L-Carnitine occurs naturally in animal products (esp. beef) with smaller amounts in dairy, fish and chicken and in very small amounts in avocado and some fermented soy products such as tempeh. Methionine and lysine serve as precursors to the synthesis of L-Carnitine.
High stress levels, parenteral nutrition patients and elderly patients may not be able to synthesize sufficient quantities of L-Carnitine. Under these circumstances L-Carnitine is considered a conditionally essential nutrient and supplementation may be required. Children at 21/2 years of age synthesize L-Carnitine at about 30% the adult rate. Full capacity does not occur until age 15. L-Carnitine has cardioprotective activity, triglyceride lowering and HDL raising benefits.
L-Carnitine may protect neurological protective properties. All body tissues, except for the brain metabolize long-chain fatty acids for energy production. L-Carnitine transports long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondria where they are oxidized (metabolized) and enhance the mitochondrial production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Enhancing ATP production improves the metabolic efficiency in the tissues involved.
