Dr. Oz recommends L-carnosine for healthy aging

Dr. Oz recommends L-carnosine for healthy aging
New studies show that L-carnosine can reduce fine lines and wrinkles and improve brain function. Here's why Dr. Oz loves the ingredient.

Healthy aging is a popular topic on The Dr. Oz Show. During a recent episode, the celebrity physician and natural products lover recommended L-carnosine supplements, which new studies show can reduce fine lines and wrinkles and improve brain function.

According to Oz, carnosine is a naturally occurring molecule found in the brain and muscle cells that “keeps your skin supple and your mind and eyes sharp.” As we age, however, our natural carnosine levels drop more than 60 percent, “causing a loss in vitality,” Oz said. Fortunately, researchers are now finding that L-carnosine (the supplemental form of the molecule) can have the “same rejuvenating effects” as naturally occurring carnosine, Oz added.
