L-Carnitine is an amino acid that is derived from lysine and methionine and is essential for transporting long-chain fatty acids from the cytosol into the mitochondria for subsequent fat breakdown and energy production. Methionine is essential for the production of carnitine.
These two ingredient found in L-CARNITINE REVOLUTION™ can:
- Accelerate Weight and Body Fat Loss
- Influence Substrate Utilization & Enhance Fat Oxidation
- Improve Insulin Sensitivity
- Enhance Androgen Receptor Density on Muscles
- Increase the Rate of Recovery from Exercise
One study found that middle-aged males and females who supplemented with L-Carnitine over a 24-day period experienced less muscle damage and soreness following exercise and had less oxidative markers in serum after exercise.

L-Carnitine is an amino acid that is derived from lysine and methionine and is essential for transporting long-chain fatty acids from the cytosol into the mitochondria for subsequent fat breakdown and energy production.
- L-Carnitine has also been shown to reduce exercise-induced muscle damage, muscular fatigue, and reduce soreness.
- A study conducted by Volek et al. (2002) found that supplementation with L-Carnitine daily for one week in healthy resistance trained men was able to reduce markers of muscle damage after weight lifting. It was also discovered that biomarkers of oxidative damage reduced to baseline sooner than placebo.
- Ho et al. (2010) discovered that middle-aged males and females who supplemented with L-Carnitine over a 24-day period experienced less muscle damage and soreness following exercise and had less oxidative markers in serum after exercise.
L-Methionine is essential for the production of carnitine and creatine, which are important nutrients for the proper functioning of muscles, all cells, and the entire cardiovascular system.
- L-Methionine is also an antioxidant that can be found in meat and dairy products and in some cases may enhance mood.
- Lastly, Methionine is essential for the production of carnitine which assists in the process of converting fats to energy.
Q: What is the best way to take L-Carnitine Revolution?
A: As a dietary supplement, take one serving (1 Capsule) in the morning on an empty stomach with 8-10oz of water. For best results, take one capsule with each meal.
Q: How does L-Carnitine help metabolize fat?
A: L-Carnitine transports long-chain fatty acids (most dietary fats are long-chain) from the cytosol into the mitochondria for subsequent fat breakdown and energy production.
Q: What other MuscleSport raw products do you recommend stacking with L-Carnitine Revolution?
A: For weight and fat loss goals, we recommend stacking L-Carnitine with our IBCAA 2:1:1 and L-Glutamine, which can help preserve muscle mass and promote recovery during times of dieting or calorie restriction.
