Lorisian Homocysteine Test
The Lorisian Homocysteine Test, is the UK's ONLY home-to-laboratory homocysteine test, and is available at Body and Mind Studio® via our partnership with Lorisian. In recent years, the importance of homocysteine as a marker for health and wellbeing is becoming increasingly clearer. There are an increasing number of studies that show homocysteine to be a predictor of potential health problems. Raised blood homocysteine concentrations can both predict the development of heart disease and strokes; in older people even better than any usual measure of risk including cholesterol, blood pressure or smoking. Women with high homocysteine levels find it harder to conceive and are at risk from repeated early miscarriage. Raised levels of homocysteine have also been implicated in migraine and linked to Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, declining memory, poor concentration and judgement and lowered mood.
That's the bad news. But the good news is raised that homocysteine levels can usually be brought back to normal levels by simple dietary changes and/or supplementation with B vitamins. However, everyone is unique and different factors, including genetics, make it virtually impossible to determine an individuals’ nutritional requirements without assessing levels of homocysteine first, and then monitoring dietary changes to ensure that acceptable homocysteine levels are reached.†
The Lorisian Homocysteine Test is a quick and easy home-to-laboratory test that delivers reliable laboratory test results within just 10 days, and it's a very simple procedure to perform the test.
