L-Carnosine 500 mg 90 Capsules from Jarrow Formulas® may help reduce the glycation process along with reducing the free radical damage in the body. L-Carnosine is a dipeptide that consists of the amino acids‚ beta-alanine and L-histidine. There are studies which reveal that these amino acids are present in abundance in the tissues of brain and muscles. Glycation is the process where the DNA and proteins are damaged by glucose.
Meat and beans contain high amounts of L-Carnosine but when these foods are difficult to incorporate in your daily diet you may switch to a healthy alternative such as this supplement from Jarrow Formulas®.
Scientists reason that the main cause for amino acids depletion in the body may be due to lifestyle changes. These changes in lifestyle may result in glucose damaging DNA and proteins in the body and may result in highly reactive molecules namely‚ advanced glycation end products (AGEs). These molecules may damage lipids‚ nucleic acids and proteins‚ which is why the body may age earlier than its time.
There are studies which have shown that L-Carnosine as present in this Jarrow Formulas® supplement may contain antioxidant properties which could promote healing and repair damaged tissues. There are some private studies which state that L-Carnosine may relieve stomach inflammation and ulcers. There are yet other studies which believe that L-Carnosine may help decrease the activation of nuclear factor-kappa beta (NFkB)‚ which is a powerful inflammatory mediator and may play a part in treating conditions such as heart situations.
