L-Carnitine 500mg60 capsulesCode 8305 / 7020
Carnitine's most important known metabolic function is to transport long chain fatty acids into the mitochondria of muscle cells where they are oxidised and burned for energy. Cardiac muscle is especially dependent upon this mechanism as an important source of metabolic energy. In addition carnitine plays a role in the production of heat (thermogenesis) of brown adipose tissue and in the regulation of glucose production (gluconeogenesis). Since carnitine primarily regulates fat burning in the body those undergoing intensive physical training often choose to supplement with this product. As with all our amino acids, Lamberts® L-Carnitine is presented in its free-form for maximum absorption. Each capsule provides a full 500mg of L-Carnitine. 1 capsule daily with water or fruit juice. An amino acid is best taken half an hour before any meal or at bedtime. Caution: Do not take if pregnant or breast feeding. Suitable for vegetarians.
