CARNIPURE™ – Purity You Can Trust

Carnitine (L-3-hydroxytrimethylamminobutanoate) is a naturally occurring compound that can be synthesized in mammals from the essential amino acids lysine and methionine or ingested through diet. Small amounts of L-carnitine are synthesized in the body every day. L-carnitine is naturally present in the human diet in a variety of food sources, particularly in red meat. A well-balanced, non-vegetarian Western diet is estimated to provide 100-300 mg of L-Carnitine per day. In Europe and the USA, however, dietary L-carnitine intake has decreased by about 20% over the last decade, mainly as a result of a decrease in beef consumption. Carnitine is stored primarily in skeletal muscle, but also is found in plasma (although in much lower concentrations. Biologically, carnitine is essential for the transport of long-chain (carbon chain length = 10) fatty acids across the outer- and inner-mitochondrial membranes (carnitine palmitoyltransferase I and II, respectively).

L-carnitine’s role in fat metabolism can be easily summarized: Carnitine turns fat into energy. More precisely, L-carnitine is essential for transporting long-chain fatty acids across the mitochondrial membrane for subsequent fat breakdown and energy generation.

Additionally, a sufficiently high concentration of free L-carnitine inside the mitochondria can maintain energy generating processes that depend on the availability of free coenzyme A. If there is only a little free coenzyme A available, L-carnitine can bind the acetyl-units temporarily and thus ensure that more energy is generated.

Furthermore, L-carnitine may support the excretion of acids, a function which may be important after strenuous exercise of for certain metabolic conditions.

Due to its fundamental role in energy metabolism, L-carnitine is typically used by the body to support functions that have a high energy demand. In this sense, L-carnitine supplementations play a role in heart health, male fertility, healthy aging, as well as for infants, pregnant women and vegetarians.

Carnipure™ is the purest L-carnitine which produced from the proprietary and fully backward integrated process invented by Lonza scientist in Switzerland. It directly produces the L-isomer of carnitine, the form found in nature.

Under the Carnipure™ brand, we offer the following products:

  1. Carnipure™ Crystalline (100% L-Carnitine)
  2. Carnipure™ Tartrate (68% L-carnitine and 32% tartaric acid)
