L-carnitine is best taken with food or water.

L-carnitine can be found in meat, fish, and poultry. It can also be found in dairy products such as whole milk & ice cream. Typically food sources provide sufficient amounts for basic health, but don't account for increased need for the amino acid in certain situations.

L-carnitine is typically well tolerated, but can cause nausea & vomiting in large doses. It may also increase sweating.

L-carnitine in large doses can be toxic, so keep away from children and consult a health care practitioner if you have any concerns about what dose is right for you.

Not intended for children. If you are pregnant, may become pregnant or are lactating, do not use these products without first consulting your health care provider.

L-carnitine is beneficial for both mental and physical fatigue.

Research suggests that carnitine enhances blood and oxygen supply to muscles, to help with exercise recovery and post-exertional fatigue.

Early research shows that taking eleuthero extract before and after drinking alcohol might relieve some hangover symptoms.

L-carnitine assists with energy and weight management by improving mitochondrial function and increasing cellular energy.
