    While we do include a .625cc scoop that holds approximately 100mg of N-Acetylcarnosine. We recommend a highly sensitive scale for more accurate weighing/dosing. We also offer this material in larger quantities of 25 Grams, 50 Grams and 100 Gram, if interested please contact us.

    N-Acetylcarnosine is a naturally-occurring compound chemically related to the dipeptide carnosine. Its molecular structure is similar to carnosine with the exception that it carries an additional acetyl group. This makes N-Acetylcarnosine a more stable molecule which is not easily destroyed by carnosinase, an enzyme that breaks down carnosine to its constituent amino acids, beta-alanine and histidine.

    N-Acetylcarnosine is a free-radical scavenger and is particularly active against lipid peroxidation in the different parts of the lens in the eye. It is the active ingredient of eye drops used in order to prevent or treat cataract.

    This product has not been evaluated by the FDA and it's not intended to "diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease".
