Product Description

Size:100 Tablets

Carnitine is a water-soluble compound that is similar to a vitamin in its behaviour. Working as part of the body's enzyme complex, Carnitine supports the body to turn fat into energy. L-Carnitine, is found naturally in red meats and dairy products, making this supplement a nutritious compliment for those with a limited intake of these particular foods. L-Carnitine is a highly regarded part of the Carnitine complex, valued for its potential to support a healthy body and cognitive function. When combined with a healthy diet and a fit body, L-Carnitine can be a valuable dietary supplement to maintain all-over health and wellbeing.

It looks as if some are hoping for the eureka effect which is unlikely to occur as the compound is only an amino acid and for a single amino acid to be effective it requires to be taken on an empty stomach otherwise the body utilises it for other purposes. The late Dr Hans Nieper and his colleagues found that l-carnitine supported the heart by releasing more energy to it; apparently it helps at preventing heart degeneration. Dr Nieper also combined this with magnesium orotate and vitamin B1 (brewer's yeast may be better) on treating his patients. It is also known to dramatically reduce cholesterol deposits and to clean fatty acid deposits from the heart (see p78-79 The Curious Man). CO-Q10, serrapeptase, and hawthorn extract, act similarly. Anyone suffering from cardiac problems should ramp-down on vegetable oils in their diet which are potent immune suppressors and return to saturated fats which, contrary to the hype, are a buffer against ill health.

Anyone on a diet and tempted, during the first few days to indulge in something to eat, should take l-carnitine which has a beneficial effect on the brain chemistry and quells the desire (Dr Atkin). It worked for me.

I usually have a tub of l-carnitine at home and now in the process of replenishing the supply.

As you really do need an empty stomach and a clear hour between taking these and eating I have them first thing in the morning before breakfast. Would have been a 5 star but the tablets are big - a fair old swallow just after you've woken up.

My nine year old sons Neurologist recommend he take this supplement to treat his migraines, combined with CoQ10, magnesium and B2.

Apparently research shows that some patients who suffer from migraines can be caused by a mitochondrial dysfunction, and these supplements have been proven to help patients.

Whilst it hasn't prevented my sons migraines, (in some research it eradicated them completely) it has definitely reduced the frequency, and after three months of taking them, he has a significant amount of more energy, better concentration, and is generally brighter and happier.

The only downside about this supplement is the size of it. It is one of the biggest out there and not as easy to swallow as a capsule.

I bought this L-Carnitine after a Twitter recommendation from someone who found that 3mg of L-Carnitine gave very good results for M.E./CFS. He said it helped a lot with fatigue so I thought I'd give it a go. I take a lot of medication so thought I would start off with just one 500mg tablet a day, I didn't notice any difference after a couple of weeks so now I am taking two a day, separated, one before lunch, and one before tea. I am pretty sure I have less fatigue as I have been pretty busy lately (for me) and I haven't been having as many rests as I should have but I haven't crashed yet like I would have, I have managed to keep going. I probably will increase to three tablets a day soon to see if it helps even more as this does seem to help with energy levels.

These are a must have for weight loss and energy boost. They lift my mood as well I'm always having positive thoughts and a lively mood unlike before taking taking them, you have to give them a week or two to start feeling the effects. I've lost a lot weight in two months after having my baby

This item was so reasonably priced compared to the big Health Food Stores I was able to purchase two bottles for a mere fraction of what one bottle would have cost in the high street - still think they were incorrectly priced bur incredibly impressed.

L-Carnitine is found in meat and to a much lesser amount in Seafood and Poultry.
I am not a meat eater and I exercise regularly and L- Carnitine speeds up recovery from exercise stress, supports exercise performance and is essential for normal heart function but as I said above only take in moderation I just take one tablet a day 500mg in the morning before I exercise.
