Carnosine oral supplementation is a relatively "new" area. Normal anti-aging dosages are 100mg-200mg of L-carnosine per day, (maximum 300mg day) with occasional breaks. Such dosages have failed to produce any report of serious side effects or contraindications to date. (It is believed that n-acetylcarnosine is not suitable for oral use as it is not absorbed through the stomach, whereas L-carnosine is).
We don't recommend larger oral dosages than 300mg per day because it may be that some of the advantages of oral carnosine supplementation comes from its breakdown. Furthermore, we know of cases of disturbing muscle twitching with 1g plus dosages.
No side-effects have been reported in association with carnosine, and it can be taken long-term to offer continuous anti-ageing protection.
