Methyl Complex may help 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 and neuromuscular function. Methyl Complex provides the nutrient cofactors necessary for optimal methionine metabolism.
Methyl Complex features folate as 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 biologically, for the re-methylation of homocysteine into methionine.
