Heart Health: Managing Homocysteine

Hey everyone and happy Monday! I hope you all had a very nice weekend~

I have a great video to share with you today on an important yet little known cardiac risk factor called Homocysteine. This amino acid can have a negative impact on your heart health and may speak to key nutritional deficiencies that may also predispose you to Alzheimer’s and other degenerative diseases.

In the video you will learn what homocysteine is, how to know if it is elevated in you, what nutrients will help protect you from elevated homocysteine levels and what foods to eat to get those key nutrients. Even if you don’t have heart disease in your family, you will want to watch today’s video to protect yourself from any issues down the road.

Unfortunately, most people focus on their cholesterol levels and blood pressure as indicators for heart disease. While these two risk factors are definitely contributors, so is an elevated homocysteine. It is important to know where you stand with all your risk factors so you can go about making the changes necessary to maintain your health.

Once you’ve watched the video I’d love to hear from YOU! Have you ever been told that you have a high homocysteine? If so, what did you so to manage it? Did you change your diet? Take a supplement? I’d love to hear how you treated it in the comments below…

It is fairly easy to get well and stay well by just making a few key shifts in your diet. Anything that you can do to reduce your risk factors for heart disease while enhancing the quality of your life is worth the effort…

Wishing you a very happy and healthy week!
