L-Carnitine

Why Do Athletes Use It?*

Some athletes say that L-carnitine improves athletic performance.

What Do the Advocates Say?*

This is a good supplement to take if you exercise, particularly if you participate in endurance activities, such as running. It helps with transporting fatty acids into the mitochondria, so L-carnitine may make exercise more productive, particularly among obese people.
