What is l-carnitine? (0:40)
L-carnitine is a naturally occurring amino acid derivative that's often taken as a supplement. Most of the focus about l-carnitine is regarding its benefits for weight loss, but it also may have an impact on brain function.
However, popular claims about supplements don’t always match up with the science. So before making any serious claims about whether or not it's an effective supplement, we looked at the research.
In this video, you'll discover both the potential risks and benefits of L-carnitine supplements and how this nutrient functions in your body.
How l-carnitine seems to help with weight loss (0:50)
This is where the science and research do show the direct effects of l-carnitine on your body's ability to burn fat. See, inside our cells, we have mitochondria (often referred to as the powerhouse of our cells). One of the main functions of mitochondria is to shuttle fatty acids through the cell wall so they can be converted to ATP and burned off as energy.
L-carnitine plays a big role in helping move the fatty acids across the membrane wall efficiently. So the logic stands that it would have some fat burning benefits, right?
How good are the benefits really? (1:24)
So, when answering this question, does l-carnitine actually have serious benefits for weight loss, what we're really talking about is whether or not supplementing with l-carnitine is effective.
Hope this helps!
