Ok. I’m finished with L-carnosine. The experiment was a complete failure.
It just made me feel much worse by the end of the month. 2000mg was almost immediately a bad trip. 1000mg took a month to become intolerable. I.e. I just couldn’t tolerate it.
I tried 500mg for 2 days and came to the conclusion it’s addictive as I really wanted to take 1000mg even though it made me feel bad.
I also found this which was the final straw.
One important note on l-carnosine. When you supplement with l-carnosine it binds to aldehydes. Preventing them from making proteins. The byproduct is lipofuscin. This age pigment is not dangerous. But shows up as brown spots on your brain, skin and other organs.
As lipofuscin builds up over time, and this process is accelerated when using l-carnosine, it can interfere with proper organ and cellular functions.
So in summary.
