L-Carnitine is a naturally occurring amino acid that is found in nearly all cells of the body and helps promote the healthy aging and function of mitochondria, while increasing the mitochondria's potential to burn fat.
L-Carnitine helps support the body's ability to transport fat, particularly long-chain fatty acids, into the mitochondria of cells. Once there, they can be oxidized—used as fuel—to generate adenosine triphosphate, or ATP. L-Carnitine does this cellular work both when you exercise and rest, but research suggests that it is especially effective during intense exercise.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO TAKE L-CARNITINE? WHAT IS THE PROPER WAY TO TAKE IT?
Research has shown that it is beneficial to take L-Carnitine with carbohydrates in order to facilitate proper uptake. With this being said, consume a serving of L-Carnitine 1500 with 20-30g of carbohydrates and ideally 20-30g protein to help facilitate proper uptake into the muscle cell. Taking this with breakfast or your pre-training meal are perfect times to use L-Carnitine for maximum benefit.
CAN I STACK L-CARNITINE WITH MY FAT BURNER?
Absolutely! L-Carnitine is stimulant-free and is a complimentary supplement to use with your favorite fat burner, such as DNPX® or Vanish® to help you reach your goals faster and increase training performance.
