Health Information

The Amino Acid L-Carnosine

L-Carnosine is a dipeptide composed of the covalently bonded amino acids alanine and histidine and is found in the brain, heart, skin, muscles, kidneys and stomach. L-Carnosine is naturally produced in the body by the enzyme carnosine synthetase.

L-Carnosine Antioxidant

L-Carnosine supports healthy aging and cellular rejuvenation by its effects on two mechanisms: glycosylation and free radical damage. Glycosylation is the oxidation of proteins by glucose resulting in cross-linking of proteins and which is implicated in loss of cell function, genome integrity and accelerated aging.

L-Carnosine also protects the aging process of the brain by retarding lipid peroxidation and stabalising cell membranes. Carnosine generates nitric oxide as good or better than arginine. Nitric oxide helps dilate blood vessels.
