L-Carnitine has been approved by the FDA under the name CARNITOR, as a therapy for low energy levels, heart congestion and other diseases associated with low cellular energy.
Numerous published studies have shown that L-Carnitine is effective in treating a wide range of diseases including aging, immune dysfunction, blood sugar complications, cardiovascular metabolism and weight management.
In addition to helping those with L-Carnitine deficiencies, this supplement may be beneficial for:
- Attention and focus
- Reproductive concerns
- Thyroid function
- Kidney function
- Liver function
- Energy metabolism
- Conversion of fat deposits into energy.
L-Carnitine is an amino acid produced by your body from the combination of two other amino acids (L-Lysine and L-Methionine). Your body produces L-Carnitine in your liver and kidneys, and stores it in your skeletal muscles, heart and brain.
L-Carnitine helps you convert long-chain fatty acids into energy, which is used primarily for muscular activities. It is also used for fat-burning, increasing energy, and improving resistance to muscle fatigue.
L-Carnitine is essential to building muscle in the ATP energy cycle because of its oxidation properties with Pyruvate and branched chain amino acids (L-Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine).
L-Carnitine may also inhibit lactic acid buildup in the muscles. Lactic acid buildup is the top cause of muscle atrophy and fatigue, two common contributors to chronic soft tissue inflammation and pain. Clinical research reveals muscle levels of L-Carnitine are markedly increased after supplementation. Clinical research has also shown that L-Carnitine supports athletic performance in endurance athletes.
L-Carnitine deficiency can lead to elevated serum Triglyceride levels. In the human body, high levels of triglycerides in the bloodstream have been linked to poor heart health and blood clot issues.
L-Carnitine has been known to reduce Triglyceride levels by as many as 100 points in 10 days with the proper dosage.
Liquids are known to be more effective in activating the saliva glands than capsules, pills, or lozenges. This allows the Liquid L-Carnitine to enter the bloodstream quickly and efficiently. Other forms absorption rates are not equally effective.
