Abstract

The presentation examines the research looking at the role of carnitine supplementation for fat metabolism, potential weight loss, and improved exercise performance. Claims are made that supplementation of carnitine can help burn fat and increase performance. It has been hypothesized that the body should be able to work longer during exercise because of improvement in the transportation of long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondria where fat molecules are broken down.
