Carnitine, derived from an amino acid is found in nearly all organisms and animal tissue. L-Carnitine is present in food such as meat, poultry, fish and milk.
The body synthesises carnitine for energy by acting as a transporter of long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondria.
L-Carnitine is reacted with L-Tartaric Acid to produce this form of L-Carnitine L-Tartrate with improved stability. L-Carnitine L-Tartrate is more easily absorbed than other forms.
