4 reasons why you should be taking L-carnitine
You're on a diet, you’re exercising, having protein shakes... but the muscles just aren’t there. Maybe what you need is an extra boost – something that's also healthy. Ever heard of L-carnitine? It’s well known to those who want to lose weight and gain muscle mass. Here's why!
L-carnitine is an amino acid that helps your body transform fat into energy.
It is not a stimulant. It is a natural substance that our bodies need in order to function. Our bodies synthesise it in small quantities. Unfortunately, this process may 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 fatty deposits.
2. To increase muscle mass
When you exercise, your body expends energy. The L-carnitine uses fat for energy instead protein and glycogen resources. This means we don't lose protein (i.e. muscle mass) during training, we lose fat reserves.
L-carnitine has been shown to help us 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 acts as 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!
