This book could have been a thick pamphlet rather than a book -- there seemed to be a lot of repetition, particularly near the beginning. But once I got past all the ways in which an elevated homocysteine level can kill you, the chapters on exactly *how much* supplementation is necessary was very useful, and in our family's experience, has been lacking from advice from the doctor, who simply advised to 'take some vitamin B' after my nearest and dearest came back with a dangerously high level.
After researching this topic extensively, I found this book repeated a lot I already knew. However, I did learn something useful in the recommended supplementation. I have not seen many reference a to B2, but adding it to my regime, has been invaluable for reducing my histamine symptoms.
Easy to read and understand book that explains the biochemistry behind homocysteine metabolism and how elevated homocysteine can affect you. A good book to read and then discuss with your health practitioner before taking action on testing or supplementation.
