Infinite Labs® Final Form® combines L-carnitine, conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), and raspberry ketones to provide bodybuilders and athletes a comprehensive supplement that incorporates thermogenic and fat burning properties to support an overall healthy body composition and promote optimal recovery.*
L-carnitine is synthesized from the amino acids lysine and methionine and is accountable for the transport of fatty acids from the cytosol into the mitochondria to be oxidized for energy. Research has suggested that L-carnitine supplementation increases fat utilization and spares muscle glycogen, thus promoting performance enhancements. Several studies have also suggested that L-carnitine may promote recovery from exercise by enhancing blood flow regulation via an enhanced vasodilatory effect that reduces the magnitude of exercise-induced hypoxia. Decreases in pain and muscle damage, decreases in markers of metabolic stress, and enhanced recovery have been demonstrated following high-intensity resistance exercise in individuals who supplemented with L-carnitine.*
Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) is essentially a fatty acid that has been suggested to promote fat loss, decrease catabolism, increase bone density, promote immune system functioning and serve as an antiatherogenic and anticarcinogenic agent. Research has advocated CLA supplementation and its potential to improve the ratio of lean body mass to fat by enhancing insulin sensitivity, thereby allowing fatty acids and glucose to pass more easily through muscle-cell membranes and away from fat tissue.*
Raspberry ketones are a natural phenol, organic compound responsible for creating the aroma in red raspberries. Raspberry ketones have been suggested to boost metabolic functioning and promote lipid utilization. The primary mechanism of action is a result of their ability to manipulate the enzyme lipase. Lipase facilitates the breakdown of fat cells, so the increase in lipase activity due to raspberry ketones results in a greater amount of fat cells being broken down and burned as fuel during training sessions and everyday activities.*
