Carnosine

Carnosine

Because of Carnosine?s role in improving muscular fatigue it has become very popular among body-builders and athletes. Based on the results of hundreds of studies, carnosine is now considered one of the most important supplements for longevity based on its properties. Although the exact biological role of carnosine is not completely understood, studies indicate that:

  • It possesses strong and specific antioxidant properties.
  • Protects against radiation damage and reverse post-radiation syndrome.
  • Improves heart function
  • Promotes the recovery from injuries
  • Acts as a neurotransmitter (chemical messenger in the nervous system)
  • Helps to modulate enzyme activities
  • Works as a chelator of heavy metals (i.e., a substance that binds heavy metals, possibly reducing their toxicity to the body).

Additional preliminary studies have shown that carnosine may also be useful to:

  • Boost immunity and reduce inflammation
  • Produce anticancer effects on the body
  • Promote wound healing. Laboratory animals treated with carnosine were found to have faster and better wound healing rates compared to controls. This has potential applications for treating burns, wounds following surgery, or during nutritional preparation for surgery.
  • Protect against the formation of gastric ulcers, and help heal existing ulcers
  • Assist in helping to eradicate Helicobacter pylori, an organism that has been linked to peptic ulcer and stomach cancer.
  • Reduce or prevent cell damage caused by beta amyloid, the substance found in the brain of Alzheimer's disease patients
  • Protect against cataract formation
  • Reduce the effects of glucose damage and protein oxidation
  • Inhibit (or reverse) glycosylation and therefore slow the damaging - and pro-aging - effects of carbohydrate consumption
  • Increase muscle strength and endurance
  • Improve overall appearance

Perhaps, the most important action of carnosine is its ability to suppress advanced glycation end products (AGEs). AGEs are harmful products that cause great damage to

  • Reduce or prevent cell damage caused by beta amyloid, the substance found in the brain of Alzheimer's disease patients
  • Protect against cataract formation
  • Reduce the effects of glucose damage and protein oxidation
  • Inhibit (or reverse) glycosylation and therefore slow the damaging - and pro-aging - effects of carbohydrate consumption
  • Increase muscle strength and endurance
  • Improve overall appearance

Super Carnosine also contains:

  • Benfotiamine
    • Which provides additional protection against glycation reactions while guarding cells against the toxic effects of chronic glucose exposure. Even people with normal glucose levels encounter damaging sugar reactions over a lifetime. Benfotiamine protects against glucose-induced cell damage via several mechanisms
