What is L-Histidine?
Histidine is one of the 23 amino acids used to build proteins in humans, known chemically
as proteinogenic amino acids. It uses the codons cytosine-adenine-uracil (CAU) and
cytosine-adenine-cytosine (CAC). The German physician Albrecht Kossel first isolated
histidine in 1896. It was first believed to be an essential amino acid only in infants, although
subsequent research has now established histidine as an essential amino acid for all humans.
An imidazole functional group is one of histidine’s defining characteristics and accounts for
many of its biochemical effects. This group serves as a catalytic site for some enzymes, and
it is also commonly used in biosynthesis of metalloproteins. Histidine is also frequently used
to activate amino acids such as cysteine, serine and threonine as nucleophiles.
Benefits of Taking L-Histidine
Support for seasonal conditions
Histamine causes many of the symptoms associated with seasonal conditions. L-histidine
may help manage seasonal conditions by reducing the release of histamine from mast cells.
L-histidine may be useful in helping support the healthy manufacture of white and red blood cells.
Nervous system support
L-histidine may be helpful in maintaining the myelin sheaths that surround nerve cells.
Some studies show that L-histidine supplements may help manage joint conditions, especially
those associated with age. This benefit is most applicable for conditions caused by the
