Now Foods L-Carnosine is classified as a dipeptide, which is a combination of two amino acids, in this case alanine and histidine. Now Foods L-Carnosine naturally occurs in high concentrations in skeletal muscle tissue, and therefore may support muscle vitality. Now Foods L-Carnosine is also an antioxidant that stabilizes cellular membranes, protecting them from damage by free radicals. Because Now Foods L-Carnosine is only found in vertebrates, it is especially important for persons who do not consume beef, pork or chicken.

As a natural health consumer, I have been led to associate anything synthetic with chemical, and chemicals with unnatural drugs that cause side effects, since they are foreign to the body. Since Carnosine and Zinc Carnosine are partially synthesized, are these safe?
There is a distinction between the natural and synthetic forms. We believe that 'natural is better' and will always prefer the natural form. However, the natural form can be extracted or synthesized, with either method producing identical molecules of the natural substance. The synthesized form is called "nature-identical" if it has the exact same molecular and chemical structure of the substance found in nature. Some companies use the term "bio-identical" as equivalent to "nature-identical".Often the synthesis of nutrients in laboratories is obtained by growing benign bacterial cultures that produce nature-identical nutrients by natural fermentation. Other nutrients are very simple molecules that can be obtained utilizing basic chemical reactions, such as reacting specific starches with acids. Many, if not most, nutrients are synthesized or partially synthesized just like Zinc Carnosine, and are considered just as safe: Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C), Mineral Citrates, Amino acids, B-vitamins, etc. The safety and efficacy of nature-identical nutrients have been proven over many years. These are the exact same forms as would be produced by isolating specific nutrients from food or other natural sources. Synthesized nature-identical nutrients often are of higher purity and are more cost-effective than is possible when obtaining isolated nutrients from natural material sources.

NOW's Mission
The NOW mission is - To provide value in products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives. NOW Foods is an award-winning and highly respected manufacturer of vitamins, minerals, dietary supplements and natural foods.

In 1948, with the natural food and supplement industry in its infancy, entrepreneur Paul Richard paid $900 for the purchase of Fearn Soya Foods—a Chicago based manufacturer of grain and legume-based products.

      eyes are definitely better, and my wrinkles seem to be diminished after 1 month of taking 2 to 4 pills per day. I rotate, 4 pills one day and 2 pills for 2 days.

      I RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT!

      Prior to using this product, I had frequent nocturnal muscle spasms in my legs, usually 30-40 per year. Some were quite painful. I started taking L-Carnosine and after a month or so, the spasms vanished almost completely. When they do occur (perhaps once every few months, if that), they are very mild.

      It's hard to be sure, but I think this stuff actually makes me feel less tired. I haven't done any actual studies, but I've noticed a small increase in energy a short while after taking a capsule.

      I RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT!
