Carnitine is an important amino acid made by the body from lysine. Its most important known metabolic function is to transport long chain fatty acids into the mitochondria of muscle cells for oxidation. Cardiac muscle is especially dependent upon this mechanism as an important source of metabolic energy. Due to its physiological role, L-Carnitine supplementation is often chosen by sports people.
In addition carnitine has a role in the thermogenesis (heat production) of brown adipose tissue, and in the regulation of gluconeogenesis. For this reason it is often taken as a supplement by slimmers.
Carnitine may enhance sperm motility and aid male fertility in some cases.
The main source of carnitine in our diet comes from red meat and dairy foods, whilst dietary supplementation of L-Carnitine can safeguard intake of this metabolically essential substance.
