Carnitine and Weight Loss
Published: January 07, 2010 Last Updated: March 21, 2016
Carnitine is an amino acid you can use to break down fat deposits in the blood vessels and muscles. Having broken down the fat, carnitine carries it into the cells where it is burned as fuel. Studies have shown that many overweight patients have low levels of carnitine and often suffer from high blood cholesterol and blood pressure.
The energy that is released when the fatty acids are burned also have other benefits, such as increased alertness, greater stamina and heightened sexual interest.
Carnitine and ketosis
Carnitine also helps to protect dieters from ketosis. This is the damage caused by an accumulation of ketone bodies - the toxic waste products of fat. When fat is mobilized, ketones are left behind like sediment in a wine bottle. They raise the level of activity in your blood and make the body dump vital minerals such as potassium, calcium, magnesium and more. This can lead to kidney damage and more serious problems .
