Homocysteine Supreme™ contains synergistic nutrients, including folate in the bioidentical, bioactive form, 5-methyltetrahydrofolate, known to facilitate the efficient metabolism of homocysteine. Homocysteine Supreme™ maintains a healthy homocysteine pathway, allowing for the normal production of its necessary and important end products. These include the sulfur-containing amino acids taurine and cysteine, and the neurotransmitters norepinephrine and dopamine. An optimally functioning homocysteine pathway provides methyl and sulfur groups for biochemical reactions such as detoxification, healthy immune function, ideal joint and cartilage structure, and brain and cardiovascular health.**


What is Homocysteine?

Homocysteine is a sulfur-containing amino acid produced in the body during the metabolism of the essential amino acid methionine, which involves a series of conversions that require enzymes. Homocysteine is a natural substance made by the body, not to be feared, but to be appreciated and controlled. Homocysteine functions at a metabolic crossroad that can affect the methyl and sulfur group metabolism of key enzymes, hormones, and vital nutrients. Many important nutrients, especially B vitamins, are needed for these enzymes.


The Problem with too Much Homocysteine

The circulation of excess homocysteine can damage the lining of arterial walls so they become narrow and inelastic. Research suggests that a raised homocysteine level is an independent risk factor for hardening of the arteries, coronary heart disease, stroke, peripheral vascular disease and other conditions associated with abnormal blood clotting. Elevated homocysteine is also linked with a number of other serious medical conditions, including osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, spontaneous abortion, placental abruption, renal failure, and type II diabetes. When homocysteine is elevated it reduces nitric oxide (NO) production via increasing levels of ADMA which can increase the risk of hypertension and erectile dysfunction.


Synergistic nutrients found in Homocysteine Supreme™ facilitate the efficient metabolism of homocysteine, preventing toxic levels of homocysteine from accumulating. This makes it possible for a functioning pathway to provide necessary methyl and sulfur groups for a myriad of biochemical reactions, especially those needed for detoxification, joint and cartilage repair, and brain health.

Homocysteine is a natural amino acid made by the body during the metabolism of the essential amino acid methionine. The pathway between methionine and homocysteine is a cycle — methionine metabolizes to homocysteine, and then homocysteine recycles back to become methionine. During this cycle, nutrients are synthesized for biochemical reactions such as detoxification, healthy immune function, ideal joint and cartilage structure, and brain and cardiovascular health. The optimal functioning of this pathway depends on enzymes which require many important nutrients, especially B vitamins. Any roadblock during the process can cause an undesirable elevation in homocysteine levels. The amount of homocysteine in the blood is a great indicator of overall health, with the goal being to maintain a level within normal range, as determined by your health care practitioner. Homocysteine Supreme™ contains key nutrients that help maintain a healthy homocysteine pathway, allowing for the normal production of necessary and important end products. This formula includes vitamins B6, B12 and folate, essential nutrients for proper homocysteine metabolism. It also includes trimethylglycine and N-acetyl-L-cysteine, compounds that participate in important biochemical reactions and biological functions, such as detoxification, as well as the synthesis of glutathione, the body’s most prominent antioxidant. The issue with elevated homocysteine Stress, poor diet, poor nutrient absorption, and many medications can deplete B vitamins, hindering the process of converting homocysteine back into methionine. The circulation of excess homocysteine in the body can damage the lining of arterial walls, causing them to become narrow and inelastic. Heavy metals such as mercury and lead can also interfere with the conversion of methionine to homocysteine, and vice versa. Mercury depletes vitamin B12, a key nutrient needed for this conversion. Chronic mercury inhalation from mercury fillings has a great affinity to bind to the amino acids cysteine and methionine, both of which are critical to a healthy homocysteine pathway. The absence of these useful amino acids further affects other nutrients in the pathway, making nutritional support crucial. Homocysteine is not to be feared, but to be appreciated and controlled. The key is to maintain healthy levels, as an optimally functioning homocysteine pathway provides nutrients for necessary biochemical reactions in the body. Recommended Use: As a dietary supplement, take two capsules per day with meals, or as directed by your health care practitioner.
