Homocysteine N And C (Overview)

An elevated homocysteine is a market for insufficiency of vitamin b6, B12 or Folic Acid (b9). These vitamins are part of what is called the "methylation pathway." it increases your risk for heart disease, stroke and alzheimer's as well as many other conditions. Eating more beans and greens and taking a special supplement of b6, b12, Folic Acid and tmg (trimethylglycine) can usually correct this.
