So far, I am getting results that contradict each other in my research concerning lowering homocysteine levels. On one end, planet-based diets are deficient in B6, B12, and folic acid which incurs a raised level of homocysteine in the blood. Upon... (more)

I was pretty much going to say what Matt said, so I'll just add this study: "The results of the present 6-mo intervention study clearly show that increasing dietary protein intake from 12% to 22% of total energy, with a corresponding increase... (more)

If I take methyl b12 and folate, will it deplete my b6, b2 and the others? Should I try to take them all? Trying to lower my homocysteine levels. I do have sort of bloodshot eyes which is b2 related, so maybe I shouldn't take folate and b12... (more)

Since vitamin B6 has a role in methylating (detoxifying) homocysteine, supplementing B12 and folate (since they can also perform this role) will likely spare B6 in the body. And because the conversion of pyridoxine (the form of B6 commonly found... (more)

Hey all, I just got my annual blood test. I'm an 85% paleo guy. The doctor tested for my homocysteine levels. The lab (and the Internets) say that the healthy homocysteine level is 3.7 to 13.9 umol/l. I'm a 15 -- far above the max! My three... (more)

You may be a C677T genotype. This decreases activity of the MTHFR enzyme, leading to high homocycteine. Not sure your ethnicity but it is more common in some types. I'm walking out the door now but if nobody else chimes in about this I'll add more... (more)

Hi, what is the relationship between homocysteine levels and collagen synthesis? Dr Emily Deans wrote about it in her blog and it made me wanna know more. This first paper seems to support her idea that it causes a reduction in collagen while the... (more)

Unfiltered coffee raises homocysteine levels. Stress can raise homocysteine levels. Some studies have shown that women's homocysteine levels fluctuate throughout the menstrual cycle. Anxiety before the blood draw is enough to make the level... (more)

I recently found out (from 23andme) that I am heterogeneous (one copy of the "bad" gene) for the MTHFR C677T polymorphism. This means that my body has reduced ability to convert folate into the active form of folate (5-methyltetrahydrafolate).... (more)

I discovered I had this gene (hetero like you) on 23andme and started taking the active folate. Then I had a blood test and my folate was absurdly high. I have sinced eased off on the supplementation as in spite of my wack gene, I seem to be... (more)
