There are numerous claims associated with L-Carnitine. Promoting healthy weight management, maintaining healthy heart function and enhanced recovery from exercise are just a few. L-Carnitine is known to act by assisting cellular machinery with the transport of FAT into the mitochondria, where it is converted for energy. L-Carnitine is a supplement for both the strength athlete as well as those who wish to augment their fat reduction program.
An Energy Nutrient
Carnipure L-Carnitine 500mg is a tablet form of L-Carnitine, a natural nutrient found within food and the human body, synthesized mainly in the kidneys and liver to assist in energy metabolism through the breakdown of fatty acids. L-Carnitine plays an essential role to vital organs within the body, such as the heart, muscles, liver and immune cells by transporting long-chain fatty acids from the cytosol across the mitochondrial membrane for subsequent breakdown of lipids (fats) for the generation of metabolic energy.
L-Carnitine is present within the human heart and skeletal muscle in high concentrations. Therefore, the heart is dependent upon L-Carnitine as a constant supply of energy to support healthy heart functions. Vegetarians, high performance athletes and anyone following a meat-reduced diet can benefit from L-Carnitine supplementation, since most diets are low in some of the nutrients essential for L-Carnitine biosynthesis, such as lysine, methionine and iron. Lysine and methionine are two essential amino acids required for L-Carnitine biosynthesis to occur. Vitamin C is also essential during biosynthesis. It acts as a reducing agent, donating electrons and preventing oxidation to keep iron and copper atoms in their reduced states. When cells do not have access to fat molecules, feelings of fatigue ensue since energy metabolism is affected. Moreover, fat tends to accumulate in tissues when carnitine concentrations are reduced.
Any malnutrition or lack of essential nutrients has a highly negative impact on the L-Carnitine biosynthesis, which depletes the body of natural energy required for healthy active lifestyles.
