N-acetyl L-carnosine supplements provide L-carnosine, an anti-oxidant dipeptide molecule and amino acid produced naturally in the body from the covalent bonding of the amino acids histidine and alanine via the enzyme carnosine synthetase. 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.
N-acetyl L-carnosine and L-carnosine are taken as dietary supplements due to the ability of these dipeptides to scavenge reactive oxygen species and supporting cellular structural components from oxidative stress.
