What Is It?
L-Carnitine is an amino acid found abundantly in skeletal and heart muscle. It functions primarily to support fat utilization by acting as a carrier of fatty acids into the mitochondria, where they are oxidized and converted to
energy. l-Carnitine also facilitates the removal of short and medium chain fatty acids from the mitochondria that accumulate during normal metabolic processes. In studies, l-carnitine has demonstrated the ability to promote oxygenation of heart muscle and maintain healthy enzyme activity, support cardiovascular energy, enhance exercise recovery, and maintain healthy lipid metabolism.
Uses For L-Carnitine
Cardiovascular Support: A randomized double-blind placebo-controlled trial involving 101 volunteers indicated that l-carnitine maintained healthy lipid peroxide and lactate dehydrogenase cardiac enzyme activity. l-Carnitine
may also support ventricular function and superoxide dismutase enzyme activity. Long-term l-carnitine supplementation has demonstrated positive support for cardiovascular health after a 3-year follow-up in adult subjects. In a recent six-month, randomized, double-blind placebo-controlled trial, l-carnitine supplementation supported healthy lipid metabolism in volunteers.
Support For Exercise Recovery: A recent placebocontrolled clinical study conducted at Ball State University in Indiana found that l-carnitine-l-tartrate supplementation significantly supported physical recovery from high intensity exercise. This allows for less tissue damage, decreased production of free radicals and less muscle soreness following exercise. In a prospective doubleblind placebo-controlled trial, carnitine supplementation supported training for elite athletes.
What Is The Source?
L-Carnitine-l-tartrate contains 68% pure l-carnitine and 32% natural l-tartaric acid. Vitamin C (ascorbyl palmitate) is derived from corn dextrose fermentation and palm oil. Hypo-allergenic plant fiber is derived from pine cellulose.
