  • Rejuvenation.

L-Carnosine is a dipeptide that consists of the two amino acids, beta- alanine and histidine. It is found in moderately high concentrations in the skeletal muscles, heart muscles, and the brain.

L-Carnosine is produced naturally by the body through the enzyme carnosine synthetase. L-Carnosine assists a healthy aging process and aids the rejuvenation of cells through fighting the mechanism of glycation and damage caused by free radicals.

Glycation is the unregulated crosslinking of sugar molecules to proteins and results in genome integrity, the loss of cell function, and accelerated aging. L-Carnosine also guards the brain’s aging process by reducing fat peroxidation and stabilizing cell membranes. L-Carnosine may help to assist the muscle’s fight against fatigue. Studies indicate that it may play a role as a neurotransmitter (chemical messenger in the nervous system), regulator of enzyme activities, and a heavy metals chelator.

Suggested Use: Take 1 to 3 capsules per day with juice or water on an empty stomach, or as directed by your qualified health care consultant. Pregnant or lactating women should consult a physician before taking L-Carnosine.

Supplemental Facts

L-Carnosine (beta-alanyl-L-histidine) 500 mg *
* Daily Value Not Established


Notes: L-Carnosine is a dipeptide amino acid that is found in the brain, heart, skin, muscles, kidneys and stomach. L-Carnosine is naturally produced in the body. 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 protects against accelerated brian aging by reducing lipid peroxidation and stabilizing cell membranes.*

Other Ingredients: Rice flour, magnesium stearate (vegetable source) and silicon dioxide. Capsule consists of gelatin. No wheat, no gluten, no soy, no dairy, no egg, no fish/shellfish, no nuts/tree nuts.
