Integrative Therapeutics L-carnitine is an essential amino acid which can be helpful for heart function and the utilization of fatty acids by the cells. Indicated for use in dogs with cardiomyopathy and cats with hepatic lipidosis. Integrative Therapeutics L-Carnitine transports fatty acids into the cell mitochondria, where they are burned for cellular energy.
L-Carnitine is a dietary supplement containing pure L-carnitine, a vitamin-like nutrient derived from amino acids and found naturally in the body. L-Carnitine supplementation supports cardiac, renal (kidney), and immune health. The primary function of carnitine is to carry long-chain fatty acids across the inner mitochondrial membranes and shuttle acetyl groups out of the mitochondria. This complex process requires several steps and involves several reactions including esterification and beta-oxidation. Fatty acids are utilized in energy production in all tissues except the brain. In the cortex of the kidney and heart muscle, fatty acid oxidation is the major fuel.
