Carnitine is considered conditionally essential, meaning that there are certain conditions a person can undergo which might make supplementation or dietary changes necessary to keep up Carnitine levels.
L-Carnitine is necessary for the oxidation of fatty acids, which can eventually aid in fat loss. Fatty acids are one of the main sources of energy for the body and it would be impossible for them to penetrate the cell membrane without the presence of Carnitine. Carnitine plays a critical role in the production of muscular energy, particularly during periods of high-intensity exercise. L-Carnitine Base is highly bioavailable.
It is also used to stave off the effects of the maturing process. The body’s production of carnitine in cellular tissue declines a we get older. A dietary supplement supports the continued integrity of cells and protects the mitochondrial membrane.
Studies of carnitine supplement use show support for improved mental function and reduced mental deterioration in adults with mild cognitive impairment. Studies have also shown carnitine to be useful in supporting heart muscle and the cardiovascular system as well as providing oxygen-rich blood to peripheral arteries.
