L-Carnitine 500mg contains 100% Carnipure L-carnitine tartrate. A unique patented process that excludes the use of gen technology and animal products is deployed to manufacture this supplement. Each L-carnitine capsule supplies 500mg premium quality L-carnitine.
L-carnitine plays a central role in metabolic processes and has a potentially positive effect in many ways. It plays an especially prominent role in the production of energy. In this function it transports fatty acids into the cell mitochondrions, where they are burned and converted into ATP (cell energy).
The body constantly produces L-carnitine using various enzymes, as well as the amino acids methionine and lysine, as well as vitamin C, iron, niacin, vitamin B6, iron and alpha-ketoglutarate. A part is stored in the body, especially in the muscle tissue, in the heart muscle and in the brain.
As humans age, the concentration of L-carnitine in the tissue declines significantly, which may lead to reduced muscle strength, fatigue and a loss of muscle mass. The drop of L-carnitine levels in the brain may result in dementia and a decline in intellectual capabilities.
Taking an L-carnitine supplement boosts the production of energy and thus has the capability of improving, both the physical and the mental performance – especially in athletes and seniors. The increased energy production in the body's cells also has a positive impact on cardiovascular functions.
Individuals who are weight conscious may boost the beta-oxidation of fatty acids by taking an L-carnitine supplement. Combining the supplement with a special diet and ample exercise will boost the amount of fat calories burnt. In men, L-carnitine also has the potential to improve sperm quality.
L-carnitine has the capability to support post athletic activity regeneration process. L-carnitine supplements protect against muscular pain and tissue damage. They also support the body throughout the regeneration phase. If taken along with carbohydrates, more L-carnitine is stored in the body, which is of critical importance for the muscle fat oxidation during intense training phases. This is particularly beneficial for those combating obesity and type II diabetes.
The goal of weight reduction plans should always be a reduction of fat cells while maintaining the body's muscle mass. L-carnitine is a nutrient that ensures that fatty acids are converted into energy. Given that L-carnitine has the capacity of boosting beta oxidation, it reduces the consumption of glucose while it also results in the reduction of the use of amino acids for the production of energy. L-carnitine combats excessively rapid drops in glucose levels and thus reduces sudden sensations of hunger
The heart obtains around 70% of its energy from the oxidation of fatty acids. Hence, L-carnitine is a critically important nutrient that helps provide energy to the myocardium. This may also improve the heart function in individuals suffering from cardiovascular diseases and chronic heart failure.
Given that seniors frequently eat less, they also ingest fewer nutrients the body requires for the production of L-carnitine. Moreover, these individuals often eat less meat, which is the main nutritional source for L-carnitine. This may result in low L-carnitine levels and thus an impairment of the energy metabolism.
Around 40% of infertility issues have to be attributed entirely or partially to reduced sperm quality, whereby the number, mobility and shape of the sperms play key roles. Studies also indicate that L-carnitine has the capability of impacting male fertility in a positive way if taken over a period of 3 to 6 months.
Red meat and dairy products are the primary sources of L-carnitine. Although the human body has the capability of producing L-carnitine itself from the amino acids methionine and lysin, the L-carnitine concentration in vegans and vegetarians is lower than in other individuals and their capability to transport L-carnitine into the muscles may be impaired. Consequently, vegetarians and vegans could benefit from L-carnitine supplements.
If administered in the recommended dosage, L-carnitine is a very safe supplement, even if taken over long periods of time. Only users administering very high doses of more than 3 to 5 grams (6 to 10 capsules) may experience loose stool or problems falling asleep. However, these issues will promptly disappear if the dosage is reduced.
