Now Foods L-Carnosine 500mg 100 Vcaps #0079
Now Foods L-Carnosine is classified as a dipeptide, which is a combination of two amino acids, in this case alanine and histidine. It naturally occurs in high concentrations in skeletal muscle tissue, and therefore may support muscle vitality. L-Carnosine is also an antioxidant that stabilizes cellular membranes, protecting them from damage by free radicals. Because L-Carnosine is only found in vertebrates, it is especially important for persons who do not consume beef, pork or chicken.
What foods contain L-carnosine?
The top food sources of carnosine are meats, such as turkey, chicken, beef, or pork. Other animal products such as eggs, milk, and cheese contain carnosine, but only in trace amounts. Since carnosine is found in the muscle, the higher the carnosine concentration, the stronger the muscle.
