It is a branched non-essential amino acid. It can be produced by our body but deficiency of Ascorbic acid, ferrous iron, pyroxidine, and niacin can cause carnitine deficiency. L- carnitine is synthesized from two essential amino acids namely lysine and methionine. We can also get carnitine through diet, it is mainly found in animal sources. At the time of high energy needs in certain cases, the need for L- carnitine exceeds the production by our body. In that case, we need to take L-carnitine as a supplement, so it is a conditionally essential nutrient. Intake of this nutrient is good for the immune system, heart, and muscle health.

L-Carnitine is an amino acid derivative. It facilitates long-chain fatty acid entry into mitochondria, delivering substrate for oxidation and subsequent energy production.
