L-Carnosine (L-Carnosine) is a dipeptide (dipeptide, two amino acids) often present in the brain, heart, skin, muscle, kidney and stomach and other organs and tissues. L-carnosine activates cells in the human body and fights aging through two mechanisms: inhibits glycation and protects our cells from free radical damage. The consequence of glycation is uncontrolled cross-linking of sugar molecules and proteins (sugar molecules stick to each other). on proteins), loss of cellular function and incomplete gene combinations that accelerate aging. L-Carnosine also stabilizes cell membranes and reduces brain lipid peroxidation, thereby preventing nerve and brain degeneration.
L-carnosine has potential antioxidant and anti-glycosylation activities; prevents acetaldehyde-induced non-enzymatic glycosylation and protein conjugation. It is also a substrate for the detection of carnosinase, which maintains the pH balance of the body and prolongs the lifespan of cells.
