High levels of homcysteine, or a high "H Score," predicts your risk of more than 100 diseases and medical conditions, including Alzheimer's disease, cardiovascular disease, cancer and depression.

When homocysteine is high, one or more of these vitamins is low. Moreover, elevated homocysteineis an excellent biological marker for glutahione, SAMe, L-cysteine, and methyl donor deficiencies; when homocystein is high, one or more of these critical anti-aging, health-promoting natural body chemicals is deficient.
