Solgar Vitamins Carnitine Complex provide a combination of four distinct types of carnitine - L-Carnitine furmarate, acetyl-L-carnitine arginate, glycine propionyl-L-carnitine HCl and acetyl-L-carnitine taurinate - in a formula that optimises cellular energy production.
Individually, each type of carnitine makes its own contribution to energy production. L-cartinine carries fatty acids into the mitochondria of cells, where they are used to produce energy in the form of ATP. In addition, carnitines appear to help remove the toxic by-products of cell metabolism which can buildup and reduce cellular function.
Glycine Propionyl l-Carnitine (gPLC) appears to have a special affinity for cells within the heart muscle and has been shown to improve heart function better than normal l-carnitine. Acetyl l-carnitine (ALC) is able to cross the blood brain barrieer, and is therefore associated with brain function.
However, new clinical studies have shown that when L-carnitine, propionly-L-carnitine, and acetyl l-carnitine are combined, they have a remarkable synergistic effect. In fact, this combination of carnitines has been shown to significantly increase peak running speeed, total work load, and VO2 max in athletes compared to both placebo and individual carnitine ingredients. Likewise, the combination formula was much more effective than both palcebo and individual carnitine ingredients in helping adults recover from physical, mental, and emotional fatigue.
