Zinc Carnosine combines the mineral zinc with the amino acids L-carnosine to enhance cellular repair and absorption in the gut lining. It offers a natural approach to supporting the gastrointestinal (GI) lining.
The mucosal lining of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract protects against invasive microbes, environmental toxins, allergens and the erosive impact of stomach acid and bile. The combination of zinc and L-carnosine promotes healthy cells in the mucosal lining: these nutrients work together to boost the natural repair mechanisms in the GI tract.
Zinc is an important mineral that supports numerous enzymatic and structural roles in our body. It is particularly important for healthy cellular metabolism, immune health and healthy cell membranes – including cells in the intestinal tract.
Carnosine is an amino acid, sourced mainly from our diet via meat and animal sources. It is a natural component of muscles and brain tissue. Those on a plant-based diet can have lower levels of carnosine and implementing carnosine via a supplement source can be very supportive.
