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 body fat percentage.
Most carnitine is found in heart and muscle cells, and breaks down fat deposits to be used as energy in movement. This is why it´s so important in exercise. Carnitine also increases energy levels, helps reduce body fat tissue, promotes oxygen uptake and energy production.
Carnitine acts as a transporter or shuttle system for long-chain fatty acids across the mitochondrial membrane to increase energy production through lipid breakdown.
For sports performance, the positive benefits of carnitine supplementation are tremendous. Performance depends on the body’s ability to produce energy and since fat is the main source of energy in muscle, it means that if you can increase fat oxidation, your body will increase energy levels, as well as reduce body fat.
In athletes, carnitine significantly increases oxygen uptake and energy production. Supplements administered before physical exertion reduce the formation of lactic acid (muscle aches). They also help against muscle fatigue, by minimising protein losses during prolonged exercise.
