Carnitine is an important Amino Acid made by the body from Lysine. Its most important known metabolic function is to transport long chain fatty acids into the mitochrondria of muscle cells, including those in the Myocardium, for oxidation. In this sense, Carnitine is essential for normal growth development. Cardiac muscle is especially dependent upon this mechanism as an important source of metabolic energy. In addition Carnitine has a role in the Thermogenesis (heat production) of Brown Adipose Tissue, and in the regulation of Gluconeogenesis. It is often taken as a supplement by slimmers.Dietary supplementation of L-Carnitine can safeguard intake of this metabolically essential substance. Because of its physiological role, L-Carnitine supplementation is also favoured by sports people.Do not take if pregnant or breastfeeding.
