Carnosine

font size

How does Carnosine work?

Carnosine is important for many normal body functions including the proper function and development of the muscles, heart, liver, kidneys, brain, and many other organs. There is some interest in using carnosine to prevent aging because it seems to interfere with certain chemicals that might play a role in the aging process.

Are there safety concerns?

There is not enough information available to know if carnosine is safe to take for medical conditions.

Special Precautions & Warnings:

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: There is not enough reliable information about the safety of taking carnosine if you are pregnant or breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.

Low blood pressure: Carnosine might lower blood pressure. In theory, taking carnosine might make blood pressure become too low in people with low blood pressure.
