Homo-Cysteine Testing 

What Is Homocysteine

Homocysteine is a type of amino acid, a chemical your body uses to make proteins.

Normally, vitamin B12, vitamin B6, and folic acid break down homocysteine and change it into other substances your body needs. There should be very little homocysteine left in the bloodstream. If you have high levels of homocysteine in your blood, it may be a sign of a vitamin deficiency, heart disease, or a rare inherited disorder.

The body’s metabolism is capable of removing homocysteine within the body. However, if you’re nutrient-deficient, genetically predisposed, or lead a poor lifestyle, the body can struggle to normalise your level.

Know The Severity Of Your Risk

High homocysteine levels are possible a higher cause of heart conditions than high blood pressure readings. Homocysteine is linked to detrimental conditions like dementia, infertility, and depression.

What is the treatment for homocysteine?

If your homocysteine level is too high, you may not be getting enough B vitamins. Most people who have a high homocysteine level don't get enough folate (also called folic acid), vitamin B6, or vitamin B12 in their diet. Replacing these vitamins often helps return the homocysteine level to normal.

Why is homocysteine bad for the heart?

High homocysteine levels in the blood can damage the lining of the arteries. High levels may also make the blood clot more easily than it should. This can increase the risk of blood vessel blockages.

Which Supplements Help Lower Homocysteine

Activated Folic Acid:  B6 also known as Folic acid , has been shown to help lower homocysteine levels. The active form of folate, L-methylfolate, can achieve plasma folate levels up to 700% higher than synthetic folic acid and therefore may be more effective at lowering homocysteine levels.

TMG and Choline: Higher intakes of TMG and choline which is converted to TMG in the body are related to lower circulating homocysteine levels and helps protect the DNA.

N-acetylcysteine (NAC): NAC may displace homocysteine from its protein carrier, which lowers homocysteine and promotes the formation of cysteine and glutathione, a powerful antioxidant.Plus NAC is very effective for protecting the Liver.

Taurine is a supplement that can be used to help lower high blood pressure, high cholesterol, shortness of breath, and to prevent the buildup of plaque in the arteries throughout the body. Taurine occurs naturally in the human brain.Research suggests Taurine can help reduce homocysteine levels.
