Carnitine, a derivative of amino acids, is found in nearly all body cells. Its main role is to turn fat into energy. Under normal circumstances it is produced by our bodies. However, not all of us produce the right quantities and that becomes especially meaningful as we reach an older age. Ageing causes a decline in the production of cell energy.
To slower this process, Life Extension has developed products with optimised forms of carnitine that assist in the process of turning fat into energy more rapidly. As a result, you enjoy a quicker recovery after exercise and muscle fatigue lessens. Aside from muscles, brain and heart benefit just as well. Optimised Carnitine with GlycoCarn® combines the following advanced forms of carnitine in one single formula for the benefit of your energy input:
- Acetyl-L-Carnitine- promoting energy production in the brain and central nervous system. It also supports the release and synthesis of acetylcholine, as well as enhances the release of dopamine from neurons and helps it bind to dopamine receptors.
- ArginoCarn - a patented form of acetyl-L-carnitine arginate dihydrochloride, that is molecularly bonded to the amino acid arginine, also known as the AminoCarnitine generation. Cell studies suggest that it can promote the growth of neuritis that facilitate communication between nerve cells.
- Glycine Propionyl-L-Carnitine Hydrochloride (GlycoCarn®) - a patented form of AminoCarnitine that is molecularly bonded to the amino acid glycine, one of the precursor amino acids to carnitine biosynthesis. This form offers wide benefits, such as enhanced fatty acid metabolism, antioxidant activity and increased nitric oxide production. Recent research also indicates support for those involved in sports activities.
