L-Carnosine is classified as a dipeptide, which is a combination of two amino acids, in this case alanine and histidine. It naturally occurs in high concentrations in skeletal muscle tissue, and therefore may support muscle vitality. L-Carnosine is also an antioxidant that stabilizes cellular membranes, protecting them from damage by free radicals. Because L-Carnosine is only found in vertebrates, it is especially important for persons who do not consume beef, pork or chicken.
As a dietary supplement, take 1 Vcap 1 to 2 times daily, preferably with meals. Consider taking this product in combination with NOW L-Proline, Vitamin C and L-Lysine.
Cellulose (capsule), stearic acid (vegetable source) and magnesium stearate (vegetable source).

I have been on this for a four week period and have noticed a marked improvement concerning the sharp pain I experience daily in my foot due to my heavy lifting job. I really took this for over all physical health but this has been a blessed side benefit. God bless.
This product Is a force against glycation [ when glucose and proteins cross], they cause a glycation. This is a hardening. It can be a wrinkle or it can be in your organs. To stay healthy , take 500 mg of Carnosine, twice a day. A lower dose will probably not do much for you, as that is what I have read in the medical reports from various natural doctors. "Now Foods" products are one of my favorite products. I also like Doctor's Best. They are quality and priced decently.
Helps brains, muscles & joints

This amino acid has been very beneficial for my sister & me. I think everyone over 50 needs it. The thing I notice most about it, is the ability to focus more easily. I believe my muscles & joints are not as sore, too. Worth a try if you are over 50, or if you have A.D.D.

The best L-Carnosine out there in my opinion. I've been using it for a couple of years and will keep on using it.

Another expensive antioxidant

While the studied benefits are too long to list here, I took this mainly for cognitive improvement and unfortunately did not notice much other than an increase in irritability.
