• Anserine (β-alanyl-N-methylhistidine) is a dipeptide containing β-alanine and 1-methylhistidine, which can be found in the skeletal muscle and brain of mammals and birds. (wikipedia.org)
  • report in their paper in the Archives of Gerontology and Geriatrics that the provision of both, carnosine and its "bird analogue" anserine, which is the major "buffering" dipeptide in bird muscle, will have astonishingly significant beneficial effects on the cognitive functioning and physical capacity of elderly individuals.
