Balance Carnitine offers the benefits of absorbable Levocarnitine Tartrate, providing 342mg elemental L-Carnitine per capsule. L-Carnitine supports the beta-oxidation of fats in the mitochondria, enhancing their conversion to energy, supports muscle recovery and lean muscle mass, particularly with advancing age.
- Increase Muscle to Fat Ratio.
- Support Mitochondrial Function.
- Improve Power Output and Endurance.
- Support Natural Energy Level.
- Reduce Muscle Soreness.
Balance Carnitine is a pure encapsultation of a popular dietary and sports supplement that delivers a range of benefits. L-Carnitine is a dipeptide composed of the two amino acids methionine and lysine. Methionine is a sulfur containing amino acid, as are cysteine, taurine and homocysteine which are derived from it. Sulfur-rich foods tend to have a distinctive aroma, much as other sulfur-ruch foods do, like eggs, cabbage and onions.
It is the sulfur contained within L-Carnitine that gives it a distinctive odour, which is why capsules can be the preferred method of administration. However, sulfur is an important mineral, that performs a number of crucial roles in the body, such as supporting the functioning of enzymes.
The body produces its own carnitine, and we consume some through our diet as well. Despite this, there have been a large number of benefits associated with supplementing more of this important dipeptide. Firstly, Carnitine plays the important biological role of transporting long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondria—an organelle found inside the cell—where they are used for Beta Oxidation, which is the conversion to compounds necessary for energy production.
So essentially, it is the conversion of fats into energy. And research does indicate that supplementation with this nutrient can lead to an extra 1.33kg of weight loss during a weight-loss program, and the benefits tend to be more pronounced the longer it is taken1. Carnitine may also be useful for the treatment of fatigue disorders, such as chronic fatigue syndrome, as it supports mitochondrial funciton. Therefore, Carnitine may be useful for fat burning, mitochondrial function and fatigue issues.
There are many other effects of this dipeptide that have been identified, such as increased VO2 and power output, and the alleviation of muscular soreness, perhaps via reducing free-radical formation3. Furthermore, L-Carnitine may also increase muscle to fat mass ratios in older adults, and reduce physical and mental fatigue. These certainly are exceptional functions for a versatile nutrient.
Balance Carnitine is a great product that may be used for a variety of reasons, well beyond its typical use as a weight-loss product—though it's great for this too!
