HomocysteX Plus by Seeking Health
Seeking Health’s HomocysteX Plus is a vitamin B complex consisting of the four essential B vitamins: riboflavin (B2), vitamin B6, folate (B11) and vitamin B12. The blend aims to support energy metabolism*1, the cell division process*2 and the metabolism of proteins and glycogen*3. These processes are related to the process of methylation, which involves the transfer of methyl groups from one molecule to another and which constantly takes place in your body. In contrast to the equally popular Seeking Health supplement HomocysteX, this supplement includes betaine or trimethylglycine (TMG), a leading methyl donor.
Methylation & B Vitamins
In recent years, more and more attention has been paid to the relationship between methylation and our health. Methylation is nothing more than the coupling of one molecule to a group of other molecules so that a process can take place. This biochemical process takes place in every cell of our body and is essential for the release of energy. If this coupling process is too slow, it will affect all processes in your body. Fortunately, at such a moment 'auxiliary forces' can be called upon by your body, the so-called methyl donors. B vitamins, including vitamins B2 (riboflavin), B6, B11 (folate) and B12 are examples of methyl donors and therefore play an important role in energy metabolism. The B vitamins B2 (riboflavin), B6, B11 (folate) and B12 present in this supplement contribute to the energy-yielding metabolism and the metabolism of proteins and glycogen, help the cell division process, contribute to a clear mind, and more. The added betaine (TMG) is formed from choline, also known as vitamin B4. Choline plays a role in the production and breakdown of homocysteine.
Evolution of epigenetics
Epigenetics is a science that has been changing and evolving significantly in recent years. More and more we begin to understand that our DNA, or genetic predisposition, does not have all the clues, but that it is the 'epigenome' that effectively runs the DNA by turning certain genes 'on' or 'off'. So we may have mapped our entire DNA, but we are far from there yet. After all, our DNA is comparable to a computer, where it depends on the software (the epigenomes) in which way the computer is being used. The main epigenetic processes in our body are the methylation processes, in particular DNA methylation. A lot of research is currently being done into the influence of diet and lifestyle on our epigenomes and to what extent epigenetic influence can also be passed on to subsequent generations. In sum, the science of epigenetics studies variations in gene expression, which, however, do not cause changes in the DNA sequence itself.
- Powerful B vitamins complex based on the B vitamins riboflavin (B2), vitamin B6, vitamin B11 (folate), vitamin B12
- Unlike Seeking Health’s HomocysteX, supplemented with betaine (TMG)
- Riboflavin (B2) protects the cells, nourishes the skin from within, benefits the mucous membranes and activates the body’s natural energy
- Vitamin B6 promotes energy metabolism, contributes to normal cysteine synthesis and aids in the production of red blood cells
- Folate (B11) helps fight fatigue, keeps the mind clear and contributes to normal cell division
- Vitamin B12 supports the immune system, is important for energy metabolism as well as for the nervous system
- Free from milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, nuts, wheat, soy, gluten, GMOs and artificial colors and flavors
The Methylation Process
Every minute, trillions of methylation processes take place in all cells of our body, which in turn affect thousands of other bodily processes. Methylation is a controlled transfer of a methyl group primarily to proteins, amino acids, enzymes and DNA. Methylation is involved in the maintenance and repair of our DNA within our cells and tissues. Substances that have the ability to donate a methyl group are called methyl donors. B vitamins, vitamin C, biotin, zinc, folic acid and betaine, among other compounds, can function as a methyl donor. Methyl groups play an important role in gene expression, since they have the ability to switch our DNA on and off. It is not without reason that they are one of the most researched molecules in epigenetics. Research indicates that methylation responds to environmental factors and decreases with age. This has made the relationship between health and the ability to methylate a frontier research area.

Supplements formulated with care and skill, that's what Seeking Health stands for and believes in!
About Seeking Health
After suffering from unexplained health problems himself for years, Dr. Ben Lynch became convinced that the cause of these complaints had to be sought in having 'dirty' genes. After ten years of researching, studying and treating thousands of clients around the world, he wrote the book Dirty Genes, in which he developed and refined his method of actively using insights from epigenetics to optimize health. Lynch is currently one of the most consulted experts in epigenetics. He has always been fascinated by the influence and power of our genes and he believes that through the right diet and lifestyle we can work with our genes to create higher levels of health.
