In a market loaded with consumers looking for a "miracle pill", and producers putting out product after product that promises great results, many people have become skeptical that any of these supplements will produce results. Some of this malcontent has to do with expectations. Many people want to take a pill, sit on the couch, eat a pizza, and lose weight. Still there are those people that work hard, have cleaned up their diet, and are losing weight, just not at a pace that they would like to be. Some of these people have turned to weight loss supplements, with mixed results. Many reap the benefits of elevated energy levels, increased metabolism, and see the results they are looking for. Others try these and are rewarded with jittery feelings, and discontinue use. For those people, maybe a high stim fat burner product isn't what your routine needs. Maybe something a little more natural, that can still provide an extra boost toward weight loss goals? Maybe an L-Carnitine supplement is just what they need.
What is L-Carnitine?
First and foremost, L-Carnitine is an amino acid that performs specific functions within the body. It is a non-essential amino acid, meaning the body can create it from other amino acids in the diet. With that said, L-Carnitine plays a very important role in the body, transporting long chain fatty acids into the cells where they are converted to energy. In short, L-Carnitine helps your body fat stores for energy.
How to add it to a supplement regimen.
Adding an L-Carnitine supplement to your daily routine isn't all that difficult. It is available in pill form, powder, or even liquid. This makes it very simple to either bring with you during the day, add to a morning shake, or just take a quick serving on it's own. This flexibility means most everyone should be able to include it pretty easily. The most widely utilized amount for a dosage of L-Carnitine is between 3-5 grams/day, as that can help improve weight loss when paired with a healthy diet and exercise.
