L-Carnitine is an amino acid naturally present in the body, made in the brain, liver and kidneys. It is mostly known for its efficiency in aiding weight loss.
One of its main roles in the body is to transport fatty acids into your cells to be processed into energy. In other words, it helps the body convert fat into energy.
Supplementing with L-Carnitine will not only burn your body’s stored fat, it will also boost your metabolism and give you the boost in energy needed to power through your workout more efficiently, thus helping the body to burn more calories even while at rest. Furthermore, it facilitates recovery after exercising, leaving your body feeling less sore and less burnt out.

Combined with a healthy diet and lifestyle, L-Carnitine supplementation makes a beneficial addition to your weight-loss journey.

Boosting weight loss is not the only benefit of this widely disregarded amino acid.
L-Carnitine is an effective antioxidant, meaning it helps boost the immune system and hence improves your overall health. It is also widely used by health practitioners in the treatment of chest pain and erectile dysfunction.
Adequate levels of L-Carnitine in your body supports heart and brain function as well as muscle movement ; for this reason, supplementation is especially recommended for the elderly.

L-Carnitine is naturally created in the body, and is also largely present in our food intake. However, it is mostly provided by animal products, such as meat, fish, poultry and milk. In general, the redder the meat, the higher its L-Carnitine content. This is why supplementation is especially important for vegetarians and vegans.
However, oral supplementation may not be the most effective method because of its low absorption rate ; only 20% of the amino acid makes it to the bloodstream.

At Beauty Infusions London, our Vitamin IV Therapies are injected directly into the bloodstream, bringing the absorption rate up to 90%.
We offer L-Carnitine infusions either on its own with our Metabolism Booster for only £80 or as part of a more complete treatment in our Skinny Drip.
