It has been proven that carnosine acts as a main and supplemental therapy in many diseases, including learning disorders, age-related conditions, and neurological problems. Carnosine stimulates the production of neurotransmitters that bind to receptors in the nerves, facilitates their relief, and helps to eliminate waste from the cells.
Current researches suggest that carnosine may have a protective and preventive effect in dyslexia and other learning disorders. According to the feedback of parents of children with dyslexia, by using carnosine some disorders associated with dyslexia have calmed down and reading improved.
Studies have shown that people with dyslexia have problems with reading, and a slight visual or auditory disturbance may impair their attention and concentration. Children with dyslexia cannot filter incoming information, which makes difficult to create mental categories for recognising the sound of words (phoneme), letters and words.
This research was published in January 2007 in the journal Psychological Science. Studies were conducted by neurologist Zhong-Lin Lu from the University of Southern California, research associate Anne Sperling from the National Institute of Health, psychologist Franklin Manis from the University of Southern California and psychologist Mark Seidenberg from the University in Madison-Wisconsin.
These scientists believe that the inability of filtration of sounds from the environment may be due to abnormally low levels of the neurotransmitter GABA, which helps the brain to filter out irrelevant information. Carnosine, inter alia, stimulates production of this neurotransmitter, protects the nervous system, thus having a positive effect on dyslexia.
Parents of children with dyslexia have noticed improvement in reading and a higher concentration with their children after a few weeks of using KarnozinExtra.
