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). Our NOW® natural and organic Supplements are an effective way to ensure you and your loved ones are getting essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients for daily optimal health. Since 1968, NOW has been making top quality products that are tested to the highest standards to empower people to lead healthier lives. Our promise – what is on the label, is precisely what is in the bottle.
