Carnosine Helps Prevent Kidney Damage from Diabetes
Thursday, June 11, 2009
Board Certified Clinical Nutritionist Byron J. Richards,
Carnosine is not only a potent antioxidant, but it is also known to reduce adverse glycation formation from high blood sugar. In a new study it was found that carnosine1 prevented kidney cells from multiplying in an unfavorable way when in response to high blood sugar, even preventing some of the adverse effects high blood sugar causes the kidneys.
Carnosine has a relaxing effect on your brain, and is typically used to boost mood and offset stress – along with its ability to offset damage from high blood sugar. I recently reported that tocotrienols can also help reduce kidney damage from high blood sugar.
Diabetics obviously need to work to get their blood sugar metabolism in better shape. At least there are some nutrients that can help protect their kidneys while that is being done.
