Antioxidant dipeptide for cell protection l-Carnosine (beta-alanyl-L-histidine) occurs naturally in the body's muscle and nervous tissues and is formed by the amino acids alanine and histidine.
Levels of this dipeptide can decline with age.
It is a water-soluble antioxidant with free-radical scavenging activity and is believed to promote cell health and cell longevity.
In vitro, l-carnosine maintains healthy advanced glycation end-product, or AGE, activity.
These end-products are formed when aldehydes (such as aldose and ketose sugars) and lipid peroxidation by-products bind to proteins.
l-Carnosine plays a role in maintaining DNA integrity.
l-Carnosine may also support superoxide dismutase activity.
