L-Carnosine (also known as carnosine) is a molecule consisting of the amino acids alanine and histidine. It is found in significant concentrations in skeletal muscle tissue‚ heart muscle‚ nerve tissue and in the brain.
Kirkman® offers the highest quality‚ chemically pure L-Carnosine available. Our capsules are hypoallergenic‚ specially formulated for individuals with special requirements or sensitivities. They are made from plant cellulose (pine) instead of the traditional animal gelatin shell.
The specific biological role of L-Carnosine is not really known‚ but it is believed to have antioxidant properties and may also be a neurotransmitter. Because L-Carnosine is a dipeptide‚ it may be neuroprotective or may support frontal lobe function in the brain.
Despite the fact that little is known about the action of this nutrient‚ many doctors are utilizing the supplement with excellent reported results.
Kirkman® recommends that zinc be taken with L-Carnosine for additional nutritional support.

Overall Rating for L-Carnosine 200 mg -Hypoallergenic - 90 Capsules
L-Carnosine and Autism
My eleven year old son with autism has been taking this L-Carnosine 200 mg by Kirkman for almost three weeks. After reading about a study that had been done on children with autism in which there were good results, using 800 mg of L-Carnosine daily for 8 weeks we decided to try it. So far there have been no adverse effects and we have actually seen some pleasant changes in him. Of course each case is different but for us it has had a positive effect.
That it is a capsule form that can be opened and put in juice.
√ I would recommend this item to a friend.

hyperactivity after using this
My child tried L-Carnosine for two days and became extremely excited during his night time. He woke up several times and could not sleep!
