Homocystrol + TMG
Homocystrol + TMG, provided by Douglas Laboratories, contains significant amounts of activated B vitamins, trimethylglycine (betaine) and choline needed for proper metabolism of homocysteine, and the support of metabolic synthetic processes requiring methyl donors.
Homocystrol + TMG now provides bioavailable forms of B vitamins. Methylcobalamin, methylfolate, pyridoxal-5-phosphate, and riboflavin-5-phosphate are the forms most readily used by the body and do not require conversion once consumed.
Homocysteinemia, or elevated plasma homocysteine, is a major factor that can influence poor cardiovascular health. High plasma levels of homocysteine appear to have negative effects on the vasculature, impairing the functional abilities of endothelial and smooth muscle cells. Suboptimal intake of several B vitamins, renal failure, environment, diet, stress, and genetic defects in homocysteine metabolism can all contribute to abnormal homocysteine levels.
Homocysteine is a sulfur containing amino acid that is created in the body from methionine, an essential amino acid derived solely from dietary intake. Methionine is metabolized into homocysteine via an intermediate, S- adenosylmethionine. Homocysteine can be metabolized to produce cysteine, a nonessential sulfur-containing amino acid, or it can be remethylated to methionine.
Homocystrol + TMG may be a useful dietary supplement for individuals who wish to support healthy homocysteine metabolism and metabolic processes that require methyl donation.
