FOLIC ACID IN GREENS HELPS HOMOCYSTEINE LEVELS AND MISCARRIAGE

Miscarriage Over 40, How Greens And Folic Acid Can Help

So what is homocysteine and what does it have to do with miscarriage?  Homocysteine can be toxic to your body and it is something that I have read about in my fertility research over the years.  This blog talks about the importance of folic acid (found in greens) to control homocysteine levels. Read more:

From the article:

Homocysteine (also referred to as Total Homocysteine, or abbreviated as tHcy on lab forms) is a toxic amino acid produced by your liver and usually counterbalanced by healthy cleansing processes in your liver. High levels of tHcy are associated with risk for stroke, heart attack, and clot formation in your cardiovascular system. And in early pregnancy, elevated tHcy is associated with miscarriage.

Your body needs B vitamins, specifically folate, B12 and B6, for the conversion of tHcy into a non-toxic substance...

associated with increased birth weight and longer gestational length. Folic acid also has an immensely important role in the development of your baby’s spinal cord and brain and helps prevent spinal cord problems, also known as neural tube defects.

Some things that can drive up your Homocysteine (tHcy) levels:

Vitamin B deficiency (Folate, B12, and B6)
Smoking
Excessive alcohol intake
Lack of exercise
Excessive coffee intake

What helps if your Homocysteine (tHcy) is high?

Supplement with B-Vitamins (Folate, B12, and B6)
Incorporate foods which are high in B-Vitamins into your daily diet
Address the lifestyle activities noted above

Foods high in B-Vitamins

Folate - Leafy greens such as spinach, turnip greens, fresh fruits and vegetables.
Vitamin B6 - Poultry, seafood, bananas, leafy green vegetables, potatoes.
Vitamin B12 - Animal foods are the only natural source of vitamin B12; but many products are fortified with vitamin B12. Shellfish, such as clams, mussels, crab. Fin fish, beef.

Facts about having Homocysteine (tHcy) blood levels drawn:

Ideally check tHcy levels before you get pregnant. However it’s never too late to supplement with B Vitamins. They are safe, inexpensive and easy to digest.
Draw blood first thing in morning after having fasted from food and fluids for at least 8 hours.
For menstruating women: tHcy levels are most accurately assessed prior to ovulation and not in the luteal part of your menstrual cycle (The luteal phase of your cycle is the second half which is from ovulation through menses). Ideally draw sometime on Days #1-#7 of your cycle
