The amino acids beta-alanine and histidine are the building blocks of carnosine, a powerful antioxidant, which is naturally produced in the body. Carnosine is highly concentrated in muscle and brain tissue and is vitally essential for both everyday wellness and healthy aging.*

Why supplement with SR CarnoSyn®?

As we age, the carnosine levels in our bodies decrease and diet alone won’t provide enough beta-alanine, the rate-limiting factor in carnosine synthesis, to slow the changes that may be seen as we age. Changes may begin as early as age thirty and they accelerate as we age.

Studies show that 2.4 grams of beta-alanine per day is the effective amount of supplementation needed to support everyday wellness and healthy aging.* Supplementation with traditional forms of beta-alanine may lead to paresthesia, a harmless tingling sensation that is not desired by consumers looking for everyday wellness and healthy aging solutions. SR CarnoSyn®’s patented formula provides a safe and effective method of beta-alanine supplementation to support carnosine production without the sensation of paresthesia.

Why not supplement with carnosine directly?

Supplementing with beta-alanine is much more efficient and cost-effective than direct carnosine supplementation because the body doesn’t need the extra histidine.

Carnosine Supplements

Carnosine supplements can be up to 25x more expensive than beta-alanine supplementation.

molecular weight

Carnosine’s molecular weight is 2.5x higher than beta-alanine.


By weight, only 40% of carnosine supplements are beta-alanine. The rest are histidine and added ingredients.

Carnosine Supplementation

The body has to work twice as hard when supplementing with carnosine because it’s broken down during digestion into beta-alanine & histidine. The body then resynthesizes it back into carnosine.
