L-carnitine is responsible for maintaining energy metabolism in all the body's cells: it transports fatty acids across cell membranes to the mitochondria where they are burned' for energy.
As its name suggests, l-carnitine is only found in animal products, and at the maximum proportion of 100mg per 100g red meat.
Vegetarians and those who rarely eat meat should therefore consider supplementation.
L-carnitine: Helps each of the body's cells work at its optimal energy level Helps lower blood triglyceride levels Helps prevent certain cardiovascular diseases, particularly cardiac arrhythmia Helps weight loss when supplementation is combined with a low-carb diet Naturally increases energy levels Significantly improves performance in endurance sports and reduces muscular stress after exercise.
Sports enthusiasts, vegetarians and overweight individuals should opt to supplement with l-carnitine rather than the more expensive, cerebroactive' acetyl-l-carnitine, or at least combine the two.
US nutritionist Robert Crayon, who has written a best-seller on this supernutrient', recommends combining l-carnitine and acetyl-l-carnitine in equal proportions.
L-carnitine tartrate is a patented, non-hygroscopic and particularly stable form of l-carnitine.
