Carnosine is a dipeptide made up of two amino acids, alanine and histidine. Carnosine is abundant in human muscle tissue and brain. Supplementing with L-carnosine has a wide range of health benefits. It is primarily known as an anti-aging nutrient and is found naturally in small amounts in animal meats.
Brain health is another promising application for carnosine. A unique mechanism of carnosine is that it regulates acidity and alkalinity inside the cell, optimizing the cellular environment.
