Your muscles and nerves contain a compound called l-Carnosine. This compound is a combination of two amino acids: histidine and alanine. l-Carnosine may serve as an antioxidant‚ protecting cells throughout the body by scavenging free radicals. Furthermore‚ it can help maintain the activity of the antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD). Carnosine's potential support for liver functioning may promote detoxification‚ too.
Unfortunately‚ carnosine levels may naturally decline during the aging process. A supplement like Pure Encapsulations' l-Carnosine can boost your levels to support overall health. It may support the health of your neurons by helping maintain the metabolism of peptides in the brain‚ which may support cognitive functioning.
In terms of cardiovascular health‚ l-Carnosine may protect the cells in your heart. This is because it has membrane-stabilizing properties‚ which can promote healthy lactate dehydrogenase activity.
Finally‚ l-Carnosine may contribute to physical performance‚ since much of it is found in the muscles. It may promote improved high-intensity exercise or training.
Take one to three capsules daily‚ in divided doses between meals. At the recommended dosage‚ each 120-capsule bottle of l-Carnosine by Pure Encapsulations should last from one-and-a-half to four months.
