Pure Vegan Homocysteine Control Spray contains vitamin B12, folic acid, vitamin B6, and TMG (trimethylglycine). These key nutrients can help convert homocysteine to other substances, preventing an unwanted buildup of homocysteine. Homocysteine is a toxic amino acid formed in the body when other amino acids in your blood are broken down by normal body processes. High levels of homocysteine can lead to blood clotting and narrowing of arteries making it a major threat to heart health, brain disease and stress. The amount of homocysteine in the blood is regulated by three vitamins: folic acid, vitamin B12, and vitamin B6.
According to an article in the Journal of the American Medical Association, one analysis of several studies found that folic acid cut down homocysteine levels by about 25%. When folic acid was combined with vitamin B12, homocysteine levels sank another 7%. In another study conducted by the Nurses’ Health Study, the risk of heart attack or death from heart disease was nearly halved among women who consumed the most folic acid and vitamin B6 from diet and supplements compared with those who consumed the least.
Vitamin B12 can only naturally be found in animal products. People who do not eat any meat, fish, poultry, or dairy products must make sure to include a vitamin B12 supplement in their diet. Vitamin B12 helps support adrenal function, helps calm and maintain a healthy nervous system, and is necessary for key metabolic processes. Vitamin B12 is important to DNA synthesis and maintaining healthy nerve cells. Vitamin B12 deficiency symptoms may include jaundice, difficulty thinking and reasoning, memory loss, weakness, fatigue and anemia.
Vitamin B6 is needed for more than 100 enzyme reactions involved in metabolism. It is also involved in immune function as well as brain development during pregnancy and infancy. Vitamin B6 must be obtained from food and/or supplements as humans cannot make it. People who don’t get enough vitamin B6 can have a range of symptoms, including anemia, rashes, scaly skin on the lips, cracks at the corners of the mouth, and a swollen tongue. Other symptoms of very low vitamin B6 levels include confusion, depression and a weak immune system.
Folic acid is a synthetic form of folate, a B vitamin found naturally in various fruits, vegetables, and legumes. Folate is needed to produce and maintain new cells, especially red blood cells, and to keep nerve cells functioning properly. Folate rich diets have been associated with the decreased risk of cardiovascular disease. Folic acid aids in rapid cell devision and growth, production of healthy red blood cells, and enhances brain health. Symptoms of a folic acid deficiency include mouth sores, swollen tongue, poor growth and anemia.
TMG (trimethylglycine) helps in the production of several brain chemicals and can improve mood, energy, wellbeing, alertness, concentration, and visual clarity. Several studies have also proved beyond doubt that TMG significantly helps in lowering the levels of homocysteine in the body.
Homocysteine Control Spray is a convenient, compact, high-quality and rapid absorbing oral spray that supports the cardiovascular system and can help maintain normal homocysteine levels.
