No “magic pill” here ladies and gentlemen! Better yet a “magic” liquid! Feast your eyes on L-Carnitine.
What is L-Carnitine, you ask?
L-Carnitine or carnitine is an amino acid(building block of protein) which can be found in red meat, in your body, and obviously in supplements.
What is its job?
Carnitines job is to help your body produce energy. This is the best part! It helps your body produce energy by delivering fatty acids from stored body fat to the mitochondria of muscle cells to be used for energy. In other words you have an increased fat metabolism…we all want that!
Tell me more!
This amino acid also crosses the blood brain barrier, giving you a powerful antioxidant that increases mental alertness, and concentration.
That means you burn fat and think more clearly! That’s a 2 for 1 special right there!
When and how?
You should take carnitine 15-30 minutes before physical activity. Once it’s in the blood stream you’ll begin to notice the mental effects.
You’ll want to take about 1.5-2 grams per serving. There’s studies that show you should start noticing a drop in body fat in about 2 weeks if a healthy diet and exercise regimen are put in place.
So there you go people something new to think about!
