L-Carnitine is an amino acid that transports fatty acids in the mitochondria of cells. This occurs during the catabolism of lipids to generate energy. This process allows lipids, or fats, to not accumulate in areas. Research has indicated that L-Carnitine also maintains a healthy red blood cell count. Natural carnitine is found in red meat and other animal sources. Supplementation may be recommended to achieve optimal levels. Bio-Tech Carnitine uses biologically active L-Carnitine Fumarate instead of the inactive D-Carnitine enantiomer.
