L-carnitine has been shown to stimulate the use of fat for fuel and boost metabolism, making it essential to energy generation in the body.
- Improves Cellular Energy Production
- Stimulates Fat Utilization and Boosts Metabolism
- Promotes Cardiovascular Health
- Supports Post-Training Muscle Recovery
Produced in the body from L-lysine and L-methionine, the synthesis of L-carnitine requires optimal amounts of other key nutrients including niacin, pyridoxine, vitamin C, and iron for synthesis. Following production, L-carnitine is transported to the cardiac and skeletal muscle, where 98% of total body L-carnitine is stored. The heart and skeletal muscles, as well as many other tissues, depend on fatty acid oxidation as a source of energy. L-carnitine is an essential nutrient required for the transportation of long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondrial matrix. Within the mitochondria of each cell, a metabolic process called beta-oxidation occurs, resulting in the production of energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). L-carnitine also aids in the transport of short-chain and medium-chain fatty acids out of the mitochondria and aids in the liberation of coenzyme A, an important component of ATP.
L-carnitine is an amino acid essential for the transport of fatty acids into the cell mitochondria. Research has shown that L-carnitine stimulates the use of fat for fuel and boosts metabolism, which plays a key role in weight management. L-carnitine has also been found to support cardiovascular health and increase aerobic capacity during exercise. The L-Carnitine formulation provides 500 mg of L-carnitine per capsule, now delivered using quick-release, fast-absorbing Licaps® Technology. The Licaps® capsule shell matrix seals and protects the nutrient inside with a nitrogen bubble, ensuring maximum freshness. The thin shell dissolves rapidly, releasing a liquid formulation that speeds nutrient absorption. These cutting-edge advancements in capsule filling, sealing, and nutrient delivery ensure therapeutic potency and efficacy.
1 capsule three times per day or as recommended by your health care professional.
