L-carnitine is an important amino acid found in the heart and skeletal muscles. However‚ there are reasons why you may want or need an extra boost‚ and Pure Encapsulations'
It may provide an energy boost by carrying fatty acids into the mitochondria‚ which are the "factories" in each cell. These fatty acids are then oxidized and converted into energy. In addition‚ l-carnitine helps maintain mitochondrial health and function by working to remove accumulated short and medium-chain fatty acids; these fatty acids are remnants of normal metabolic processes‚ so l-carnitine intake kind of acts like an oil change for your car.
If you exercise regularly‚ l-carnitine is especially essential. It may support quicker‚ more effective recovery from high-intensity training. Tissue damage is lessened because fewer potentially harmful free radicals are produced. You may be able to keep functioning at a higher level due to decreased muscle soreness‚ instead of having to get your head (and body) out of the game.
Regardless of your physical activity level‚ l-carnitine may be capable of supporting cardiovascular well-being. Specifically‚ it can promote healthy ventricular functioning and superoxide dismutase enzyme activity. The latter may serve as antioxidants‚ providing a line of defense to most cells exposed to oxygen. One capsule of this supplement provides 340 milligrams of free-form l-carnitine‚ in addition to fat-soluble vitamin C to further promote absorption.
Each bottle of L-Carnitine by Pure Encapsulations contains 120 vegetable capsules. At the recommended dosage of two to four capsules daily between meals (in divided doses)‚ one bottle should last for one to two months.
