  • What Is It?

    l-Carnosine (beta-alanyl-L-histidine) occurs naturally in
    the body's muscle and nervous tissues and is formed by
    the amino acids alanine and histidine. Levels of this
    dipeptide can decline with age. The primary context
    of support for l-carnosine involves cellular longevity

    Uses For l-Carnosine

    Antioxidant Support: l-Carnosine is a water-soluble
    antioxidant with well-documented free-radical scavenging
    activity and is believed to promote cell health and cell
    longevity. In vitro experiments show carnosine to be a
    potent scavenger of peroxyl and hydroxyl radicals.
    Carnosine may also help to maintain superoxide
    dismutase (SOD) activity. SOD is an important antioxidant

    Cellular Support: In vitro, it helps to protect proteins from
    the formation of advanced glycosylation end-products.
    These end-products are formed when aldehydes (such
    as aldose and ketose sugars) and lipid peroxidation
    by-products bind to vital proteins and compromise their
    function. l-Carnosine also plays a role in protecting DNA
    from the effects of acetaldehyde and formaldehyde.*
    Nervous System Support: l-Carnosine may help to
    maintain healthy peptide metabolism in the brain,
    supporting neuronal cell health.*

    Cardiovascular Support: Its membrane-stabilizing
    properties maintain healthy lactate dehydrogenase activity
    of cardiovascular cells, providing a protective effect.*
    Muscular Support: The concentration of l-carnosine in
    muscle may prove to be an important factor in
    high-intensity exercise performance based on a recent
    human study.*

    Liver Support: A preliminary animal study shows carnosine
    has the potential to support healthy liver function.*

  • Are There Any Potential Side Effects Or Precautions?Not to be taken by pregnant or lactating women. At this time, there are no known side effects or precautions.Are There Any Potential Drug Interactions?In animal studies, carnosine has been shown to inhibit intestinal uptake of several antibiotics. This has not been shown in humans, but it might be wise for those taking antibiotics to make sure they don't take carnosine at the same time.
