Rated 5 out of 5 by from A MUST FOR ME I read many nutrition / health / wellness articles daily. There is a lot of positive information out there about the significant value of Carnosine to those of us who are interested in doing everything natural that we can for 'life extension.' I've been taking this excellent CARNOSINE product from Swanson for a while now, and I am very pleased. I will always be taking it. Personally, I take one capsule each morning and another at night. Nothing negative to note. Works for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Staves off the afternoon sleepiness As a very busy mom of three, I wake up early and hit the floor running, very often until bedtime, the hardest times of the day for me are right before picking up kids from school and around 7 pm, both times are not convenient for me to be taking a rest, this product really helps me to be able to avoid feeling tired (and grumpy too) and I have found that I have more mental clarity. Very pleased with this product!!:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great supplement I took a carnosine a few days ago and I had a great and unbelievable energy all day, so carnosine is a permanent part of my supplement program. I like taking carnosine with 500 mg reduced glutathione, 500 mg raspberry ketones, 500 mg of Amazon's Sunn Herbal marine phytoplankton, 500 mg of creatine HCl and an eighth level cup of whey protein concentrate powder. I may be adding an 800 mg capsule of Absolute Nutrition's green coffee extract to this as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from proven results I have been taking L-Carnosine for 2 years now and recently joined my wellness program at work. They did my assessment and blood work and my results were that the inside of my body is 6 years younger than what I actually am. I will keep taking this as I do believe it is a positive contributing factor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Staying with this one First of all, this is as pure as you're going to find, with very few "other ingredients" (and none that are unhealthy, as many are). And as a Swanson brand, the price can't be beat. It's a win-win.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from L-Carnosine L-Carnosine is a natural antioxidant and glycation-fighting nutrient that decreases as we age. This supplement is an essential part of my age management regimen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Healthy Aging Carnosine is a healthy supplement for older folks because it protects the body "machinery" that keeps us going.. I'm almost ninety and I take a Swanson's carnosine capsule at breakfast every morning; so does my wife.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Anti Aging! I'm using the Rightage L-Carnosine for a long time. I don't know for sure if it works, but I get a lot of positive remarks about my 'young' looks. If people hear my age, it is always: no way, you look so much younger! Sounds good, so I keep on using it. Thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! This is probably the 6 or so bottle that I've taken. It's for 'slowing down aging'(wrinkles) and it seems to be doing it's job. I will continue using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good results with l-carnosine I had gritty eyes . After using L-Carnosine the eyes feel normal again . A friend says they seem to work for dry eyes too . No guarantees but it may be worth a try .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Read a lot about this product and decided to go ahead and try it. So glad I did, I have noticed an improvement in my skin and also with my nails. Feel better over all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Look and feel younger! I have used other brands of this product, but have not gotten results like this before. I have noticed a younger looking me staring back in the mirror. My family loves it, and we will continue using this product for as long as it is available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product was fabulous. I felt energized after taking these vitamins.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hard to Find L-Carnosine is hard to find, so I'm really glad they carry it at Swanson. I think it is important for me to take as I age because I'd like to do it as gracefully as possible!!
