L-Carnitine is synthesized from the amino acids lysine and methionine. L-Carnitine imparts multiple benefits to the body which include:

  • • L-Carnitine is required for the transport of fatty acids into the heart muscle tissue and is therefore important for a healthy heart. L-Carnitine deficiency has been identified with a number of heart conditions.
  • • L-Carnitine is a great energy booster. Although L-Carnitine is not an essential amino acid, and can be synthesized by the body, a deficiency of l-carnitine can arise as a result of poor absorption, dietary deficiency of amino acids such as lysine and methionine, and a high fat diet. L-Carnitine also helps improve athletic performance. 
  • • Reseach shows that L-Carnitine supplements reduce high cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Studies indicate a reduction of approximately 20% in LDL (bad) cholesterol and approximately 28% reduction of triglycerides. 
  • • Carnitine levels correlate positively with both the numbers of sperm and sperm motility and studies indicate that L-carnitine may be of value in increasing sperm counts and sperm morphology. 

L-Carnitine dosage range: 500-1000 mg per day.
