Carnosine is a natural substance that occurs within our bodies normally within the liver from two amino acids: β-alanine and L-histidine. β-Alanine is a non-essential amino acid and our body is able to produce it independently – endogenously. On the other hand, L-histidine is one of the eleven essential amino acids that are necessary for humans and must be obtained exogenously, through food or supplements. Absorption from food ranges from 30% to 70%, while absorption of pure carnosine is over 70%.
Karnozin Extra is a unique, new, improved formulation of carnosine. In addition to carnosine, it also contains coenzyme Q10, liposoluble vitamin E, L-carnitine, grape seed extract, and blueberry extract.
The name carnosine itself comes from the word “carne” which means meat, and we know that meat is the main source of proteins that have multiple roles and functions in our body. Proteins build IgA, IgG, IgM, IgD, and IgE antibodies that protect us from various infections and colds. Without protein, muscle construction would not be possible, and not a single movement of ours would not be possible. Also, they build enzymes for numerous metabolic reactions such as food digestion, enzyme secretion, and body temperature regulation. They create and build hormones that control and command our organs to function properly. Transport proteins and protein deposits are released in cases when something is missing in our body. Without them, carrying out all these processes would not be possible.
Karnozin Extra is a neuroprotective, biologically active dipeptide intended for everyone. However, its concentration decreases with age.
It stimulates and improves mitochondrial functions and reduces oxidative stress. Unlike regular carnosine, it shows greater bioavailability. It is easily absorbed from the digestive system, passes the blood-brain barrier, does not create addiction, and does not accumulate in the body.
Energy is necessary for us to live, run, digest, think, and even sleep. Mitochondria are like little batteries that generate chemical energy in our cells. Almost all cells in our body contain these essential organelles.
Mitochondria convert the food we eat, breaking it down into smaller particles, into adenosine triphosphate or ATP. ATP molecules deliver just the right amount of energy for our needs.
In that case, we feel a lack of energy and all the processes in our organism fail. Recent research shows that it is precisely the improper work of mitochondria that is the root cause of almost all diseases related to proper development. And therein lies the core of mitochondrial therapy. With Carnomed supplementation, it is possible to improve mitochondrial function, their biological activity and restore energy levels.
Free radicals or reactive oxygen and nitrogen compounds occur naturally as products of normal cellular oxidative processes. Based on the accumulation of free radicals in the body, various acute and chronic disorders, inflammatory processes, neurodegenerative disorders, cardiovascular disorders, and malignant diseases occur.
Everything in our organism needs to be in balance in order to function normally. If for any reason this balance is disturbed, it will manifest itself as the onset of disease. One of those reasons is oxidative stress. Oxidative stress normally takes place in our bodies, by creating free radicals that have a negative effect on our bodies.
