Antioxidant activity

The term antioxidant refers to the ability of numerous vitamins, minerals and other phytochemical products to protect against the harmful effects of highly reactive molecules known as free radicals. Free radicals react with numerous structures of the body and can damage them…

Anti-glycosylation activity

L-carnosine inhibits the formation of substances known as AGEs, advanced glycosylation end products. Non-enzymatic glycosylation (referred to as “Maillard reaction” in food chemistry) is the reaction of amino groups with aldehydes, sugars or keto groups, leading to…

Against aging and diseases typical of old age

It is well known that spontaneous modification of aldose-induced proteins is one of the main causes of age-related degeneration of proteins and cross-links, and it plays an important role in some old-age diseases, such as…

Neuroprotective action

The specific concentration of the endogenous peptide L-carnosine in the brain as well as muscle has had led to the formulation of various hypotheses as to its biological function in this field.
It has been found that carnosine is often associated with neurons which, though totally…

For the skin

Thanks to its natural antioxidant properties, L-carnosine can effectively counteract the body’s natural ageing process. The skin, which is known to be one of the first organs in which the action of radical degeneration is visible, is positively influenced by the action of L-carnosine…

Immunostimulant action

The immunoregulatory effect attributed to carnosine still requires an in-depth analysis of its precise mechanism of action. According to research conducted so far, it appears to involve the activation of T and B cells and also stereo stimulation specific to peritoneal macrophages…

Action on the muscles

Thanks to its many properties, L-carnosine can be considered a new-generation ergogenic aid. Similar to what has been observed in brain tissue, the natural concentration of L-carnosine in muscles has numerous functional explanations, many of which are truly surprising…
