Carnosine is a dipeptide consisting of amino acids beta-alanine and L-histidine. Carnosine acts as both an antioxidant and a pH buffer, protecting muscle cell membranes from oxidation both during and after exercise. Carnosine also inhibits glycation, a natural chemical reaction that can contribute to a variety of age-related factors — so add it to your health regimen today.

Benefits at a Glance:

  • Provides powerful antioxidant protection
  • Supports muscle recovery during and after exercise
  • Augmented with vitamin B1 for additional protection
  • Helps the heart muscle contract more efficiently

Vital nerve and muscle cells naturally contain high levels of carnosine. But as we age, carnosine levels decline — making supplementation essential for athletes and aging individuals alike. Our Super Carnosine formula contains 500 mg of this potent antioxidant amino acid, as well as a form of vitamin B1 to boost carnosine's antioxidant and protective benefits.

Powerful glycation-inhibiting agent

Carnosine is a unique dipeptide that can inhibit glycation, a natural part of the aging process.1-7 In fact, carnosine may be the most potent glycation-inhibiting nutrient there is. Glycation affects essential proteins in your body, and can be superficially seen as wrinkled skin.8-19

Carnosine and muscle health

Since carnosine acts as a pH buffer, it can protect muscle cells from oxidation, even under the acidic conditions of muscular exertion, or exercise. Additionally, carnosine enables the heart muscle to contract more efficiently through enhancement of calcium response in heart muscle cells.20 While muscle cells naturally contain high levels of carnosine, those levels decline with age, which may account for the normal age-related decline in muscle mass and function.21

Augmented with B1 benfotiamine

Our Super Carnosine formula also contains benfotiamine, a derivative of thiamine (vitamin B1) that provides additional support against glycation reactions. Choose the right carnosine supplement — add Super Carnosine to your health regimen today.
