Anti-Aging and Antioxidant Neuropeptide
Brain Nutrient Supports Cell Resistance to Oxidative Stress, Cellular Senescence, Functional Degeneration, and Age-Related Conditions
NUTRITIONAL CONSIDERATIONS & APPLICATIONS
L-CARNOSINE contains 500 mg of pharmaceutical-grade L-Carnosine. The dipeptide L-Carnosine is a well-known neuropeptide consisting of alanine and histidine (beta-alanyl-l-histidine). It is normally made in the human body and found at high levels in brain, innervated tissues, the eye lens, and skeletal muscle tissue.
Laboratory studies have demonstrated the ability of L-Carnosine ability to protect cells against oxidative stress and to increase cell resistance to functional exhaustion and accumulation of senile features. The mechanisms of this protection are explicable in terms of proton buffering (maintaining pH balance), free-radical and active sugar molecule scavenging (which counters the glycation of proteins), and preventing modification of biomacromolecules (thereby preserving their native functionality under oxidative stress).
Physiological concentrations (20-30 mM) in standard media prolong the in vitro lifespan of human fibroblast cells and reduce strongly the normal features of senescence (aging). L-Carnosine clearly has improved the external appearance of experimental animals, and produced beneficial effects both on behavioral parameters and average life span.
L-Carnosine may be effective for age-related conditions, including: 1) Functional degeneration, 2) Cellular senescence, 3) Cross-linking of skin collagen and/or the eye lens, 4) Accumulation of damaged proteins, 5) Muscle atrophy, 6) Brain circulation deficit, 7) LDL cholesterol oxidation, 8) DNA chromosome damage, and 9) Formation of Advanced Glycation End Products (AGEs). L-Carnosine is non-toxic and normally is obtained from meats in the diet.
