HomocysteX Plus contains four essential B-vitamins and betaine (also known as trimethylglycine or TMG) to support methylation and healthy homocysteine metabolism.
Methylation is crucial for healthy cells, including the phospholipids that form nerve cell membranes. By transferring methyl groups from one molecule to another, methylation helps to:
- Turn on genes
- Activate enzymes
- Drive detoxification reactions
- Influence hormone secretion
- Helps maintain normal metabolism of homocysteine
Unfortunately, poor nutrition, oxidative stress, infections, metabolic defects and other factors can impair our healthy methylation processes.
HomocysteX Plus supports optimal methylation nutritionally with folate, vitamin B12, B6, B2 and betaine in bioactive forms that are well-tolerated by the body.
Betaine is a powerful and important methyl donor for the body, particularly for people who have MTHFR mutations. Vitamin B12 assists in energy production, forming healthy red blood cells, nervous system support, cognitive function and homocysteine regulation. Vitamin B6 as P-5P acts as a coenzyme to healthily metabolise carbohydrates, amino acids and fats. It is also involved in healthy brain development, homocysteine conversion and immunity.
Riboflavin is included in HomocysteX Plus for body growth and red blood cell production and also helps to release energy from carbohydrates.
