L-Carnosine Granular, Good Flow Ability for Encapsulation
Carnosine is a small naturally occurring di-peptide composed of two amino acids, histidine and alanine. It is found in relatively high concentrations in several body tissues, but most notably in skeletal muscle, heart muscle, nerve tissue, and in the brain.
Carnosine levels are abundant at youth and declines with age (40's). Stress and trauma may also cause a reduction in levels.
Numerous animal studies indicate carnosine protects against radiation damage, improves heart function, and promotes wound healing. It is thought that this unique di-peptide is the water-soluble counterpart to vitamin E in protecting cell membranes from oxidative damage.
Carnosine also possesses other suggested roles such as a modulator of enzyme activities and chelator of heavy metals ((i.e., a substance that binds heavy metals, possibly reducing their toxicity to the body). In addition, it appears to act as a neurotransmitter (chemical messenger in the nervous system).
