L-Carnitine Clinical Studies

Study #1


“The role of carnitine in long-chain fatty acid oxidation is well defined.  . . . This mass action effect underlies the use of carnitine as a therapeutic agent. In summary, these new observations help to further our understanding of the molecular aspects of carnitine in medicine."


[Alison Steiber et al, Carnitine: a nutritional, functional, and biosynthetic perspective, Molecular Aspects of Medicine, October-December 2004, 25(5-6): 455-473]  


Study #2


“L-carnitine supplementation reduced serum leptin and abdominal fat weight caused by high-fat diet. . .   Also, both exercise training and supplementation of carnitine and antioxidants improved lipid profiles and carnitine metabolism in humans, suggesting that carnitine and antioxidant supplementation may improve exercise performance.”
