L-carnitine is a free form amino acid which provides a major source of energy for muscles. It increases the use of fat as an energy source, thus preventing fatty buildup in the heart, liver, and skeletal muscles.  L-Carnitine reduces health risks posed by poor fat metabolism associated with diabetes.  It lessens the risk of heart disease, by lowering blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels. L-Carnitine is ideal for anyone looking for an easy-to-consume source of carnitine that can be taken throughout the day.
