Life Extension has long warned members about the dangers of high homocysteine and has advised supplementation with vitamin B6, folic acid, and vitamin B12 to help maintain healthy arteries. Many doctors and blood laboratories consider homocysteine levels of 5ﾖ15 micromoles per liter blood to be normal. However, recent reports indicate that a homocysteine level greater than 12 micromoles per liter can double the risk of heart attack. One study found that each 3 micromole per liter increase in homocysteine caused a 35% increase in heart problems. Because there is no safe level of homocysteine, Life Extension recommends keeping levels as low as possible, preferably below 8 micromoles per liter.
