Homocysteine Resist
100 vegetarian capsules
Item Catalog Number: 01435

Life Extension has long warned about the dangers of high homocysteine and has advised taking vitamin B6, folic acid, and vitamin B12 to help maintain healthy arteries.

Many doctors and blood laboratories consider homocysteine levels of 5–15 micromoles per liter (µmol/L) of blood to be “normal.” However, recent reports indicate that maintaining a homocysteine level lower than the 12 µmol/L can help maintain cardiac health.137,138 Because there is no “safe” level of homocysteine, Life Extension recommends keeping levels even lower, preferably below 8 µmol/L.

Studies have shown that folic acid and vitamins B6 and B12 promote healthy homocysteine levels and support endothelial function. In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial in elderly people, folic acid combined with vitamin B12 supplementation significantly reduced plasma homocysteine concentration by 36%.139

​For those seeking to lower their homocysteine, Homocysteine Resist provides a potent dose of 250 mg of vitamin B6 along with 400 micrograms of 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (the biologically active form of folic acid) and 500 micrograms of vitamin B12.

        This is a good product if you don't already take a multivitamin, as I do not. If you already take B6/B12/Folate then you may not need this. Good price for 100 of these.

            I had to discontinue this formula when it contained too much B6 years ago, but it's fine now.

                The right size for the best effect

                By Walter B. from Rhode Island

                from Rhode Island

                Comments about Life Extension Homocysteine Resist, 100 capsules:

                I am always a promoter for smaller pills, even if I have to take twice as any. I am all about repairing my abused 57 year old body, HOMOCYSTINE RESIST is part of my renewal plan, taken in conjunction with results from a recent LE Male Blood Test Panel.
                I want to live to be 200 years old and Homocyctine
                Resist will be one of the keys to my longevity.
