Mitochondria, the powerhouses found within human cells, produce the energy that vital tissues need to keep us vibrant and healthy. Healthy levels of carnitine support optimum functioning of mitochondria and your body’s energy production.
Maintaining optimal mitochondrial function is important for many aspects of healthy aging.
- Helps maintain cellular metabolic activity
- Supports healthy concentration of nitric oxide, which helps support already-healthy blood pressure
- Supports the brain’s natural defenses against age-related memory & cognitive decline
- Helps maintain healthy body composition
Protecting Cellular Energy: L-carnitine is an amino acid produced in your body. It plays an important role in moving fatty acids into the mitochondria of your cells. This is important, since as we age, there is a steady decline in cellular energy. The primary reason is that our mitochondria aren’t functioning properly. Healthy levels of carnitine support optimum functioning of mitochondria.
