Effect of Folic Acid and Betaine Supplementation on Flow-Mediated Dilation: A Randomized, Controlled Study in Healthy Volunteers
Notes for this study:
|Number of Subjects||39|
Six weeks supplementation of 6g TMG in otherwise healthy adults (aged 50-70) was sufficient to lower fasting plasma homocysteine (12%) which underperformed relative to 800mcg folic acid; blood flow was unaffected. Serum B12 was not affected relative to placebo, but due to a nonsignificant drop in folate and a nonsignificant rise in the TMG group there was a difference between them.
