L-Carnosine is an amino acid supplement with tremendous muscle buffering and antioxidant actions.
Contains L-Carnosine 50 mg/ml
L-Carnosine is an anti-oxidant (reduces tissue damage) and a primary muscle buffer.
Carnosine is related metabolically to histamine and has immunopotentiating properties which may possibly be of value in immune deficiency states.
Carnosine is a physiological antioxidant able to scavenge free radicals and efficiently protect the lipid phase of cell membranes. It is a mild anti-inflammatory compound and is also a prominent component in wound healing.
Carnosine is a major muscle buffer. In muscle tissue, phosphate and carnosine together provide approximately 90% of the buffering capacity. Intense exercise involves an anaerobic component and thus results in significant reductions in ATP, which increases muscle lactic acid and also an increase in tissue acidity. Although the acidity can normally be buffered by the body, under high stress conditions, the lactate build-up is too fast for the body to deal with. With increasing acidity comes premature muscle fatigue with an associated decrease in performance.
