Interesting question, Thomas.
Homocysteine is a form of endotoxin which, according to research studies, is elevated in about one third of the population. However, with the proper synergistic nutrients available, homocysteine is converted into a substance which plays a role in the process of the conversion of the essential amino acid methionine into cysteine and glutathione. But if the body is deficient in the synergistic conversion nutrients, then homocysteine remains a potential dangerous endotoxin and fails to perform its beneficial job. According to the study, the synergistic nutrients which are involved in the conversion process are vitamins B12, B9, B3, & B6, choline, magnesium, and molybdenum. Since we already know that molybdenum helps to eliminate Candida toxins, this information leads me to believe that molybdenum, along with the other synergistic nutrients, may be helpful in eliminating the endotoxins you’re speaking of. (All of the B vitamins which include choline are supplied by the high amounts of probiotics needed for a Candida treatment.)
