L-Carnitine and Fat Loss10/30/18
In bodybuilding, the name of the game is to burn fat and gain muscle. This is done as you may know by working out, eating clean, and being consistent at both. If you lack consistency, chances are you will never see your goals and frustration will lead to lackluster workouts which leads to eventually quitting.
Don’t no one got time for that.
In the mix of that, supplementation is key. Knowing what supplements to take and even being disciplined to take them is important. Supplements are what they are called – supplements – which means they are to help assist healthy eating and hard lifting (for you muscle builders). When it comes to supplements, some are more for maintenance and function purposes, while other provide more of an aesthetic benefit or purpose. Supplements also provide you with essential and non-essential benefits, which means your body either naturally can produce it (nonessential) so you are replacing or even enhancing present amounts, or you are providing it for your body from an outside source because it cannot produce it for itself (essential).
A supplement/product that has taken the bodybuilding world by storm is a nonessential amino acid called L-carnitine. It plays a crucial role in the production of energy by transporting fatty acids into your cells' mitochondria (energy storage). Your body can actually produce L-carnitine out of the amino acids lysine and methionine.
You may be able to figure out why this has become such a popular supplement. It allows the body to utilize fat more efficiently for energy. If you are on a low carb diet such as a keto diet you get the benefits two-fold because the lack of carbs automatically triggers the body to go to fat for energy, so with the help of L-carnitine, that process is enhanced. L-carnitine has also showed to help out with overall endurance and cognitive function as well throughout the day. So even when you are not lifting or working out, the abundant amount of L-carnitine in your body Is still at work.
When it comes to L-carnitine products,
We offer a Pure L-Carnitine that is specific for mobilizing fat. While other products offer blends using Acetyl-L-Carnitine and L-Carnitine Tartrate, which are comprised of a smaller percentage of actual L-Carnitine.
Here is what other company "Blended" L-Carnitine products include;
L-Carnitine Tartrate; is Only 68% Pure Base L-Carnitine and the rest is 32% Tartaric Acid.
Acetyl L-Carnitine is the preferred form of Carnitine for brain and nerve support and not fat loss. Because the acetyl group enables the molecule to cross the blood-brain barrier more easily and may also provide substrate (acetyl groups) for synthesis of acetylcholine—a primary neurotransmitter in the brain.
So when you see a product called L-Carnitine 3000 make sure to check the supplement facts. Blended forms do not yield the best results for Fat Burning and you are Not getting a full 3000 mgs of pure L-Carnitine per serving.
We also offer KETO L-Carnitine 3500 product which is formulated for your keto folks out there. This product helps with maximizing the benefits of being on a keto diet in numerous ways, one being the addition of keto body salts, which helps the absorption of ketones in the blood that the body can use for energy.
