Carnitine is a naturally occurring amino acid metabolized from Lysine and Methionine (with Vitamins B-6 and C) and synthesized in the liver and kidneys. The food source is meat and milk and it is absent in strict vegetarian diets. Carnitine is a necessary component of heart and skeletal muscle tissue. It is involved in lipid metabolism, and it functions to transport fatty acids across the inner mitochondrial membranes. This amino acid is also essential for brain cells and healthy neurological function, and it promotes longevity by helping to provide cells with the necessary energy to function. Carnitine deficiencies are common, and are evident in two types of conditions. Those, in which Myopathy is involved, note Carnitine deficiencies in muscles, whereas systemic deficiencies are results of long term diseases, such as renal failure, and Reye's syndrome. Low levels of Carnitine have been also noted in patients with diabetes, myocardial ischemia, cancer and alcoholism. There are different types of Carnitine. Elemental (active) L-Carnitine Fumarate has an extra molecule of fumaric acid, that helps maintain Krebs' Cycle function, and Acetyl-Carnitine crosses the blood brain barrier quickly and aids in neurological function. Carnitine supplementation results in increased plasma and tissue levels of Carnitine.

Each capsule contains:

300 mg total active L-Carnitine including: L-Carnitine Fumarate - 165 mg (Elemental); Acetyl-Carnitine 135 mg (Elemental).

DIRECTIONS: 1-2 Capsules a day or as needed.
