UNLABELLED Exercise increases methionine metabolism, which also increases its amino acid metabolic intermediate, homocysteine (Hcy). High Hcy levels increase cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk, whereas B-vitamins (folate, vitamins B6, and B12) can reduce Hcy. Research exploring the relationship between exercise and Hcy is equivocal. PURPOSE To determine whether plasma Hcy values, independent of plasma B-vitamin concentrations, are higher in active (HighPA; > 420 min x wk(-1)) than less active… CONTINUE READING
