L-carnitine is a nutrient and dietary supplement. It plays a crucial role in the production of energy by transporting fatty acids into your cells' mitochondria. The mitochondria act as engines within your cells, burning these fats to create usable energy.
Your body can produce L-carnitine out of the amino acids lysine and methionine. For your body to produce it in sufficient amounts, you also need plenty of vitamin C. In addition to the L-carnitine produced in your body, you can also obtain small amounts by eating animal products like meat or fish.
L-carnitine is the standard biologically active form of carnitine, which is found in your body, foods and most supplements.
