Lactic acid buffer
Control of glycation reactions
CARNO TAB is a Carnosine food supplement. It does not contain ingredients of animal origin and is therefore suitable for vegans.
Carnosine is a peptide naturally formed by the body during the digestion of protein-rich foods. Present in good quantities in muscle and brain tissues, it takes part in this case in the contraction of various muscles and tissues.
Two of the most interesting properties of carnosine are the buffering effect on the lactic acid produced in the muscles during physical activity and the control of glycation.
An excess of lactic acid can inhibit sports performance, while glycation is a reaction that occurs naturally in the body and consists of a reaction between a sugar and a protein, which generates the degradation of some proteins essential for the body. This reaction is also involved in the aging of certain tissues, such as skin, arteries, muscles, etc.
These characteristics make carnosine a very important nutrient for both sport and well-being.
