Homocysteine is an amino acid typically broken down by folate, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12. Elevated homocysteine levels increase the risk for CVD. It is lowered by increasing folate to help recycle homocysteine. Increase folate intake via food or supplementation (e.g. multivitamin). If homocysteine levels get worse, consider TMG 2 caps daily.
