Info: 60 Veg. Capsules
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. Even though our body can produce it naturally, and it is also found in some foods (with the highest concentration being in red meat), those who may benefit from L-Carnitine supplementation include individuals who are deficient in its intake, such as strict vegans and vegetarians, or those seeking help for their weight loss goals. This is a vegetarian/vegan product.
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 of it here to help ensure that it maintains stability and full potency.
