1) Utilization of energy – Fatty acid’s are transported more into the cells for burning. Energy yield and you can lose more weight by exercising.
2) Balanced Cholesterol level – Because the fatty acids are being used up for burning, thus our cholesterol level will be balanced up by increasing the HDL and lowering LDL.
3) Healthy Heart – Because the cholesterol level is in controlled, so the risk at which arteriosclerosis will be minimized. If a person who has exposed to arteriosclerosis and aged, he will definitely facing the risk of heart attack because the heart is using a lot of energy to pump blood through narrow vessels.
4) Muscle building – For people who work out in gym, they will use L-Carnitine for toning up the muscles. When fatty acids are transported and burned in mitochondria that fat tissue will getting lesser and more muscle is built by exercising.
Function or Purpose:
L-Carnitine is used by the body to transport long chain fatty acids to the mitochondria ( a cell’s powerhouse ) in your cells, where they are burned for energy By shuttling more fatty acids into the cell’s mitochondria to be used for energy, L-Carnitine ensures that less fat gets stored as body fat.
Carnitine also functions to clear metabolic waste products out of the mitochondria. This detoxification role of Carnitine enables the mitochondria to continue its energy producing function at peak output. If waste products were permitted to build up, the breakdown of fatty acids in the mitochondria would slow down and become impaired.
Since this fat burning is such a major source of muscular energy, deficiencies in L-Carnitine are manifested as low energy levels and muscular weakness. L-Carnitine deficiencies can also appear as mental confusion or cloudiness, angina (heart pain’ and weight gain.
By increasing the amount of L-Carnitine in your body, you will increase the use of fat as a fuel source, making weight loss faster and easier.
