Carnitine transports fat into cells to be used for fuel. Research demonstrates benefits in exercise performance, memory and learning, cardiovascular health, and metabolic function.
Carnitine serves as a cofactor for the metabolism of fats, helping to transport them into the mitochondria where they produce energy. If carnitine is not present, fatty acids canÕt be used as a fuel source in the body. Impaired fat metabolism leads to increased risk of inflammation-related chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and obesity.
Acetyl L-Carnitine has neuroprotective properties, supporting cerebral blood flow and energy metabolism in the brain. Adding the acetyl group to carnitine allows for biosynthesis of acetylcholine, the most abundant neurotransmitter involved in communication between nerves and muscle. Acetyl l-carnitine may improve mood, support memory, and help reduce cognitive decline that occurs with aging.
Propionyl L-Carnitine displays pain relieving and antirheumatic properties, and may benefit heart health. It promotes heart rhythm, blood flow, and lowers blood lipid levels that are a risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Propionyl l-carnitine blocks the production of inflammatory biochemicals and has gut protective properties, making it a possible treatment for ulcerative colitis.
Carnitine Tartrate is often used by athletes to support exercise performance by improving work capacity and running speed. It lowers RPE, improves exercise tolerance, and may help delay the point at which an athlete Òfeels the burnÓ from lactic acid buildup in the muscles. Carnitine tartrate is well suited for improving exercise recovery by upregulating cells involved in protein synthesis and improving sensitivity of both androgen and insulin receptors. Carnitine tartrate may be especially effective among athletes consuming a lower-carbohydrate diet who are getting a higher proportion of their energy from fats.
Green Tea Leaf Extract provides anti-inflammatory EGCG catechins that have been shown to improve fat burning and metabolism. Combining green tea with L-carnitine has therapeutic metabolic benefits, improving how the body handles fat, making them a good combination for fighting obesity, hyperlipidemia, and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
Acetyl L-Tyrosine increases brain dopamine and epinephrine levels to prolong exercise tolerance at high intensities. Acetyl l-tyrosine is well suited for trying to lose body fat by helping with appetite regulation. It may also support cognitive performance and mood, especially during high-stress times.
Take 3-6 capsules per day or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.
