So, what is histidine?

Histidine is an essential amino acid that is crucial for protein synthesis and metabolism. It plays a vital role in the growth and repair of tissues, as well as in the production of red and white blood cells. Histidine is an important component of hemoglobin, the protein that carries oxygen in the blood, and it is also involved in the regulation of immune function and the maintenance of healthy skin, hair, and nails. Histidine is found in a variety of protein-rich foods, including meat, poultry, fish, dairy, and whole grains, making it easy to incorporate into a well-rounded diet.
