Controlling Homocysteine to Improve Heart Healthh



Controlling Homocysteine and Heart Health

By Ellen J. Kamhi, Ph. D. with Dorie Greenblatt
 What Is Homocysteine?
Homocysteine is a normal by-product formed during the metabolism and breakdown of methionine (an essential amino acid that aids in the building of muscle mass and fat reduction.) Clinical studies have shown a relationship between a high level of Homocysteine in the blood, and a variety of health problems including Heart Disease, Stroke, Crohn's Disease, Alzheimer's and Diabetes. (Note: A simple blood test can accurately measure Homocysteine in the blood.)
An elevated concentration of Homocysteine in the blood is caused by many diet and lifestyle practices including:
?High Meat Diet
?Diet Rich In Fried Foods
?Coffee consumption
?Cigarette smoking
?Repressed Anger
There is no specific pharmaceutical drug therapy to reduce elevated Homocysteine. However, studies have shown that a diet high in fruits and vegetables can be helpful, along with moderate exercise, stress reduction techniques and supplementation with specific nutrients.
Hi-B Homocysteine
After carefully reviewing today's most current research on cardiovascular health and its link with Homocysteine balancing, Nature's Answer? has developed an exceptional vitamin/herbal blend formula called Hi-B Homocysteine. This nutrient-rich supplement features Vitamins B-6 and B-12, Folic Acid and Trimethylglycine (TMG), ingredients recognized for lowering Homocysteine levels. The formula is further enhanced with Red Yeast Rice and the herbs Hawthorn, Cayenne and Garlic, nutrients well-known for promoting cardiovascular health.
Key Ingredients
Folic Acid has been extensively studied for its role in reducing Homocysteine levels, and has more scientific documentation supporting its role as a Homocysteine inhibitor than any other ingredient. Folic Acid neutralizes the formation of Homocysteine in the bloodstream, thereby helping to lower concentration levels.
Vitamin B-6 (Pyridoxine) affects both mental and physical health, and plays an integral role in the healthy functioning of most of our body systems. Studies have demonstrated this vitamin's association with inhibiting the formation of Homocysteine.
