Why choose L-Carnitine?
L-Carnitine provides 500mg of L-Carnitine as fumarate per capsule.
L-Carnitine is a natural substance that plays an essential role in the metabolisation of fats for energy. L-Carnitine transports long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondria, where they are used to generate energy.
It is often used by athletes or those playing sports, particularly before exercise to support energy production. It is also popular with those looking to support weight loss and those on plant-based diets, as L-Carnitine is mainly found in aminal products. This product provides an easy way to keep your dietary levels of L-Carnitine topped up in a simple one-a-day capsule.
How does it help to generate energy?
L-Carnitine supports the transfer of long chain fatty acids across the membranes of mitochondria (the part of the cell used to generate energy), where they are oxidised for energy production which powers muscle contraction.
The cardiac muscle of the heart is most dependent upon this specific mechanism as a major source of metabolic energy. Because of this important metabolic and physiological function, L-Carnitine supplementation is often chosen by those who play sports or do lots of exercise.
L-Carnitine also has an important function in the process of thermogenesis (the production of heat) within brown adipose (fat) tissue, as well as the regulation of gluconeogenesis (the metabolic process used to generate glucose).
What is fumarate?
Our L-Carnitine is joined to fumarate. Fumarate is a compound formed in the krebs cycle, which is used by cells to produce energy. Together, L-Carnitine and fumarate can help with energy production.
Can the capsules be split open?
Yes, the capsules can easily be split open and added to your usual shakes and drinks if desired.
