What is L-Carnitine?
L-Carnitine is an amino acid that plays a critical role in energy production within your body. It is found in nearly every cell and it transports long-chain fatty acids from the bloodstream into the mitochondria within your cells so that the fatty acids can be burned (oxidized) and converted into energy . This has several benefits affecting your health.
What Benefits Can Supplementing Bring?
Only small amounts of L-Carnitine are produced in the body and/or come naturally from food. By supplementing L-Carnitine, its powerful fat-burning and energy-producing effects are magnified. Here is what it can do for you:
A recent Chinese study  has also shown that supplementing L-Carnitine while fasting not only helped the subjects lose over 30% more weight, but also decreased hunger and fatigue while fasting compared to a placebo group. There are several ways that L-Carnitine can be taken to supplement nutrition.
We offer high-grade L-Carnitine capsules from Metabolic Maintenance at 25% off the retail price. These are ideal for patients who want the ease and convenience of capsules.
Much more L-Carnitine is absorbed and used by your body when it is injected because it doesn’t have to go through your digestive system. This means that not only can you inject smaller amounts than you would have to take in capsule form, but it works faster and more efficiently. Our 30mL vial of injectable L-Carnitine will help your body work better as you work toward your strength and fat-loss goals. We also offer an L-Carnitine-based lipotropic called Lipo-C which contains additional nutrients to maximize the fat-burning power of L-Carnitine.
When taken via an IV infusion to boost athletic performance or to increase metabolism and cardiovascular health, L-Carnitine starts working immediately throughout your entire body because it goes straight into your bloodstream.
Whichever way you decide to supplement your L-Carnitine, it does some great things for your body to help keep you leaner, stronger, and healthier.
