Hyperhomocysteinemia






New Styles from English Laundry!










Hyperhomocysteinemia is one possible cause of atherosclerosis. It's a condition that involves elevated levels of the amino acid homocysteine. Homocysteine, in elevated amounts, can irritate blood vessels and can contribute to blockage of these vessels. Physicians consider hyperhomocysteinemia to be a significant risk factor for heart disease, even more significant than high cholesterol.

Three B vitamins will prevent homocysteine levels from becoming too high. These B vitamins are folate (folic acid), vitamin B12 and vitamin B6. In order for these vitamins to be digested and absorbed a full-spectrum digestive enzyme should be taken along with the vitamins.
