Carnosine

Carnosine is a molecule made of the 2 amino acids beta-alanine and histidine and is primarily found in muscle and brain tissue. It is important in sports because it helps to buffer lactic acid that is released by the muscles during exercise. It also has strong antioxidant properties.

Whenever the body has a drop in pH (increased acidity) either due to diet or increase in lactic acid, carnosine is released to buffer this acidity.

Beta-Alanine supplementation has been shown to increase the concentration of carnosine and, in turn, lactic acid buffering ability so it's a well used ingredient in sports nutrition supplements.
