L-Carnitine is an amino acid found in high concentrations in heart and liver tissues. Primarily, L-Carnitine helps to transport fatty acids into the mitochondria, where they are converted to energy. Studies demonstrate that L-carnitine may be able to increase healthy heart muscle tissue and maintain essential enzyme activity, boost cardiovascular energy, promote recovery after exercise, and sustain healthy fat metabolism. L-Carnitine also assists carbohydrates metabolism and bolsters the oxidative phosphorylation rate, which is the final stage of energy production.

L-Carnitine works well in combination with Co-Q10, an energy cofactor and antioxidant that is found in the inner membrane of the mitochondria.

Biosint™ L-Carnitine is manufactured by the pioneer in L-Carnitine science, Sigma-Tau Industries, S.p.A. (Rome, Italy).

Suggested Use: Take 1 to 4 capsules per day, or as directed by your qualified health care consultant.
