Customer Review

Product Description

L-carnitine is a type of amino acid found in the human body which is actively involved in many metabolic processes. It is highly concentrated in skeletal muscle tissue where it promotes fatty acids oxidation to produce celleular energy. Given these essential functions, L-carnitine supplementation helps to improve physical performance and endurance by enhancing muscle build up as well as promoting weight loss. There are different forms of carnitine, but L-carnitine is the non-toxic form.

Other important and key features of L-carnitine include:

- Helps weight loss
- Enhance physical performance
- Increases energy levels and fights fatigue
- Reduces muscle recovery time after exercise
- Promote red blood cell counts for hemodialysis individuals

L-carnitine is highly found in muscle fibers, with small amounts in the liver and blood. It is mainly responsible for energy production by transporting fatty acids to the mitochondria, followed by burning these fatty acids for energy production. However, long-chain fatty acids with larger size is very difficult to be transport around the cells, and hence, are commonly stored as body fats. With the capability of mobilizing these fatty acids, L-carnitine promotes weight loss by aiding mitochondrial fat burning capability.

Due to its high concentrations in the muscles, this amino acid is a large contributor to the production of ATP, an energy molecule used in the human body. L-carnitine efficiently provides bodily energy hence enhancing athletic performances.
L-carnitine also reduces muscle fatigue by combating depletion of ATP and energy storage in muscle. It also increases mitochondria’s ability in producing large number of energy stores in the muscles, hence reduces muscle recovery time after strenuous physical activity. L-carnitine also promotes mitochondrial growth and health which eventually leads to healthy aging.

In addition, L-carnitine has been approved by FDA for preventing and treating L-carnitine deficiency, commonly seen in individuals undergoing hemodialysis. It is promising in increasing red blood cell counts hence combating anemia.

    L-Carnitine is a nutrient derived from amino acids lysine and methionine. L-Carnitine is not considered as an essential dietary supplement as it is naturally synthesized in our bodies. The body produces carnitine in liver and kidneys but it gets stored in skeletal muscles, brain, heart and other tissues. However, its production in the body may not be enough to meet increased energy demands of athletes or body builders and hence it is termed as conditionally essential nutrient.


     L-carnitine’s primary role in the body is to help in transport of fat to the mitochondria of cells, where it can be oxidized and used as fuel. In other words, L-carnitine helps the body in converting fatty acids in to energy that is used for muscular and all other activities in the body. Studies show that this is very effective during intense workout and it helps in meeting the energy need of the body during the exercise and even while resting. When coupled with exercise, L-carnitine can be effective in weight loss as well as it helps in burning fat for release of energy.


    Apart from its fat transport function, L-carnitine also enhances the insulin’s action on the muscle cells. This means that L-carnitine can help keep blood glucose levels under check, even after consuming a carb-rich meal. This is one of the reasons that L-carnitine is also recommended as a part of the post work out meal.
