In scientific terms a tartrate is a salt or ester of an organic compound, in this case the organic compound is L-Carnitine.
L-Carnitine is naturally produced by the body with 98% being stored within the muscles with traces also found in the liver and blood. L-Carnitine is a dipeptide that is made from the essential amino acids L-lysine and L-methionine. Although not technically an amino acid, it’s classed as a conditionally essential amino acid and as a result is often referred to as an amino acid.
The main role for L-Carnitines is in the production of energy. It helps transfer fatty acids into the muscle cell mitochondria, where the fatty acid is broken down, producing ATPs, the main energy source of the body.
Due to L-Carnitines ability to help the body utilize fat stores, the most common use for L-Carnitine tartrate is as a weight loss supplement.
Other benefits may include decreased muscle soreness, increasing recovery time, stamina, red blood cell production and muscle oxygen supply.
As well as being produced naturally, L-Carnitine is obtained in low levels by eating some meats, making it a great supplement for vegetarians and vegans.
