Natural support for healthy metabolism & cardiovascular health
L-Carnitine is an amino acid derivative with the essential function of helping fat enter the mitochondria, which are the sites where fuel substrates—such as fats—are converted into energy inside cells. Dietary fats and stored body fat are rich sources of energy, but they require carnitine for transport into the mitochondria. Simply put, without adequate carnitine, fat cannot be used as a fuel source in the body. As a result of impaired fat metabolism, suboptimal carnitine levels may interfere with fat loss, hinder athletic performance (both aerobic and anaerobic – cardio and resistance training), and hamper the maintenance of healthy blood lipids, such as cholesterol and triglycerides.
L-carnitine occurs naturally in all foods, with animal proteins being the richest sources—particularly red meat and dark meats, such as lamb, beef, and dark meat poultry. Very small amounts are present in plant foods. The human body produces carnitine from the amino acids methionine and lysine, along with iron and vitamins B3 and B6. There are times, however, when the physiologic demand for carnitine exceeds combined dietary intake and the body’s production capacity.
Recommended Use: As a dietary supplement, take one capsule per day before meals, or as directed by your health care practitioner.
