Methyl-Guard Plus - Thorne
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 the addition of a methyl group (CH4 - one carbon attached to three hydrogens) to another molecule is an essential and vital biochemical process within the human body that is involved in a large number of biochemical pathways involving neurotransmitters, detoxification, cardiovascular health, eye health, muscle health, bone health, and redox balance. A number of specific nutrients are necessary for methylation to occur normally. Methyl-Guard Plus contains higher amounts of 5MTHF (the active form of folate), pyridoxal 5-phosphate (active B6), and methylcobalamin (active B12), than our original Methyl- Guard. We have also added riboflavin 5-phosphate (the active form of vitamin B2) for its positive effect on homocysteine metabolism and methylation.* These ingredients provide the necessary nutrients the body uses to push forward the process of methylation. Methyl-Guard Plus is more concentrated, so your patients will appreciate the recommended daily amount of three capsules, which will improve compliance.
