L-Carnitine - 120 Veggie Capsules
L-Carnitine is a derivative of the amino acid lysine that is found naturally in the body. L-Carnitine supports fat metabolism, delays fatigue during physical activity and helps improve physical performance when used in conjunction with a training regimen. L-Carnitine also supports the muscle recovery process during resistance training by supporting antioxidant capacity, reducing muscle tissue damage and supporting its repair.
•Energy/Fatigue •Athletic performance •Cardiovascular health •Weight management L-Carnitine is an amino acid synthesized by the body from the essential amino acids lysine and methionine, and can also be obtained from red meat – particularly lamb. For this reason, L-carnitine deficiency is quite common among vegetarians and even health-conscious people who simply avoid red meat, and an L-carnitine deficiency as a result of this can have some ironic consequences for such a health-conscious segment of the population. This is because L-carnitine plays a central role in the metabolic breakdown of long-chain fatty acids and their subsequent transport into the mitochondria for their oxidation and use in the production of cellular energy.
