SUPPORT FAT-LOSS AND IMPROVE PERFORMANCE


CARNITINE OVERVIEW

L-Carnitine, synthesized in the body from the amino acids lysine and methionine, is found in nearly all cells of the body. L-Carnitine works by helping to convert fatty acids into fuel your body can use for energy. Taking a Carnitine supplement will help your overall goal of burning fat, and it may improve your physical and mental performance. May help:

  • Promote fat burning
  • Enchance workout performance
  • Improves mental performance
  • Maintain healthy cholesterol levels
  • Improves Cardiovascular fitness

L-CARNITINE AND ACETYL L-CARNITINE IN-DEPTH

L-Carnitine, synthesized in the body from the amino acids lysine and methionine, is found in nearly all cells of the body. Its name is derived from the Latin carnus or flesh, as the compound was isolated from meat. L-Carnitine plays a critical role in energy production. L-Carnitine transports long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondria so they can be oxidized (\"burned\") to produce energy. L-Carnitine supplementation promotes fat burning and increase performance. L-Carnitine essential for the integrity and function of the cell, protects cell membrane, reduces liver fat accumulation and increases the antioxidant capacity of vitamin C and vitamin E.

Acetyl L-Carnitine is an acetylated form of L-carnitine that is absorbed by the gastrointestinal tract, enters cells and crosses the blood-brain barrier more readily than un-acetylated L-Carnitine, and is therefore more suitable as a nutritional supplement. Acetyl L-Carnitine has some similar functions as L-Carnitine, such as being involved in the metabolism of food into energy. Without Carnitine, fatty acids cannot easily enter into mitochondria. The acetyl group of Acetyl l-Carnitine is used to form acetyl-CoA, the most important intermediary in the generation of energy from amino acids, fats, and carbohydrates, and is also used to make the important brain chemical acetylcholine. Acetyl L-carnitine may improve depression and may have neuroprotective activity. It may also have cardioprotective activity and may beneficially affect cardiac function. It may enhance sperm motiliy, have cytoprotective, antioxidant and anti-apoptotic activity. Other uses for acetyl-L-carnitine include the treatment of Parkinson\'s disease, stroke, and Peyronie\'s disease.


L-CARNITINE AND ALC MAY PROMOTE FAT BURNING

L-Carnitine supplementation promotes fat burning. Carnitine is a natural substance important to the transport of fat into the mitochondria where it is "burnt" for energy. Carnitine is also important in removing the biochemical "ashes" remaining after the fat is metabolized to energy. Studies have shown, according to the meta-analysis of the University of Maryland, that supplementing with L-Carnitine can reduce fat mass. In a recently published report, observed an increase in fatty acid oxidation after L-Carnitine supplementation of 3 grams per day.

 

L-CARNITINE AND ALC IMPROVE SEXUAL FUNCTIONS

L-Carnitine supplementation can improve male erectile dysfunction and fertility. Studies suggest that sperm count, motility, and maturation are related to epididymal-free carnitine concentrations. A deficiency in L-Carnitine causes low sperm counts, derangement of sperm metabolism leading to infertility. Supplementation with L-Carnitine can improve sperm quality and/or quantity in testes. These benefits are possibly due to increased mitochondrial fatty acid oxidation resulting in improvement in motility of epididymal sperm. In addition, studies have shown that L-Carnitine supplementation can increase in the number of androgen receptors in the muscle.

 

L-CARNITINE SUPPORT CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM

Studies suggest that the body's cardiovascular system can greatly benefit from L-Carnitine supplementation. Carnitine is needed by muscles including the heart muscle to utilize fat for energy. There are a variety of published studies that suggest L-Carnitine is useful in increasing the heart's output and improving it's functioning, as well as stimulating the heart's energy supply and supporting cardiac performance.

 

L-CARNITINE AND ALC DELAY AGE-RELATED MITOCHONDRIAL DECAY AND MEMORY LOSS

L-Carnitine supplementation can revert the age-related mitochondrial decay, and there are some possible benefits of L-Carnitine in treating Alzeimer's sufferers and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). A decline in mitochondrial function is thought to be major contributor to the aging process. Tissue L-Carnitine levels also decline with age. Studies shown that this decay can be reversed by supplementation with L-Carnitine. L-Carnitine may also be effective in the treatment of mild cognitive impairment and mild Alzheimer's disease, as suggested by a recent meta-analysis of 21 double-blind clinical trials.

 

L-CARNITINE AND ALC MAY REDUCE CHOLESTEROL LEVELS

L-Carnitine supplementation can reduce serum total cholesterol and oxidized LDL cholesterol levels. In addition L-Carnitine supplementation may increase HDL cholesterol levels.

 

L-CARNITINE AND ALC IMRPOVES INSULIN SENSITIVITY

Supplementation with L-carnitine can improve insulin sensitivity in individuals with type 2 diabetes, as evidenced in part by its ability to decrease intramyocellular lipid levels.
