Carnitine

Carnitine (N-Acetyl-L-Carntine) is an amino acid that is naturally produced in the body.

One of its main functions is the transfer of fat to energy by transporting long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondria. Furthermore, it has been shown to reduce the effects of aging and disease on mitochondria.

Carnitine has recently received considerable medical attention as a result of its favourable effects in cardiovascular disease. A recent study by the Mayo Clinic concluded: ”Compared with placebo or control, L-carnitine is associated with a 27% reduction in all-cause mortality, a 65% reduction in VAs , and a 40% reduction in anginal symptoms in patients experiencing an acute myocardial infarction. Further study with large randomized controlled trials of this inexpensive and safe therapy in the modern era is warranted” (1).
