Jarrow Formulas L-Carnosine 500mg, 90 Capsules


L-Carnosine is a dipeptide that is found in the brain; heart; skin; muscles; kidneys and stomach. L-Carnosine supports healthy aging and cellular rejuvenation by its effects on two mechanisms: Glycation and Free Radical Damage.* Glycation is the uncontrolled crosslinking of sugar molecules to proteins and is implicated in loss of cell function; genome integrity and accelerated aging. L-Carnosine also supports brain function by reducing lipid peroxidation and stabilizing cell membranes during the aging process.* Keep out of the reach of children.

    Love this product therefore five stars. My skin looks really nice without all those expensive face lotions and creams. L-Carnosine naturally occurs in our bodies but decreases as we age. L-Carnosine acts as a rejuvenator to the body’s cells and works within the cell structure as an antiaging agent.

    Supplement Facts

    It’s nice that Amazon includes the cost per capsule to help us compare products, however if we don’t know how many capsules it takes to equal the dosage on the bottle (servings per container), then we can’t truly know our cost.

    I wish Amazon would urge companies to include the product’s Supplement Facts. The Supplement Facts let us know how many capsules, tablets, etc., equal the stated dosage and how many servings there are in each bottle.

    For example, I want to take 500 mg a day. If it takes 3 capsules taken daily to equal 500 mg, then the bottle would last only one month and the cost per day would be 99 cents. If, as it is in this case, 1 capsule equals 500 mg, then the bottle contains 90 days of the supplement. At the current posted price of $29.53 then the cost per capsule is 33 cents each.

    I buy almost all my supplements from Amazon using their subscription service and it gets tiresome having to find the company site for each product, read the Supplement Facts label, and then determine how many and how often I need to have each product delivered.

    I’ve been taking this for almost a week now and it is still kinda soon to review the total benefits of this vitamin. But I will give it 5 stars, I have lost 4 pounds and my skin does look good. This was the best price on the internet for this product and I received it within a few days. I will reorder and will update my review at a later date.

    I’ve been taking this for about a month. I can report no side effects, however as for the effect on wrinkles it’s too soon to tell per Dr. Oz which says it takes about 3 months to see a difference. I’ve put myself on auto ship because I really want to see this through. I will update later.
