BioActive Nutrients L-Carnitine Description
BioActive Nutrients L-carnitine may be beneficial for the following conditions:
- Intermittent claudication (lack of blood flow to the legs)
- Cardiac ischemia (poor blood flow to the heart)
- Congestive Heart Failure
- End stage renal disease
- Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder
- Chronic Fatigue
Even though meat, fish, poultry and milk are the best sources of L-carnitine, there are generally insufficient amounts in the body. L-carnitine is an important nutrient for replenishing carnitine when levels of fatty acid transport are low and for the production of energy by carrying fatty acids into the cell's mitochondria to be burned. It also helps get rid of an overabundance of toxins by pushing them out of the cell.
Sufficient amounts of carnitine can keep the energy-producing components of the cell from deteriorating, keeping the mitochondria functioning properly. When the mitochondria continuously lacks l-carnitine it weakens and starts the aging process. A feeling of fatigue and lack of energy could mean low levels of carnitine in the body.
The body also needs the proper form of carnitine to acquire any benefits. D-carnitine, is the physiologically inactive form and is not used by humans, while L-carnitine can easily be absorbed and utilized. The kidneys play a key role in L-carnitine's utilization by maintaining the amount. Carnitine loss by the kidneys is very low, unless several conditions such as a high fat diet, high protein diets, pregnancy, and certain diseases exist. Like the kidneys, the liver synthesizes carnitine and helps direct it throughout the body into different tissues. L-carnitine becomes more abundant in tissues that use fatty acids as their primary fuel source, such as the skeletal and cardiac muscle.
