What is L Carnitine?

Carnitine is a naturally occurring amino acid, found in skeletal tissue and cardiac muscle. It helps the body to convert fat into energy. There are two types, D-Carnitine and L-Carnitine. L-Carnitine plays a key role in many biological processes including muscle, heart and brain function. Supplementing with L-Carnitine has been found to be effective in the treatment of a variety of disorders and diseases.

What are the benefits of L-Carnitine?

L-Carnitine has many biological benefits. Its key role is to support the metabolism by transporting fatty acids to mitochondria to be converted into energy. It has also been suggested that L-Carnitine:

  • Treats Carnitine deficiency;
  • Increases heart health and circulation in heart attack patients;
  • Reduce symptoms of heart failure;
  • Supports liver and kidney function;
  • Aids fat burning and weight loss.

What are the best sources of L-Carnitine?

Our bodies produce L-Carnitine naturally, and it can also be found in small amounts in a variety of foods including:

  • Beef;
  • Pork;
  • Fish;
  • Poultry;
  • Milk.

While it is best to follow a diet rich in nutrients, for those who are deficient or unable to follow a balanced diet which includes animal products, there may be a benefit to taking L-Carnitine supplements.
