  • 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

    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 placebo-controlled
    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 double-blind
    placebo-controlled trial, carnitine supplementation
    supported training for elite athletes.*
