Bio-Carnitine are vegetable capsules with 250 mg of the amino acid carnitine. Also the content is strictly for vegetarians. The carnitine in Bio-Carnitine is produced by means of a unique manufacturing technique based on fermentation. This method that carries the 'Carnipure' quality stamp makes it possible to produce L-carnitine exactly like it is done in nature. The result is pure, nature-identical L-carnitine without residues of D-carnitine.
The manufacturing of Bio-Carnitine complies with the GMP protocol (Good Manufacturing Practice) and is also under strict pharmaceutical control. This is your guarantee of a high quality product with standardized efficacy, purity and quality of each capsule.
What is Carnipure?
Carnipure® is L-carnitine in an exceptionally pure form, manufactured to the highest standards of production quality and traceability of raw materials. This means that all batches of Carnipure can be traced directly back to their origin from the unprocessed raw materials to the finished extract. It is your guarantee of a high quality product with standardized efficiency, purity and quality in each capsule. The capsules, and the content of the carnitine is completely vegetarian.
What is carnitine?
Carnitine is a non-essential, water-soluble amino acid. "Non-essential" in this context means that the body, under normal circumstances, is able to synthesize carnitine in the liver and kidneys using the amino acid lysine. If the body was not capable of producing carnitine, it would be a B vitamin.
The body's own production of carnitine is assisted by another amino acid, methionine, and vitamin C. In addition, iron, vitamin B6, and niacin are involved in several enzymatic processes. The L-form of carnitine is the only one that is of value to humans.
Most of the body's carnitine supply is stored in muscle tissue, including the heart muscle. Normal seminal fluid also contains carnitine.
Our carnitine levels drop with increasing age.
One of the roles of carnitine in the body is its contribution to the mitochondrial oxidation of long-chain fatty acids.
75% of our carnitine is obtained from the diet. The largest contributing dietary source of carnitine is dairy and red meat, with lamb, game, and beef containing the most. Carnitine is only found in limited quantities in plant protein and for that reason vegetarians (and vegans) often have much lower levels of this amino acid.
