L-Carnitine Base Powder
Carnitine is actually used as a generic name for several different compounds containing Carnitine. For example, D-Carnitine is the biologically inactive form of Carnitine, while L-Carnitine is the only form that is actually active. Thus, taking D-Carnitine can cause interference with the supplementation of L-Carnitine, which can then cause further problems.
Carnitine is considered conditionally essential, meaning that there are certain conditions a person can undergo which might make supplementation or dietary changes necessary to keep up Carnitine levels. However, on an average day, Carnitine will not need to be supplemented. In order for the body to manufacture Carnitine at acceptable levels, it needs to be fed with good levels of Vitamin B1, Vitamin B6, Vitamin C, Iron, Methionine, Niacin, and Lysine. All of these must be in order for Carnitine to be created. Carnitine can then go on to make Vitamin C and E more effective. Creatine is not only able to transfer fatty acids into the cells so that they can be converted into energy; but as it passes through cells, it is able to take toxins out with it and dispose of them, by way of the liver and kidneys. This process makes Creatine an efficient facilitator to the body's disposal system.
L-Carnitine is generally found in meats. While fruits and vegetables do have trace amounts, the greatest amount is found in meat.
Usually the body can make its own Carnitine without interruption. However, some may have conditions or deficiencies which cause them to be lacking in sufficient Creatine; and for these people, supplementation may be necessary. Acetyl-L-Carnitine is available to the public without a prescription. Not only does it provide the body with Carnitine, but also with the acetyl groups which help to eventually create Acetylcholine.
Health Benefits Provided by L-Carnitine
L-Carnitine is necessary for the oxidation of fatty acids, which can eventually help people taking Carnitine to lose fat. Fatty acids are one of the main sources of energy for the body and it would be impossible for them to penetrate the cell membrane where they are eventually turned into energy, without the presence of Carnitine.
