L-Carnitine is the biologically active form of the amino acid responsible for the intracellular transport of fatty acids to the mitochondria. Critical concentrations of this compound within cells diminish with aging and compromise metabolism throughout the body. L-Carnitine is the key to robust mitochondrial energy production within cells that lie at the heart of health, vigor, and vitality for the entire body and mind. Improved cardiac health, superior cognitive function, better exercise endurance and stamina and healthy liver and kidney function are among the benefits to be reaped with L-Carnitine supplementation.
