L-carnitine is a naturally occurring compound of the two amino acids methionine and lysine. ... L-carnitine is important for burning fat in the body because it ensures that fatty acids are transported quickly.
L-carnitine has different modes of action that are important for our body:
* Transport of long chain fatty acids into the mitochondria. However, only 5% of the available L-carnitine is required for this classic function.
* Buffer function for coenzyme A. The body uses 95% of L-carnitine as a buffer reservoir for acyl compounds, which, for example, suffer from a lack of oxygen in the event of an excess.
* L-carnitine is a food supplement based on L-carnitine tartrate, a stable form of L-carnitine that provides 500 mg of L-carnitine in its free and natural form.
Effect of L-carnitine on the heart and in heart diseases:
The heart is the L-carnitine richest body organ of all. L-carnitine is needed by the heart to produce energy from fatty acids and to protect fat cells from the toxic effects of long-chain acyl-CoA compounds.
The heart is one of the main target organs of L-carnitine.
L-carnitine is extremely safe and can be given for practically any type of heart disease and degree of severity.
* Angina pectoris: resilience increases, pain relief is achieved.
* Heart muscle weakness: increase the performance of the heart muscle, general strengthening of the heart.
* Increased blood lipid levels: lowering triglycerides, lowering Lp (a), counteracts atherosclerosis.
* Cardiac arrhythmias: L-carnitine counteracts cardiac arrhythmias by protecting the heart cells from long-chain acyl-CoA compounds that promote arrhythmias.
* Myocardiopathy: Especially competitive athletes and pro athletes are susceptible to myocardiopathy. This affects 80% of all cases in which athletes have heart problems. L-carnitine has proven to be very effective in avoiding the disease and increasing the chances of survival in the event of acute problems.
* Heart attack profilax and follow-up treatment (acute): Heart attack prophylaxis and follow-up treatment (acute): L-carnitine can reduce the size of the necrotic area of the heart in an infarction and thus reduce the severity of a heart attack and increase the chances of survival (Spagnoli, Lancet 1982 ).
Effect of L-carnitine on the blood vessels
Due to the vasodilating effect due to the influence on the endothelial cells and the smooth muscle cells of our blood vessels, there are numerous advantages due to the increased blood flow. Taking 1,000 mg of L-carnitine in one portion leads to spontaneous vasodilation throughout the body and therefore to:
Improve cardiac circulation
* Lower blood pressure in hypertensives
* Reduction of heart rate (pulse)
* Increased blood flow to the skeletal muscles
* Increasing the oxygen absorption capacity of the skeletal muscles
* Lowering lactate levels (lactic acid levels during and after anaerobic muscle strain)
* Reduction of muscle damage (including sore muscles symptoms)
* Increase in muscle strength
* Improve brain blood flow
* Reduction of headache
* Increased alertness
* Increased ability to concentrate
* Reduce mental fatigue
* Improvement of cognitive skills (learning memory)
* Improved wound healing
* Increased leg circulation
* Increase in potency.
