Get in shape for summer now!
Your body naturally produces carnitine in your liver and kidneys from the amino acids lysine and methionine. In the diet, it mainly comes from meat and other animal products. You can get some from plant products like avocado and soybeans, but as a rule, meat is the best source—and the redder the better.
Increasing your Carnitine intake is a natural way to manage weight because Carnitine picks up fat and puts it exactly in the part of the cell where it is burnt as energy.
The most critical role that L-carnitine plays in the body is in helping 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. L-carnitine does this cellular work this both when you exercise and rest, but research confirms that it is especially effective during intense exercise.
Carnitine is essential for the production of energy from fat and also prevents fatty build-up around vital organs. It also helps to build muscle and reduces feelings of hunger and weakness.
Carnitine is also beneficial in eliminating cravings and increasing the amount of energy you have to exercise. Carnitine also improves the effectiveness of antioxidant vitamins C and E.
There's another unexpected side effect you might experience with Carnitine supplementation, but it's not one you'd notice in the gym. One study from Italian researchers reports that L-carnitine was actually more effective than testosterone therapy for treating male erectile dysfunction. This could be because it boosts Nitric Oxide (NO) levels, helping you get more blood flow down there. There is also research suggesting that supplementing with L-carnitine enhances male fertility by enhancing sperm mobility.

Add one serve (1/2 teaspoon) to a cold drink and consume one hour before exercise. Use up to 2 serves daily.
While as little as 1 gram of L-Carnitine can be effective, your best bet is to take 2-3 grams per dose, along with at least 30-40 grams of carbs and 20-40 grams of protein, preferably with a meal.
One of the best times to take L-carnitine is post-workout, but you can take it with any other high-carb, high-protein meal throughout the day. If you want to stack L-carnitine with other fat-burning ingredients between meals, consider using Eat Me Acetyl L-Carnitine.
For both fat loss and performance benefits: Take 2-3 doses of Acetyl L-Carnitine with other fat-burning ingredients (Eat Me Thermo Caffeine) without food between meals, and take 1 dose of L-Carnitine with a post-workout meal.
For best results, use with Eat Me Lean Shake Protein.
