L-carnosine is an amino acid dipeptide and anti-oxidant which is formed from the covalent bonding of the amino acids L-histidine and L-alanine. L-carnosine is found in relatively high concentrations in several body tissues, including the skeletal muscle, skin, kidneys, stomach, heart muscle, nerve tissue and brain.
L-carnosine is taken as dietary supplements due to the ability of these dipeptides to scavenge reactive oxygen species and supporting cellular structural components from oxidative stress.
