Is Now Foods L-Carnitine 500 mg the right cellular fat burning supplement for you? L-Carnitine is a non-essential amino acid that helps to maintain overall good health by facilitating the transfer of fatty acid groups into the mitochondrial membrane for cellular energy production. It naturally occurs in red meat and other animal source foods, but we recommend supplementation to obtain optimal levels of this excellent amino acid. NOW L-Carnitine is the purest form, tested, and vegetarian (non-animal sourced). It took more than ten years after legislation was passed for the FDA to actually get to work in establishing and requiring current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPs) for the dietary supplement industry. Not until 2006 did the FDA begin to phase in oversight for cGMP compliance.
