Along with eating foods that are naturally high in this amino acid, one can purchase L-Carnitine supplements. Before buying or using them, please consider potential side effects and reactions, and if necessary talk with a medical professional. This website cannot take the place of receiving professional advice, nor can it guarantee that taking L-Carnitine supplements will be beneficial in any particular situation.
It is possible to get L-Carnitine supplements in at least four different forms. One of these is directly as a liquid. Another is as a dry tablet. The third option is as a capsule. The final kind out of these four is as a powder. Do you have a preference of one type over the others?
Please see individual products for their recommended dosages. You may also want to talk with a physician or other professional to get advice regarding what your suggested or maximum doses might be. When browsing through options, tablets and capsules of 250, 500, and 1000 mg were commonly noticed -- this is not to say whether or not those amounts are the actual standard dosages. We cannot make recommendations in this area.
Some L-Carnitine supplements are flavored, such as with a citrus taste. You may find ones that contain other supplements, like alpha lipoic acid (ALA), L-Arginine, and coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). You may want to look for the L form, rather than synthesized types of D and DL.
