Carnosine is a multifunctional dipeptide made up of the amino acids beta-alanine and L-histidine. It is found both in food and in the human body. Long lived cells such as nerve cells or neurons and muscle cells or myocytes contain high levels of carnosine. Muscle levels of carnosine correlate with the maximum life spans of animals. Life Extension Super Carnosine has a number of antioxidant properties and has been shown to be an anti-glycating agent.
Life Extension Super Carnosine has the ability to suppress formation of advanced glycation end products (AGEs) and inhibit the formation of reactive oxygen species (ROS), a culprit in oxidative stress that can lead to age-related conditions. Carnosine levels decline with age and muscle levels decline 63% from age 10 to age 70. Life Extension Super Carnosine may help with the normal age-related decline in muscle mass and function.
Life Extension Super Carnosine may act as a pH buffer, and may help to protect muscle cell membranes from oxidation under the acidic conditions of muscular exertion. It may help to enable the heart muscle to contract more efficiently. Life Extension Super Carnosine may help with enhancement of calcium response in heart myocytes.
Aging causes damage to the body’s proteins. One underlying mechanism behind this damage is glycation. Glycation involves the non-enzyme controlled cross linking of proteins or lipids and sugars to form non functioning structures in the body. The process of glycation can be superficially seen as wrinkled skin, and may cause age related neurologic, vascular, and eye problems. Life Extension Super Carnosine is a unique dipeptide that may help to interfere with the glycation process.
Life Extension Super Carnosine contains Benfotiamine, a derivative of thiamine or vitamin B1, and may help to provide additional protection against glycation reactions. Even people with normal glucose levels encounter damaging sugar reactions over a lifetime. Benfotiamine protects against glucose-induced cell damage via several mechanisms.
