Stop Damaging Homocysteine...Stop Plaque Build Up - A Key Factor in Fighting Alzheimer’s
Homocysteine is what starts the whole process of arterial clogging by damaging arterial linings, which in-turn allows plaque to bond and build up on the damaged areas. It also contributes directly to the formation of blood clots by interfering with the body’s natural defences against blood clot formation. It blocks the activation of anti-clotting enzymes, and clots that are not dissolved, form large blockages leading, potentially, to strokes or coronary thrombosis.
People suffering from high homocysteine levels are 5 times more likely to have a heart attack than those with normal levels. When homocysteine levels go up, the risk of Alzheimer’s goes up as well because homocysteine clogs the brain’s memory transmitters.
The one indicator that can determine better than any other whether you will live a long and healthy life is homocysteine levels! Homocysteine is measured in mmo/l and levels above 15 dramatically increase your risk of a heart attack and double your Alzheimer’s risk. A safe level is 6 or below.
Reducing Homocysteine levels
This requires ‘methylating factors’ such as folic acid, vitamins B6 and B12 and trimethylglycine. Methylation factors function to convert homocysteine into non-toxic amino acids - methionine and cysteine - both powerful free-radical destroyers. Artery Plus contains these essential vitamins and TMG at the optimum ratios for controlling the amount of Homocysteine in the blood.
