Carnosine-500 is a combination of two amino acids, both found in high concentrations in the brain and muscle tissue. It’s mainly known for its antioxidant properties that help to reverse cellular aging as well as for its ability to act as a nutrient that supports healthy aging. Carnosine inhibits protein glycation, therefore addressing two of the most important drivers behind the aging process that support healthy aging. Having a healthy lifestyle is important for everyone, especially for aging adults. As per a 2015 AARP study, brain health is the second most important element in maintaining health as we age. With the brain at the center of our body functions, it is no surprise that keeping it sharp and properly functioning is crucial for helping our overall health.

Studies have also found that carnosine enhances exercise performance and tissue repair due to its effects on cellular rejuvenation and protein maintenance. It also has been found to be useful in the prevention of cognitive decline. Carnosine protects cells from oxidation and helps maintain healthy cellular function by getting rid of damaged proteins that cause cellular dysfunction. Carnosine protects the body by reducing cellular damage caused by harmful sugar products (AGEs) and free radicals.

AOR Advantage

AOR’s Carnosine-500 formula contains an evidence-based dose of this powerful antioxidant, and it helps protect the body by promoting youthful cell function, helping reduce cellular damage, and promoting heart and brain health.


Carnosine is a dipeptide found in high concentrations in the brain and a source of amino acids which promotes the maintenance of muscle protein synthesis.*
