One of the mechanisms underlying the aging process is proposed to be oxidative damage by free radicals. Carnosine (b-alanyl-Lhistidine) is a dipeptide with antioxidant properties. In this study, we investigated the effect of carnosine supplementation on oxidative stress in serum, apoB-containing lipoproteins (LDL + VLDL) and erythrocytes of young and aged rats.
