L-Carnitine

Fit-Life helps with weight management, sport healthy ageing and boosts cellular energy.
Fit Life L-Carnitine is crucial for burning fat in our body.
The latest research has found that L-Carnitine can actually increase fatty acid oxidation in healthy adults.

SPORTS :
Studies on athletes have shown that L-Carnitine supplementation may boost performance.
Both an increase in maximal oxygen consumption and decrease of respiratory quotient indicate that L-Carnitine has the potential to stimulate lipid metabolism.
Supplementation with L-Carnitine prior to high intensity exercise is significantly effective in assisting recovery.
Volek JS et al. observed a decrease in the production of free radicals, less tissue damage and reduced muscle soreness after exercise and a better utilization of fat as an energy source during recovery.
Latest research shows that the beneficial recovery effect on post-exercise metabolism increases in response to the daily dosage of L-Carnitine, but that it is already statistically significant at a dosage of 1 g L-Carnitine/day.

L-CARNITINE FOR WOMEN :
Women have less muscle mass and therefore a lower biosynthesis rate than men. In addition, whilst they tend to have a higher body fat mass, their fat burning capacity is lower.
Iron deficient women can be L-Carnitine deficient which reduces their capacity to burn fat further.

FOR HEALTHY AGEING :
As body synthesis of L-Carnitine is reduced with age, elderly people are in a higher need of L-Carnitine supplementation.
L-Carnitine is a crucial nutrient for a healthy heart.
L-Carnitine has been shown to promote cognitive brain functions and can slow down the ageing process in the brain.
