Homocysteine is vasotoxin as well as neurotoxin produced from methionine amino acid in methionine catabolic cycle. Homocysteine mediated generation of free radicals result into inflammation within brain tissues and endothelial membrane. Regular physical activity is essential to maintain homeostasis among biochemical, growth factors, activator proteins and cell signaling pathways and possesses a nourishing impact on regulatory mechanism of body. To identify association we selected 100 case and 223 control, estimated Homocysteine concentration and physical activity. The Chi square value is 25.11 (P<0.0001) and Homocysteine level was significantly low (P<0.0001) in physically active persons 12.19 ± 2.72 µmol/L as compared with inactive 17.27 ± 2.12 µmol/L the t test value was 21.44 (95%CI, 4.61- 5.54). Regular physical activity has found to reduce blood Homocysteine concentration.

Keywords: Homocysteine, Reactive oxygen species, Inflammation, Cardiovascular disease.
