L-carnosine is a naturally occurring combination of two amino acids, alanine and histadine. A series of astonishing experiments done in Australia proved that carnosine rejuvenates cells as they approach the end of their life cycle. Cells cultured with carnosine lived longer and retained their youthful appearance and growth patterns. In fact, the studies showed that carnosine as an anti-aging nutritional supplement can actually REVERSE the signs of aging in older cells. A Russian study on mice has shown that mice given carnosine are twice as likely to reach their maximum lifespan as untreated mice. The carnosine also significantly reduced the outward "signs of old age." In effect, carnosine made the mice look younger.
Quite simply, carnosine is one of the most powerful antioxidants known, especially for anti aging nutrition. It's a great heavy-metal scavenger. It's a powerful auto-regulator. And this anti-aging supplement stands alone when it comes to helping with protein glycation or cross-linking.
In addition, carnosine has been proven to help reduce cell damage caused by beta amyloid, one of the prime protein risk factors for Alzheimer's. The presence of beta amyloid leads to damage to the nerves and arteries of the brain. Carnosine blocks and inactivates beta amyloid. In effect, this health supplement protects neural tissues against dementia.
Carnosine levels in our body directly correlate with both the length and quality of our lives. And since carnosine levels decline with age, supplementation with carnosine represents one of the most powerful things you can do to hold back the ravages of old age.
Although your body can synthesize L-carnitine in the liver, it depends on outside sources (meat being a primary source) to fulfill its requirements. This can present a problem for vegetarians who don’t use a Carnitine health supplement since L-carnitine performs several key functions in the human body. For one, Carnitine can improve the functioning of the immune system by enhancing the ability of macrophages to function as phagocytes. And it can improve the functioning of muscle tissue. In fact, Carnitine has been shown to increase running speed when given prior to exercise. Carnitine also plays a major factor in cellular energy production by shuttling fatty acids from the main cell body into the mitochondria (the cell's energy factories) so that the fats can be oxidized for energy. Without carnitine, fatty acids cannot easily enter the mitochondria.
There is, however, a specialized form of L-carnitine known as acetyl-L-carnitine (ALC) that is often deficient even in meat eaters and that performs virtually all of the same functions – but better. For example, in terms of cellular energy production, in addition to shuttling fatty acids into cell mitochondria, ALC provides acetyl groups from which Acetyl-Coenzyme A (a key metabolic intermediate) can be regenerated, thereby facilitating the transport of metabolic energy and boosting mitochondrial activity. But beyond that, the addition of the acetyl group makes ALC water soluble, which enables it not only to diffuse easily across the inner wall of the mitochondria but also to cross all cell membranes more easily. In other words, ALC reaches parts of the body where L-carnitine cannot go. In particular, ALC readily crosses the blood/brain barrier, where it provides a number of specialized neurological functions. For example, it can:
- Facilitate both the release and synthesis of acetylcholine, a key brain biochemical.
- Increase the brain's levels of choline acetylase.
- Enhance the release of dopamine and improve the binding of dopamine to dopamine receptors.
- Protect the neurons of the optic nerve and the occipital cortex of the brain.
In addition, studies have shown that acetyl-L-carnitine can slow down the deterioration in mental function associated with Alzheimer's along with slow its progression. Part of this is a result of its ability to shield neurons from the toxicity of beta amyloid protein. As a result:
- ALC improves alertness in Alzheimer's patients.
- Improves attention span.
- And it increases short term memory.
Through its action on dopamine (a chemical messenger used between nerve cells) and dopamine receptors, ALC seems to play a major role in minimizing the symptoms of Parkinson's.
- ALC enhances the release of dopamine from dopaminergic neurons and improves the binding of dopamine to dopamine receptors.
- ALC retards the decline in the number of dopamine receptors that occurs as part of the normal aging process and (more rapidly) with the onset of Parkinson's. In fact, many researchers believe that Parkinson's may be caused by a deficiency of dopamine.
- And ALC inhibits tremors.
And acetyl-L-carnitine may even play a role in helping with MS.
- ALC inhibits (and possibly reverses) the degeneration of myelin sheaths.
But most of all, acetyl-L-carnitine just helps slow down the aging process of the brain, making it a key ingredient in any anti-aging supplement:
- ALC retards the inevitable decline in the number of glucocorticoid receptors that occurs with aging.
- It retards the age-related deterioration of the hippocampus.
- It retards the inevitable decline in the number of nerve growth factor receptors that occurs as we age.
- It stimulates and maintains the growth of new neurons within the brain (both independently of Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) and as a result of preserving NGF).
- ALC protects the NMDA receptors in the brain from age-related decline.
- ALC inhibits the excessive release of adrenalin in response to stress and inhibits the depletion of luteinizing hormone releasing hormones and testosterone that occurs as a result of excessive stress.
- And ALC enhances the function of cytochrome oxidase, an essential enzyme of the Electron Transport System.
The mind boosting effect of acetyl-L-carnitine is often noticed within a few hours of taking this anti-aging nutrition -- or even within an hour. Most people report feeling mentally sharper, having more focus, and being more alert. Some find a mild mood enhancement. More specifically:
- ALC improves learning ability along with both short term and long term memory.
- It improves mood by 53%.
- It both improves the quality of and reduces the need for sleep.
- It improves verbal fluency.
- And ALC improves hand eye coordination by some 300-400%.
DMAE (Dimethylaminoethanol) bitartrate [providing 37% DMAE (29.6 mg)]
By any definition, DMAE is the perfect companion to carnosine in an anti-aging supplement. First, it reinforces carnosine's own anti-aging properties. Then, it provides a whole series of complementary benefits of its own. DMAE is short for (dimethylaminoethanol), a naturally-occurring nutrient that enhances acetylcholine (ACh) synthesis. Adequate levels of ACh are important for proper memory function. Normally found in small amounts in our brains, DMAE has been shown to remarkably enhance brain function when used as a dietary supplement in clinical studies.
One of the prime actions of DMAE is that it flushes accumulated lipofuscin from your body – from the neurons in your brain, from your skin, and from all other organs. It also complements carnosine in that DMAE on its own has been shown to inhibit and reverse the Cross-Linking of proteins and extend lifespan.
Numerous scientific studies now show that DMAE can help:
- Increase Acetylcholine levels and RNA levels in the brain
- Stimulate mental activity
- Increase attention span
- Increase alertness
- Increase intelligence (especially in children)
- Increase energy levels
- Provide a mild, safe tonic effect
- Stimulate the central nervous system
- Address anxiety
- Elevate mood in general
- Alleviate behavioral problems and hyperactivity associated with Attention Deficit Disorder
- Increase motivation and reduce apathy in persons suffering from depression
- Induce sounder sleep
- Over time reduce the amount of sleep required by about 1 hour per night
- Intensify dreams tremendously. (Even more so when you take it along with a large dose of phosphatidyl choline -- a key component of lecithin)
- Cause dreams to become more lucid
- Increase willpower
- Decrease the incidence and severity of hangovers in people who consume excessive amounts of alcohol
Ionic Trace Minerals
Ionic minerals are added to many formulas to increase the bio-electric activity level of the ingredients in the formula and sustain their activity for a significantly longer period of time.
Ionic merely means that the minerals are broken down to their absolutely smallest form.
There is a great deal of confusion and misinformation in the press. Here is an article written by Jon Barron that will clear up any confusion or concern you may have in this regard. Acetyl-l-carnitine Supplements and Heart Disease
