Carnosine (beta-alanyl-L-histidine) is a dipeptide of the amino acids beta-alanine and histidine. It is highly concentrated in muscle and brain tissues.
Like carnitine, carnosine is composed of the root word carn, meaning flesh, alluding to its prevalence in animal protein. A vegetarian (especially vegan) diet is deficient in adequate carnosine, compared to levels found in a standard diet.
Carnosine can chelate divalent metal ions.
Carnosine can increase the Hayflick limit in human fibroblasts,as well as appearing to reduce the telomere shortening rate. Carnosine is also considered as a geroprotector.

Uses of L-carnosine
L-carnosine's health benefits are generally due to its antioxidant properties, which support many age-related conditions. The specific uses of l-carnosine include support for the skin, joints, digestive system and memory.
Skin support:L-carnosine can help defy the visible signs of aging in the skin. It helps to maintain the skin's elasticity, which can minimize wrinkles.
Memory support:L-carnosine may help support brain health as well as help improve absentmindedness and memory recall.
Digestive health support:L-carnosine may help support the digestive system manage Helicobacter pylori, a species of bacteria that can cause peptic and gastric ulcers.
Joint support: L-carnosine supports joint health by supporting healthy inflammation management and delaying the onset of joint conditions that can occur as you age.
