Benefits for health

Let's have a look at the benefits of L-Carnitine for your health:

  • Weight loss: L-Carnitine is definitely a solution to consider when trying losing weight. L-Carnitine indeed helps your body to convert fat into energy, which leads to more fat burned. It has also been found to act as an appetite suppressant as well. Both of these effects can be really useful when trying to lose some weight.
  • Heart conditions: it’s one of the main uses of L-Carnitine. Taken regularly, it allows reducing the risk of suffering from heart attack for people with high risk factors (like high cholesterol). It can also reduce chest pain in people suffering from angina pectoris.
  • Male infertility: for men who want to have children and have low sperm counts, L-Carnitine can be a good option. Studies have found that L-can help to improve both quality and quantity of sperm produced by your men.
  • Immune system: L-Carnitine has antioxidant properties that can help prevent damage done to your healthy cells by free radicals. This is useful when you have a cold or a seasonal allergy.
  • Brain function: L-Carnitine helps protect the brain from both age related and stress related damage to the brain. It helps the brain to function longer and better.
  • People with kidney problems. Kidneys are producing L-Carnitine. Therefore, people who have kidney disease are likely to benefit of supplementing. This will help them to avoid deficiency of L-Carnitine when their kidneys are not producing enough of it.
