Nutritional Supplement Regime

Homocysteine levels are responsive to dietary supplements. It is possible for even high levels to be brought under control.

  • Supplement a high-strength multivitamin and mineral daily. It should provide at least 25mg of the main B vitamins, 200mcg of folate and 10mcg each of vitamins B12 and B6, plus A, D and E, and the minerals magnesium, selenium, chromium and zinc. Supplement 1g of vitamin C for general health (Holford, 2004, p.143).
  • Take homocysteine-lowering supplements – vitamins B2, B6, B12, folic acid, trimethyl glycine (TMG) and zinc. The amount you need for each of these nutrients will depend on your current homocysteine level.

This powerful combination is the quickest way to restore a normal H score, below 6 units. (Holford, 2004, p.144)
