Instead of reviving an old post, does anybody have any input about L-Carnitine?

I just bought some last week and im going to experiment.    I hope my supplement is high enough quality.  thats how these things fail, the science is good but the supplement is weak, and there's really no way to test for potency.  carnitine in particular is very prone to this.

just a heads up: don't take this if you have hypothyroidism. l-carnitine reduces the effectiveness of thyroid meds, it's used to treat hyperthyroidism.

I started taking it a few weeks ago and I've started to lean out. My weight hasn't really been budging; maybe it went up a little but I look leaner, less fat, seeing more of my hip bones and etc. From what I've read; it really helps people who are vegan/vegetarian because you get l-carnitine from beef and meats which I don't eat. So, since I'm lacking that it's helping me but just like all vitamins consuming more than you need will just end up peeing out anyways.

 

I wish I took some pictures. I really don't have anyway to measure body fat either. I have half a bottle left though. I'll try to get some pictures from now till the end of the bottle and see the difference.

L-carnitine works best combined with exercise, which isn't a cop out since this also helps increase lean muscle mass.

I used to use it when I was a bodybuilder. For about 3 months. It did NOTHING to help me lose fat!
And I read somewhere too much is bad for you!

Congestive heart failure patients have taken high dosages safely for decades. Life Extension's magazine ran an excellent and super-footnoted 4 page rebuttal when the media conveniently omitted the specific digestive risk factor interacting with high carnitine blood levels.

http://www.lef.org/m...arnitine_01.htm

The highlight:

"On April 13, 2013, a meta-analysis performed by the Mayo Clinic was released that looked at 3,600 patients and found huge cardiac benefits in those who supplemented with L-carnitine.1 This study represented the largest, most powerful scientific review of carnitine’s cardiovascular benefits to date.

The Mayo Clinic study found carnitine supplementation was associated with a 27% reduction in all-cause mortality, a 65% reduction in ventricular arrhythmias, and a40% reductionin angina symptoms in patients who had experienced a heart attack.1 The media largely overlooked this favorable report, however.

Instead, headline news stories were created based on a report released a week earlier that had asserted that carnitine (found in red meat) may react with certain gut bacteria in certain individuals to promote a compound (TMAO) that could then cause heart disease.2

These carnitine findings were based on a sub-study of 10 people.2 They were obscure, theoretical, and preliminary. Yet the media ignored hundreds of studies showing significant cardiovascular benefits to carnitine, choosing instead to use this study in isolation to bash anything that contained carnitine."

would it not be better to take something like BCAAs with a bunch of different amino acids?

BCAAs really are concerned more with muscle recovery than just the muscle building benefit of l-leucine. And then you have to worry about the wrong form of glutamine converting to ammonia, and it's a lot more expensive per serving than l-carnitine itself anyway. It's totally up to you, though.
