- Carnipure™ offers the purest L-Carnitine
L-Carnitine is a non-essential amino acid that helps to maintain overall good health by facilitating the transfer of fatty acid groups into the mitochondrial membrane for cellular energy production. It naturally occurs in red meat and other animal source foods, but we recommend supplementation to obtain optimal levels of this excellent amino acid. NOW® uses only Carnipure™, a special grade of L-Carnitine (L-carnitine tartrate) and the most researched form and brand, manufactured by the Swiss life sciences company Lonza. NOW® L-Carnitine is the purest form, clinically tested, and vegetarian (non-animal sourced).
Adult Dosage: Take two capsules twice daily with meals. Consult a health care practitioner for use beyond 3 weeks.
Each capsule contains:
Carnitine 500 mg
(From L-Carnitine Tartrate) (Carnipure™)
Veg Capsule (hypromellose, water), Cellulose, Magnesium Stearate, Silica.
