AOR Carnosine-500 Details

  • Provides beta-alanine and L-histidine
  • Prevents cellular damage
  • Rejuvenates cells
  • Supports muscle function

Carnosine is a simple dipeptide (that is, two amino acids joined together – in this case, beta-alanine and histidine). But don’t let that simplicity fool you: simply put, Carnosine is the most exciting anti-aging nutrient ever discovered. Carnosine is made by many cells in your body – and especially in muscle, heart, and brain cells. Longer-lived animals tend to have more Carnosine in their cells than do shorter-lived species, and preliminary research suggests that levels of Carnosine decline with aging (by 63% between the ages of 10 and 70 in humans).

Carnosine plays a central part in muscle contraction and in preventing fatigue, fending off lactic acidosis and allowing isolated muscle cells that have been pushed beyond their workload limits to contract again. In nerves, its concentration is so targeted, and its release so regular, that it was once thought to be a neurotransmitter; while it now looks as if that’s unlikely, Carnosine does play an important role in modulating brain cell function, simultaneously making neurons more sensitive to certain signals and protecting neurons from toxicity from overstimulation. In heart cells, Carnosine appears to be a central player in regulating the heartbeat through its role in regulating calcium ions. But none of that explains its ability to make old cells young.

  • 9.1/10  Helps me SLEEP

    By Allison on Tuesday, November 24, 2015 09:51 PM

    Effectiveness: 9/10

    (+) Easy To Take,First Dose Results,Good Value

    How did you use it?:Before Bed

    "So while Carnosine states that it's anti-aging and boosts energy, my natropath prescribed this to me as I told him I had trouble sleeping and my mind was very active in the evening. Carnosine is so amazing at helping my mind calm down and helping me fall asleep better! I do find it's a bit harder to get up the morning after I've taken it so I only take it as needed but honestly this has been a game changer. I'll just take one most of the time but if I'm feeling extra anxious and unable to settle down before bed I'll take two. It kicks in within half an hour. My natropath laughed when I told him it was working as apparently you won't find anywhere that it helps with sleep but somehow he knew and I'm so grateful for that!"
