L-Carnosine (carnosine) is important for many normal body functions including the proper function of the brain, muscles, heart, liver and kidneys*
Carnosine can be found primarily in meat (“carn”, the root word, means flesh). This nutrient is composed of two amino acids (dipeptide) – ß-alanine and L-histidine. It is highly concentrated in the brain.
Aging causes carnosine to decline in the body but supplementation can restore adequate levels.* Carnosine has become a popular nutrient for healthy aging and reported to support healthy aging of the brain.* Carnosine has a variety of antioxidant activity qualities and seems to interfere with certain chemicals that are culprits in oxidative stress as we age.*
This nutrient is also reported to help in the regulation of the electrical charges in excitable tissue.* Studies have also shown that L-Carnosine is important to cellular health and neutralizes the formation of lactic acid during intense exercising.*
Kirkman’s L-Carnosine is made from L-Carnosine of exceptional quality and purity. Zinc may be taken with L-Carnosine for additional nutritional support.
