L-CARNITINE™ is an amino acid which plays a vital role in the metabolism of fat. In the body,L-CARNITINE™ transports long-chain fatty acids across the mitochondrial membrane to be metabolized.
L-CARNITINE™ aids in the release of stored body fat, triglycerides, into the bloodstream for energy.
L-CARNITINE™ boosts energy by stimulating the body’s burning of triglycerides as fuel, and sparing the supply of glycogen stored in the liver for heavier exertion.
During exercise, the body will burn fat at a higher rate of maximum exertion, thus less glycogen from carbohydrates is burned. L-CARNITINE™ allows the body to burn more fat, save more glycogen, and ultimately boost stamina and endurance. By providing more fat to the muscles, carnitine makes accessible an otherwise unavailable energy source.
