Product Information

Description

beta-alanyl-L-histidine
Supports Cellular Rejuvenation
L-Carnosine is a dipeptide that is found in the brain, heart, skin, muscles, kidneys and stomach. L-Carnosine supports healthy aging and cellular rejuvenation by its effects on two mechanisms: Glycation and Free Radical Damage. Glycation is the uncontrolled crosslinking of sugar molecules to proteins and is implicated in loss of cell function, genome integrity and accelerated aging. L-Carnosine also supports brain function by reducing lipid peroxidation and stabilizing cell membranes during the aging process.

Health Notes

Carnosine

Carnosine
This nutrient has been used in connection with the following health goals
  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary "Star-Rating" system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.

This supplement has been used in connection with the following health conditions:

Peptic Ulcer
Dose: 150 mg of zinc carnosine complex twice per day
Studies have shown that a zinc salt of the amino acid carnosine protects against ulcer formation and promotes the healing of existing ulcers.(more)
Peptic Ulcer
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Carnisone may protect against ulcer formation and promote the healing of existing ulcers. (more)
Wound Healing
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Carnosine, a small molecule composed of the amino acids histidine and alanine, appears to promote wound healing.(more)
Wound Healing
Dose: Refer to label instructions
Carnosine, a small molecule composed of the amino acids histidine and alanine, appears to promote wound healing.(more)
Peptic Ulcer
Dose: 150 mg of zinc carnosine complex twice per day

Experimental animal studies have shown that a zinc salt of the amino acid carnosine exerts significant protection against ulcer formation and promotes the healing of existing ulcers.1, 2 However, because zinc by itself has been shown to be helpful against peptic ulcer, it is not known how much of the beneficial effect was due to the carnosine.3, 4 Clinical studies in humans demonstrated that this compound can help eradicate H. pylori, an organism that has been linked to peptic ulcer and stomach cancer.5 The amount of the zinc carnosine complex used in research studies for eradication of H. pylori is 150 mg twice daily.
