Thorne Research L-Carnitine supports athletic performance, cardiac muscle function, normal blood lipid levels, and overall wellbeing. Also helps convert fat to energy, an important amino acid for heart, skeletal muscle function, helps maintain healthy triglyceride levels, and supports a normal sperm count and sperm motility. L-carnitine is a cofactor that is required for the metabolism of fats and their subsequent transport into the mitochondria, where they undergo oxidation and produce energy. In the heart muscle, L-carnitine facilitates fatty acid use, and promotes rhythm, myocardial blood flow, and cardiac output. It has also been shown to benefit athletic performance. Studies show improvements in running speed, increased maximal oxygen uptake, and decreases in average oxygen consumption, heart rate, and lactic acid. In addition to supporting athletic performance, cardiac function, healthy lipid levels, and reproductive health, L-carnitine has also been shown to promote general wellbeing, appetite control, and carbohydrate metabolism.
Recommended use: Take 1 capsule, 3 times daily or as directed by a healthcare professional.
