L-Carnitine and Your Metabolism Posted on March 23, 2016 by , 0 comments
Our blog series continues with profiles of each ingredient found in Body Regime. This week, L-Carnitine, the amazing, do-it-all amino acid, is up.
L-Carnitine is an amino acid produced naturally by the body. Amino acids are protein building blocks that are essential to the health and function of numerous systems throughout the body. Specifically, L-Carnitine helps the body produce energy and is principally important for heart, brain, and muscle function.
The Source and history:
L-Carnitine was first sourced in 1905 from lysine, another amino acid. Its name comes from the fact that it was first derived from meat (as in, carnine). Many strict vegetarians that are found to have low levels of L-Carnitine in their blood are prescribed the amino acid in supplement form. Additional research is currently being conducted to determine how L-Carnitine supplementation can help support cardio health as well as cognitive health.
In 2015, a study found that women who took L-Carnitine as a supplement for twelve weeks experienced some degree of change in weight. Additional studies have found that L-Carnitine helps to support the metabolism, which in turn helps promote healthy weight management.
A healthy metabolism is really only one part of the weight management puzzle. Body Regime™ combines L-Carnitine into its complex, whole health weight management supplement to help support the body’s natural metabolism and overall muscle health. When combined with other key ingredients that support appetite and mood, weight management goals are better understood and supported.*
