Carnitine General Information
Carnitine is an amino acid produced endogenously in the kidneys and liver and is derived from meat and dairy products. Carnitine has been found to have health benefits associated primarily with heart health and plays an important role in the protection against heart disease. An additional health benefit of Carnitine is that it increases fat metabolism; therefore, it can help reduce the chances of becoming obese. Carnitine is a nutrient responsible for the transport of long chain fatty acids into the energy producing centers of the cells (known as mitochondria). In other words, Carnitine helps the body convert fatty acids into energy, which is used primarily for muscular activities throughout the body. Many athletes and body builders use Carnitine supplements because they believe it increases stamina and develops muscle mass.

Carnitine Uses & Scientific Evidence For
Research studies have shown that people who supplement with Carnitine while engaging in an exercise regimen are less likely to have muscle soreness; however, there is no evidence that supports the belief that Carnitine helps build muscle or improve athletic performance. In other clinical trials, Carnitine has been given to people with chronic lung disease to research how the body responds to exercise, and in these double-blind reports, they found positive changes in lung function and metabolism during exercise. Carnitine supplements have also been used to treat angina, chronic heart failure, heart attack, anemia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and diabetes.

Some people have dietary deficiencies of Carnitine or cannot properly absorb this nutrient from foods that they eat. Carnitine deficiencies may be caused by genetic disorders, liver or kidney problems, high-fat diets, certain medications and low dietary levels of the amino acids Lysine and Methionine (substances needed to make Carnitine). Carnitine deficiencies may cause symptoms such as fatigue, chest pain, muscle pain, weakness, low blood pressure, and/or confusion.

Carnitine Dosage Information
Amino acid supplements prefaced by the letter L, such as L-carnitine, are more similar to the amino acids in the body than those that start with the letter D, with the exception of D-L phenylalanine, which treats chronic pain. Most people do not need to supplement their diet with Carnitine; however, for therapeutic use, the standard dosage is 13 grams per day.

When digested as a pill, Carnitine is not able to cross the blood brain barrier as well as its activated form Acetyl-L-Carnitine, which has a significantly more noticeable effect on the mind than Carnitine.

Carnitine Safety & Interaction Information
Carnitine deficiencies are rare, even in strict vegetarians, because the body produces it so easily, though rare genetic diseases, diabetes, and cirrhosis, can cause a Carnitine deficiency. In some heart conditions oxygen deprivation can occur, which could lead to a deficiency in Carnitine as well.

When taking Valproic acid is more likely to cause toxicity if the patient under treatment has a carnitine deficiency. The drug may cause decreased Carnitine levels. Supplements of Carnitine may increase the effects of the anticoagulant medication Warfarin.
