About Methyl-Guard Plus

Methyl-Guard Plus is a formula that provides active folate (5-MTHF). It also contains B complex vitamins, including vitamins B12, B6, and B2 (active, tissue-ready forms). The product contributes to the support of bone, brain, blood vessel, and heart health by improving methylation. Methyl-Guard Plus is designed to enable the human body to keep you functioning at your best by facilitating methylation at just the right time, with the use of the most bioavailable forms of the necessary vitamins (to ensure maximum absorption). The product also promotes healthy homocysteine levels with its carefully selected compounds, as a means to improve and maintain neurological, female reproductive, and bone health. Sustaining a normal homocysteine level also contributes to good cardiovascular health, which includes keeping triglyceride and cholesterol levels within a normal range.

How Methyl-Guard Plus Works

The primary target of Methyl-Guard Plus is to provide the body with the support it needs for healthy bones, cognition, and cardiovascular system. In doing so, it uses methylation. Methylation is a biochemical process that can have a major positive effect on many biochemical reactions taking place in the human body that regulate the activity of the detoxification, reproductive, neurological, and cardiovascular systems. In involves the transfer of three hydrogen and one carbon atoms between substances. When optimal methylation occurs, we can reap the following health benefits:

  • Eye health
  • Increased cellular energy
  • Production of neurotransmitters
  • Improved detoxification activity
  • Liver health
  • Normal metabolism of fat, estrogen, and histamine
  • Redox balance
  • Muscle health

Methylation is, in simpler terms, involved in a wide range of biochemical pathways. However, it is paramount that the body is provided with a large number of specific nutrients, so the process occurs normally. Compared to the Methyl-Guard formula, Methyl-Guard Plus comes with higher amounts of the active folate form called 5MHTF, as well as active B12 (methylcobalamin) and B6 (pyridoxal 5-phosphate). The formula also includes the active form of the B12 vitamin (riboflavin 5-phosphate) that has been found to affect methylation and homocysteine metabolism in a very positive way.

It should be noted that when homocysteine cannot be metabolized properly, which is something commonly seen among elderly individuals, its levels skyrocket. This leads to advancing aging. Combined with low levels of vitamins B12 and B6, and reduced folic acid intake, which decreases the methylation process, individuals experience a high risk of having the integrity of their neurons and vascular structures compromised. So, not only the heart but also brain health is affected by low levels of homocysteine and folic acid.

Folate: A Critical Nutrient for All Ages

Although folate is usually associated with pregnancy and the development of the infant, as it is found to help lower birth defects of the spinal cord and the brain, it is one of the most crucial nutrients for everybody, irrespective of age or gender. In fact, folate is regarded as the “doorman” that controls when and how the methylation process takes place. To perform its intended function, though, folate must be converted into 5-MTHF (methyltetrahydrofolate), its active form. Sadly, three of every five Americans cannot create sufficient 5-MTHF from the foods they eat daily due to a common genetic mutation that hinders this procedure. This is something most people do not know. When that happens, you may follow a healthy folate-rich diet (i.e., eat a lot of avocados, asparagus, leafy greens, etc.), but the body is unable to absorb enough 5-MTHF to initiate methylation. This can lead to 5-MTHF deficiency, which, in turn, may result in chronic health conditions (i.e., diabetes) and the decrease of the integrity of bones, nerves, and blood vessels. On such occasions, supplementing with 5-MTHF is indeed fundamental.

Other factors that also limit the conversion of folate into 5-MTHF include liver dysfunction, inflammatory bowel disease, gastrointestinal disorders, and taking stomach acid blockers. That being said, the body also needs enough vitamin B12 and B6 for methylation to function optimally and contribute to activities like the formation of red blood cells and the production of cellular energy.
