L-Carnitine (1000mg) Overview
L-carnitine supplements help your body burn fat as an energy source, so they're great for heart health (the heart muscle uses fat for most of its energy needs) and for dieters. But recommended amounts of supplemental carnitine are usually in the 1-3 gram range, making these 1000 mg L-carnitine tablets from NOW Foods a more sensible way to use carnitine than expensive liquid carnitines or a handful of 500 mg capsules.
