L-Carnosine - Amino Acid Dietary Supplement*
L- Carnosine is a naturally-occurring dipeptide normally found in brain and muscle. Discovered more than a century ago, carnosine has been shown to suppress the aged phenotype in cultured human cells. Carnosine seems to possess a number of protective functions including anti-oxidant, free-radical scavenger. Importantly, Carnosine can serves as a copper and zinc chelator and can suppress zinc and copper-induced neurotoxicity in neuron cells (1).
L-Carnosine is already a well-established anti-aging nutritional supplement that is used to support people with liver disease, cataracts, Alzheimer's disease, and cancer. Antonini and colleagues (2) showed that oral administration of L-carnosine to adult humans led to a rise in serum total anti-oxidant capacity. Recent studies have shown a tremendous potential of L-carnosine for improving language and behavior in children diagnosed with Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD). When autistic children were fed L-carnosine, their characteristic autistic behaviour was suppressed (3). Thus, the study indicates that L-carnosine supplementation can support healthy brain function.
L- Carnosine is considered an non-toxic and safe substance. As with other antioxidants, carnosine acts synergistically when taken with other antioxidants. (For example, when vitamin E was taken with carnosine, levels of both substances were higher in cardiac muscle than when either was taken alone.)
