L-Carnitine is a combination of two amino acids. It is abundant in red meat and dairy products, which also are abundant in cholesterol and fat. The average non vegetarian diet provides 100 to 300 mg of L - Carnitine. The daily requirement for physically active adults is 2 to 3 grams. It is obvious that a diet low in red meat does not provide enough L - Carnitine.
It has several important functions in energy metabolism. When the body breaks down fat for energy, the resulting fatty acids must be transported into the mitochondria - the cell´s furnaces - to be burned for energy. L - Carnitine is responsible for this transport; without it, fatty acids can not be burned and are redeposited as fat, and in their place glucose and protein are burned for energy. In addition, studies have shown, that patients with peripheral vascular disease and subsequent reduction of their walking capacity, can increase the length of walking distance when given 3g of L - Carnitine daily.
It does not influence the blood circulation, but improves energy metabolism in the ischaemic leg muscles. It is experimentally used in patients with certain muscle wasting diseases, such as Post Polio Syndrom.
Take at least 2g per day in divided doses.
Each capsule contains 500 mg L-Carnitin
