L-Carnitine is a naturally occurring quaternary ammonium salt, which is essential in the metabolism of fatty acids. In human studies the endpoints achieved from a daily dose over an 8-week period, were weight loss efficacy, fat mass reduction, lipid utilisation and resting energy expenditure. L-carnitine helps to transport fat, particularly long-chain fatty acids, into the mitochondria of cells. Once there, they can be oxidized—used as fuel—to generate adenosine triphosphate, or ATP, by helping to transport the fat you have into your cellular furnaces to get burned as energy.
