Carnosine - Anti Ageing from
the Inside Out
most of us consider using anti-ageing treatments, we immediately think about using
topical skin care products. We can spend £'s on creams offering miraculous
cures, only to find the effects are minimal or temporary at best.
starts from the inside and literally grows outwards and although we can certainly
make a difference by using creams we can't ignor the possibilities of what can
be done from the inside out.
Informed scientists have always looked at ways
in which the ageing process can be affected from the inside, examining the elements
which contribute towards the ageing process and seeking a solution based on real
science and not on cosmetic promises.
From the Inside
One of the
reasons why older people and animals look different than younger ones has to do
with changes in the proteins of the body. Proteins are the substances responsible
for the daily functioning of living organisms, which gives protein deterioration
its dramatic impact on the body's function and appearance. Many lines of research
over the last decade have converged on protein modification as a major pathway
for aging and degenerative diseases. These modifications result from oxidation (by free radicals) and interrelated processes such as protein-sugar reactions
to become one of the most important new anti-ageing supplements on the market,
Carnosine's main ingredient Carnosine is not new. It is an amino acid occurring
naturally in the body, which was discovered more than 100 years ago. In use in
Russia for many years, its specific anti-ageing properties have only recently
become clear to Western researchers.
What is it?
the biochemical paradox of life:
- "The elements that make
and give life - oxygen, glucose, lipids, protein, trace metals - also destroy
Carnosine (not to be confused with 'Carnitine')
is a combination of two amino acids (building blocks of proteins), alanine and
histidine. It is naturally present in tissues like muscle and brain, but its concentration
falls with advancing age.
How does it work?
Carnosine works in
a number of important ways:
Antioxidant - Free Radical Protection
Firstly, it is an antioxidant,
protecting our cells from free radical damage. Used together with vitamin E and
other antioxidants, it has an optimum effect.
life span - Glycosylation
Secondly, it may reduce the destruction
of valuable proteins and DNA by sugar molecules, a process known as glycosylation.
The significance of this process has only recently been appreciated. Abnormal
combinations of sugar and proteins are very toxic, contributing to several age-related
diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer's dementia and skin
ageing. Carnosine may help prevent damage from glycosylation, ridding the system
of any abnormal substances and leaving it free to function optimally.
metals in the Body
Thirdly, it is a toxic metal
binder - it reacts with toxic by-products of our metabolism and eliminates
them from the body. It stabilises the cells, making them more resistant to injury,
and boosts the immune system.
How soon will I notice the
Early trials of the product in Scandinavia are reporting visible
skin, vitality and energy improvements within two months of commencement.
Carnosine is believed to offer many benefits including anti-ageing,
ageing, muscle disorders, Sexual Potency,
and psychiatric disorders and other
Energy and Endurance
Russian athletes and Swimmers for many years Carnosine has remarkable energy and
endurance benefits with many users claiming a considerable daily energy uplift.
Carnosin - A Summary
Interest in Carnosine has
increased markedly over the last few years and many experts are predicting it
will become the fundamental daily treatment for people of all ages, but in particular
those approaching 40 and beyond.
In America and the UK, anti-ageing specialists
and nutritionist are recommending it as a valuable supplement. There are no known
side effects or incompatibility with other drugs.
Laboratory research on
cellular senescence (the end of the life cycle of dividing cells) suggests that
these facts may not be coincidences. CARNOSINE has the remarkable ability to rejuvenate
cells approaching senescence, restoring normal appearance and extending cellular
How does Carnosine rejuvenate cells?
We do not yet know
the full answer, but CARNOSINE'S properties may point up key mechanisms of tissue
and cell aging, as well as the anti-aging measures that counteract them
Carnosine normally comes in a capsule form. No
side effects are reported, and it can be used together with other supplements.
