L-Carnitine is an amino acid that occurs naturally within the body. It can be produced out of the amino acids Lysine and Methionine. It is also found in a lot of our high-quality meat sources as well.
L-Carnitine has many proposed benefits, however the most common one is that people show interest in is for fat loss and cognitive function. L-Carnitine aids in fat metabolism by being the main contributor — along with water — that is responsible for freeing up brown fatty acids and transporting them through the mitochondrial wall. Once they pass through the mitochondria, they are then readily available to be used for energy production.
The recommended dosage of L-Carnitine is anywhere between 1000mg – 3000mg. We believe that you can safely take up to 10,000mg of L-Carnitine per day. We generally recommend 6000mg per day, split up into 2 doses of 3000mg per day.
