The supplement world is a tricky place. So many herbs, amino acids, and powders to make your mind spin. Plus the FDA basically allows free reign to companies without any responsibility to back up their products claims. On a daily basis, I take 6 supplements, that’s it. They are ones I have studied, used for years, and know they are worth the money. The first one I would like to talk about is the one I love the most. I have been taking this supplement on and off for six years. I have found that it works best in conjunction with diet and exercise (as most supplements do) and can be very beneficial for those looking for some extra helping the fat loss department. Here are the following benefits to L-Carnitine
- KEEPS YOU LEAN
If you are looking to get lean, then this is the amino acid you need. L-carnitine transfers long-chain fatty acids, such as triglycerides into mitochondria, where they may be oxidized to produce energy. Carnitine has also been shown to reduce fatigue and serve as an appetite suppressant as well. It not only will help keep your body from storing fat, but it will increase your aerobic capacity to help you burn more calories.
- FIGHTS VISCERAL BELLY FAT
Visceral belly fat can be very hard to lose once you’ve got it. It can cause numerous health problems, mainly increased risk for heart attacks. Visceral belly fat can lead to fat gain around the organs such as the liver and heart, thus decreasing the functions of both of these organs. Raising carnation levels can help combat this by burning fat, which has the effect of taking triglycerides and low density lipoproteins out of the bloodstream so they don’t build up causing high cholesterol.

As you can see, this supplement has many benefits, but the one that I have really noticed is the decrease in thigh fat. My body really likes to store fat in my thigh area, and I have had to work very hard to lose fat in that area. I started noticing a big difference about two month I take a half a teaspoon a day. Try it out and let me know what you think!
