Description

L-Carnitine supplements from Pharma Nord contain the only biologically active form of carnitine. Carnitine is produced in the liver and kidneys, but levels are depleted by intense physical activity. Carnitine is present in many foods and high concentrations can be found in red meats, such as beef or lamb. In comparison, there is little or no carnitine in white meats and vegetables, so vegetarians are at risk of deficiency. Carnitine is an amino acid-like substance that is synthesized in the body from the amino acid lysine. Carnitine is important in the metabolism of fat and energy production within the body, and helps maintain healthy heart, skeletal muscle and liver function. Carnitine supplements are available in several chemical forms- only the L-form of carnitine is biologically active (the D-form is inactive). Carnitine levels are reduced by a high fat diet, certain drugs (e.g. valproic acid antibiotics) or metabolic stress. Carnitine is responsible for the transport of long chain fatty acids into mitochondria, where energy is produced within cells. Carnitine acts in synergy with coenzyme Q10 in the metabolism of fatty acids during energy production. Carnitine is required for the healthy function of heart and skeletal muscle, since these tissues depend in particular on fatty acid oxidation as a source of energy.

Key Features

Manufactured to pharmaceutical standards. Contains 250 mg of L-Carnitine, the only biologically active form. Perfectly balanced to give optimum absorption, as it contains L-Carnitine, which closely resembles the amino acid in the body. The D form of Carnitine in some supplements may interfere with the beneficial actions of L-Carnitine.
