We can check your homocysteine and c-reactive protein levels here at Allied Chiropractic Center. Homocysteine is a toxic amino acid which becasue of its ability to break down connective tissue, eats sores in the linings of your arteries. It is when these sores get inflammed that plaques start to build up in the sores. A C-Reactive protein test will tell you if you have systemic inflammation, and we can put you on a regimen that will lower your inflammation levels. A simple combination of vitamins and another amino acid will lower your Homocysteine levels. An extract from the skin of red grapes can protect your arteries.
