Zinc Carnosine – The Mucosal Healer
  • Zinc Carnosine is a Unique mucoprotective agent that helps maintain the integrity of the epithelial lining through its cytoprotective and mucosal healing abilities.
  • It’s a Chelate of mineral Zinc and the versatile amino acid L-carnosine. Since 1994, doctors in Japan have advocated zinc Carnosine for recovery in conditions where gastric mucosal lining is compromised and to ease symptoms of dyspepsia.
  • Several published studies, support the use of Zinc Carnosine in promoting a healthy gastric environment. It also has been clinically demonstrated to reduce several symptoms associated with ulcer development.
Zinc Carnosine, is a unique combination in which a zinc ion and carnosine bind in an equal ratio to create a chelate structure. L-Histidine and Beta-Alanine, two essential amino acids, combine to form the dipeptide L-Carnosine. L-Carnosine is abundant in muscles and nerves naturally, and has been shown to have antioxidant characteristics. Because of its polymeric nature & chelated structure it has a slow dissociation rate.
