Although its structure is not exactly the same as that of an amino acid, L-Carnitine is usually grouped with them due to the similar benefits it offers. The primary responsibility of L-Carnitine is to assist with the movement of fatty acids to the mitochondria, where they are then converted into usable energy; this energy is then used by your muscles and organs, such as the heart. In this role, L-Carnitine is crucial to optimizing the conversion of fat into the energy you need to live life to the fullest. An additional benefit of enhanced fat conversion is its ability to prevent the dangerous build up of fatty substances within your body—such buildup can be severely harmful to the heart, liver, and other muscles. In fact, the heart is dependent upon L-Carnitine to function correctly. In recent studies, a derivative of L-Carnitine—called Acetyl-L-Carnitine—has also shown promise in slowing the effects of aging in the brain and other nerve cells.
Anyone can potentially suffer from deficiencies in valuable nutrients, such as L-Carnitine. However, although your body is usually able to produce sufficient levels naturally, certain groups of people are more likely to be lacking in this substance. The HIV-positive and those who are on kidney dialysis are prone to having low L-Carnitine levels. Thorne Research’s L-Carnitine capsules have been shown to help support reproductive health, the metabolism of carbohydrates, and cardiovascular health. This is largely due to its ability to serve as an antioxidant.
There are also indications that L-Carnitine may boost athletic performance: when supplementing their diets with a L-Carnitine supplement, subjects studied have shown improvements in running speed, a decreased heart rate, lower oxygen consumption averages, and increased efficiency oxygen use. L-Carnitine may also be beneficial for people suffering from elevated levels of cholesterol and triglycerides, congestive heart failure, and angina pectoris.
Thorne Research strives to provide pure, high-quality supplements to people looking to enhance their health and well-being. Its products are commonly used in prestigious research studies, and are recommended by many doctors and health care practitioners. The company always goes the extra mile to ensure that Thorne Research dietary supplements are safe and effective for immune-compromised, allergic, and chemically sensitive patients.
