L-Carnitine (60 caps) by Orthomolecular
L-Carnitine-l-tartrate is a highly stabilized form of l-carnitine, an amino acid found abundantly in muscle tissue. It functions primarily to regulate fat metabolism, and also acts as a carrier of fatty acids into the mitochondria, the powerhouses of the cell, where they are oxidized and converted to energy. 60 capsules.
- Improves Cellular Energy Production
- Stimulates Fat Utilization and Boosts Metabolism
- Promotes Cardiovascular Health
- Supports Post-Training Muscle Recovery
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 to 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. Suggested Use: 1 capsule three times per day or as recommended by your health care professional
L-Carnitine 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. L-carnitine also aids in the transport of short-chain and medium-chain fatty acids out of the mitochondria and helps liberate coenzyme A, an important component of cellular energy.
