600 MG OF L-CARNITINE L-TARTRATE
L-Carnitine is a non-essential, water soluble amino acid that is created from two other amino acids, lysine and methionine, within the body. Every healthy person’s body is able to synthesize the appropriate amount of L-Carnitine through the liver and the kidneys.
L-Carnitine was brought onto the dietary supplementation scene during the 1980’s and was the most popular fatburning agent for a long time, until the stimulant-based products came in and took over. Today, however, it has come back and is more popular than ever. Technically, L-Carnitine is not an amino, but more of an ”amino-like” and ”vitamin-like” compound that is related to the B vitamins. For this reason, it was called vitamin BT when it was first studied in the 1950’s.
In the body, it is primarily found within muscles (incl. the heart) and the brain. We also get it through our diet, especially if we eat a lot of dairy products and red meat. You can, however, get it through avocados and soy beans as well. The L-form of carnitine is the one that is found in nature and is biologically active.
If you are in a calorie surplus, daily supplementation of L-Carnitin can help you minimize unnecessary and unwanted fat gain, and if you are in a calorie deficit, it can help you transport the fatty acids into the mitochondria of the cells and burn it off as energy. Other than serving as a very effective supplement for weight loss, L-Carnitine also increases blood flow to the muscles, meaning that more nutrients as well as hormones are transported to where they are needed when you perform physical exercise. It also reduces oxidative damage in the body’s nitric oxide, but also increases the effect of an enzymet that is crucial for the production of nitric oxide within the body. All-in-all: higher levels of nitric oxide in the blood, which not only increases endurance and stamina during workouts, but also aids in recovery afterwards.
