Carnosine is a naturally occurring combination of the amino acids alanine and histidine. In Carnosine Plus, carnosine is combined with benfotiamine, a fat-soluble form of thiamine (vitamin B1), to help support healthy aging. Carnosine and benfotiamine are shown to possess antioxidant activity and collagen-supportive properties and help with the inhibition of glycosylation of proteins (advanced glycation end products or AGEs) caused by excessive glucose/fructose consumption.
Available: 60 Capsules
- Reduces glycosylation
- Antioxidant action
- Protects against metal-induced toxicity
- Reduces diabetes complications
- Protects the brain or heart, especially during injuries such as stroke or ischemic perfusion
- Speeds up wound healing by stimulating collagen production
- Protects eyesight, specifically cataract and other aging-related impairment
Carnosine Plus is a synergistic combination of two powerful, naturally occurring, anti-glycating and anti-aging agents, carnosine and benfotiamine. Carnosine is often recommended by doctors for patients with diabetes who are at higher risk for the health problem related to accelerated aging. Carnosine is naturally present in tissues like muscle and brain tissue, but its concentration falls with advancing age.
Laboratory studies have demonstrated that carnosine has the ability to protect cells against oxidative stress and can increase cells’ resistance to functional exhaustion and accumulation of senile features.
Proven benefits in studies with a dose of carnosine ranging from 800 mg/day to 25 mg/lb. of body weight include:
- Universal and versatile antioxidant activity
- Increased muscle strength and endurance
- Faster recovery after sprints
- Reduced cellular damage due to alcohol consumption
- Faster wound healing by stimulating collagen production
- Better eyesight from protection against age related impairment
As a multifunctional dietary supplement, carnosine is a relatively new discovery. It is an amazing physiological and 100 % natural super-antioxidant with numerous biological roles.
Benfotiamine is a highly efficient fat-soluble form of Thiamin (vitamin B1) and occurs naturally in small amounts in crushed garlic, shallots, and leeks. It reduces glycation products caused by excessively high glucose/fructose levels, especially inside endothelial, retinal, kidney and nerve cells.
Suggested Use: As a dietary supplement take one capsule a day, or as recommended by your health care professional.
Does Not Contain: Gluten, wheat, soy, tree nuts, peanuts, eggs, dairy, fish, or crustacean shellfish.
Pregnancy and nursing: There is not enough reliable information about the safety of taking carnosine if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Stay on the safe side and before taking discuss the use of carnosine with your health care professional.
Low blood pressure: Carnosine might lower blood pressure. In theory, taking carnosine might make blood pressure become too low in people with low blood pressure. Before taking discuss its use with your health care professional.
