L-Carnitine is a non-essential amino acid that helps to maintain overall good health by facilitating the transfer of fatty acid groups into the mitochondrial membrane for cellular energy production.* It naturally occurs in red meat and other animal source foods, but we recommend supplementation to obtain optimal levels of this excellent amino acid. L-Carnitine is classified as an amino acid, although it is not an amino acid in the classic sense. Amino acids are generally used by the body for protein synthesis and/or as a neurotransmitter. Carnitine (actually more closely related to the B vitamins) is primarily used to facilitate the transport of long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondria of cells for energy production.* This process helps to support muscular energy by burning fat.* Natural Carnitine is found primarily in red meats, so vegetarians may need to supplement to ensure healthy levels in their bodies. Our Carnitine is a synthetic product manufactured in a laboratory using bacterial synthesis, and is considered vegetarian due to the absence of any animal sources or by-products.
