Carnosine (beta-alanyl-L-histidine), featuring the characteristic Imidazole-ring, is a dipeptide molecule, made up of the amino acids beta-alanine and histidine. It is highly concentrated in muscle and brain tissues. It has been proven to scavenge reactive oxygen species (ROS), as well as alpha-beta unsaturated aldehydes formed from peroxidation of cell membrane fatty acids during oxidative stress. It is also a zwitterion, a neutral molecule with a positive and negative end.
L-Carnosine is used to prevent aging and for preventing or treating complications of diabetes such as nerve damage, eye disorders (cataracts), and kidney problems. The specific uses of l-carnosine include support for the skin, joints, digestive system and memory.
Our L-Carnosine (CarnoShineTM) is generated from alanine and histamine by using patented enzymatic process. The process enables the delivery of economically feasible peptides to the industry, and will also completely avoided carcinogenic risk of hydrazine hydrate resultant (potential risk of chemical synthesis process).
