Homocystine ,  

Definition , Causes, Consequences & Treatment: Have you ever heard of homocystine? Do you know what it is? 

 

Have you noticed how dangerous this may be to your health and particularly your heart? 

 

Has your physician ever recommended a blood test to check your personal homocystine level? 

 

Believe me. When you will realize its dangerous features and how easy you can neutralize it, you will wonder why haven't you been informed about it before. 

 

Consequences of its high levels: homocystine pictures

 

Statistics are clear: its high levels are responsible of 15% of all heart attacks and strokes in the world today. 

 

Remember that the number one cause of death in the world is heart disease. If we could eliminate it we would be able to reduce considerably mortality rates in the world. The fact is that it's possible but you must take action. 

 

What is homocystene? 

 

You probably heard of methionine before. It’s an amino-acid found in large amounts in cheese, meat, milk, white flour...Our body needs methionine and breakdown it into homocystine then converts homcysteine into cysteine or back to methionine again. 

 

Methionine and cysteine are benign substances, the intermediate homocisteine is a very harmful product which has to be converted rapidly. The body use normal or high levels of folic acid, vitamin b12 and vitamin b6 to make the conversion. 

 

If for any reason you are deficient in one of these nutrients, its level in your blood begins to rise putting your heart in danger. Remember: the higher the homocysteine levels, the greater the risk of developing a heart attack. 

 

Important fact about its levels: 

 

The first thing to know: homocystine provides NO HEALTH BENEFIT. If it was possible to eliminate this substance entirely, it would be great because the high erits level, the greater the risk of cardiovascular disease. 

 

So make your test and get your homocystine lab results. How many micromols per liter of blood (micromols/L)? You will probably notice that normal range is between five and fifteen micromols/L. 

 

If you have a homocystine level higher than seven micromols/L, it’s time to worry and take action. The medical literature reports that when the level rises above seven micromols/L, the risk of developing cardiovascular diseases increased. 

 

How to lower your homocystine levels and keep yourself on the safe side? 

 

It's good to lower its level or to prevent it beginning to rise. You must: 

 

  •  Replace meat and dairy products with more fruits and vegetables as well as vegetable protein. By doing this you break its creation process because you eliminate the methionine (Found in quantities in dairy products). 

 

  •  Take regularly enough folic acid, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12. By doing this, you activate the enzymes which have the ability to break down homocystine into cysteine. 

 

I recommend you to take regularly 400 to 800 mcg of folic acid,6 to 25 mg of vitamin B6 and 10 to 150 mcg of vitamin B12.
