Product Overview

  • Cell Membrane Protection
  • GMP Quality Assured
  • A Dietary Supplement
  • Vegetarian Formula

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.

Helps brains, muscles & joints

Posted by 4721591598380205516 on Sep 10, 2016

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

Posted by 5613717174455836611 on Aug 18, 2016

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

Posted by Reviewer1733570 on Jun 07, 2013

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.
