Epilepsy & Nutrition

Epilepsy and Carnosine Therapy

This chronic disease belongs to those conditions where oxidative stress and carbonylation damage the brain cells. Carnosine effectively fights these reactions, and is therefore apt as a dietary supplement for these patients (Petroff et al. 2000; 2001, Nguimfack Mbodie 2002).

MEDLINE data base includes at this writing 24 documents on the relationship between carnosine and epilepsy. If you want to read them, search for "carnosine; epilepsy", and click "go".
