L-carnitine is a naturally occurring compound of the essential amino acids methionine and lysine. Tissues that meet their energy needs from fats - such as heart and skeletal muscles - are particularly rich in L-carnitine. Although L-carnitine can be produced by the body itself, it must also be taken in with food. Since L-carnitine is predominantly found in red meat, vegetarians and vegans can be more frequently affected by an L-carnitine deficiency.
Carnitine Complex contains L-carnitine tartrate for optimal gastrointestinal tolerance. In addition, Carnitine Complex contains vitamin C, vitamin B3 and vitamin B6.
