Supplements to Lower Homocysteine

Homocysteine is a critical molecule in the body. We don’t want too much, and we don’t want too little. Measuring levels is a simple blood test.

Homocysteine is involved in:

  • Cell division
  • DNA and RNA synthesis
  • CNS development
  • Gene expression (or non-expression)
  • Immune cell differentiation
  • Neurotransmitter synthesis and metabolism
  • Histamine clearance
  • Detoxification
  • Hormone balancing
  • Cellular energy metabolism
  • Myelination of peripheral nerves (proximate cause of Multiple Sclerosis)

Elevated homocysteine is linked to:

  1. Heart attack
  2. Stroke
  3. Deep venous thrombosis (DVT)
  4. Cancer
  5. Dementia
