Solgar Carnitine Complex is one of Solgar’s premium-quality amino acid range products containing a combination of Carnitine complexes, amino acids important for metabolism and the release of cellular energy support.
Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and are needed in several internal functions of the body. They are classified as “essential” or “non-essential”, with essential Amino Acids meaning they cannot be manufactured by the body and must be supplied in the diet to maintain good all-round health. Amino acids can be further used by the body to create hormones, enzymes, neurotransmitters, antibodies and nutrient carriers. A suboptimal intake of the essential Amino Acids increases the body’s need for the non-essential Amino Acids either through diet or supplementation. Foods that increase amino acid intake are meat, beans, cheese and eggs.
Carnitine is an amino acid made up of two other essential amino acids; Methionine and Lysine. Carnitine is important for fat metabolism, especially in heart and muscle cells. It is also necessary for the transport of long chain fatty acids into cell mitochondria where the acids are oxidised and burned for energy.
Solgar Carnitine Complex comes in an easy, 2 tablets a day, dose, providing L-Carnitine, Acetyl-L-Carnitine and Propionyl-L-Carnitine.
