Carnitine plays a key role in fat metabolism and energy production and concentrates in the body in skeletal muscle, and the heart, liver, and kidneys. Carnitine improves endurance and athletic performance and promotes healthy body composition by aiding the conversion of fat into energy. On a cellular level carnitine is critical for metabolic processes that produce energy, such as converting ketones and branched-chain amino acids into energy. Carnitine is also a potent antioxidant.

Carnitine enhances cognition, lessens fatigue, and boosts physical and mental energy. By increasing oxygen consumption at the cellular level and decreasing lactic acid production, carnitine may improve athletic performance and muscle recovery

Several conditions may benefit from carnitine supplementation, including high lipid levels, liver and kidney disease, male infertility, cardiovascular disease, ischemia, peripheral vascular disease, chronic fatigue, and fatigue associated with conditions such as chronic illness.

How it works:

Carnitine plays a critical role in energy balance across cell membranes and in energy metabolism, especially in skeletal and cardiac muscle which are not capable of carnitine synthesis. Carnitine is essential to transport fatty acids across the cell membrane, which is the first step in turning fat into energy. This process is known as fatty acid oxidation. By facilitating energy production carnitine helps maintain proper muscle and nerve cell function.

During exercise, fatty acid oxidation increases and is the predominant energy source for muscles. Decreased carnitine levels and acidosis during heavy exercise contribute to fatigue and exercise-induced muscle injury.

A deficiency of carnitine causes disruption of the muscle fibres and an accumulation of fat in the liver, heart, and skeletal muscle, and a number of diseases are associated with carnitine deficiency. Fatigue is a common symptom of many chronic diseases and is often more distressing to the individual than symptoms such as pain, nausea, or vomiting. Reducing fatigue can be a major factor in improving quality of life for many people with chronic disease.

Carnitine enhances cognition, lessens fatigue, and boosts physical and mental energy, as well as improving athletic performance and muscle recovery.
