The Security Guard of Our Mitochondria – L-Carnitine

Today in Episode 111, I cover a listener requested topic, all about Carnitine. We make Carnitine in our body; it is essential for our ability to turn fat into energy. As such, orally supplementing with Carnitine has been studied in the context of fat loss, exercise performance, mental functioning, cognition, and overall health in chronic disease. Deficiencies in Carnitine can occur in some individuals. But who is at risk for deficiency and is supplementation safe or effective? Tune in to find out!
