L-Carnitine, made in the body from the amino acids lysine and methionine. 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 is needed to release energy from fat.
L-Carnitine's actions appear to be particularly important in the heart for congestive heart failure (propionyl-L-carnitine). L-Carnitine's primamry health effects are also Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and angina (chest pain due to reduced blood flow to the heart).
L-Carnitine 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.
