NOW® L-Carnitine Liquid has all of the properties of carnitine in a highly absorbable liquid form. L-Carnitine is a non-essential amino acid that helps to maintain overall good health by facilitating the transfer of fatty acid groups into the mitochondrial membrane for cellular energy production. It naturally occurs in red meat and other animal-source foods, but NOW recommend supplementation to obtain optimal levels of this excellent amino acid. NOW® L-Carnitine is the purest form, clinically tested, and vegetarian (non-animal sourced). Carnipure® offers purest L-Carnitine and is a registered trademark of Lonza Ltd, Switzerland and is supported by numerous studies.

L-Carnitine is synthesized in the body from the amino acids lysine and methionine and plays a critical role in energy production by transporting long-chain fatty acids into mitochondria, our cells’ “power plants,” for energy production. Energy production results in toxic metabolic byproducts. L-Carnitine helps to transport these materials out of mitochondria, preventing their accumulation.
Research suggests that as we age, carnitine levels decline, which may lead to a reduction in the integrity of the mitochondrial membrane and deterioration of mitochondrial function. Loss of optimal mitochondrial function is believed to contribute to the aging process. The heart runs primarily on energy produced from fat; consequently, Carnitine is highly concentrated in cardiac tissues and may help to support normal cardiac function.
