Our products have been scientifically proven and are already game changing.
The product portfolio of Harness Biotechnology includes a patented one-of-a-kind 100% natural performance enhancing chemical compound for topical application and distribution of Carnosine. Carnosine is a dipeptide comprised of the amino acids Histidine and Beta-Alanine.
Harness is the official global rights holder and licensor of the Carnosine complex for the equine industry. Carnosine has been widely studied for its effects on improved wound healing, antioxidant activity and its anti-aging properties since the early 1900’s. Topical application that directly (and near immediately) increases levels of Carnosine in the muscle has been deemed impossible until now.
An explanation to this is that high-intensity performance causes oxidative stress in the muscles and this result in depleted Carnosine stores. The free radicals produced through high intensity muscular activity cause lipid peroxidation as well as carboxylation of proteins and phospholipids.
This causes proteins to break up in a process known as proteolysis. Since protein carboxylation precedes the loss of membrane integrity, it may be associated with the toxic process leading to cell aging and fatality. Carnosine combats these reactions if there is enough of it in the muscles.
Carnosine holds great promise as a 100% natural and valuable performance enhancing compound, especially those who train with high intensity.
Race horses, performance horses, greyhounds, and camels will benefit from increased Carnosine concentrations and the explosive power and recovery and Nitric Oxide potentiating properties that it produces. The scientific achievement to be able to apply a topical gel with immediate absorption into the muscle will change the face of horse racing the equine industry for ever.
