Amino Acid That Helps Maintain Overall Good Health L-Carnitine is a non-essential amino acid that helps to maintain overall good health by facilitating the transfer of fatty acid groups into the mitochondrial membrane for cellular energy production.* It naturally occurs in red meat and other animal source foods, but we recommend supplementation to obtain optimal levels of this excellent amino acid. L-Carnitine is classified as an amino acid, although it is not an amino acid in the classic sense. Amino acids are generally used by the body for protein synthesis and/or as a neurotransmitter. Carnitine (actually more closely related to the B vitamins) is primarily used to facilitate the transport of long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondria of cells for energy production. This process provides muscular energy by burning fat, and also prevents fatty build-up around vital organs. Natural Carnitine is found primarily in red meats, so vegetarians may need to supplement to ensure healthy levels in their bodies. Our Carnitine is a synthetic product manufactured in a laboratory using bacterial synthesis, and is considered vegetarian due to the absence of any animal sources or by-products. NOW L-Carnitine is made from L-CarniPURE
L-Carnitine High Potency, Fast Acting, Great Tasting! L-Carnitine tablets do not contain any synthetic D-Carnitine or DL-Carnitine. D-Carnitine and DL-Carnitine are less effective than L-Carnitine. D-Carnitine and DL-Carnitine are not recommended because of their adverse physical side effects. L-Carnitine Benefits:
  • L-Carnitine is an Amino Acid
  • L-Carnitine High Potency
  • L-Carnitine Fast Acting
  • L-Carnitine Great Tasting
  • L-Carnitine is primarily involved with transporting long-chain fatty acids from the cell cytosol into the mitochondria. Since long chain fatty acids are oxidized (burned) in the mitochondria, L- Carnitine facilitates production of energy from fat. Oxidation (combining with oxygen) of the BCAAs is facilitated by L- Carnitine, providing a link between protein catabolism and cellular energy. Skeletal muscle contains 90% of total body carnitine in humans. L-Carnitine's Function during Aerobic Exercise:
  • L Carnitine Helps Increase Fat Metabolism
  • L Carnitine Increases Endurance
  • L Carnitine Improves Definition
  • L Carnitine Increases Utilization of Fatty Acids as Energy
  • L Carnitine Decreases Lactate Build Up
  • L Carnitine May Help in the Reduction of Ketones in the Blood. (important for diabetics)
