A water-soluble chicken extract is popularly consumed as a traditional health food. The studies made revealed that it could increase the survival time and inhibit the increase of locomotor activity in rats loaded with food-deprived activity stress. The mechanism for this might be related to an elevation of the brain histamine level, and the active ingredient, carnosine. might contribute to this effect.
