What Is Carnosine?

Share This Article: Facebook Share Twitter Share
Few people know what carnosine is, where it's found, why you would need to supplement it and what it does in the body. This article analyzes several aspects of carnosine that normally elude most people.

Red meat carnosine is an amino acid compound that is a natural antioxidant and anti-glycation substance.  It's found in human tissues and has many benefits in the body. Primarily coming from red meat, a normal red meat meal will provide 250 mg of carnosine.

The main problem with carnosine is that it's quickly broken down and degraded by the carnosinase enzyme. Studies have shown that supplementing with 1,000 mg a day of carnosine can overwhelm the carnosinase enzyme and allow the body to reap the benefits of this powerful amino acid.

Benefits of Carnosine include:

  • Carnosine may lower blood glucose, enhance insulin sensitivity, and could help fight type 2 diabetes from emerging.
  • Carnosine may help protect from the harm of LDL (good cholesterol) that could otherwise cause arterial plaque formation and blood vessel damage.
  • Carnosine has been shown to extend the lifespan of male fruit flies by 20 percent, it has also been shown to expand the lifetime of human cells.
  • Carnosine can help inhibit the sympathetic nervous system activity that causes hypertension.
  • It's been shown to protect the heart muscle against toxins, specifically chemotherapy agents.
  • Additionally, it may help block the DNA damage that can lead to cancer formation.
