    That said, I am still not 100% certain.
    I took about 15 grams of carnosine and melted a 1/2 pound of coconut oil and mixed them in suspension. This made a very good antioxidant skin cream for a month for my face and arms. I just wanted to test the results, and my skin did improve. I didn't continue because beyond experimenting I don't care enough. I have not tested it orally as I still take BA, but I should as I've still got 85 grams of bulk left over.


  2. Your experience and anecdotal feedback are interesting but coconut oil has beneficial skin healing attributes on its own.

  3. Yes, and that is why I've never came back here and mentioned it. But I do think I will try 2 grams a day orally and drop the BA for a while. I just want to test it out for myself. I am interested in rejuvenation from many viewpoints.

  4. Would be very interested in hearing your results.

  5. I am also interested in those results.

  6. So, which should I get ? I am a 35 year old vegetarian interested in the effects on the brain, gym/muscle also, but secondary. Carnosine or Beta Alanine? I get around 100 grams protein daily from cottage cheese and whey protein/milk. Is that enough histadine ?

  7. If you eat a lot of carbs, I'd go with Bentofiamine, if not, Carnosine

    Since you are looking for "protection" verses ergogenic effect, I'd choose Carnosine

    There's also lipoic acid and several other items that are notable anti-glycation agents

    Do you have any good links to info on the Vitamin D3. I've recently started taking 10,000iu which was recommended by my doctor as apparently my D3 were extraordinarily low. All else was good though.

  12. Dutch, how's your libido? I heard that so much fish oil and curcumin affects it for some.
