It is proven that lack of particular group of vitamins has negative effect even on healthy persons, and with patients with chronic condition it can severely damage heart and accelerate disease progress.
Homocysteine is a compound that has been more and more recognized during the last couple of years, due to its influence to heart attack and stroke occurrence.
Increase of homocysteine in blood (5 µmol/l) increases the disease rate and death rate by heart attack and stroke by 50%.
Homocysteine is amino acid produced in organism from essential amino acid methionine. Increased level of homocysteine in blood directly damages blood vessels wall.
Organism tries to cope with the problem by itself and to re-build the “cracks” on the blood vessels walls. If sufficient quantities of vitamins are present in the organism, damaged blood vessels shall regenerate.
Due to lack of vitamins, that should remove the unneeded homocysteine from blood and enable healthy production of collagen, increased creation of cholesterol takes place to fill the damages in blood vessels. Accumulating this bad cholesterol on blood vessels walls that leads to thickening and lower circulation in arteries. Consequences are heart attack, stroke and other blood vessels diseases.
To reduce heart and blood vessels damages, daily usage of CARDIOvitamin® that reduced homocysteine level in blood is recommended.
Scietist Linos Pauling, Nobel Prize laureate said:
To remove homocysteine from organism, active form of folate and B group vitamins are necessary!
Clinical researches have shown that ONLY folate in form of 5-Methyltetrahydrofolate can have effect on reduction of level of homocysteine in blood.8
Research shows that every other person in Serbia has folate deficit. The reason for this lies in hereditary mutation of gene responsible for creation of one enzyme that transforms folate into its only active form that reduces level of homocysteine (5-methyltetrahydrofolate/ 5MTHF).
This is the reason why higher level of homocysteine is created in organism, thus increasing risk of blood vessels disease, heart attack and stroke.
This is why it is important to know:
To make folate beneficial to our organism, first it has to transform into its biologically active form (5-MTHF).
