The Benefits of L-Carnitine Supplementation

Most people are familiar with the basic premise of amino acids - they're the building blocks of protein. What many people don't realize, however, is that there are essential and non-essential amino acids. Essential amino acids cannot be produced by the body and must be obtained through diet or supplementation, while non-essential amino acids can be produced by the body. L-carnitine is a non-essential amino acid that plays an important role in overall health and well-being. Let's take a closer look at some of the benefits of L-carnitine supplementation.

Facilitates Fat Metabolism*

L-carnitine is responsible for transporting long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondria - the powerhouses of cells - for energy production.* This process is essential for maintaining a healthy weight, as it helps the body to burn fat more efficiently.* In addition, L-carnitine has been shown to reduce exercise-induced muscular damage and increase recovery time after exercise.*

Supports Heart Health*

The heart is a muscle, and like all muscles, it requires energy to function properly. Because L-carnitine plays a role in energy production, it stands to reason that it would also support heart health.* In fact, studies have shown that L-carnitine supplementation can help to improve heart function in people with congestive heart failure.*

Enhances Brain Function*

L-carnitine has also been shown to enhance brain function.* One study found that L-carnitine improved cognitive function in elderly adults with age-related cognitive decline.* Another study found that L-carnitine supplementation improved memory and attention in children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).*

Overall, L-carnitine is an important amino acid that offers numerous health benefits. If you're not getting enough L-carnitine through your diet, consider supplementing with NOW® L-Carnitine.
