After much study and debate in the scientific community, it is now widely accepted that Homocysteine is indeed a risk factor and not merely a marker for vascular and cognitive health issues. Not only are Homocysteine levels easily measured with straight-forward tests, evidence now suggests that Homocysteine levels need to be lowered to avoid other significant health risks. Why Cardio B? Many doctors add a 5mg Folic Acid prescription to their patients regimen. Cardio B provides a full 5 mg of Folic Acid, eliminating the additional expense of a Folic Acid prescription while increasing compliance. Combined with therapeutic dosages of Vitamins B6 and B12, Cardio B is the clear choice for efficacy among Homocysteine lowering supplements.
The primary ingredients in Cardio B represent the most logical and often used combinations of therapeutic agents for the lowering of homocysteine. Where Cardio B stands apart, however, is in the thoroughness of the formula, creating a synergy that we believe exceeds virtually any other formulation available.
A required co-factor in the conversion of homocysteine to methionine via the folate pathway, vitamin B12 deficiency is common among vegans and the elderly.
