Jul 20, 2016 | by: Team A8

Tired of trying to burn fat and not being successful? If this applies to you, then I have your answer!

Start supplementing with L-Carnitine

fat loss l-carnitineL-Carnitine helps with endurance. I have been using carnitine since it came out on the market, not only for fat loss but for increased performance. You will see that a lot of products contain carnitine and you may think that it's just for getting you lean but actually it helps increase endurance as well.

Why is L-Carnitine great for you?

First off, when you ingest carnitine (in pill, liquid, or powder form) it starts acting right away by transporting your fat cells to be burned up as energy. What does this help you do? It helps you get into a ketogenic state! If you don’t know what a ketogenic state is, it's a fat burning state, where your body uses fats as a primary energy source instead of sugar! This is the state you want to be in if you want to get lean! So what happens when you take this product for endurance? Well, let's say if you go for a longer distance run and take carnitine 30 minutes before you start, your body will be in a fat burning state and while you are on your run, your body will be utilizing your own fat for energy so you can run for longer with out feeling fatigued! So now that you found a supplement that will help you run longer, you will be prepared for this spring running season. OK so now that you know that L-Carnitine is great for you, now you have to pick what form you want... Personally I love the liquid form. Why?

L-Carnitine comes in various forms - liquid, powder, and pills.[/caption] I love liquid l-carnitine because it's easy to take and you absorb it at a faster rate than any other form. This helps get your body in a fat burning mode as fast as possible and I also find that you get a stronger energy kick from it as well. If you are not a big fan of liquid, that's okay, the pill and powder form also works well and is extremely convenient if you're always on the go. My favorite products (in no order) so far are:

  • PVL Liquid L-Carnitine
  • PVL L-Carnitine Veg Caps
  • Allmax Liquid L-Carnitine
  • Allmax Carnitine Tartate Caps
  • SuperDrive by Gaspari Nutrition
  • Carnitine Core by Muscle Pharm
  • L-Carnitine by ProSupps
  • Acetyl L-Carnitine by Dymatize (which is also great to prevent Alzheimer's and Dementia)
