Lamberts L-Carnitine 60 capsules supplement contains 500mg of L-Carnitine, an amino acid known to help lower high cholesterol levels and boost energy.
L-Carnitine’s most important known metabolic function is to transport long chain fatty acids into the mitochondria of all muscle cells where they are oxidised and burned for energy. L-Carnitine also helps to reduce cholesterol and triglyceride levels, while improving the ratio between HDL (good) levels and LDL (bad) levels. These two functions explain its frequent use in cardiovascular concerns, sluggish liver, fat loss and enhanced anaerobic endurance to exercise.
Studies at the University of Lubeck in Germany showed that carnitine promotes hair growth. Exposure to carnitine stimulated hair shaft elongation and reduced hair cell death in this study. The authors of this study conclude, "Our findings suggest that L-carnitine supplements stimulate human scalp hair growth..." They further encourage one to explore l-carnitine "…as a well-tolerated, relatively safe adjuvant treatment in the management of androgenetic alopecia and other forms of hair loss."
A report from the University of Indiana School of Medicine indicates that L-carnitine can reduce endothelial dysfunction, which is common in women with PCOS and is an early indication of cardiovascular disease.
One or two capsules daily.
