Ingredients found in Bx3 (formerly Homocysteine Control) are Trimethyl Glycine (TMG), vitamins B6, B12 (Methylcobalamin) and folic acid. These key nutrients may help convert homocysteine to other substances, thus preventing an unwanted buildup of homocysteine. Vitamins B6, B12 and folic acid must be obtained from food or supplementation because, like other vitamins, the body cannot make these essential substances from other nutrients.
These ingredients have been proven effective in extensive clinical studies. TMG is a highly effective donor of methyl groups and is a powerful reducer of homocysteine to biologically safe methionine. In the liver, methionine is converted to homocysteine. The homocysteine is converted back into methionine with the help of B12 and folic acid. The vitamin B6 converts homocysteine to a form that can be secreted in the urine. Deficiencies of these vitamins lead to a buildup of homocysteine that then damages the cells and tissues of the arteries.
Bx3 uses the Methylcobalamin form of B12 which is readily available for cellular absorption.
According to the Physicians' Desk Reference for Nonprescription Drugs and Dietary Supplements, oral absorption (spraying into the mouth and swallowing) is much more effective than other forms of delivery.
