Increasing your Carnitine intake is a natural way to manage weight because Carnitine picks up fat and puts it exactly in the part of the cells where it is burnt as energy. Carnitine is an amino acid synthesized in the body from the essential amino acids lysine and methionine. Carnitine is essential for the production of energy from fat and also prevents fatty build-up around vital organs. It also helps to build muscle and reduces feelings of hunger and weakness.
Carnitine is also beneficial in eliminating cravings and increasing the amount of energy you have to exercise. Carnitine also improves the effectiveness of antioxidant vitamins C and E.

Add one serve (1/2 teaspoon) to a cold drink and consume one hour before exercise. Use up to 3 serves daily. As other amino acids contained in proteins may compete for absorption, L-Carnitine should be taken on an empty stomach without other foods or supplements. We recommend cycling the use of L-Carnitine, with at least 1 week off every 3 weeks.
For best results, use with ultra low carbohydrate 100% Isolate protein powder and Thermo. The recommended dose generally ranges between as little as 500mg to as much as 3 grams or more per day, depending upon individual needs.
For most people, 2 or 3 grams per day, taken in two doses, will be sufficient for either weight loss (fat burning) or increased energy (reducing fatigue symptoms). For bodybuilders and performance athletes, between two and four grams of L-Carnitine should be taken one hour before exercise.
