Methyl-Guard Plus


  • Methylation is key to keeping homocysteine levels in check, as well as for facilitating multiple biochemical processes involving neurotransmitter synthesis, detoxification, cardiovascular health, eye health, muscle health, bone health, and redox balance. Maintaining a desirable level of homocysteine in the blood has joined healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels as leading biomarkers for the maintenance of good cardiovascular health. Preventing an undesirable homocysteine level is also associated with the maintenance of bone, female reproductive, cognitive, and neurological health.

    Methyl-Guard Plus supports methylation and promotes healthy homocysteine levels with betaine (trimethylglycine), 5-MTHF (the active form of folate), riboflavin 5'-phosphate (the active form of vitamin B2), pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (the active form of vitamin B6), and methylcobalamin (an active form of vitamin B12).

    Methylation – the addition of a methyl group (one carbon atom attached to three hydrogen atoms) to another molecule – is an essential and vital biochemical process that is involved in multiple biochemical pathways involving neurotransmitter synthesis, detoxification, cardiovascular health, eye health, muscle health, bone health, and redox balance. A number of specific nutrients are necessary for methylation processes to occur normally. Maintaining a normal homocysteine level in the blood is important for good cognitive health.
