Carnosine, The Fountain of Youth
One of the most popular anti aging substances known is carnosine or L-carnosine. L-Carnosine is a natural dipeptide consisting of the amino acids beta-alanine and L-histidine. It is naturally present in all body cells. Its concentration decreases with age, and its decrease is intimately linked with the aging process. It is comercially available under the name of L-Carnosine, or "the fountainof youth". Ingested through the mouth it reverses the signs of aging.
It has a rejuvenating effect on all cells, and is one of the¨strongest anti-oxidants known, and is a true blessingfor the skin. Carnosine powder helps to prevent skin collagen cross-linking which leads to loss of elasticity and wrinkles, macro-molecular disorganisation, and loss of extra cellular matrix. It also rejuvenates each cell of the skinand subcutanous tissues, and is therefore a most valuable antiaging agent.
It helps the entire body, not only the skin, and it is therefore a more holisticapproach than applying l-carnosine containing creams on the skin only.
Which of these twin brother mice would you have liked to be? Both are healthy andwell cared for. One shows the effects of ordinaryaging, the other has been fed with L-carnosine in the drinking water. It outlived its aged twin brother by 20%
The Facts about L-carnosine
L-Carnosine is a natural body product consisting of the amino acids Beta-alanine and L-histidine chemically bound to each other. Nerve cells (neurons) and muscle cells (myocytes) contain high levels of L-Carnosine. L-Carnosine is NOT a drug, vitamin or mineral and it does not react with any drugs. You are born with high levels of L-Carnosine in your body but unfortunately it decreases with age. The good news is that you can now replace L-Carnosine naturally with a daily supplementation.
L-Carnosine is the most effective anti-carbonylation agent yet discovered. (Carbonylation is a pathological step in the age-related degradation of the body's proteins.) L-Carnosine helps to prevent skin collagen cross-linking which leads to loss of elasticity and wrinkles.
It also acts as a regulator of zinc and copper concentrations in nerve cells, helping to prevent overstimulation by these neuroactive minerals. What is known about the biological role of L-Carnosine in the body substantiates all of the above and other studies have indicated further benefits.
L-Carnosine is a Super AntiOxidant that quenches even the most destructive free radicals: the hydroxyl and peroxyl radicals, superoxide, and singlet oxygen. Carnosine helps to chelate ionic metals (flush toxins from the body).
It is made up of a combination of the two amino acids Beta-Alanine and L-Histidine and is known scientifically as N-beta-alanyl-histidine.
When taken as a natural health supplement L-Carnosine protects and extends the functional life of the body’s key building blocks - cells, proteins, DNA and lipids.
Long-lived cells such as nerve cells, called neurons, and muscle cells, called myocytes, naturally contain high levels of L-Carnosine and these muscle levels of L-Carnosine correlate exactly with maximum life spans.
L-Carnosine is 100% safe and 100% hypoallergenic - it is naturally occurring in many foods and in the body itself.
Studies on the rejuvenating effects of L-Carnosine have shown:Antioxidant: Carnosine effectively quenches the most destructive of free radicals, the hydroxyl radical, as well as superoxide, singlet oxygen, and the peroxyl radical
. Cell Rejuvenation: Carnosine has the remarkable ability to actually rejuvenate cells approaching senescence (the end of the life cycle of dividing cells), restoring normal appearance and extending their cellular lifespan
. Wound Healing: Carnosine has the amazing ability to rejuvenate connective tissue cells and thus to expedite wound healing
. Brain Protection: Carnosine protects the microvasculature of the brain from plaque formation that may lead to senility and Alzheimer’s disease
. Improved Calcium Response: Carnosine enables the heart muscle to contract more efficiently through enhancement of calcium response in heart myocytes
. Cellular DNA Protection: Carnosine protects cellular DNA from oxidative damage that accumulates with age
. Skin Protection: Carnosine helps prevent skin collagen cross-linking which leads to loss of elasticity, wrinkles, macro-molecular disorganisation, and loss of extra cellular matrix
How to use?
For best results: the recommended daily intake of L-Carnosine is 1 gram per day (2 capsules). We suggest taking 1 capsule in the mornings and one in the evenings, preferably at least 30 minutes before meals. Alternatively, 1 gram can be added to a bottle of mineral water and sipped regularly throughout the day.
Easy to take: It is tasteless, colourless and odourless when mixed in mineral water or fresh fruit juice so you don't even know you are taking it ... until you begin to see the results!
Helps revive cells and connective tissue, restoring normal appearance and extending cellular life spans. Prevents the cross-linking of collagen, the loss of elasticity and appearance of wrinkles. Protects cellular DNA and chromosomes from oxidative damage.Your best natural solution to anti aging and rejuvention of the skin is…L-CARNOSINE!
