Info: 60 Veg. Capsules
Even though our body can produce some L-Carnitine naturally, and it's found in some foods (particularly red meat), those who may benefit most from L-Carnitine supplementation include individuals who are deficient in its intake, including vegans and vegetarians, or those seeking nutritional support for their weight loss goals.
Fueling your body with all the proper nutrients, and in the correct amounts, is key for achieving and maintaining a healthy body weight. L-Carnitine is an amino acid that is naturally produced in the body and is found abundantly in heart, muscle, and liver tissue, where it helps transfer long-chain fatty acids across mitochondrial membranes to enhance the cellular production of energy and thereby contribute to overall good health.
Pure L-Carnitine is an amino acid that normally attracts water which can cause it to deteriorate rapidly. Protocol for Life Balance uses a tartrate form to help ensure that it maintains stability and full potency.
