It is produced by an amino acid and is found in nearly ALL cells of the body. It plays a critical role in energy production. It transports long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondria (your cells) so they can be burned to produce energy so it uses your fat for fuel. The body makes it but often for genetic or medical reasons some of us can't make enough.
Super benefits from taking it:
FAT LOSS You use and burn fat better. It has also been shown to reduce fatigue and serve as an appetite suppressant as well. It will not only help keep your body from storing fat, but it will increase your aerobic capacity to help you burn more calories.

IMMUNE SYSTEM L Carnitine serves as an antioxidant that can help prevent damage done to your healthy cells by free radicals. This can help you out when you have a cold or are dealing with various seasonal allergies and training and these are but a few reasons why you should start taking it.
