Met-Rx® Liquid L-Carnitine 1500 is one of the most versatile supplements available – perfect for all athletes. Carnitine helps the body convert food to energy – providing support for endurance exercise (aerobic) and during recovery from high intensity activities such as weightlifting and sprinting (anaerobic).*
Our formula is further enhanced with a high amount of Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5). Once Pantothenic Acid is converted into Coenzyme A in the body, it works directly with Carnitine to support converting food to Energy.*
When searching for the optimal energy production, we all look at the mitochondria of our cells. This is where the magic happens and where energy is created for our bodies to perform at its best. Found in the mitochondria of a cell is a nutrient called carnitine. Fat is the most abundant source of energy in the body and provides over 2x more energy per gram than carbs or protein. Carnitine (found naturally in the cell), helps utilize fat and turn it into a usable energy source. 95% of the body’s carnitine is located in skeletal and cardiac muscle. A typical diet only supplies approximately 100mg of carnitine a day (vegetarians are likely to have an even lower amount than that).
