Yep, we’ve known this for quite some time now, which is why we have a great L-carnitine supplement.
L-Carnitine and Weight Loss
L-carnitine is a compound that does literally turn fat into fuel. Technically speaking, L-carnitine is produced with the amino acids lysine and methionine, as well as vitamins B6, niacin and Vitamin C. Vitamin C and lysine have been clinically proven to increase levels of L-carnitine in the body.
L-carnitine enhances the consumption of fat as a source of fuel by facilitating in the transport of these fatty acids to be burned for energy. L-carnitine assists mitochondria in producing energy for the cells within the body. L-carnitine has been referred to as a ‘cell-energizer’ for its ability to contribute to ‘cell vitality.’
Nearly every single cell in the body contains mitochondria to remain energized. While the cells within your body are energized and burning fat, you remain energized and healthy.
We include L-carnitine in our Cardio Juvenate formula for many reasons, but the main two are heart health and weight loss. With its proven ability to increase energy and burn fat, L-carnitine is a great weight loss supplement.
