l-Carnitine-l-tartrate is a highly stabilized type of l-carnitine supporting cardiovascular health and recovery from exercise. l-Carnitine is an amino acid found abundantly in skeletal and heart muscle. It functions primarily to strengthen fat utilization, and in addition acts as a carrier of fatty acids into the mitochondria, where they’re oxidized and converted to energy. l-Carnitine also facilitates the removal of short and medium chain fatty acids from the mitochondria that accumulate right through normal metabolic processes. A randomized double blind, placebo- controlled trial of l-carnitine involving 101 volunteers indicated that l-carnitine maintained healthy cardiac enzymes including lipid peroxides and lactate dehydrogenase. In combination with other cardiovascular strengthen agents, l-carnitine supported ventricular function and superoxide dismutase enzyme activity in human volunteers. Long-term l- carnitine supplementation indicated positive strengthen for cardiovascular health after a 3- year follow-up in adult subjects. A contemporary placebo-controlled clinical study conducted at Ball State University in Indiana has found that l-carnitine-l-tartrate supplementation helps physical recovery from high intensity exercise. l-Carnitine-l-tartrate accommodates 68% pure l-carnitine and 32% natural l-tartaric acid.
