While it is often categorized as an amino acid, L-carnitine isn’t technically an amino. It is considered a “vitamin-like” and “amino-acid-like” compound that is related to the B vitamins. It mainly comes from meat and other animal products. You can get some from plant products like avocado and soybeans, but as a rule, meat is the best source—and the redder the better.

L-carnitine helps your body to produce energy by utilizing the body’s fat stores allowing you to work-out for longer and ultimately aiding in fat loss. Taking L-carnitine on a daily basis has been proven to increase the blood and muscular concentrations of this amino acid-like compound, enhancing fat metabolism.

L-carnitine is considered a “conditionally essential” nutrient: Your body produces it, but if it doesn’t produce enough, your health can be seriously impacted.nA study out of Scotland concluded that in addition to its fat-transporting work, L-carnitine also enhances insulin’s actions on muscle cells. What this means is that L-carnitine can help keep blood glucose levels low, even after a carb-rich meal, while also aiding glycogen repletion.
