Balance Liquid Carnitine is specially formulated to provide pure pharmecutical grade carnitine, an essential fat mobilising amino acid, in a convinient form. Carnitine is biologically active and its use may increase fat burning and muscular performance. Carnitine is essential for the transport and transformation of fatty acids into energy for muscular activity. Each 10ml serve provides 500mg of carnitine. Citrus Flavour. 300ml
Carnitine is a naturally occurring substance that works as a transport molecule, moving nutrients and long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondria or power house of the cell, where they are turned into a chemical called ATP, a type of energy. ATP is a primary source of energy for the heart and skeletal muscles and is used by the body whenever energy is needed. Carnitine also carries toxic wastes out of the cell, so they can be removed from the body.
75% of most dietary needs for carnitine are met through diet. Carnitine comes from meat, dairy products and breast milk. The rest is produced in the our liver and kidneys. However, the ability of the body to produce and utilize carnitine is dependent upon a person's health. People with metabolic disorders are at risk of suffering from a carnitine deficiency. A metabolic disorder occurs when one or more of the components (enzymes) needed in the metabolic process is missing or is only doing part of its job. When this happens, the cell's energy-producing components - the mitochondria - cannot completely do their job of breaking down fats, sugars or proteins to produce energy.
Supplementing Carnitine makes sense for any athlete or anyone who wishes to lose weight. Research confirms carnitine supplements inhibit the decline in free Carnitine in muscle caused by maximal exercise. Carnitine also increases maximal use of oxygen, while reducing the build up acids and metabolic wastes during endurance exercise. When improving fat metabolism studies show taking carnitine raises blood levels, thus improving the ability to transport fats for oxidation. Patients who have increased body fat, have difficulty in utilising fat for energy, and have high levels of blood lipids, thus an increased need for carnitine. Carnitine is so successful in medicine that three US pharmaceutical companies now make prescription tablets. Well-controlled studies have demonstrated carnitine to be useful in angina and congestive heart disease patients. Because of its role in pyruvate metabolism, which regulates oxygen availability to muscle, carnitine has also been used to treat patients with respiratory insufficiencies such as asthma.
