As far back as 1936, carnosine was found to be of help in the treatment and prevention of gastric ulcers. In a more recent study, oral carnosine significantly inhibited erosions in both the stomach and duodenum (Truitsina, et. al.1997). Those with gastric and duodenal ulcers thus might benefit from supplementing with this amazing dipeptide.

Peptic ulcer disease and nonulcer dyspepsia (NUD) wreak havoc on millions of individuals worldwide. They are a source of morbidity and expense from over-the- counter (OTC) and prescription drugs, diagnosis and treatment. One of the prime causative factors of ulcers, both in the stomach and upper small intestine, is the spiral-shaped bacterium Helicobacter pylori. More than 75 per cent of people with gastric ulcers are infected with H. pylori. Infected humans (estimated to be at least half of the global population) are the likely vector for infecting others. Perhaps the second most significant causative factor in ulcers is the use of non- steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), including aspirin and similar OTC substances. These drugs inhibit the beneficial enzyme cyclooxygenase, which maintains the integrity of the upper GI tract and promotes blood flow to the stomach. Despite the advent of a class of NSAIDs that display greater inhibition in affecting one of the forms of cyclooxygenase (COX-2 inhibitors), all NSAIDs are attended by the risk of ulcerative complications.

Other actions, include:

  • immune booster and inflammation reducer
  • wound healing properties
  • protection against radiation damage (both preventing damage and reversing the post- radiation syndrome)
  • prevention of cancer
