L-Carnosine (Beta-alanyl-L-histidine) is a naturally-occurring di-peptide found in skeletal muscle, heart, brain, and other innervated tissues. Carnosine is formed when the enzyme carnosine sythetase bonds with the amino acids beta-alanine and L-histidine.The enzyme carnosinase helps maintain carnosine equilibrium. Carnosine plays a role in actively contracting muscles as well as the regulation of intracellular calcium and contractility in cardiac tissue. Carnosine is also being studied as being an anti-aging product due to its effects on advance glycosaylation end-products (AGEs).
