Two amino acids‚ histidine and alanine‚ combine in your nerve and muscle tissues to form a substance known as L-carnosine. This substance is water-soluble and can provide the significant support of antioxidants. L-Carnosine by Pure Encapsulations supplements your natural levels of l-carnosine (beta-alanyl-L-histidine). As you age‚ this may be especially beneficial‚ since these levels may decline as you get older.
The benefits of l-carnosine as an antioxidant are significant. For one thing‚ it may work to scavenge hydroxyl and peroxyl radicals. Free radicals can cause cellular damage‚ so anything that fights them is a good thing. It also helps you maintain the healthy activity of superoxide dismutase (SOD)‚ which is an enzyme.
In addition‚ L-Carnosine can support the cardiovascular system‚ since it stabilizes cell membranes and allows them to maintain lactate dehydrogenase activity. It also promotes nervous system health by supporting neurons; these require the effective metabolism of peptides in the brain in order to function properly. Your nerves allow parts of your body to communicate with each other and form essential functions.
Every capsule provides 500 milligrams of l-carnosine to promote the longevity and condition of your cells‚ including those in the liver. Not only does it help protect proteins‚ but it also works to protect DNA from acetaldehyde and formaldehyde. Finally‚ L-Carnosine may positively impact high-intensity exercise performance‚ due to the fact that it is largely concentrated in the muscles.
Take one to three capsules daily‚ in divided doses between meals. At the recommended dosage‚ each 60-capsule bottle of Pure Encapsulations' L-Carnosine should last from 20 days to two months.
