CARNITINE IS A NUTRIENT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE TRANSPORT OF LONG-CHAIN FATTY ACIDS INTO THE MITOCHONDRIA, THE ENERGY-PRODUCING CENTERS OF CELLS

Carnitine helps the body convert fatty acids into energy, which is used primarily for muscular activities throughout the body. The body produces carnitine in the liver and kidneys and stores it in the skeletal muscles, heart, brain, and sperm. The body needs lysine, methionine, vitamin C, iron, niacin, and vitamin B6 to produce carnitine.

Some people have dietary deficiencies of carnitine or cannot properly absorb this nutrient from foods that they eat. Carnitine deficiencies may be caused by genetic disorders, liver or kidney problems, high-fat diets, certain medications, and low dietary levels of the amino acids lysine and methionine (substances needed to make carnitine). Carnitine deficiencies may cause symptoms such as fatigue, chest pain, muscle pain, weakness, low blood pressure, and/or confusion.

USES OF SUPPLEMENTAL L-CARNITINE

The strongest evidence for the use of supplemental L-carnitine may be in the management of cardiac ischemia and peripheral arterial disease. It may also more generally be indicated for cardioprotection. It lowers triglyceride levels and increases levels of HDL-cholesterol in some. It is used with some benefit in those with primary and secondary carnitine deficiency syndromes.

Studies suggest that people who take L-carnitine supplements soon after suffering a heart attack may be less likely to suffer a subsequent heart attack, die of heart disease, experience chest pain and abnormal heart rhythms, or develop congestive heart failure.

Favorable results have been reported for many years with regard to the use of L-carnitine in the treatment of various forms of cardiovascular disease. The walking capacity of patients with intermittent claudication was significantly improved in one double-blind, cross-over study of patients receiving oral L-carnitine. The data in this study suggests that L-carnitine enhances pyruvate utilization and oxidative phosphorylation efficiency in the skeletal muscle of the ischemic leg.

An indirect role for supplemental L-carnitine in some forms of liver disease is suggested, because hepatic disease impairs the last stage of L-carnitine synthesis resulting in L-carnitine deficiencies in heart and skeletal muscle. Preliminary work suggests that L-carnitine can reduce fat deposits in some fatty livers. Research is ongoing.
