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.

B6 and Pantothenic acid to aid further energy production. Delicious liquid foram allows for controlled dosing and can be taken direct form spoon or added to beverages or health shakes.
