Carnitine is often referred to as the heart amino, as it improves angina, heart function, and exercise tolerance in people with coronary artery disease and heart failure.
A non-essential amino acid, Carnitine is synthesized in the liver and kidneys, and concentrated in the body’s most metabolically active organs: the brain, heart, and muscles. Its primary job is to transport fatty acids into the mitochondria, where they’re burned for energy.
Athletes discovered Carnitine is a safe, inexpensive supplement that boosts energy and endurance, reduces fatigue, enhances muscle gain and even cognitive function. As we age, natural Carnitine production declines, and levels are also depleted by kidney and liver disease, epilepsy drugs with valproic acid, and cancer.
Fatigue, loss of muscle mass, increased body fat, mental and physical slowdown are all signs of declining mitochondrial function (where energy is produced in our cells). Young people produce all the Carnitine they need, but if you are experiencing any of these signs of aging, try Carnitine for increased energy production - it's like adding gasoline to a fire!
