Cardio contains targets amounts of Folic Acid, B12, B6, and betaine to support methylation pathways in the body. It specifically supports homocysteine balance for optimal cardiovascular health and arterial function.
Vitamin B12 is a common deficiency among vegetarians, celiac patients, the elderly, bariatric surgery patients, and people with gastro-intestinal problems. Vitamin B6 is known the be deficient in the standard American diet and is in Cardio because it has been shown to lower homocysteine levels in elderly patients-even among those previously supplemented with folic acid. Betaine (TMG) acts as a methyl donor to homocysteine-converting it to methionine. This conversion pathway occurs in the liver and kidney and may contribute to homocysteine reduction.
Certain commonly used prescriptions are linked to an increase in homocysteine levels due to their depletion of B vitamins and folic acid. Using Cardio is advised for any adult taking any prescription cardiovascular medication.
