L-carnitene is an amino acid synthesized from essential amino acids, tysine and methionline in the kidneys and livers.
It’s main function is to transport ‘long chain fatty acids’ such as glucose, fats, carbohydrates and proteins, especially from the inter membrane space of the carbohydrates and fats storage areas essentially accumulated from the food we eat and converts it into energy.
In the mitochondria is where fats and carbohydrates is being converted into energy via a process called ‘beta oxidation’ with the help of L-Carnitine which is also responsible for improving oxygen utilization and energy production by the heart muscle. Thus, L-Carnitine the transporter of fat is needed as well for the removal of products waste or toxins produced from the mitochondria during energy production, enables them to be eliminated from the body
L-Carnitene increases our body metabolic rate and is able to convert fats and carbohydrates from our body into energy, a form of protein cocarboxylase and if unused will be exereted via the urine. For atheletes and sportman, the protein will help to convert fats into muscles mass during activities, therefore L-Carnitene is an essential amino acid for the bodybuilders who wish to have a well built physique naturally.
