L-carnitine supplementation led to a significant increase in protein synthesis indicating that the increased dietary fat oxidation in slightly overweight subjects was not accompanied by protein catabolism.
Can Acetyl L-Carnitine and Lipoic Acid Slow the Aging …
Thomas Whitfield, of Oxford University and Oxford BioLabs found that L-carnitine stimulates energy production and cardiolipin synthesis within the cell membranes of hair follicles.
However, primary carnitine deficiency, which is due to decreased synthesis of carnitine in the body or altered transport of carnitine across the cellular membrane, can occur in people of all ages.
