L-carnitine is made in the human brain, liver, and kidneys. It is important for heart and brain function, muscle movement, and many other body processes. L-carnitine helps the body turn fat into energy. It transports long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondria so they can be oxidized ("burned") to produce energy. It also transports the toxic compounds generated out of this cellular organelle to block their accumulation. Not only does this decrease the amount of fat that your body stores, but it also helps reduce visceral belly fat, the kind that surrounds your vital organs and potentially leads to fatty liver disease and other serious health conditions.
I Herb it's one of the only places I can find L-Carnitine 250 mg. It's easy to find the 500 mg, but that's too much for me. I have MS and I take this along with a few other things to help out with energy etc. this particular size and brand is also a very good price!
I have Graves Disease and I take 4x per day and it helps keep my energy up and helps with the muscle weakness that is common with Graves. Haven’t suffered any heart palpitations since starting this supplement. Wouldn’t be without them.
