L-Carnitine is a physiological substance, essential for energy production and for fat metabolism. Your body uses L-Carnitine to transport fat into your body's cells for energy.
An increasing body of scientific evidence illustrates the favourable effects of L-Carnitine for athletes and physically active people in regard to performance, fatigue and recovery.


L-Carnitine supplementation increased the peak treadmill running speed in marathon runners and increased VO2max in cyclists and long distance walkers. Positive effects on VO2max are good news because it is one of the most important measures of a person's ability to perform high intensity exercise for longer than 4 to 5 minutes.


Research indicates that L-Carnitine supplementation decreases lactic acid accumulation and spares glycogen and therefore plays a role in delaying fatigue, as described by various research groups.


The most recent clinical study opens new avenues in regard to a role for L-Carnitine apart from its classical muscle energetic function: daily L-Carnitine consumption prior to high intensity exercise significantly reduced muscle pain and decreased muscle damage in untrained subjects. In simple terms, this means that L-Carnitine supplementation can help in the recovery process. The protective effects might be partly due to enhancement of oxygen supply to the muscle via increased blood flow.
