Lets talk about L-Carnitine :
The name L-Carnitine comes from a greek work ”Carnus” which means meat.
L-Carnitine is the damn good amino acid. It is naturally produced in our body which is pretty much sufficient for the normal function. But if you are an athlete, sportsperson or into bodybuilding then you need to add more quantity of L-Carnitine in your body.
We get L-Carnitine from non vegetarian as well as from vegetarian food like meat, nuts, seeds and vegetables.
Benefits of L-Carnitine :
Basically, L-Carnitine transforms the stored fat into energy. It pushes the stored fatty acids in the blood stream which is finally burned as energy through exercise. Also, it increases the blood flow so that more nutrients will be supplied to the muscles.
It is a simple fat burning strategy and will not at all affect your muscles.
Other benefits of using L-Carnitine are listed below :
- Improves heart health
- Enhance male fertility and increases the sperm count
- Improves brain function (Neurological benefits)
- Healthy immune system (Antioxidant properties)
- Useful in diabetes prevention and treatment
- Workout recovery
- Improves vascularity
How much L-Carnitine you can take :
Consuming 2-3 gram of L-Carnitine per day (split the dosage with early morning, pre and post workout) is totally safe if you are an athlete and have serious goals.
Remember to drink at-least 3-4 litres of water while taking this supplement.
