L-Carnosine is a dipeptide that is found in the brain, heart, skin, muscles, kidneys and stomach. L-Carnosine supports healthy aging and cellular rejuvenation by its effects on two mechanisms: Glycation and Free Radical Damage. Glycation is the uncontrolled crosslinking of sugar molecules to proteins and is implicated in loss of cell function, genome integrity and accelerated aging. L-Carnosine also supports brain function by reducing lipid peroxidation and stabilizing cell membranes during the aging process.

I originally bought this product for the blood sugar balancing effect that it was recommended for. I have not noticed improvement necessarily for that, however, much is being said on the anti-aging benefits and I feel that this is the only new product I have introduced in the past month that I feel could contribute. I am 43 years old and had started to develop the noticeable wrinkles in my forhead and between my eyes as well as some crows feet around my eyes. My skin has improved, just after using one 90 capsule container as well as the clarity of my complexion. For the first time EVER I was told how beautiful my complexion is, and how smooth and clear it looks! I am ordering my second bottle today!
The best carnosine product

I have tried many different L-carnosine products and this one from Jarrow Formulas raises above all others. It seems stronger and more potent, even causing this mild and brief tingling sensation in my hands/feet. I started using carnosine to relieve tinnitus - it had gotten quite loud and even worse, my ears seemed to become very sensitive to noise. This product seems to have helped a lot with this problem - my tinnitus is in control and the hypersensitivity issue is gone. Any other carnosine product I have tried has not worked and therefore this is the one that I keep recommending to people. No complaints whatsoever!

have been using this product for a year and have a sense of much improved well being. I would NOT want to go back to where I used to be.
Only one that works

This helps wounds close much faster and better than normal. I tried other brands but they didn't help at all. If you're looking for the real benefit of carnosine, this is the one to get.
I stopped buying this

I found out that Beta-Alanine is the limiting factor in the body's own production of Carnosine, so I use that now. There's nothing wrong with this product except that it's 3 times more expensive than going with Beta-Alanine. See http://www.iherb.com/Now-Foods-Sports-Beta-Alanine-100-Pure-Powder-17-6-oz-500-g/10940
Good but can be better as well!

L carnosine is known primarily for its anti aging effects. Studies have shown that it protects against protein glycation, increased cell life, rejuvenated old cells, stabilise blood sugar, reverse signs of aging in senescent and moderates bodily functions such as immune system, blood pressure etc. Its effects are probably observant over a long period. Since I am still young, it’s hard for me to notice any noticeable effect except for slight smoother skin or more stable blood sugar (if taking 2 daily). The capsules are made of gelatin (not for vegan), not too big and easy to swallow. The product does contain magnesium stearate. Whether there is any health effects from magnesium stearate like claimed, it is highly debateable. The suggested use is 1-3 times. I would recommend 2 capsules daily (45 days servings) based on personal experience or more if you are older. Pricewise, it is quite expensive but it is competitive compared to other carnosine products. Check out my page for more reviews!
