Package of 120 capsules / 1 capsule of KarnozinExtra contains:
L-carnosine 125 mg
Vitamin E 20 mg
Coenzyme Q10 20 mg
L-carnitine 20 mg
Northern blueberries extract 20 mg
Grape seed extract 20 mg
Another component of the product is Vitamin E, the most important antioxidant in the vitamin group.
Coenzim Q10 is a very important substance of the modern approach in mitochondrial medicine. As an important component of the mitochondrial respiratory chain, it plays an essential role in ATP process in mitochondria, affecting the direction of the energy level in the cells.
Coenzyme Q10 has powerful antioxidant characteristics – neutralizing free oxygen and other radicals and also regenerating vitamin E. It shows antiperoxidative effect of lipids, thus preventing lipoprotein changes and beginning and development of atherosclerotic diseases.
It is well known that the human body is capable of biosynthesis. However, this fully works only up to 40’s. Body biosynthesis continuously decreases and becomes very low in the later years, and with the lack of variety in nutrition there is a risk for the occurrence of some or several mitochondrial diseases. Another risk is in people taking statins.
They inhibit the enzyme HMG-CoA reductase, and thus prevent the endogenous formation of cholesterol, but also affect the metabolism of mevalonate, a precursor of CoQ10. With the lack of mevalonate, this important metabolite of CoQ10 is unavailable, and after a while consequences become visible. We conclude that the 50-year-old person who takes statins must also include essential dietary supplement containing CoQ10.
L-carnitin is biologically important and the fact in favour of this indicates that it is found in breast milk. Therefore, artificial milk for infants is fortified with carnitine and taurine.
L-carnitine is found in large quantities in metabolically active organs, especially in the muscles, where it plays an important role in metabolic processes, such as the mitochondrial β-oxidation of fatty acids. It has a role in the creation of ATP in the myocardial mitochondria, which strengthens the protective mechanism of the heart.
The complexity of the product is complemented with the extract of northern blueberry and grape seeds, which are known for their rich content of beneficial flavonoids and polyphenols, resveratrol.
