Ingredient Profile: L-Carnitine Fumarate and N-Acetyl L-Carnitine

By Jerry Teixeira March 12, 2013

Today we are going to take another close look at two more ingredients found in Cardio Surge Energy. We’ll go over exactly what these ingredients are and why supplementing with them is beneficial. Some of the simpler or more well-known ingredients are better understood, but ingredients like L-Carnitine Fumarate and N-Acetyl L-Carnitine are a mystery to most people. However, they are extremely beneficial to the athlete, bodybuilder or fitness enthusiast, so understanding what they are and are used for is important.

Both are amino acids, which are the building blocks for every cell in the body. They are basically the foundation for all cell growth, cell production and cell function. Different amino acids are used for different purposes, but all have to do with protein. Proteins are made up of strings of amino acids, with each different string creating a different type of protein.

L-Carnitine Fumarate and N-Acetyl L-Carnitine both help the body to transport fatty acids across cell membranes, making them readily available to cells for nutrition, energy and reproduction. Efficient transport of these fatty acids increases energy, endurance and strength. It’s also essential to muscle-building, as building and repairing muscle requires a great deal of protein.

L-Carnitine Fumarate is a stable form of L-Carnitine, which is an amino acid found most abundantly in the muscles of the heart and skeletal tissue. What this amino acid does is transport fatty acids across cell membranes, making them available for cell use. The more L-Carnitine there is available for the body’s use, the more efficient the process of nourishing the cells with essential fatty acids.

Taking a supplement containing L-Carnitine Fumarate has been shown to promote a healthy lipid (fat) metabolism, which is great news. It can help to maintain healthy cholesterol levels, improve muscle function and endurance and even limit fat storage caused by the inefficient processing of proteins.

N-Acetyl L-Carnitine has been largely studied for its importance to brain function, particularly the function of memory. However, recent studies have shown that it also promotes skeletal muscle cell function by increasing the metabolism of fatty acids. Like L-Carnitine Fumarate, it makes the process of transporting essential fatty acids through the cell membrane more efficient, creating a better supply of energy for the working muscles.

These amino acids are not only used to synthesize proteins but are oxidized to urea and carbon dioxide, to be used by the body for energy. Taking these in supplement form is a one-two punch of nutrition, as it increases strength and muscle function and mass and also increases energy. This makes them a very efficient and powerful addition to any diet, but most especially for those who train regularly and intensely. By increasing the synthesis of fatty acids, they help to build muscle and then help provide energy for that muscle to perform.

For athletes, the value of these two amino acids is great. They not only increase cell production, muscle building and muscle strength, but they increase endurance and decrease muscle recovery time. In addition, they are known to promote cognitive function. This is a side benefit that cannot be overstated, which is why L-Carnitine Fumarate and N-Acetyl L-Carnitine are two of the beneficial ingredients you’ll find in Cardio Surge Energy.
