L-Carnitine is a non-essential amino acid that assists with the transport of long-chain fatty acids into cells and helps them be utilized as energy. This helps support a healthy environment for lean muscle growth and maintenance, contributing to a leaner physique. Additionally, L-Carnitine has a variety of other health benefits and since it is stimulant-free, it is ideal to be part of any supplement stack.†
WHAT IS L-CARNITINE?
L-carnitine is a naturally occurring amino acid that is found in nearly all cells of the body. It assists with alleviating the effects of aging and disease on mitochondria, while increasing the mitochondria’s potential to burn fat.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF USING L-CARNITINE?
L-carnitine helps to transport fat, particularly long-chain fatty acids, into the mitochondria of cells. Once there, they can be oxidized—used as fuel—to generate adenosine triphosphate, or ATP. L-carnitine does this cellular work both when you exercise and rest, but research confirms that it is especially effective during intense exercise.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO TAKE L-CARNITINE? WHAT IS THE PROPER WAY TO TAKE IT?
Studies have supported that it is critical to take l-carnitine with carbohydrates in order to ensure proper uptake. With this being said, consume a serving of L-Carnitine with 20-30g of carbohydrates and ideally 20-30g protein for ensuring proper uptake into the muscle cell. Taking this with breakfast or your pre-training meal are perfect times to use L-carnitine for maximum benefit.
CAN I STACK L-CARNITINE WITH MY FAT BURNER?
Absolutely! L-Carnitine is a naturally occurring amino acid that works to help transport fat, particularly long-chain fatty acids, into the mitochondria of cells. Once there, they can be oxidized (used as fuel). It is stimulant-free and is a complimentary supplement to use with your favorite fat Burner such as DNPX or Vanish that can help you reach your goals faster as well as increase training performance!
