HeartGems™ Anti-Aging Nutritional Supplement - 90 Capsules
Research suggests that elevated homocysteine levels are also strongly associated with the development of heart disease, Alzheimer's disease, strokes, and increased complications in diabetes, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, and other chronic diseases.
This formula represents what we believe to be one of greatest nutritional compilations for supporting rejuvenative health and nutrition on the market today. Research indicates that high homocysteine has been proven to be a major cardiac risk factor. It also advances DNA aging. HeartGems™ contains the amino acid TMG (also called betaine, naturally derived from beets), which has been found to help support a healthy cardiac nutritional program as well as the natural replication of healthy DNA.
Lowering of homocysteine, an amino acid that can accumulate with age to toxic levels in the body has been shown to have profound effects on many systems of the body. High homocysteine has been proven to be a major cardiac risk factor. It also advances DNA aging. HeartGems™ contains TMG to help support a healthy cardiovascular system as well as mood and well-being.
Recent research indicates the lower the homocysteine, the younger and healthier the condition of DNA. Homocysteine elevation is also associated with increased cardiovascular risks in which the risk rises exponentially above a level of 6.3, as the following chart indicates:
Homocysteine Level < 6.3 6.3 10 15 20
Relative Cardiac Risk < 1 1 2 4 9
Thus at a level of fifteen, the risk of a major cardiac event is four times that of the general population. Also a recent study indicates that a level over fourteen carries double the risk of Alzheimer's disease.
Based on research, it is recommended to take three to six HeartGems™ daily for general health and well-being. Homocysteine levels are best assessed with widely available blood testing.
HeartGems™ is an activated combination of the most powerful nutrients ever studied for supporting blood, vessels, mood, and energy. Homocysteine is highly toxic to blood vessels and its level may be up to forty times more predictive of the risk of heart disease than the cholesterol level. About 44% of deaths in the United States are due to heart disease. The average homocysteine level in the U.S. population is at an unhealthy 10. Above the level of 7, every 3-point rise in homocysteine increases heart attack risk by 35%. Elevated homocysteine levels are also strongly associated with the development of Alzheimer's disease, stroke, and increased complications in diabetes, lupus, and other chronic diseases.
Homocysteine levels are increased with smoking, alcohol overuse, oral contraceptive use, red meat ingestion, high fat diets, and aging. One study showed that drinking four cups of coffee per day elevates homocysteine levels by 10%.
The action of HeartGems™ is driven by TMG (trimethylglycine). TMG provides methyl groups that are known to detoxify homocysteine. A methyl group consists of a carbon atom attached to three hydrogen atoms. Methyl groups are widely used in the body for detoxification and DNA repair. The Choline also provides methyl groups to support a healthy liver and kidneys. The ingredient inositol may also help to support balanced blood levels. Folic acid and vitamins B6 and B12 are key cofactors required for homocysteine detoxification in the body. Zinc is another essential metabolic cofactor and has been provided as a highly absorbable and biologically active amino acid chelate.
Take one capsule with each meal or as directed.
Trimethylglycine, choline bitartrate, inositol, vitamin B3 (as insotal hexanicotinate), vitamin B6 (as pyridoxine hydrochloride and as pyridoxal-5-phosphate), vitamin B12 (as methylcobalamin), folate (as folic acid) magnesium (from magnesium chelate), and zinc (from zinc chelate). May also contain magnesium stearate and calcium chloride as well as silicon dioxide.
