L-HISTIDINE CRYSTALLINE POWDER USP.
Histidine (symbol His or H) is an α-amino acid that is used in the biosynthesis of proteins. It contains an α-amino group (which is in the protonated –NH3+ form under biological conditions), a carboxylic acid group (which is in the deprotonated –COO− form under biological conditions), and an imidazole side chain (which is partially protonated), classifying it as a positively charged amino acid at physiological pH. Initially thought essential only for infants, it has now been shown in longer-term studies to be essential for adults also. L-Histidine Crystalline Powder is an essential amino acid that is commonly used in the food and pharmaceutical industries. It is used as a nutritional supplement to support healthy growth and development, as well as to improve athletic performance. Additionally, L-Histidine is used in the production of various drugs and medications, including antihistamines and anti-inflammatory agents. Its crystalline powder form allows for easy incorporation into various products and formulations.
