Vessel Care® is a comprehensive formula that features L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate—a body-ready, nature identical folate—along with vitamins B6 and methylated B12, trimethylglycine, and choline. Together, these nutrients support methylation, which promotes healthy homocysteine metabolism. Completing the formula are intrinsic factor, which promotes absorption of vitamin B12 and zinc for added support.*
- Provides key nutrients involved in homocysteine metabolism.*
- Provides beneficial levels of folate, vitamins B12 and B6, trimethylglycine, and choline for enhanced methylation.*
- Intrinsic factor promotes absorption of vitamin B12.
- Providing two forms of folate helps ensure better folate nutrition—especially in those with genetic variations in folate metabolism.

Q.How does Vessel Care® compare to other products or approaches?
In addition to folic acid, the blend of biologically active folates in Vessel Care may offer an advantage for those with genetic variations in folate metabolism. It also provides intrinsic factor, a glycoprotein that promotes intestinal absorption of vitamin B12. This product contains only natural ingredients for a safer approach.
Q.How does Vessel Care® work?
It provides a targeted blend of multiple nutrients shown to support healthy methylation—folate, trimethylglycine, choline, and vitamins B6 and B12. Methylation influences many areas of health. In the cardiovascular system, healthy methylation promotes healthy homocysteine levels, which in turn influence blood vessel (vascular) health and blood flow (circulation).*
Q.How long is Vessel Care® typically recommended?
This formula was designed for cardiovascular health support on a daily basis where appropriate. Your health care professional may recommend a follow-up visit at 12 weeks, for example, to re-evaluate markers of cardiovascular health. Individual results may vary. For best results, follow your health care professional's guidelines.*
Q.Who would benefit from Vessel Care®?
Health care professionals recommend this product to support healthy cardiovascular function, including support for healthy methylation to promote healthy homocysteine levels (a biomarker of cardiovascular health). It may also offer an absorption advantage for folate and vitamin B12.*
Q.Why is Vessel Care® safe?
It contains a blend of natural ingredients with an excellent safety profile. Plus, Metagenics' manufacturing facility has 3 certifications for good manufacturing practices to ensure the highest quality.
