4 reasons why you should be taking L-carnitine
Ok, you're on a diet, you're physically active, you see some results, but....everything is taking so much time! Maybe what you need is an extra boost – something that's healthy too. Ever heard of L-carnitine? It’s well known among those who want to lose weight and gain muscle mass. Here's why!
L-carnitine is an amino acid that's crucial for transporting fatty acids from the blood into mitochondria that act as energy generators for the cells.
It is not a stimulant. It is a natural substance necessary for our functioning. Our bodies synthesise it on their own, in small quantities. This process can, unfortunately, slow down due to an unbalanced diet, increased activity or ageing.
So why should you take L-carnitine?
1. To burn fat faster
Without L-carnitine, most of the fat we eat can’t be used for energy. The more L-carnitine we have, the more fat we can burn and the less of it is stored in the form of those fat cushions. It helps fat to transform into energy 16% faster!
2. To maximise the effects of any physical activity
When you exercise, your body expends energy. As L-carnitine increases the use of fats for energy, the body leaves its protein and glycogen resources alone. This means that you won't be losing your own protein (i.e. muscle mass) during activity, you’ll be losing your fat reserves.
It has also been shown that L-carnitine can help you train harder without feeling as tired.
3. For quick regeneration
L-carnitine helps accelerate muscle regeneration through various mechanisms, one of them is preventing micro-injuries in muscle fibres (common during exercise). The other one is preventing free radical damage since L-carnitine plays a role of an antioxidant in the muscles.
4. For cardiovascular health
Numerous studies have shown that l-carnitine has protective properties for the cardiovascular system, it may even lower the risk of cardiovascular disease for some people!
