The Mechanism of Action Behind SR CarnoSyn®
In the health and wellness community, “mechanism of action” describes how a molecule, such as a supplement or other substance, produces a specific pharmacological reaction in the body. Monitoring how a molecule affects the body allows for safe, successful dosing of certain supplements. One of the primary mechanisms of action in SR CarnoSyn® beta-alanine is its ability to enhance intracellular buffering capacity. This results in a greater tolerance for sustained anaerobic activity. The mechanism of action behind SR CarnoSyn® makes it ideal for any individuals looking to improve their overall wellness.
Beta-Alanine, Histidine, and Carnosine: Background for Your Consumers
Beta-alanine is an amino acid that is produced naturally in the body. When SR CarnoSyn® beta-alanine is introduced into the body, it binds with the amino acid histidine in the brain, the muscles, and other organs with a peptide bond. The result is the dipeptide called carnosine.
Beta-alanine is the rate-limiting factor in carnosine synthesis, and the body demands even more with aging. Beta-alanine supplementation has been shown to increase carnosine levels by up to 80 percent. More carnosine means better results, with improved brain health, systemic protection, muscle function, bone health, and heart health at all ages.
How Carnosine Serves to Buffer pH Decline
Lactate and hydrogen ions, the end products of glucose metabolism, are generated in equal amounts with exercise. However, it is the highly reactive hydrogen ions that are responsible for acidification or the fall in pH. The rate at which hydrogen ions are transported from the muscle cells and into circulation is limited.
Carnosine serves to buffer pH decline with its chemical structure and property, the imidazole ring. This buffering action reduces the build-up of acidity that contributes to muscle fatigue and failure while increasing endurance and improving recovery. This buffering action is also crucial in maintaining proper pH and optimal functioning of the body’s enzymes and proteins.
Beta-Alanine’s Effects on Overall Wellness
Among beta-alanine’s effects on overall wellness, its antioxidant properties protect entire systems in the body from lipid peroxidation. During this process, oxidants such as free radicals attack lipids in cell membranes, which can result in membrane rupture and cell death. Whether oxidative damage is caused by aging or strenuous physical activity, increased carnosine levels help cells to fight these effects.
SR CarnoSyn® Offers Multiple Benefits for Your Consumers
SR CarnoSyn® offers the same benefits to your consumers as instant release CarnoSyn®. The difference is in an advanced delivery system that allows for increased dosing and faster results. Its sustained release formula increases carnosine levels in the body to promote everyday wellness and healthy aging. SR CarnoSyn® is patented and scientifically proven to improve brain health, systemic protection, muscle function, bone health, and heart health.
The following are descriptions that can be utilized in your promotional materials. Infographics are also available to outline the benefits for your consumers in a visually appealing manner.
Brain and Mood Support
Carnosine acts as an anti-glycation agent in cells, which supports brain health and cognitive function. It is a powerful antioxidant, with studies showing carnosine helps improve attention, concentration, and task focus in adults. Increasing carnosine levels also promotes a healthy response to everyday stress and has been shown to slow down aging.
Immune Support and Systemic Health
Carnosine provides multi-system support for the essential structure and function of healthy immunity. It chelates heavy metals, supports healthy blood sugar levels, and helps the body’s cells fight oxidative damage. Carnosine is a provider of extracellular histidine and histamine, both needed for several physiological functions.
Muscle Function and Bone Health
Increasing carnosine levels improves muscle working capacity and muscle contraction, supporting the body as it undergoes age-related changes. In addition to the pH buffering function mentioned earlier, carnosine is also a regulator of calcium release and calcium sensitivity, which are both critical for muscle contraction and provide powerful support for bone integrity in older adults.
In addition to protecting against lipid peroxidation in the body, carnosine helps to maintain proton buffering capacity, supports circulation and already-healthy blood pressure levels, and regulates muscle contractions.
