Through religiously taking the Higher Nature Homocysteine formula I managed to get my Homocysteine level down to 6. YorkTest have provided me with the tool for improving and gauging my health and my health confidence.

The homocysteine test is well worth looking in to.

It was quite usefull and I reduced my homocysteine by 6 points-15-9-by taking homocysteine pills but didn't have to alter my diet much. Still taking blood pressure pills though against my better judgement! My blood pressure is now at a sensible average 130/70 but it might increase without tablets

It is very reassuring to have access to a good means of checking your health. I like to keep an eye on my homocysteine level because of its probable link with Alzheimer's which my Dad had. The test is 'user friendly ' and the result information nicely presented. The discount for repeated tests is very much appreciated.

Homocysteine Test

Discovering your own homocysteine level is an important health check. Raised levels of homocysteine have been implicated in the development of heart disease and strokes in older people. Increased levels have also been linked to:

  • Alzheimer's
  • Migraine
  • Dementia
  • Declining Memory
  • Poor Concentration
  • Low Mood
  • Male & Female Infertility

Between 10-15% of the population has a genetic defect contributing to raised homocysteine levels.  You are more likely to be at risk if you are overweight, take little or no exercise, smoke or drink alcohol excessively. Learn more about the risks here

The good news is that raised homocysteine levels can usually be brought back to normal levels by simple dietary changes and / or supplementation with B vitamins. Understanding your current level and the implication of this on your health is important in understanding how to make improvements to your wellbeing.
