Methyl Complex 90 Capsules
Methylation support with folate, B vitamins & betaine
- Features folate 5-methyl tetrahydrofolate, the biologically active "body ready" form of folate.
- Folate may be the most significant vitamin in supporting homocysteine balance. It is crucial for the re-methylation of homocysteine to methionine.
- Vitamin B6 and P-5-P are components of the amino transferase enzymes and are necessary for trans-sulphuration of homocysteine.
- Betaine (trimethylglycine) has also been shown to help balance homocysteine levels.
- Provides vitamin B12, as methylcobalamin which contributes to normal homocysteine metabolism.
|Each capsule typically contains||% NRV*|

Methyl Complex may help to support healthy homocysteine metabolism. Homocysteine is a naturally occurring intermediate compound in the breakdown of the essential amino acid methionine. If levels of homocysteine are allowed to build up, however, this can have important implications for cardiovascular health and neuromuscular function. Methyl Complex provides the nutrient cofactors necessary for optimal methionine metabolism.
Methyl Complex features folate as 5-methyl tetrahydrofolate, the biologically active, “body ready” form of folate. Folate may be the most significant vitamin in supporting homocysteine balance. It is crucial biologically, for the re-methylation of homocysteine into methionine.
Methyl Complex also contains vitamins B6 as Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate, also known as P-5-P. Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate is vitamin B6 in its most biologically active form. Vitamin B6 has many important functions in the body and works closely with the other B vitamins and other nutrients. P-5-P is biologically essential for over 160 vital enzyme processes in our body!
Biologically, both vitamin B6 and P-5-P are components of the amino transferase enzymes and are necessary for the trans-sulphuration of homocysteine. This is a complex description of how vitamin B6 contributes to homocysteine metabolism.
Methyl Complex also contains vitamin B12 as methylcobalamin, which is the activated, body-ready form of vitamin B12. The importance of adequate levels of B12 cannot be understated. B12 is involved in several important functions in the body, within every single cell! Vitamin B12 is also essential for normal homocysteine metabolism. In the body, the remethylation of homocysteine is dependent on adequate levels of vitamin B12.
Clinical studies have demonstrated that betaine (trimethylglycine) may help to balance homocysteine levels.
