• Carnitine is an amino acid made in the body that is essential to convert fatty acids into energy. It is produced in the liver and kidneys and stored in the muscles, including the heart muscle, and in sperm and brain tissue. Carnitine deficiencies can be caused by genetic disorders, liver or kidney problems, high-fat diets, certain medications and deficiencies in other essential amino acids.
• While carnitine has been used by athletes to improve muscle quality, its primary use has been to address heart and brain conditions. L-Carnitine is most widely used for heart, memory and brain related functions. Meat-based diets provide more of this amino acid than do grain-based diets.
• Recommended supplementation amounts vary depending on individual need. For muscular performance, 1000 to 2000 mg divided into 2 doses is usual. For heart problems, 600 to 1200 mg 3 times daily is often used. For alcohol related deficiencies, 300 mg 3 times a day is preferable. For chronic fatigue, 500 to 1000 mg 3 to 4 times a day is not uncommon.
