4 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD BE TAKING L-CARNITINE
Ok, you're on a diet, you're physically active, you see some results, but....everything is taking so much time. Maybe what you need is an extra boost – something that's healthy too. Ever heard of L-carnitine? It’s well known among those who want to lose weight and gain muscle mass. Here's why!
L-carnitine is an amino acid that's crucial for transporting fatty acids from the blood into mitochondria that act as energy generators for the cells.
It is not a stimulant. It is a natural substance necessary for our functioning. Our bodies synthesise it on their own, in small quantities. This process can, unfortunately, slow down due to an unbalanced diet, increased activity or ageing.
So why should you take L-carnitine?
1. To burn fat faster
Without L-carnitine, most of the fat we eat can’t be used for energy. The more L-carnitine we have, the more fat we can burn and the less of it is stored in the form of those fat cushions. It helps transform fat into energy 16% faster!*
2. To maximise the effects of any physical activity
When you exercise, your body expends energy. As L-carnitine increases the use of fats for energy, the body leaves its protein and glycogen resources alone. This means that you won't be losing your own protein (i.e. muscle mass) during activity, you’ll be losing your fat reserves.
Another influence of L-carnitine on muscle mass is the reduction of micro-injuries to muscle fibers that normally occur during each workout. Since there is less muscle damage, there is also less injury to the testosterone receptors. Studies have shown that L-carnitine also increases the number of testosterone receptors. This means that more testosterone can bind to these receptor sites, thereby affecting the increase in muscle mass.
It has also been shown that L-carnitine can help you train harder without feeling as tired.
3. For quick regeneration
L-carnitine helps accelerate muscle regeneration through various mechanisms, one of them is preventing micro-injuries in muscle fibres (common during exercise). The other one is preventing damage caused by free radicals since L-Carnitine plays the role of antioxidants in the muscles.
Another mechanism is associated with better use of testosterone (also known as a \"muscle builder\") due to the increased concentration of testosterone receptors.
4. For cardiovascular health
