Homocysteine, B Vitamins, and Heart Health
Homocysteine is an amino acid which is found in the blood. It is naturally produced in the body often at accelerated rates following the consumption of red meats. Excessively high homocysteine levels have been linked to a number of serious heart health concerns, as well as with brain atrophy.1
Supplementation of B complex vitamins – B6, B12, and Folate in particular – has displayed tremendous potential for lowering homocysteine levels in a number of recipients.2 Many of these B vitamins are found exclusively in meat and other animal products, so supplementation is particularly important for vegetarians and vegans. That’s why these all-natural capsules are completely vegetarian and vegan friendly.
B Vitamins and Brain Health
B complex vitamins have long been linked to the health and function of the brain, and not just because of their impact on homocysteine levels. The crucial factor behind the brain health support of B vitamins is their ability to support cellular function, working as coenzymes in multiple catabolic and enzymatic reactions.3
In addition to this, studies have shown that Americans are commonly deficient in multiple varieties of B complex vitamins. A deficiency in any given B complex vitamin could have dramatic implications on one’s overall brain health and cognitive functionality. Symptoms of B complex deficiencies include low energy, irritability, muscle pains, a tingling sensation in the hands or feet, and difficulties with mood regulation.4
