    Supports heart‚ blood vessel‚ brain‚ and bone health by enhancing healthy methylation

    Methyl-Guard Plus provides 5-MTHF (active folate) and the active‚ tissue-ready forms of vitamins B2‚ B6‚ and B12 to support healthy methylation for cardiovascular‚ cognitive‚ and bone health.


    Methylation is key to keeping homocysteine levels in check‚ as well as for facilitating multiple biochemical processes involving neurotransmitter synthesis‚ detoxification‚ cardiovascular health‚ eye health‚ muscle health‚ bone health‚ and redox balance. Maintaining a desirable level of homocysteine in the blood has joined healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels as leading biomarkers for the maintenance of good cardiovascular health. Preventing an undesirable homocysteine level is also associated with the maintenance of bone‚ female reproductive‚ cognitive‚ and neurological health. Methyl-Guard Plus supports methylation and promotes healthy homocysteine levels with betaine (trimethylglycine)‚ 5-MTHF (the active form of folate)‚ riboflavin 5'-phosphate (the active form of vitamin B2)‚ pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (the active form of vitamin B6)‚ and methylcobalamin (an active form of vitamin B12).

    Methylation – the addition of a methyl group (one carbon atom attached to three hydrogen atoms) to another molecule – is an essential and vital biochemical process that is involved in multiple biochemical pathways involving neurotransmitter synthesis‚ detoxification‚ cardiovascular health‚ eye health‚ muscle health‚ bone health‚ and redox balance. A number of specific nutrients are necessary for methylation processes to occur normally. Maintaining a normal homocysteine level in the blood is important for good cognitive health. A deficiency in the cofactors that metabolize homocysteine is commonly observed in the elderly‚ which results in increasing homocysteine levels with advancing age. These elevated levels of homocysteine associated with aging‚ as well as low levels of folic acid and vitamins B6 and B12‚ can result in the decreased methylation of numerous substances‚ including DNA and proteins‚ which can diminish the integrity of vascular structures and neurons. Therefore‚ providing nutritional cofactors for homocysteine metabolism provides support for a healthy brain.

    A number of biochemical imbalances that can raise homocysteine levels can be addressed by supplementing with the appropriate nutrient cofactors. These include folic acid (as L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate)‚ vitamin B12 (as methylcobalamin)‚ and betaine (trimethylglycine)‚ which promote the recycling of homocysteine to the amino acid methionine. In addition‚ the breakdown of homocysteine into beneficial amino acids cysteine and taurine can be facilitated by pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (the active form of vitamin B6). Studies have shown these nutrients help maintain normal homocysteine levels in the blood.

INTERACTIONS
5-methyl-tetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF) supplementation is not recommended concurrently with methotrexate cancer therapy‚ as it can interfere with methotrexate's anti-neoplastic activity; however‚ 5-MTHF has not been shown to interfere with the anti-inflammatory activity of methotrexate. An individual taking methotrexate for psoriasis or rheumatoid arthritis can safely take a supplement containing folate.

    I have been taking this Methyl-Guard Plus by Thorne Research for years. My Naturopath recommended it for me when I had some unknown abnormal blood tests. After taking it my blood test reviews returned to normal. I have been taking it ever since.

    Pros

    Worked well for me.

    Cons

    nothing, except it is expensive.
    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Really works. I have quite a good amount of stress in my life & I’m in my late 20s. I started feeling this pulsating feeling in my blood in my wrists, upper chest & near my heart. Taking this Methyl-Guard Plus by Thorne Research along with another vitamin for heart really made my pulsating pain feel less intense & now I feel that I barely get that pulsating feeling when I’m stressed.

    Pros

    It really works

    Cons

    Wish it contained magnesium too
    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Methyl-Guard Plus by Thorne Research definitely works for me! No harsh scent, I’ve seen a difference in not getting pain in my heart or nerves when I’m stressed. Even helps with my lower back pain. No pain anymore! Helps me get through the day too with having higher energy than usual. Highly recommended.

    Pros

    Really helps with your energy levels!

    Cons

    Whoever set the price, it’s overpriced... ߘ
