Potent B vitamins in reduced form for fast biological activity. I feel very alert after one of these caps in the morning and do not slump in the afternoon. I believe these would be effective for lowering homocysteine, though I have not had my blood levels tested before and after for comparison. Update Dec 2011: Had blood test a couple of weeks ago: homocysteine up from 10.2 (about a year ago) to 12.9. Had previously been taking a multi plus a 1 mg sublingual methylcobalamin every couple of days, so it seems that in my case this product is not a substitute for regular sublingual B12 (despite the inclusion of 'intrinsic factor').
This is a perfect b-complex for those who have issues breaking down regular B vitamins. I do due to the fact I have mutations on the MTHFR gene which means I can't use regular B's efficiently to break blood/brain barrier and support brain functions. This b-complex is already in its broken down form so it can reach brain easily. I do still use methylcobalamin(b12) sublingually since this is the best way to absorb this unless you do B-12 shots.
