Seeking Health Homocystex, 60 veg caps

The body’s methylation process is vital for formation of essential cell components such as proteins, nucleicacids found in DNA and RNA, and phospholipids that form nerve cell membranes. By transferring methyl groups (three hydrogen atoms bonded to a carbon atom, known as CH3) from one molecule to another, methylation turns on genes, activates enzymes, drives detoxification reactions, influences hormone secretion, and helps maintain normal metabolism of homocysteine, a potentially harmful amino acid metabolite.

Unfortunately, poor nutrition, oxidative stress, infections, metabolic defects, and various other factors can impair methylation processes throughout the body. To nutritionally support optimal methylation capacity, this product supplies folate, vitamin B12, and B6.

Vitamin B12 is crucial to the formation of healthy red blood cells, energy production, nervous system support, cognitive function, and homocysteine regulation. Although cyanocobalamin is the most commonly used form of vitamin B12 in dietary supplements, it must be converted by enzymes into an active coenzyme form to be useful. Nutritional inadequacies, enzyme defects, and tissue abnormalities can reduce the body’s ability to synthesize the active forms of B12.

In contrast, vitamin B12 as methylcobalamin is a “body-ready” form with metabolic benefits that may not be provided by other forms of vitamin B12. It appears that methylcobalamin may be particularly useful for individuals with impaired methylation capacity, including those with elevated homocysteine or neurological impairments.

Active form of Folate - This B-vitamin is crucial for generating red blood cells, regulating homocysteine metabolism, assisting DNA repair, and supporting neurological processes. Metafolin® L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate (L-5-MTHF), an active form of folate, is included in this product to help ensure more immediate effects on metabolism compared to folic acid, the form of folate commonly used in fortified foods and supplements.

Active coenzyme form of B6 - Vitamin B6 is necessary for many aspects of health including protein and amino acid metabolism, red blood cell formation, normal brain function, and synthesis of antibodies important for optimal immune responses. Pyridoxal 5’-phosphate (P-5-P) is a body-ready form with metabolic benefits that may not be provided by other forms of vitamin B6. Although pyridoxine hydrochloride is the most commonly used form of vitamin B6 in dietary supplements, it must be converted to the active coenzyme form, P-5-P, to be useful. Nutritional inadequacies, certain medications, compromised liver function, and enzyme defects can reduce the body’s ability to convert B6 forms such as pyridoxine hydrochloride to P-5-P. In contrast, vitamin B6 as P-5-P is already fully “active” and readily usable, as it does not require further transformation in the body.

Seeking Health HomocysteX supplies bioactive forms of four essential B-vitamins to synergistically support methylation processes and normal homocysteine metabolism. This formula is exceptional for those with defective MTHFR genes. Taking just 5-MTHF is not sufficient for those with MTHFR mutations, and Homocystex includes these other ingredients to help lower homocysteine and support the methylation cycle.

Individuals most at increased risk for vitamin B12, folate, and vitamin B6 deficiencies are the elderly, vegetarians, and individuals with ulcers, Crohn’s disease, and bacterial overgrowth. This dietary supplement may be especially beneficial for persons with impaired gastrointestinal absorptive function due to aging, illness, or surgery.

Suggested Use: 1 capsule daily with food

About Seeking Health, the company

Dr. Ben Lynch, founder and Chief Medical Officer of Seeking Health, is a naturopathic physician. While majoring in Cell and Molecular biology at the University of Washington, Dr. Ben took a trip through the South Pacific and Southeast Asia that changed his outlook on traditional medicine, and his life.

During this trip, Dr. Ben hiked through the forests, mountains and coasts of Tasmania, worked a cattle ranch in the Outback of Australia, and volunteered with Mother Theresa in Calcutta. He lived in Fiji with a family having no electricity or plumbing, experienced the Himalayan Mountains of Northern India, worked a fruit orchard in New Zealand, and returned to America with an impression of a different form of medicine than he had ever experienced with his mainstream medical education.

This profound experience led Dr. Ben to Bastyr University, and he studied the Mind-Body Connection, Environmental Medicine, Functional Medicine, and Epigenetics.

Dr. Ben saw the huge need for people to obtain foundational nutrients, and Seeking Health was born. Without foundational nutrients, biochemical dysfunction occurs and causes symptoms. Doctor after doctor and person after person do not understand the absolute requirement for our bodies to have the tools to maintain function.

  • • Without water, we die.
  • • Without food, we die.
  • • Without probiotics, we get digestive disorders.
  • • Without multivitamins, we become depressed, fatigued and sick.

“If one supports their bodily systems, especially their digestion and mental health, with pure, highly absorbable, well-formulated nutrients, the ability to remain healthy and vital significantly increases. We want your foundation rock solid and we provide the tools to do so.”

-Dr. Ben Lynch, founder of Seeking Health

Seeking Health believes that the root cause for many health conditions and supplements stem from ineffective digestion, environmental exposures, poor diet, and lack of a healthy social outlet and inlet.

  • • Once digestion is restored and optimized with the best probiotics, digestive enzymes, stomach acid and intestinal repair nutrients, one is able to absorb nutrients from foods and high quality multivitamins.
  • • Once environmental exposures are reduced, one is able to reduce toxic burden which then frees up nutrients to work in promoting health and preventing disease.
  • • Once diet is optimized, nutrients flood in, energy increases, blood sugar stabilizes and the immune system balances.
  • • Creating a social outlet and inlet allows the parasympathetic nervous system to regain control over the reactive sympathetic nervous system, allowing countless nutrients to be used proactively and in a protective manner instead of being wasted on producing stress hormones.

Seeking Health is here to see you get better, and stay better. Their true passion is prevention.

Seeking Health is based in Bellingham, Washington and operated and managed by a team dedicated to bringing you better health through the best quality supplements, prebiotics, probiotics, and multivitamins.

Seeking Health brings you effective formulas produced without preservatives, colors, titanium dioxide, coloring, or gluten.

    Great product for women with MTHFR

    "One month on Homocystex changed my health dramatically."

    Posted on 10/16/2012

    I was taking several things my doctor recommended to help my MTHFR double mutation. After 5 months there was very little change. I took the Homocystex and after 1 month my health changed dramatically. I recommended it to my sister who has this same mutation and she had the same results. Thanks so much for a product that is helping so many.
