Cholesterol and homocysteine metabolism
Cholesterol is both ingested with food and produced by our body. In healthy people, there is a balance between the amount of cholesterol that is produced by the body and the amount that is needed for various metabolic functions (formation of hormones and bile acid, part of cell membranes, and others). If this balance is disturbed, nature provides us with substances that contribute to maintaining a normal cholesterol level in the blood.
Homocysteine is another factor circulating through our blood vessels. It is a metabolic intermediate produced by the body and quickly processed into other substances. This processing requires an optimal availability of certain micronutrients.
