L-Carnitine (500mg) Overview
L-Carnitine is a non-essential amino acid synthesized from lysine and methionine in the body. The highest concentrations of L-Carnitine are found in muscle tissue, the heart and liver. L-Carnitine plays a crucial role in the metabolism of fatty acids into energy by acting as the body's "energy transporter,” helping to move long-chain fatty acids into the cell's mitochondria where they are converted into energy. L-Carnitine supplementation helps maintain general health and a lean, muscular body.*
L-Carnitine for Athletes and Bodybuilders
L-Carnitine is a great supplement for bodybuilders looking to gain lean muscle while minimizing fat gain. Excess calories are more likely to be burned as fat rather than stored as fat when supplementing with L-Carnitine, allowing maintenance of a lean physique while stacking on extra pounds of muscle during bulking phases and the off-season. L-Carnitine is also used in sports nutrition to enhance endurance and increase stamina for athletes, especially those undergoing constant strenuous exercise.*
L-Carnitine for Dieters
L-Carnitine supplementation is also ideal for dieters looking to strip away excess body fat at a faster pace. The combination of a sound, healthy diet and L-Carnitine is unrelenting against lingering body fat. L-Carnitine is particularly effective at those striving to lose those last few pounds of unwanted body fat, as the body is able to more efficiently use fat for energy rather than muscle. Because of its role in fatty acid metabolism, L-Carnitine is best utilized when taken with a meal, preferably 500mg three times a day with breakfast, lunch, and dinner. *

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 naturally occurs in red meat and other animal source foods, but we recommend supplementation to obtain optimal levels of this excellent amino acid. Our L-Carnitine is the purest form, clinically tested, and vegetarian (non-animal sourced).
