Proven Health Benefits of Carnosine

Y-AGE_CARN_White_Envelope_EUResearch continues to shed light on the powerful antioxidant carnosine. Its benefits are thought to be substantial, including providing healthful results in the realm of heart disease and neurodegenerative disease.  Other studies indicate that carnosine may also combat the aging process.

  1. Carnosine is Anti-Aging & Promotes Longevity

In rat studies, Carnosine levels have been shown to decline with age*. A number of experiments carried out in Australia showed that Carnosine reinvigorates cells as they approach senescence (the stage just before they die when the cell is not functioning). Cells were given Carnosine looked and behaved younger than untreated cells*. Importantly, Carnosine reversed the signs of aging in these senescent (nearly dead) cells. This means that Carnosine is a great hack for older people who want to look younger, as well as those who want to continue looking young (R, R1).

  1. Carnosine Helps Mend Mitochondria

Italian researchers found that mice given Carnosine had a complete reversal of age-related mitochondrial dysfunction. The improvement was so dramatic that the treated mice had better mitochondrial function than normal, healthy mice**.

  1. Carnosine Makes Wounds Heal Faster

One study that treated rodents with Carnosine (100mg/kg internally and applied topically) found that Carnosine significantly improved wound healing by increasing the expression of beneficial growth factors and cytokines ***.

  1. Carnosine May Protect the Heart

Studies have shown that Carnosine can improve heart function, possibly by regulating cellular calcium levels – as Carnosine has been shown to do in rats+. Carnosine provides protection against the hardening of arteries ++.

LifeWave’s Y-Age Carnosine patches are non-addictive and have been clinically shown to:

  • Improve overall health
  • Improve the bioelectrical properties of organs
  • Increase stamina by up to 125%
  • Help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles (when used in conjunction with Y-Age Glutathione on a regular basis)
