BIOCARN acetyl l carnitine, fat burning, fat burning L-carnitine in drug quality
Levocarnitine (L-carnitine for short) is a substance produced by the body that plays a central role in supplying energy to the skeletal and heart muscles.
But the body does not always have sufficient carnitine available - keyword “carnitine deficiency”. A carnitine deficiency can not only lead to certain symptoms such as exhaustion, difficulty concentrating or an increased susceptibility to infections, but is sometimes also involved in muscle problems such as muscle wasting, weakness and pain, as well as muscular dystrophy and muscle atrophy.
Biocarn ® is used to compensate for a lack of carnitine. Biocarn ®make a valuable contribution as a complementary therapy.

Interesting facts about carnitine deficiency
Carnitine is basically available to the body from two sources:
- Body's own carnitine production Levocarnitine is usually produced in the body itself. More precisely, the organism produces L-carnitine from the amino acids lysine and methionine in the liver and kidneys - B vitamins, vitamin C and the trace element iron are indispensable "helpers" here.
- Supply of carnitine through food We also take in carnitine through certain foods. The most important supplier of carnitine is red meat.
In certain cases, a carnitine deficiency can occur. Possible causes of a carnitine deficiency can be:
- Certain diseases that impair the utilization of carnitine ("secondary carnitine deficiency")
- Vegetarian or vegan diet (insufficient carnitine intake from animal foods or lack of vitamin B12, which is required for the body's own carnitine synthesis)
- Increased carnitine consumption (e.g. during endurance sports, after surgery or dialysis)
- In rare cases, a primary carnitine deficiency can also occur: Here the body's own production of carnitine is disturbed, for example due to a malfunction in the liver or kidneys.
