So, what is l-carnitine a?

L-carnitine is a naturally occurring amino acid derivative that plays a crucial role in energy metabolism. It's commonly found in animal products like meat, fish, and dairy, as well as some plant-based sources like avocado and soybeans. L-carnitine A is a specific form of l-carnitine that is often used as a dietary supplement to help support athletic performance, weight loss, and overall energy levels. It works by helping to transport fatty acids into the mitochondria of cells, where they can be used as a source of energy. Some studies suggest that l-carnitine A may also have antioxidant properties and may help reduce inflammation.
