HCY Guard®

Formulated to reduce your risk of degenerative diseases.

Helps protect against deadly homocysteine (HCY) levels.

Your body needs homocysteine for its normal processes. However, serious problems begin when you have too much of it in your system and it builds up to dangerously high levels.

High HCY levels can lead to serious conditions such as:

  • Poor cardiovascular health
  • High sugar levels
  • Bone loss
  • Disorientation
  • Memory loss

For your best protection, choose HCY Guard – its special sublingual delivery method releases more of the powerful nutrients into your system than a swallowed pill or capsule. Best of all:

HCY Guard has been clinically proven to reduce homocysteine by 30-40% in just 42 days! (See study results.)

Help protect your health by lowering and maintaining healthy HCY levels – order HCY Guard today.

HCY GuardSafeguard your overall health – keep your homocysteine (HCY) in check

High HCY levels can wreak havoc on your health

Homocysteine can be one of the most overlooked health dangers you face today. If too much HCY builds up, it can damage your body’s most delicate tissues, including your arteries, brain, bones and even your DNA. High levels of HCY can:

  • Thicken and harden your arteries and weaken heart tissue – which can lead to strokes and heart attacks. According to a number of important studies, one of the primary causes of heart disease may not be high cholesterol, but high homocysteine levels.
     
  • Build fibrous webs in the synapses of your brain – which may lead to dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
     
  • Impact DNA function, causing potentially dangerous cell or DNA mutations.
     
  • Leave your bones unable to absorb calcium, causing weak bones and osteoporosis.
     
  • Contribute to the damage done by many degenerative diseases.

Get your HCY levels checked

Unfortunately, you can’t feel dangerous, elevated HCY levels. There’s also no “home test” that can gauge your HCY either. But, it’s easy to have it checked by your healthcare professional. It’s important to know your HCY levels for two reasons: it’s an accurate way to determine your present health, and to predict your likelihood of developing serious health conditions.

So ask your healthcare provider to check your HCY levels to determine if you are at risk. Then compare your results with what experts have indicated as healthy or dangerous.

Don’t wait for tragedy to strike – help protect yourself now

TriVita’s HCY Guard has been clinically proven to lower homocysteine levels by 30-40% in just 42 days! Once lowered, HCY Guard can also help maintain healthy HCY levels.

Protect yourself from the risks, threats and dangers of high homocysteine: add clinically-proven HCY Guard to your daily supplement regimen.

Finding: HCY Guard reduces homocysteine levels

In 2004, TriVita undertook a study of HCY Guard, a supplement for aggressively reducing homocysteine. Our research partner in this study was Mark Mattie, MD, PhD of Bridgeport University and Yale University. The results of our study demonstrated that the complete ingredients found in HCY Guard helped the body reduce homocysteine by 35% in just 42 days which is unprecedented in medical literature.


Finding: High homocysteine levels linked to heart attacks and strokes

Homocysteine (HCY) was first linked to stroke in 1966. Pioneering medical researcher Kilmer McCully discovered that young people with high levels of homocysteine had heart attacks and strokes more often than people of the same age with lower levels of homocysteine.


Finding: High homocysteine (HCY) levels may contribute to age-related macular degeneration (AMD)

According to Johanna M. Sneddon, M.D., associate professor of Harvard Medical School, “We found that elevated homocysteine in the blood may be another biomarker for increased risk of AMD.” The Age-Related Eye Disease Study conducted by Dr. Sneddon and other researchers, included 547 people with AMD and 387 without.

Researchers found that HCY levels were higher for people with advanced AMD compared to people without AMD, with age and other factors being taken into consideration. Also, high HCY levels were linked to a higher risk of AMD. In the study summary, Dr. Sneddon confirms that HCY can be controlled using Vitamins B-12, B-6 and folic acid.


Finding: B vitamin deficiency/high homocysteine levels linked to hip fractures

Researchers found that elderly men and women who were deficient in B vitamins or had high levels of homocysteine were at higher risk for hip fracture. The study, which appeared in the June 2008 Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism followed 1,002 people in the Framingham Study for over four years. Those who were deficient in Vitamin B-12 were 60% more likely to have a hip fracture than those whose B-12 levels were normal. People with high homocysteine levels were 50 – 70% more likely to experience a hip fracture.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Homocysteine, and why should I be concerned about it?

Homocysteine is an amino acid in the blood. Epidemiological studies have shown that too much homocysteine in the blood is related to a higher risk of coronary heart disease, stroke and peripheral vascular disease. It has also been linked to diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, osteoporosis, and dementia. Also people with certain risk factors are more likely to have high HCY. These include digestive problems, kidney conditions, high stress, excessive caffeine consumption, age 50 or higher, lack of exercise, smoking, and pregnancy.

The dietary components with the greatest effects on homocysteine are folic acid and vitamins B6 and B12 – all of which are key ingredients of TriVita’s HCY Guard.


Why do I need HCY Guard? Can I just take B vitamins to reduce my homocysteine?

HCY Guard contains a proprietary blend of eight nutrients specifically selected for their powerful ability to combat elevated homocysteine. HCY Guard is made of the essential amino acids Dimethylglycine, Lysine, Cysteine, Methionine, and Choline, along with the HCY-lowering nutrients Inositol and CoQ-10. These nutrients are found in concentrated amounts in HCY Guard to ensure efficacy.

Additionally evidence indicates that folic acid and other B vitamins help break down homocysteine in the body. Several studies have found that higher blood levels of B vitamins are related, at least partly, to lower concentrations of homocysteine. Other recent evidence shows that low blood levels of folic acid are linked with a higher risk of fatal coronary heart disease and stroke. So HCY Guard’s unique combination of vitamin B6, vitamin B12, and folic acid gives you a clinically-proven defense against elevated homocysteine. It includes 500% of the daily recommended dose of B6, 16,666% of the daily recommended dose of B12, and 100% of the daily recommended dose of folic acid.


What is the difference between HCY Guard and TriVita's Sublingual B-12, B-6 & Folic Acid?

Sublingual B-12, B-6 & Folic Acid utilizes the form of Vitamin B-12 that works best in helping to increase energy, mental clarity, improve mood and memory. HCY Guard uses a different form of Vitamin B-12. It, along with HCY Guard’s proprietary blend of amino acids and nutrients, has been shown to dramatically lower elevated HCY levels.


How do I know if my HCY levels are too high?

It’s a simple blood test that can be performed by your healthcare provider on an annual basis. He or she can talk with you about your score and risk level.


When and how should I take HCY Guard?

Adults and children over the age of 10 should take one sublingual tablet daily or as needed. For maximum benefit, do not swallow the tablet. It should be placed under the tongue and allowed to dissolve in the mouth.


What happens if I swallow it?

There are no detrimental effects of swallowing the tablets but you will not receive the full benefits of the product. One of Sublingual HCY Guard’s key benefits is its faster rate of absorption, which helps you feel the effects more quickly. Dissolving the tablets under your tongue gets essential nutrients into your bloodstream faster than if you swallowed them.


Is there anything else I can do to help control my HCY?

  • Drink eight glasses of water every day
  • Avoid refined sugar and caffeine
  • Breathe deeply several times a day
  • Exercise for 30 minutes every day
  • Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables
