L-Carnitine

L-Carnitine is synthesized in the human body (liver and kidneys) from essential amino acids (lysine and methionine).

It is essential for the maintenance of good health. Absolutely necessary for the transport of long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondria (the metabolic furnaces of the cell) where they are burned and transformed into energy. Ie. Very important in energy production.


Benefits

Treats angina pectoris (severe chest pain from insufficient blood flow and oxygen to the heart muscle). Treats and prevents some forms of cardiovascular disease.
Helps build stamina and muscles.
Protects against: liver disease, diabetes, kidney disease, muscle disease.
Helps to promote weight loss and enhance energy levels.

Dietary intake for optimal health is not known.

Always take L-Carnitine, the active form of carnitine found in our tissues (and NOT D-Carnitine, the biologically inactive form of Carnitine). An equal mixture of the 2 forms is called DL-Carnitine (which is available as supplements). D-carnitine has been linked to myasthenia-type syndrome.
