Stop Age-Related Muscle Decline With Life Extension Super Carnosine

Carnosine is a multifunctional dipeptide which is made up of the amino acids beta-alanine and L-histidine. Carnosine is found both in the food you eat and in your body. Long-lived cells such as nerve cells (neurons) and muscle cells (myocytes) both contain high levels of carnosine. Levels of carnosine in your muscles correlate with the maximum life span of animals. Carnosine contains a number of antioxidant properties and has also been proven to be an anti-glycating agent.

Carnosine acts as a pH buffer, which means it can keep on protecting muscle cell membranes from oxidation under the acidic conditions of muscular exertion. Carnosine enables your heart muscle to contract with more efficiency through the enhancement of calcium response in heart myocytes.

Carnosine is able to suppress the formation of advanced glycation end products (AGEs) and also inhibits the formation of reactive oxygen species (ROS), a culprit in oxidative stress that can lead to age-related conditions. Carnosine levels in your body decline as you age. Muscle levels decline 63% from age 10 to age 70. This is what may the reason for age-related decline in muscle mass and function.

Aging is what causes irreversible damage to your body’s proteins. One main reasons for this damage is a process called glycation. The process of glycation can be seen as unsightly wrinkled skin. Glycation is also an underlying cause of age-related neurological, vascular, and eye problems. Carnosine is a unique dipeptide that can interfere with and slow down the glycation process.

Benfotiamine, a derivative of thiamine, or vitamin B1, helps give additional protection against glycation reactions while guarding your cells. Even individuals with normal glucose levels can encounter damaging sugar reactions during their lifetime. Benfotiamine protects against glucose-induced cell damage via several mechanisms.
