Product Description

Pure Encapsulations Homocysteine Factors offers support for the heart. This blend of vitamins and nutrients helps to maintain homocysteine levels and promote cardiovascular health. Homocysteine is an amino acid that is in your blood, and high levels of it is a risk factor for heart disease. Diets that are high in saturated fat and cholesterol have higher levels of homocysteine, so this supplement can help maintain healthy homocysteine levels.
Recommended use: 1 capsule, 2 times daily with meals, or as directed by a healthcare professional.
  • Supports Cardiovascular health
What Is It? Homocysteine Factors provides activated vitamin B6 (pyridoxal 5-phosphate), vitamin B12, folate (Metafolin, L-5-MTHF) and betaine in a highly bioavailable combination of nutrients integral to supporting healthy homocysteine levels and cardiovascular health.

Uses For Homocysteine Factors Cardiovascular Health: Clinical studies show that folate, vitamin B12, and vitamin B6 are vital in the metabolism of homocysteine. Vitamin B12 and folate are required by the enzyme that converts homocysteine back to methionine. Folate is provided in this formula as Metafolin, the naturally occurring, universally metabolized form of folate. Metafolin is chemically identical to the active folate metabolite, 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (L-5-MTHF). L-5-MTHF is the predominant, naturally occurring form of folate in food. Through bypassing several enzymatic activation steps, it is directly usable by the body and provides all of the benefits of folic acid, regardless of functional or genetic variations. Vitamin B6 is required in each of the two enzymatic reactions that convert homocysteine to cysteine. One of the major roles of betaine, also known as trimethylglycine, is in promoting healthy homocysteine metabolism. In a recent study, a betaine-rich diet or betaine supplementation supported healthy homocysteine metabolism in men and women. It is believed that betaine may be especially supportive when vitamin B12, folic acid and vitamin B6 are not sufficient to maintain healthy homocysteine levels.
