Although the body has the ability to convert L-Carnitine to Acetyl-L-Carnitine and vice versa, the supplements are effective for supporting different functions. L-Carnitine is essential for transporting long-chain fatty acids across the mitochondrial membrane for subsequent fat breakdown and energy generation. Because of its role in energy generation, L-Carnitine has a broad array of health benefits including weight management, recovery after exercise, cardiovascular health (the heart gets 70% of its energy from fat breakdown), male fertility, healthy aging, and infant nutrition.*
