L-carnitine has been shown to support the heart and cardiovascular system, help athletes optimize their performance, help burn fat more easily, help rejuvenate our aging brains and even promote healthy sperm function.
L-carnitine is critical for energy production in every cell of your body. It carries fat, in the form of fatty acids, to the mitochondrial inner membrane where energy is produced. Without L-carnitine, the normal burning of fat cannot take place.
In the brain and nervous tissues, acetyl L-carnitine is important in energy production, but is more importantly a precursor to acetylcholine. This powerful neurotransmitter plays a vital role in maintaining healthy brain function, memory and mood as we age.
