Overview: Homocysteine Balance contains synergistic nutrients, including our proprietary NatureFolate™ blend of active isomer naturally-occurring folates, known to facilitate the efficient metabolism of homocysteine. Homocysteine Balance 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 Balance 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 myriad biochemical reactions, especially those needed for detoxification, joint and cartilage repair, and brain health.

CoQ10 is a non-GMO form of ubiquinol, which is the reduced, antioxidant form of CoQ10. Both ubiquinone and ubiquinol are critical to the cellular ATP (energy) production cycle. Without the presence of both ubiquinone and ubiquinol within the body’s cells, cellular energy cannot be generated or sustained. The ability to convert ubiquinone to ubiquinol may diminish with age and with increased oxidative stress in certain individuals.*
