L Histidine Base

CAS NO: 16856-18-1

L-Histidine Base is an essential amino acid with the chemical formula C6H9N3O2. It is one of the 20 amino acids that are used to build proteins in the body. L-Histidine is important for the growth and repair of tissues, the production of red and white blood cells, and the synthesis of histamine, a compound involved in immune response and digestion. It also plays a crucial role in the maintenance of the myelin sheath that surrounds nerve cells, helping to ensure proper transmission of nerve impulses. L-Histidine is obtained through the diet from sources such as meat, fish, and dairy products, and it can also be synthesized in the body from other amino acids. L-Histidine supplements are sometimes used to treat certain medical conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis, but should only be taken under the guidance of a healthcare provider.
