Info: 120 Veg. Capsules (500 mg)
When used as a part of a healthy post-exercise regime L-Carnitine may reduce recovery time and ensure that a trip to the gym doesn't result in having to spend a day in bed to let your body rejuvenate itself. It also helps support fat metabolism.
L-Carnitine is found in the amino acid lysine. It helps delay fatigue during physical activity and aids the body's recovery from muscle tissue damage, and so may be particularly useful to take as an adjunct to exercising, to help rejuvenate muscles as well as reduce the effects of oxidative stress caused by exercise.

500 mg L-Carnitine (Tartrate)
