Pure Encapsulations L-Carnitine offers support for the metabolism and heart. l-Carnitine Fumarate by Pure Encapsulations combines two important compounds. l-Carnitine, which is an amino acid present in skeletal and heart muscles, plays several roles in overall health. It can carry fatty acids into the cellular mitochondria, where they are then converted into energy. Furthermore, it helps remove short- and medium-chain fatty acids that are left over during metabolic processes, while maintaining healthy enzyme activity. Meanwhile, l-Carnitine Fumarate also contains fumaric acid. Fumaric acid (fumarate) promotes energy production, since it is part of the Krebs cycle. When combined with carnitine, fumarate provides additional support for energizing and protecting your cardiovascular muscles. Recommended use: 2 capsules, 1-2 times daily, between meals, or as directed by a healthcare professional.

Cardiovascular and endurance support* * l-Carnitine is an amino acid found abundantly in skeletal and heart muscle. It functions primarily to support fat utilization, and also acts as a carrier of fatty acids into the mitochondria, where they are oxidized and converted to energy. l-carnitine also facilitates the removal of short and medium chain fatty acids from the mitochondria that accumulate during normal metabolic processes. A randomized double blind, placebo-controlled trial of l-carnitine involving 101 volunteers indicated that l-carnitine maintained healthy cardiac enzymes including lipid peroxides and lactate dehydrogenase. In combination with other cardiovascular support agents, l-carnitine supported ventricular function and superoxide dismutase enzyme activity in human volunteers. Long-term l-carnitine supplementation indicated positive support for cardiovascular health after a 3-year follow-up in adult subjects. A recent placebo-controlled clinical study conducted at Ball State University in Indiana has found that l-carnitine-l-tartrate supplementation helps physical recovery from high intensity exercise. l-carnitine-l-tartrate contains 68% pure l-carnitine and 32% natural l-tartaric acid. l-carnitine-l-tartrate is a highly stabilized form of l-carnitine supporting cardiovascular health and recovery from exercise.*
