L carnitine is a naturally occurring substance found in most cells of the body, particularly the brain and neural tissues, muscles, and heart. Carnitine, whose structure is similar to choline, is widely available in animal foods (meat, poultry, fish and dairy products), whereas plants have very small amounts. Most non-vegetarians consume about 100 to 300 mg of carnitine a day, and the body is able to synthesize this nutrient if dietary intake is inadequate.*

L-Carnitine supplement questions
Q. Where does carnitine come from when it is in a supplement form?
A. Although, carnitine is a naturally occurring molecule in all living cells, in general; all commercially available carnitine sources such as acetyly L carnitine and carnitine tartrate are synthetically made by the chemical industry in the US.
Q. I am interested in taking a carnitine supplement but not sure whether acetyl l carnitine would be preferable.
A. When ingested as a pill, carnitine is not able to cross the blood-brain barrier as well as its activated form acetyl-l carnitine. Acetyl l carnitine has a more noticeable effect on the mind than carnitine. Acetyl-l carnitine usually enhances mental clarity and focus, along with slight mood elevation. The effects of carnitine are more physical than mental, in the sense that carnitine may provide physical energy whereas acetyl l carnitine provides more mental energy.
Q. Is l carnitine an antioxidant? Which is a better antioxidant to take?
A. Both acetyl l carnitine and carnitine are excellent antioxidants, although the former may be more potent.
Carnitine deficiency in older men and women
Mechanistic Contribution of Carnitine Deficiency to Geriatric Frailty.
Ageing Res Rev. 2010 Mar 8. Crentsil V.Division of General Internal Medicine, Johns Hopkins University, School of Medicine, 1830 East Monument Street, Baltimore, MD 21205.
Frailty is a geriatric syndrome characterized by muscle weakness, sarcopenia, and fatigue, and is associated with several adverse health outcomes, including disability. Carnitine is important for energy production in skeletal muscles and there seems to be a negative correlation between advancing age and muscle carnitine levels. Carnitine deficiency may therefore result in geriatric frailty. Age-associated carnitine deficiency from a variety of etiologies may potentially explain the relationship between carnitine-associated mitochondrial dysfunction and geriatric frailty. Development of therapeutic agents capable of prevention or reversal of carnitine deficiency in older adults may minimize the occurrence of frailty in geriatric populations.
Caloric restriction and L-carnitine administration improves insulin sensitivity in patients with impaired glucose metabolism.
JPEN J Parenter Enteral Nutr. 2010 May-Jun; Department of Clinical Medicine, Sapienza University, Rome, Italy.
Reduced circulating and tissue carnitine levels, possibly leading to impaired mitochondrial function, have been postulated to be involved in the pathogenesis of insulin resistance. However, whether L-carnitine administration may improve insulin sensitivity in patients with impaired fasting glucose (IFG) or type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM-2) is still controversial. The aim of the study was to explore the role of L-carnitine supplementation in influencing insulin sensitivity. Patients were randomly assigned to receive a hypocaloric diet for 10 days (group C; n = 8) or the same dietetic regimen in addition to oral L-carnitine (2 g twice daily) supplementation (group LC; n = 8). Oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT), fasting plasma insulin levels, and homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR) were assessed at the beginning and end of the study. OGTT at 2 hours improved in both groups. Only in the L-carnitine-supplemented group did plasma insulin levels and HOMA-IR significantly decrease when compared to baseline values. Oral L-carnitine administration, when associated with a hypocaloric feeding regimen, improves insulin resistance.
