After consumption alcohol is rapidly absorbed from the stomach and gut. Most of it is then oxidised, mainly by the liver. The enzyme Alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) converts the alcohol into the very undesirable toxic acid; acetaldehyde. This causes the unpleasant effects of drinking that we are all so familiar with.
In response to the stress the acetaldehyde causes, your body mobilises its defences and your natural reserves of this peptide are very soon exhausted. With your natural defences gone ‘that morning after’ doom and gloom is inevitable.
By taking The Edge™ before and whilst drinking you ensure that your natural reserves will not be exhausted – with the happy result of – waking up feeling great.
L-Carnosine is a natural body product consisting of the amino acids beta-alanine and L-histidine chemically bound to each other. Nerve cells (neurons) and muscle cells (myocytes) contain high levels of Carnosine. Carnosine is NOT a drug, vitamin or mineral and it does not react with any drugs. You are born with high levels of Carnosine in your body but unfortunately it decreases with age. The good news is that you can now replace Carnosine naturally with a daily supplementation of Ethos Endymion which is the very purest form of L-Carnosine available anywhere.
L-Carnosine is the most effective anti-carbonylation agent yet discovered. (Carbonylation is a pathological step in the age-related degradation of the body’s proteins.) Carnosine helps to prevent skin collagen cross-linking which leads to loss of elasticity and wrinkles.
The Edge is the purest form of L-Carnosine available anywhere. It is made up of a combination of the two amino acids Beta-Alanine and L-Histidine and is known scientifically as N-beta-alanyl-histidine.
Long-lived cells such as nerve cells, called neurons, and muscle cells, called myocytes, naturally contain high levels of L-Carnosine and these muscle levels of L-Carnosine correlate exactly with maximum life spans.
L-Carnosine is a SuperAntiOxidant that quenches even the most destructive free radicals: the hydroxyl and peroxyl radicals, superoxide, and singlet oxygen. Carnosine helps to chelate ionic metals (flush toxins from the body).
It also acts as a regulator of zinc and copper concentrations in nerve cells, helping to prevent overstimulation by these neuroactive minerals. What is known about the biological role of Carnosine in the body substantiates all of the above and other studies have indicated further benefits.
