Which B Vitamins Actually Protect Vs. Heart Disease–Not Just Lower Homocysteine?

Dr John La Puma

158 men and women in a randomized double blind trial had siblings with heart disease, but were otherwise healthy. Could researchers prevent their heart disease?

Those people who took 5 mg Folic Acid, which is vitamin B9 (and far more than in most multivits) and 250 mg B6 (ditto�and a dose associated with rare peripheral neuropathy) lowered their fasting homocysteine levels by 38%, and improved their EKGs.

Homocysteine is as important to control as cholesterol and C-reactive protein levels. If you lower cholesterol, you often lower your homocysteine. Try our cholesterol lowering program. Start with free recipes. Know your levels–get them tested.
