Abstract:

Elevated plasma total homocysteine concentrations are a marker of vitamin deficiency and a risk factor for cardiovascular disease. It is possible that vitamin supplementation with folic acid and other B vitamins, which lower plasma homocysteine concentrations, may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
