L-Carnitine 1170 is a non-essential amino acid that is synthesised from lysine, which accelerates the breakdown of fats, making it ideal for reducing the percentage of body fat. Most carnitine is found in heart and muscle cells. It breaks down fat deposits that are then used as energy in movement, which is why it is important during exercise. Carnitine also increases energy levels, helps reduce adipose tissue, and promotes oxygen consumption and energy production. Carnitine acts as a transporter or shuttle system for long-chain fatty acids across the mitochondrial membrane in order to increase energy production through lipid breakdown. For athletic performance, the positive benefits derived from carnitine supplementation are countless. Performance depends on the body’s ability to produce energy, and considering that fat is the main source of energy in the muscles, it means that if the oxidation of fat can be increased, our body will increase its energy levels, in addition to reducing corporal adipose tissue. In athletes, carnitine significantly increases oxygen uptake and energy production. Supplements that are administered before physical exertion reduce the formation of lactic acid (sore muscles). It also helps against muscle fatigue, minimising protein losses during prolonged exercise.
Burns fat, promotes physical performance, increases energy, improves oxygen absorption and strengthens the metabolism of proteins.
