Possibly: Studies for Zinc Carnosine are between. 75 and 150 mg dose with the latter one being more effective. The main issue from a strict scientific standpoint is that the numbers in the studies were not that many people. Proton pump inhibitors have best studies behind them-Nexium, Prilosec, Prevacid (lansoprazole).
