L-Carnitine is a non-essential amino acid that is abundant in heart, muscle and liver tissues. It helps to maintain metabolic health by facilitating the transfer of long-chain fatty acids across the mitochondrial membrane for cellular energy production. In addition, it thereby assists the body in using fat for energy. It naturally occurs in red meat and other animal source foods, but some people may have an increased need for dietary L-Carnitine due to high fat and vegetarian diets. Clinical studies indicate that L-Carnitine may promote exercise performance and recovery.
As a dietary supplement, take 1 capsule 1 to 3 times daily with or without meals.

CAUTIONS AND INTERACTIONS: Mild gastrointestinal symptoms have been reported at higher levels of intake. Otherwise, L-carnitine is considered remarkably safe. L-carnitine is listed as pregnancy category B, indicating animal studies have revealed no harm to the fetus, but that no adequate studies in pregnant women have been conducted. Interactions are not common. However, L-carnitine may affect the body's reaction to the anti-arrhythmic effect of propafenone and mexiletine in patients with ischemia. Some people may have an increased need for dietary Carnitine due to high-fat diets, certain medications, genetic predisposition, and low dietary levels of the precursor amino acids lysine and methionine.
