L-Carnitine for Athletic Performance, Longevity and Healthy Aging
L-Carnitine is an amino acid found in high concentrations in heart and liver tissues where it is involved in metabolizing fatty acids into energy in the mitochondria. L-Carnitine is a powerful fat burner and fat metabolism regulator. In promoting maximal uptake of fats and by increasing fat oxidation for energy, L-Carnitine helps produce ATP, a high energy compound that powers muscle contraction.
Increased energy enables intensive and extended workouts, promoting the fat burning process for that cut-up, hard body look. Research suggests that L-Carnitine’s role in energy generation is beneficial in supporting the continuous workload of the heart muscle.
