- a stable form of carnosine ;
- formulated to fight glycation ;
- used for delaying the effects of ageing.
This new dietary supplement Carcinine is the result of our continuing drive for innovation. At the cutting edge of supplement research, this product is a new derivative form of Carnosine. Not only does Carcinine have the same, clear anti-ageing effects as Carnosine but it has the advantage of being a more stable form. It is neither degraded by the enzyme carnosinase nor converted into histidine, giving it a longer life in the body and improving its efficacy against glycation.
Also known as L-carnosine, carnosine is a peptide formed within the body during the digestion of protein-rich food. It is present in brain and muscle tissue where it actively participates in muscle and tissue contraction. This molecule has also attracted scientific interest for its potential in fighting cellular ageing and glycation.
Glycation is a reaction between a sugar and a protein and leads to the formation of Advanced Glycation End-products or AGE. The formation of these molecules has a negative effect on certain essential proteins, and causes tissue damage to the skin, arteries and muscles, amongst others. As well as accelerating tissue ageing, glycation is also associated with the development of age-related diseases such as atherosclerosis. Fortunately, scientific studies have identified beneficial molecules such as Carnosine that are able to counter this process.
Indeed this is why carnosine has long featured in the anti-ageing and anti-glycation supplements offered in our catalogue. The results of the very latest research into carnosine, Carcinine represents a new response to cellular ageing. It is obtained by slightly modifying the carnosine molecule in order to offer an unprecedented formulation with excellent stability.

Oxidative stress is what happens when our cells are attacked by free radicals. In excess, these unstable molecules overwhelm our defences, damaging the body. Here we take a look at their sources and consequences, and the ways in which we can help keep them under control.
Ageing is the result of a combination of genetic and environmental factors: DNA shortening, oxidative stress, glycation... Here we take a look at the ageing process, its causes, and the ways in which we can slow it down.
Inflammation is a mechanism used by the body to respond to harmful stimuli. But when that response is excessive, the body suffers. Here, in 10 points, are the essential facts.
