L-Carnosine is a naturally occurring dipeptide comprised of the two amino acids, beta alanine and histidine. LCarnosine is abundant in brain and muscle tissue (including the heart). As a protein, carnosine supports cardiovascular and neurological health through numerous mechanisms closely related to the inhibition of glycation, oxidation, and other physiological processes. Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) are proteins or lipids that become glycated after exposure to sugars, and can be a result of the normal aging process. The presence of AGEs in various cell types can affect extracellular and intracellular structure and function. This dipeptide may suppress the formation of advanced glycation end products (AGEs). In addition to its antioxidant properties, carnosine may participate in the regulation of enzyme activity and assist with the binding of heavy metals in the body. Carnosine also assists in the pH regulation of lactic acid in the muscles during intense exercise, thereby supporting exercise performance.
