L-Carnosine capsules, provided by Douglas Laboratories®, supply 500 mg of pure L-C.
L-C is a naturally occurring dipeptide comprised of the two amino acids, beta alanine and histidine, and is abundant in brain and muscle tissue (including the heart). As a protein, carnosine supports cardiovascular and neurological health through numerous mechanisms closely related to the inhibition of glycation, oxidation, and other physiological processes.
Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) are proteins or lipids that become glycated after exposure to sugars, and can be a result of the normal aging process. The presence of AGEs in various cell types can affect extracellular and intracellular structure and function. This dipeptide may suppress the formation of advanced glycation end products (AGEs).
This product may be a useful dietary adjunct for people who wish to supplement with this naturally occurring dipeptide.
