L-Carnitine

L-Carnitine is an amino acid which has a role to play in the body's fat metabolism process. L-Carnitine transports fatty acids to the mitochondria, which is where they are essentially burned as fuel. This amino acid naturally occurs, although it can also be bio-synthesized from two other ones. In addition to being found in a wide range of foods, it is also commonly available as a dietary supplement.
