Homocysteine Resist

 


Life Extension® has long warned members about the dangers of high homocysteine and has advised taking vitamin B6, folic acid, and vitamin B12 to help maintain healthy arteries.


Many doctors and blood laboratories consider homocysteine levels of 5–15 micromoles per liter (mmol/L) blood to be “normal.” However, recent reports indicate that a homocysteine level greater than 12 µmol/L can double the risk of heart attack.82 One study found that each 3 mmol/L increase in homocysteine caused a 35% increase in heart problems.83 Because there is no “safe” level of homocysteine, Life Extension recommends keeping levels as low as possible, preferably below 8 mmol/L.


Studies have shown that folic acid and vitamins B6 and B12 reduced homocysteine levels and restored endothelial function. In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial in elderly people, folic acid combined with vitamin B12 supplementation significantly reduced plasma homocysteine concentration by 36%.84


For those seeking to lower their homocysteine, Homocysteine Resist provides a potent dose of 250 mg of vitamin B6 along with 400 micrograms of folic acid and 500 micrograms of vitamin B12.
