Lamberts L-Carnitine 500mg 60 Capsules are provided in a form that is ready to be absorbed by the body without needing to be broken down by digestive enzymes. Each capsule provides a full 500mg of pure L-Carnitine, provided by 745mg of a compound called L-Carnitine L-tartrate. Unlike other companies who may label their product as 100% L-Carnitine (when it is only 67% L-Carnitine), Lamberts correctly produce in the UK to pharmaceutical GMP standards.
Carnitine acts as an antioxidant and has therefore been proposed as a treatment for various conditions. Antioxidants fight free radicals (harmful particles in the body) that damage cells and interfere with DNA. Antioxidants can counteract the affects of free radicals and therefore may help to reduce or prevent some of the damage they cause.

Carnitine is a substance that assists the body in turning fat into energy. The body produces it in the liver and kidneys and stores it in the heart, brain, skeletal muscles and sperm. In most cases the body can make all the carnitine it requires, however, some individuals may not have enough carnitine because their bodies cannot make enough or are unable to transport it into tissues for use. Conditions such as intermittent claudication or angina, can also decrease the levels of carnitine in the body, as can some medications.
