L-carnitine, sometimes known as levocarnitine, is best known for its ability to help your body transform fats into usable energy. It's involved in the energy production process, making sure your cells' engines (mitochondria) burn those fats efficiently.


While your body can create L-carnitine on its own, some may need an extra boost, especially if you follow a vegan diet or face genetic challenges in producing enough. That's where supplements come in! For all of its hormone-related health benefits*, L-carnitine isn't talked about enough. Pair this with its versatility, and you have one of the most underrated vitamins out there.

Ingredients (per serve): N-acetyl L-carnitine (1.5g).

L-Carnitine may:


  • Improve insulin sensitivity in PCOS, helping to lower insulin resistance*
  • Support metabolic health by reducing cholesterol & triglycerides*
  • Positively affect body weight, body mass index (BMI), and body circumference*
  • Regulate menstrual cycles*
  • Reduce stress levels*
  • Safe whilst TTC
  • Pregnancy & Breastfeeding Safe

Tastes AWFUL!

The taste is so bad that it made me feel like I was ingesting some kind of chemical...very off putting. I took it once and couldn't continue. I was also turned off that they provide a scooper w/o the proper measurements....what's the point of that? Half a scoop?? Stop it! Just include a scooper w/ the proper dosage.

Not the same

Recently the formulation has changed on this product. The taste is now awful and it curdled my coffee. Putting it in tea wasn’t great either. Water is the only way to drink this now, and it’s still bad. The “half scoop” serving instructions made me do some math and saw that it was half a teaspoon. Not a big deal, but I cannot do the taste. Before the formulation change, the product had no taste. Even though I did see results with the former formulation, I will not be repurchasing this one. Had it for a little over a month now and have only used it a handful of times.

Terrible

I have been using this product for over 9 months and have noticed barely any changes. In addition, the formula has changed recently and is all but inedible. The product has taken on a rancid - spoiled milk taste. According to customer service this marks a high quality product, but now I’m left wondering if the other product I had been purchasing wasn’t any good. I’ve never had a problem with the company, but after how I was treated by customer service, I will be taking my business else where.

Could be better

I just started taking this, so I can't rate based on effectiveness. But I have qualms. 1. Why is the dosage 1/2 scoop? Why isn't the scoop adjusted in size to accommodate or adjust the formula to where it should be 1 full scoop? Do you know how hard this is to regulate? 2. This morning i added it to my coffee and it curdled it. So I wasted a dose and got sick. So not sure why this happened, bit I will be solely adding it to water from now on.
