L-Carnitine - The Weight Loss Energy Nutrient
Carnitine plays a fundamental role in energy production and releases energy from fat.
Co-Enzyme Q10 and L Carnitine help support a healthy heart and vascular function. L-Carnitine is central to the body's ability to turn fat into energy, and anytime you are trying to get a leaner physique, lower cholesterol, or lose weight, that's exactly what you want to do: turn fat into energy. There is no more natural way to support that process than with L Carnitine.
Carnitine is a vitamin-like nutrient that occurs naturally in the body but is found only in appreciable amounts in red meat. Its central role in helping cells make more energy, its lack of toxicity and its wide range of benefits have made it a remarkable nutrient. People feel such an improved state of over-all wellness and a natural increase in energy when they increase their intake of l -Carnitine. Carnitine deficiency is more common than many people think, and can lead to such problems as overweight, fatigue, elevated triglycerides, and heart problems.
Vegetarians often consume no L Carnitine in their diet, because L Carnitine is found predominantly only in foods of animal origin, such as red meat and milk; Fruits, vegetables, nuts and grains contain virtually none. Vegetarians feel much better when they supplement with L Carnitine.
CARNITINE IS A POPULAR NUTRIENT WITH ATHLETES
L - Carnitine enhances aerobic performance in elite athletes, allowing athletes to exercise longer without fatigue. Trained runners give 2 grams of L Carnitine per day increased their peak running speed by a remarkable 5.7 percent. Older adults also benefit greatly from L Carnitine during exercise. Carnitine levels decline with age, and fatty acids can accumulate that can make the energy pathways of the cell sluggish. For these and many other reasons, L Carnitine is a must supplement for those over 40 who want to maximize their energy and exercise endurance.
CARNITINE IS ALSO A TREMENDOUS HEART HELPER
The heart gets two thirds of its energy from burning fat, and L Carnitine helps fuel this cardiac engine. It also helps to keep coronary arteries clear by raising HDL cholesterol, the protective cholesterol. It also lowers high triglycerides remarkably. This is important, because for optimal health, we should keep our triglycerides below 75.
FOR WEIGHT LOSS AND GENERAL IMMUNE ENHANCEMENT
A recent study showed the powerful advantage of combining L Carnitine with a weight loss program. For subjects who ate a healthy diet and got moderate exercise for twelve weeks, the average weight loss was one pound. For those who added two grams of L Carnitine per day to the same regime, weight loss averaged eleven pounds. By simply adding 2,000 mg of L Carnitine from L Carnitine tartrate weight loss increased eleven fold (11 lbs. in the L Carnitine group versus 1 pound in the non-L Carnitine group). Why does L Carnitine have this effect? Carnitine is the forklift that takes fat to the fat incinerators in our cells called mitochondria. Unless fat makes it into the mitochondria, you can't burn it off no matter what you do and no matter how well you diet. Once fat is inside the mitochondria, it is magically transformed into energy. It's like turning bricks into gold.
Take L carnitine, beginning with 500 mg, preferably on an empty stomach in the morning before breakfast. Carnitine should not be taken before bed, as it can increase energy levels and may prevent sleep. Carnitine is not a stimulant, but gives an even, natural energy by enhancing the body's own energy producing processes. Femhealth's L Carnitine complex contains 250 mg of pure amino acid, L Carnitine, plus 250 mg of herb complex brindall berry, gymnema sylvestre and uva ursi.
