to methionine or cysteine, homocysteine begins to accumulate in the blood. Observation studies have lead to the development of the theory that high homocysteine levels in the blood may contribute to the development of heart disease. Data collected from more than 10,000 patients from about 80 clinical and population studies add credence to this theory. Now, high blood levels of homocysteine or homocysteinemia is considered a well-established risk factor for heart diseases."
B6, B12, and folic acid are necessary for the metabolism of homocysteine. Increased intake of B6 and folate may contribute to a decline in diseases and deaths in the US by indirectly assisting in the reduction of accumulated homocysteine in the blood.
