L-Carnitine is an amino acid that helps transport long chain fatty acids. Symptoms of carnitine deficiency include progressive muscle weakness and sever hypoglycemia. Carnitine is not found in vegetable foods but is mostly found in animal muscle tissue.
L-Carnitine is synthesized in the liver if there is enough vitamin C, B1, B6, iron, and at least two amino acids. The body uses this to improve fat metabolism and reduce blood triglycerides. A shortage can cause fat to be deposited in the muscle tissues, heart and liver.
Sometimes people go on crash weight-loss diets and their lack of proper nutrition causes a shortage of L-Carnitine in the body. No matter how hard they try, the fat keeps on staying or even gaining, for no apparent reason. Well, we have one reason here, for without adequate nutrition, the body cannot remove and burn fat in the body.
L-Carnitine help the body burn fat, but the result is more energy. It is also well to remember that pantothenic acid is also used in this process and a supplement should be considered to support L-Carnitine's actions in the body.
Men seem to need more L-Carnitine than women, low levels have been implicated in lack of fertility.
Deficiencies can resemble Reyes Syndrome, which may include enlargement of the liver, spleen, and the wasting of muscle tissue.
Used for: Angina, Cataracts, Cellulite, Cholesterol (low), Diabetes (Type II), Fatigue., Grave’s Disease, Heart (to strengthen), Heart Fibrillation or Palpitations, Reye’s Syndrome, Rheumatic Fever, Weight Loss (aids).
It is important to buy the best L-Carnitine available---the "DL" form can have adverse side effects. This substance should be considered as a team-member along with other nutrients sufficient for it to function as desired. So do not look upon L-Carnitine as a single answer to your weight loss, muscle or circulatory building needs.
Each amino acid has specific functions and is needed to prevent various symptoms from developing. When taking amino acids individually for healing, take them on an empty stomach to avoid competition with other amino acids for absorption. Amino acids compete with each other for entry to the brain.
