Doctors Best Carnosine is a dipeptide (two amino acids bonded together) of the amino acids beta-alanine and histidine and is highly concentrated in muscle and brain tissues. This versatile nutrient is capable of supporting health from the level of individual cells up to the body as a whole. Carnosine is being increasingly recognized for its wide range of protective properties. Not only does it help in neutralizing free radicals of oxygen and nitrogen but is also a key metabolic buffer within cells. Several studies have suggested that Carnosine protects cells in numerous ways. By inhibiting the production of compounds called AGEs, or “advanced glycation end-products’’ that are known to impact protein structure and function, carnosine helps support healthy ageing.
Doctors Best Carnosine benefits:
- Unique brain protection
- Fundamental support for healthy brain function
- Protects cells and enzymes against damage
- Promotes cell-level stress tolerance
Carnosine protects cells in several ways, as suggested by numerous studies. It is a key buffer against acid produced during metabolism, helping to ensure a healthy acid-alkaline balance within the cell environment. It has been shown to sequester, or “chelate” potentially toxic metal atoms. Furthermore, carnosine is known to have the ability to neutralize “free radicals” and thereby protect cells from reactive oxygen radicals., It also helps protect against protein damage by methylglyoxal, a byproduct of energy generation.
Carnosine has also been shown to inhibit the production of compounds called AGEs, or “advanced glycation end-products”. AGEs are compounds that are formed when proteins become oxidized by sugars, hence “glycated”. The presence and accumulation of AGEs is known to impact protein structure and function, both within and outside the cells. AGEs may contribute
to accelerated aging. Carnosine may even support repair of damaged proteins. This array of versatile actions suggest carnosine helps support healthy ageing.
