Carnitine tablets contain two different types of carnitine: carnitine tartrate and acetyl-carnitine.
This last one has a stronger affinity for the neural structures, where it has energy and neuroprotective functions.
Approximately 95% of the carnitine present in our organism is located in the skeletal muscle.
Carnitine acts as a fatty acid-carrier during the process of beta-oxidation, which demolishes them for energy purposes inside the inner mitochondrial membrane.
During the phases of intense aerobic effort, it is important to benefit from good carnitine availability to ensure a continued lipid metabolism and to obtain optimal and prolonged performances over time.
Carnitine improves the fats’ energy yield and contributes to reducing muscle glycogen, delaying fatigue during the workout and accelerating post-exercise recovery.
Carnitine’s beneficial effects were employed with some success to treat overweight people, to promote the elderly’s cardiovascular wellbeing, to fight sterility associated with poor sperm motility, to improve learning and memory capacities.
Its deficiency causes fat accumulation in the adipose tissues.
The vial formula adds a new feature: the combination of acetyl-carnitine and propionyl-carnitine.
This last one is clinically used to treat problems like reduced peripheral circulation, congestive heart failure, erectile dysfunction, physical fatigue.
Unlike the other formulas, this is an especially useful vasodilator allowing a better supply of oxygen to the peripheral tissues, and is particularly important during exercise in low-temperature environments, during the phase of energy reserve exhaustion.
Carnitine is indicated for fatigued, overweight subjects with reduced vitality, and for sports people who play endurance sports.
TABS: take 1 tablet per day preferably during the main meal or 40 minutes before exercise.
