Studies on the beneficial effects of L-carnitine on the cardiovascular system began as early as 1937. L-camitine benefits the cardiovascular system in several ways. First, it is responsible for clearing fatty acids (triglycerides) out of the blood into the mitochondria (the energy powerhouse of the cells) to be broken down. Fatty acids are the major source for production of energy in the heart muscles. Therefore, heart muscles are particularly vulnerable to L-carnitine deficiency. Studies show that heart muscle levels of L-carnitine are decreased in the following conditions: angina pectoris (lack of oxygen to the heart causing chest pain), myocardial infarction (heart attack ) and chronic coronary insufficiency (weak heart muscle resulting in lack of oxygen to the body causing symptoms, such as breathlessness, fatigue, poor circulation). These studies have demonstrated the following important functions of L-carnitine: increasing cardiac output, improving heart muscle function, stimulating energy supply to the heart, increasing endurance, enhancing cardiac performance and regulating heart arrythmias.
has been approved by the FDA under the name Carnitor as as a
therapy for low energy levels, congestive heart disease, and other
diseases associated with low cellular energy levels. Numerous published
studies have shown that L-Carnitine is effective in treating a wide
range of diseases including the neurological diseases of aging, immune
dysfunction, and diabetic complications.
