Methyl Complex helps to support healthy homocysteine metabolism. Homocysteine is a naturally occurring intermediate compound in the breakdown of the essential amino acid, methionine. If levels of homocysteine are allowed to build up, however, this can have important implications for cardiovascular health. Methyl Complex provides the nutrient cofactors necessary for optimal methionine metabolism.
Features folate 5-methyl tetrahydrofolate, the biologically active “body ready” form of folate.
Folate may be the most significant vitamin in supporting homocysteine balance. It is crucial for the re-methylation of homocysteine to methionine.
Vitamin B6 and P-5-P are components of the amino transferase enzymes and are necessary for trans-sulphuration of homocysteine.
Betaine (trimethylglycine) has also been shown to help balance homocysteine levels.
Provides vitamin B12, as methylcobalamin which contributes to normal homocysteine metabolism.
