Cardio B, 120 Capsules
Why These Natural Ingredients?
The primary ingredients in Cardio B represent the most logical and often used combinations of therapeutic agents for the lowering of homocysteine. Where Cardio B stands apart, however, is in the thoroughness of the formula, creating a synergy that we believe exceeds virtually any other formulation available.
A required co-factor in the conversion of homocysteine to methionine via the folate pathway, vitamin B12 deficiency is common among vegans and the elderly.
Vitamin B6 is known to be deficient in the typical American diet, particularly the elderly. Even low doses have been shown to lower homocysteine levels in elderly patients— even among those previously supplemented with folic acid.
Betaine (trimethylglycine, or TMG) acts as a methyl donor to homocysteine- converting it to methionine. This conversion pathway occurs in the liver and kidney and may contribute to homocysteine reduction in some individuals with very high methionine, or after ingestion of high levels of methionine.
