Heart disease has long been the leading cause of death in the United States and every year more than 690,000 Americans lives are claimed from cardiovascular-related events.
The purpose of American Heart Month is to increase awareness of the importance of a healthy heart and to encourage healthy habits that help reduce the risk of heart disease.
The best way to protect the heart is to stay active, eat a healthy, balanced diet, and reduce daily stress.
Can folate promote healthier heart life?
Extensive research is trying to identify strategies to promote heart health and avoid the related risk factors for cardiovascular disease (CVD). Of particular interest is the role of folate and homocysteine (Hcy), causally related to Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) and stroke, as reported by many observational studies.
Folate is an important regulator of Hcy metabolism and helps to maintain normal plasma homocysteine concentrations. An increase in homocysteine is associated with low levels of vitamin B6, B12, and folate. Hence, vitamin supplementation with vitamins B6, B12, and folate may reduce the risk of compromised heart health by lowering Hcy levels, as clinical studies report.
Quatrefolic® has been tested (in conjunction with our partners) for cardiovascular impact, including the normalization of Hcy.
