Vitamin U from Cabbage Juice

  • Lower homocysteine while reducing cardiovascular inflammation and increasing production of methionine and SAM.
  • Lower SAH levels to improve methylation and increase glutathione to aid in liver detoxification.
  • Add the beneficial sulfur containing SMM to reduce intestinal inflammation.

Cabbage juice, is a remarkable preparation that can be made at home for the potential benefit it provides in lowering SAH, Homocysteine.

This key ingredients in cabbage are S-methylmethionine (SMM) and glutamine. Together they offer a remarkable opportunity to aid in liver detoxification, reducing inflammation in the digestive system, and supporting cardiovascular health.

Simple Diet Enhancement to Improve Homocysteine and SAH

Sulfur-Containing Amino Acids in Dietary Interventions Foods rich in sulfur-containing amino acids, like cabbage, facilitate the conversion of homocysteine to cysteine, supporting both homocysteine (and SAH) reduction and the upregulation of glutathione synthesis. Cardiovascular health improves with lowered homocysteine and improved liver detoxification aids in total body improvement. Higher levels of SMM

Cabbage Juice is a perfect source of S-methylmethionine (SMM) and glutamine. These primary ingredients provide an ideal solution to manageme of homocysteine and SAH, while aiding in the health of intestinal inflammation. Daily consumption of cabbage juice will aid in the methylation processes, support liver detoxification, and could significantly reduce gastrointestinal inflammation, particularly those with peptic ulcers.

Homocysteine and SAH

Homocysteine Metabolism - Homocysteine, a byproduct of methionine metabolism, plays a important role in health. It can either be recycled back into methionine with the aid of vitamins B12 and folate, or it can be converted into cysteine through the trans-sulfuration pathway. This pathway is vital because cysteine is essential, along with vitamin B6 for converting homocysteine to  glutathione, the body's most important naturally produced antioxidant.

Glutathione's Role in Detoxification -  Glutathione protects cells from damage and is essential for detoxification processes, particularly in the liver. It also plays a key role in reducing inflammation in the stomach and intestines, crucial for maintaining digestive health.

The Link Between Homocysteine and SAH

SAH and its Relationship with Homocysteine S-adenosylhomocysteine (SAH) is closely linked to homocysteine. It sits in the methylation pathway between SAM and homocysteine. If homocysteine is not processed and builds up, it will lead to a bottleneck in the methylation pathway and SAH will build up. SAH is an inhibitor of methylation. When homocysteine levels are improved, it does so either by converting to methionine or to glutathione. In either case, SAH levels will also improve SAH and the bottle neck cleared in the methylation pathway. With improved SAH methylation can be improved, and done so without relying on supplementing SAMe or methionine.
