L-Carnosine Bulk Raw Materials Antioxidant, Energy Booster,
What is L-Carnosine?
Carnosine is a small naturally occurring di-peptide composed of two amino acids, histidine and alanine. It is found in relatively high
concentrations in several body tissues, but most notably in
skeletal muscle, heart muscle, nerve tissue, and in the brain.
Carnosine levels are abundant at youth and declines with age (40's). Stress and trauma may also cause a reduction in levels.
What is L-Carnosine Functions?
Over the years carnosine has been climbing the supplemental charts
in popularity as a powerful anti-aging nutrient. In fact, it is often referred to as one of the nutrients for
longevity. However, the exact biological role of carnosine is not
well understood, but many studies indicate that it harbors strong and specific antioxidant properties, including amazing anti-aging actions.
Numerous animal studies indicate carnosine protects against radiation damage, improves heart function, and promotes wound
healing. It is thought that this unique di-peptide is the water-soluble
counterpart to vitamin E in protecting cell membranes from oxidative damage.
Carnosine also possesses other suggested roles such as a modulator of enzyme activities and chelator of heavy metals ((i.e., a substance that binds heavy metals, possibly reducing
their toxicity to the body). In addition, it appears to act as a neurotransmitter (chemical messenger in the nervous system).
