L-Carnitine by BioGenesis

L-Carnitine is an essential cofactor for several enzymes necessary for transport of free long chain fatty acids into the mitochondria.

- Beneficial for heart and circulatory health
- May have neuroprotective properties
- Possible immune system benefits
- Supports mitochondrial fatty acid metabolism for high energy and overall vitality

L-CARNITINE occurs naturally in animal products (esp. beef) with smaller amounts in dairy, fish, and chicken. There are also very small amounts in avocado and some fermented soy products such as tempeh. Methionine and lysine serve as precursors to the synthesis of L-Carnitine. People with high stress levels, parenteral nutrition patients, and elderly patients may not be able to synthesize sufficient quantities of L-Carnitine. Under these circumstances L-Carnitine is considered a conditionally essential nutrient and supplementation may be required. Children at 2 1/2 years of age synthesize L-Carnitine at about 30% the adult rate. Full capacity does not occur until age 15.

L-Carnitine has cardioprotective activity, triglyceride lowering, and HDL raising benefits. L-Carnitine may have neurological protective properties.
