CARNI+ is a supplement of carnitine, well-known for its ability to convert fatty acids into energy.
The body synthesizes carnitine at liver and kidney level, using the lysine and methionine amino acids in the presence of niacin, vitamin B6, vitamin C and iron. Carnitine is famous for its function as a carrier of long-chain fatty acids to the mitochondrion that converts them into energy through a process called beta-oxidation. This ability to produce energy from fat deposits is sought-after by both athletes and dieters.
Moreover, carnitine contributes to maintain the Acetyl-CoA/CoA ratio inside the cells constant, optimizing the conversion of pyruvate and lactate into Acetyl-CoA and exercising an indirect antioxidant action in high metabolism cells, such as heart and muscle cells.
Carnitine has also beneficial effects on the cardio-circulatory system, since it lowers the cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood and raises HDL values, reducing the risk of fat deposits in the blood vessels. Carnitine has been proven to lower the level of the lipoproteins responsible for myocardial infarction. Another positive effect of carnitine on the heart is the improvement in cell oxygenation.
At nervous system level, it interacts with the neurotransmitter Acetylcholine, whose deficiency can lead to neurodegerative diseases such as Alzheimer's. Carnitine acts on patients affected by this disease, partly replacing Acetylcholine, stabilising the cells and playing an antioxidant role.
Carnitine seems to be useful also in regulating thyroid hormones, since it inhibits their transport and reduces its effectiveness and action on the cells that are the target of these hormones.
Finally, it seems to stimulate the production of testosterone, increasing the presence of androgen receptors and increasing muscle absorption.
Apart from these effects, in perfect harmony, in CARNI+ there is the strong antioxidant power of vitamin E.
