|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.)
