L-carnitine is a non-essential amino acid-like compound, which means it is naturally produced in the body. Its main function is to help the body produce energy. It also plays an important role in muscle movement and the normal functioning of the brain and heart.
Benefits of L-carnitine
1. Weight loss
L-carnitine helps your body produce energy by using the body's fat stores, allowing you to exercise for longer and ultimately aid in fat loss. Taking it daily has been proven to increase blood and muscle concentrations of this amino acid-like compound, improving fat metabolism resulting in increased muscle concentrations.
2. Better performance and recovery
Given its fat-burning properties, L-carnitine optimizes how your body uses fat for fuel, so you can exercise for longer.
It is clear that L-carnitine supplementation plays an important role in recovery from strenuous exercise. This leads to a reduction in several features of metabolic stress and muscle pain seen in many ways in studies.
Acetyl-L-carnitine promotes the vitality of the nervous system, heart and blood vessels, muscles, pancreas and liver.
Supplements, not powders
Nowadays you see a lot of sports supplements in the form of powders. There is an important reason why we choose to mainly use capsules and that is that it is much nicer to swallow a capsule than having a bite of powder in your mouth, which you then have to wash down with water.
So no problems with bad tastes or a dry mouth, but just as we say; Bite, swallow, go!
