About L-Carninite

L-carnitine is a nutrient and dietary supplement. The mitochondria act as engines within your cells, burning these fats to create usable energy. Your body can produce L-carnitine out of the amino acids lysine and methionine. For your body to produce it in sufficient amounts, you also need plenty of vitamin C. L-carnitine's main role in your body involves mitochondrial function and energy production. In cells, it helps transport fatty acids into the mitochondria, where they can be burned for energy. About 98% of your L-carnitine stores are contained in your muscles, along with trace amounts in your liver and blood.Newer research illustrates the potential benefits of carnitine’s different forms, which may be used for various conditions, including heart and brain diseases.

Summary:

L-carnitine is an amino acid derivative that transports fatty acids into your cells to be processed for energy. It is made by your body and also available as a supplement.

How L-Carninite might help

Cancer patients state that fatigue is one of the most distressing symptoms associated with cancer, and the general condition during cancer treatment is difficult to manage with medications. This treatment may improve the tolerability of chemotherapy in cancer patients by reducing general fatigue and improving the nutritional status. Recent studies demonstrated that L-carnitine (LC) supplementation in patients with cancer was effective in reducing fatigue and increasing the lean body mass and appetite. However, the type of patients who may benefit from LC supplementation has not been fully elucidated.
