Study: Cataracts & N-Acetyl-Carnosine (NAC)

This study showed that using eyedrops containing n-acetyl-carnosine can stabilize and even improve cataracts.

Statistical analysis revealed the significant differences over 6 and 24 months in cumulative positive changes of overall characteristics of cataracts in the NAC-treated Group II from the control Group I. The N-acetylated form of natural dipeptide L-carnosine appears to be suitable and physiologically acceptable for nonsurgical treatment for senile cataracts.
