Benefits of L-Carnitine with Caffeine and Chromium
L-carnitine is an essential biological molecule that transports long-chain triglycerides across mitochondrial membranes so they can be oxidized (“burned”) for energy. In other words, L-carnitine is the molecular “chaperone” for many fats consumed in the diet. Without it, these fats can’t be used for fuel and are more likely to be stored as body fat. Hence, L-carnitine is vital to fat loss and supporting fatty acid metabolism.
A recent meta-analysis of nine human trials found L-carnitine supplementation may promote additional weight loss (upwards of 1.33 kg), on average, compared to those taking a placebo supplement.1 In several of these studies, subjects taking an L-carnitine supplement lost nearly 2 kg more body weight than those taking a placebo. Doses ranged from 1,800 mg - 4,000 mg of L-carnitine per day in these human trials, with the research concluding that supplemental L-carnitine is efficacious for supporting weight loss.
While L-carnitine is found in various foods, notably red meat and dairy, most people only consume 100-200 mg of L-carnitine per day. Vegans and vegetarians tend to consume the least, at just a few milligrams per day. As such, supplementing with L-Carnitine with Caffeine and Chromium is imperative for getting a truly effective dose of carnitine.
Moreover, the caffeine and chromium are well-known to support metabolic rate and promote healthy insulin sensitivity, the latter of which is crucial for proper blood sugar balance.2,3 Combined with 3,000 mg of L-carnitine, the caffeine and chromium in this formula provides synergistic effects that encourage sustainable weight loss in conjunction with a proper calorie-controlled diet and exercise program.
In addition, L-carnitine is a powerful antioxidant throughout the body and has been shown to fight oxidative stress. 4 In turn, supplementing with L-carnitine can help defend against free radicals and other noxious compounds that accumulate in the body.
What Makes HS Labs L-Carnitine with Caffeine and Chromium the Best Liquid L-Carnitine Supplement?
Many L-carnitine supplements on the market are underdosed and come in an impractical pill form, which means you have to swallow multiple large pills at a time just to get an effective dose of L-carnitine. With our ready-to-drink liquid L-carnitine formula, you can easily bring it along wherever life takes you. Moreover, L-Carnitine with Caffeine and Chromium is a vegan-friendly product and manufactured in the EU at a cGMP-certified facility to ensure quality standards are met with every bottle.
As a nutritional supplement, consume 25 mL (one serving) of HS L-Carnitine with Caffeine and Chromium daily, preferably on an empty stomach before a meal. Do not consume close to bedtime as the caffeine can interfere with sleep.
