Homocysteine
 
Homocysteine is produced in our own bodies. It can irritate blood vessels which may lead to blockages in the arteries.
 
The general recommendation for Folic Acid is to get about 400 mcgs. per day, mainly by eating fruits and vegetables.
So remember to eat your veggies! yeah Hugs, Teri tongue

Well, now this tells it all tongue "High Homocysteine Tied to Lower Mental Ability"!

I actually debated confused putting this info up as I did have a very high homocysteine level...so all those years were the teacher's lying to my folks when they said I wasn't working up to my potential?! tongue lol

"In older people, higher blood levels of homocysteine are associated with lower mental functioning, new data indicate."
