L-Carnitine is a naturally occurring amino acid required for the metabolism and transport of fatty acids.* Population studies have shown that many vegetarians are unable to meet optimal carnitine requirements. While the body can produce carnitine in the liver and kidneys it does so at a slow rate. Humans may also get carnitine in their diet from certain meats, but as plants don’t contain carnitine, vegan and vegetarians are especially susceptible to deficiencies.
L-Carnitine helps transports fats (lipids) into cells where it can be used for energy, playing a critical role in fat metabolism in heart and skeletal muscle tissue where fat conversion to energy is most required.* Improved lipid metabolism may in turn support healthy weight management, support exercise performance and balance triglyceride or cholesterol levels.* These changes can result in better energy levels, allow you to be more active and curb cardiovascular health risk factors.*
