As an amino acid‚ l-carnitine is involved in several essential bodily functions. This is shown by the fact that it is prevalent in heart and skeletal muscles. Perhaps most importantly‚ it helps your cells produce energy by transporting fatty acids to the mitochondria for oxidation and conversion. During this metabolic process‚ the mitochondria can be bogged down by remnants of short and medium chain fatty acids; l-carnitine can help remove them.
If you do not have enough of it in your body‚ supplementation can help. Pure Encapsulations' L-Carnitine is a convenient source of this amino acid to support the heart muscle. It can promote oxygenation‚ a process that provides oxygen to this vital organ; the oxygen-rich blood transported to the heart may also promote increased cardiovascular energy. By supporting the functioning of the ventricle‚ l-carnitine also works to pump blood throughout the circulatory system‚ especially the lungs.
Furthermore‚ carnitine can also help maintain healthy enzyme activity: this includes lipid peroxide and lactate dehydrogenase cardiac enzymes‚ as well as superoxide dismutase enzymes (SOD).
In addition‚ L-Carnitine can promote exercise recovery‚ especially after high-intensity activity. Allowing your muscles to recover allows for more--and more effective--physical training by potentially decreasing soreness‚ as well as damage to tissues. Carnitine supplements may also discourage the production of free radicals that may harm cells.
One capsule provides 340 milligrams of free-form l-carnitine. It also contains fat-soluble vitamin C to further promote absorption.
Take two to four capsules daily‚ in divided doses between meals. At the recommended dosage‚ each 60-capsule bottle of L-Carnitine by Pure Encapsulations should last from 15 days to one month.
