Maintaining a normal plasma homocysteine level has joined elevated cholesterol and 
triglyceride levels as a leading concern for maintaining good cardiovascular health.*
 Plasma homocysteine levels are also associated with maintenance of bone, female 
reproductive, cognitive, and neurological health.* Numerous studies advocate the 
lowering of plasma homocysteine levels via nutritional supplementation.* A number of 
biochemical imbalances that can raise homocysteine levels can be addressed by 
supplementing with the appropriate nutrient cofactors. For example, folic acid (as 
L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate), vitamin B12 (as methylcobalamin), and betaine 
(trimethylglycine) are involved in recycling homocysteine to the amino acid methionine, 
while the breakdown of homocysteine into the beneficial amino acids cysteine and 
taurine can be facilitated by pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (the active form of vitamin B6).*
Studies have shown these nutrients can help maintain normal plasma homocysteine 

In addition to the beneficial homocysteine effects of the ingredients in Methyl-Guard, 
folic acid has been shown to help maintain the normal function of the arterial walls, 
allowing them to dilate more readily and enhance circulation.* Homocysteine levels 
can be increased in individuals in which the enzymatic reaction responsible for 
converting folic acid to the active methyl donor L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF) 
does not function properly; therefore, Methyl-Guard contains 400 mcg of active 
5-MTHF per capsule.*

Methyl-Guard was the first dietary formula on the market to promote homocysteine 
metabolism and is the only one that contains the active, body-ready forms of the 
homocysteine-metabolizing nutrient cofactors.*
