What is carnosine supplement ?

Carnosine (L-Carnosine), scientific name β-alanyl-L-histidine, is a dipeptide composed of two amino acids β-alanine and L-histidine, crystalline solid. Muscle and brain tissue contain very high concentrations of carnosine. Carnosine was discovered by Russian chemist Gurevich along with carnitine. Studies in the United Kingdom, South Korea, Russia and other countries have shown that carnosine has strong antioxidant capacity and is beneficial to the human body. Carnosine has been shown to scavenge reactive oxygen radicals (ROS) and α-β unsaturated aldehydes formed during oxidative stress by overoxidizing fatty acids in cell membranes. Although a large amount of carnosine is already contained in a meal of red meat, because carnosinase is rapidly degraded after entering the body, it is not enough for a person to consume red meat alone, and not everyone can maintain a high frequency of daily intake. Therefore, if you want to have the protection of carnosine for a long time, you can supplement your intake by oral or external cosmetic supplements.

Functions of carnosine supplement

1. Carnosine can replace the reaction between protein and sugar in the body by reacting with sugar before the sugar erodes the skin, thereby helping to protect the protein from being glycosylated and achieving the effect of anti-glycation.

2. Carnosine can scavenge reactive oxygen species (ROS) and prevent the peroxidation of cell membrane fatty acids during oxidative stress. At the same time, it also has a strong anti-aging effect.

3. Carnosine can prolong the regeneration cycle of fibroblasts, so that the continuous production of collagen and elastin. The value of carnosine is not only reflected in health care conditioning, skin care and anti-aging.

1.Carnosine in cosmetics

It can prevent skin aging and skin whitening. Carnosine can prevent the occurrence of free radicals caused by smoking, which can damage the skin more than sunlight. Free radicals are highly active atoms or atomic groups in the human body. It can oxidize other substances in the human body.

2.Carnosine in food and medical

Carnosine is not only non-toxic, but also has strong antioxidant properties, so it has attracted widespread attention as a new type of food additive and medicinal reagent. Carnosine participates in intracellular peroxidation. In addition to inhibiting the peroxidation process of cell membranes, it can also inhibit related intracellular peroxidation.

The sensory substance of olfactory nerve can promote wound healing and is especially used in oral medicine for surgical treatment.
