Seeking Health Zinc Carnosine is a dietary supplement with a unique combination of zinc and L-carnosine which helps effectively combat digestive problems. The formula improves the regeneration of gastrointestinal mucosa, is effective against H. pylori and helps treat ulcers.
The mucosa of the digestive tract has a vital role in the protection against harmful microorganisms, environmental toxins and allergens as well as activity of bile and gastric acids. Its impaired structure or integrity may have serious consequences for health. It has been demonstrated that a synergistic combination of zinc and L-carnosine has a beneficial effect on normal functioning of the digestive system, thereby protecting the stomach and intestines and reducing digestive problems.
Zinc L-carnosine is a complex of L-carnosine with zinc which has been used in Japan since 1994, mainly as support for gastritis, gastric ulcers and symptoms of indigestion. The combination of zinc with L-carnosine brings more benefits than supplements with zinc or L-carnosine alone. It seems that it is even 3 times more effective than each of these substances separately.
The complex of carnosine with zinc stands out due to unique durability in the gastric juice and has the ability to adhere selectively to ulcerous lesions. According to scientists, it stays in the gastric juice for some time and is not broken down immediately. This contributes to its efficacy.
It has been shown that zinc carnosine may also protect the gastric mucosa against ulceration. This complex is broken down slowly in the lesion into carnosine and zinc. In other words, L-carnosine is responsible for normal transport of the zinc carnosine complex to ulcers in which it adheres to the mucosa and thus provides protection against harmful factors. More interestingly, some studies indicate that this complex may be helpful also in the case of duodenal ulcers and gastritis.
It has been demonstrated that it improves the process of wound healing, mainly owing to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and mechanism associated with the stimulation of IGF-1 production.
In addition, it exerts a bacteriostatic effect on H. pylori by inhibiting bacterial activity of urease (an enzyme facilitating the survival of bacteria in an acidic environment of the stomach).
The H. pylori infection induces damage to the gastric mucosa by, among others, stimulating the production of IL-8 which activates neutrophils. It has been shown that zinc L-carnosine may suppress the expression of proinflammatory cytokines and reduce the inflammatory response of gastric cells. Consequently, this complex may be helpful in other digestive problems, e.g. by relieving symptoms of acid reflux.
It has been demonstrated that the combination of carnosine and zinc may also protect against negative side effects linked with the administration of the drug called indometacin. One of these is death of RMG-1 cells found in the intestinal mucosa that leads to leaky gut syndrome.
To sum up, Seeking Health Zinc Carnosine is a dietary supplement which may prove beneficial to individuals with peptic ulcer disease. The formula strengthens the gastric mucosa, has a beneficial effect on the integrity of the small intestine mucosa and inhibits H. pylori activity. It may also bring relief for persons who do not have gastric ulcers but suffer from heartburn or other symptoms associated with gastroesophageal reflux disease.
Two capsules daily recommended by the manufacturer is an optimum dose for prevention of digestive disorders.
In order to support the gastrointestinal mucosa more comprehensively, take the formula together with e.g. probiotics or L-glutamine.
