What is L-histidine powder?
It is the product by HSNraw which has been designed to provide this amino acid in its purest form. This high quality product does not contain excipients or other additives, only 100% histidine from vegetables obtained through natural fermentation.
L-histidine performs important tasks in the organism.
Why take Histidine?
Essential amino acids are different from the rest of amino acids that make up the proteins because our body cannot synthesize them, just like vitamins. If we do not take them from the diet, we will suffer a deficiency and we will not be able to produce proteins (Institute of Medicine, 2005)
Now you can enjoy the best quality at the best price!
The functions of L-histidine
First of all, it is essential because it performs important asks in the organism of human beings. We could not live without it, just like other amino acids like Leucine.
Histidine and muscle mass
Just like the rest of essential amino acids, it is necessary to produce complex proteins that make up the organs and systems of our organism.
For example, one of them is the muscle system, which is made up of contractile units which in turn are made up of proteins. Restricting the intake of L-histidine can alter the protein balance in the body, triggering catabolism due to a lack of an essential compound that cannot be fixed with any other product (Institute of medicine, 2005).
Histidine itself makes up part of the proteins that are in charge of the muscle contraction. Therefore, it is important when it comes to preserving this function, a property that is quite interesting for athletes and those who do physical exercise regularly.
L-histidine in sport
Apart from its properties for muscle proteins, histidine makes up other more important proteins for the sport performance.
L-histidine makes up part of the hemoglobin, a protein that plays a key role in endurance athletes. Above all, it is in charge of transporting oxygen through the blood and, therefore, it provides oxygen to the muscle tissue in order to obtain energy.
It produces carnosine when it binds with beta-alanine in the muscle tissue. This is a peptide with antioxidant properties and the main intracellular buffer that we have.
A buffer is a substance that is capable of inhibiting the production of protons which are produced during high intensity physical exercise. These elements limit our ability to reach a high intensity during physical activities. Moreover, carnosine helps to regulate the intracellular pH balance, improving the sport performance during high intensity physical exercise (Sale et al., 2013).
Other important functions of L-histidine
That is right, this powerful amine has become quite unpopular because it is responsible of reactive allergies. In other words, the symptoms of allergic reactions are due to the release of histamines by the cells of the immune system.
However, this is just a defense mechanism against a strange agent. Histamine is important when it comes to regulating the immune system, protecting the nerves and producing hydrochloric acid in the stomach in order to digest food (Branco et al., 2018).
L-histidine is an important precursor of proteins that perform regulatory functions in the organism. Taking it from the diet is extremely important in order to preserve the balance of our organism.
Our L-histidine has been obtained from a 100% natural fermentation of vegetable sources. We have come up with a raw product without animal ingredients, which is why our product is suitable for vegans.
Make sure to meet the minimum histidine requirements by purchasing our product!
