What is the role of L-Carnitine in weight loss?
LAMBERTS® does not generally provide supplements for weight loss, however there is data to support the validity of carnitina in this regard, being the preferred by athletes because it plays a role in the thermogenesis (heat production) of brown adipose tissue and in the regulation of gluconeogenesis.
Its most important known metabolic function is to transport long chain fatty acids into the mitochondria of muscle cells, including those in the myocardium for oxidation. The Carnitine is also responsible for removing waste products from the mitochondria.
LAMBERTS® L-Carnitine is structured in such a way that is ready to be absorbed by the body without needing to be broken down by digestive enzymes. It contains no caffeine so it can be combined with other products.
Each capsule provides a full 500mg of pure L-Carnitine, provided by 745mg of a compound called L-Carnitine L-tartrate. Some companies label their product as if this compound is 100% L-Carnitine, but it is actually only 67% L-Carnitine. However LAMBERTS® does it correctly and our product is made in the UK to pharmaceutical GMP standards.
L-Carnitine is one of the most popular amino acid supplements and because the raw material is relatively expensive we advise some caution when choosing L-carnitine supplements, particularly imported products.
