Carnitine is an amino acid that contributes to heart, muscle, and brain function. It acts as an antioxidant in the body, removing harmful free radicals that accelerate signs of aging and disease. Carnitine also helps the body convert fat into energy and may improve athletic performance.
How to Take L-Carnitine
As a dietary supplement, take 500mg (scant 3/16 tsp) one to four times per day, or as directed by physician.
This supplement dissolves easily in water and has a mild or bland taste. It can be mixed with water, juice, or the preworkout beverage of your choice. Taking carnitine with GABA, CLA and Coenzyme Q10 may enhance its benefits.
When carnitine burns fat, it increases levels of ATP, a substance that provides energy for your body. High-intensity workouts lasting only 10 minutes can decrease carnitine levels by about 40%, which could make you feel tapped out mid-set. Supplementing with carnitine, however, may give you the energy you need to work out longer and harder.
Delay Muscle Fatigue & Soreness
Carnitine has been shown to reduce levels of lactic acid, a substance responsible for that burn you feel in your muscles when you're on your last few reps. Muscle burn means you're working to your max (which is what gives you results), but it also leads to fatigue. Taking carnitine before you hit the gym may reduce muscle fatigue and post-workout soreness.
Improve Heart Health & Circulation
Early studies suggest carnitine could have a beneficial effect on heart health. Researchers believe it may reduce fatty buildup in the arteries and encourage healthy cardiovascular function by promoting energy metabolism in the heart.
