In this review Pekala notes:
(a) L-carnitine is used for energy production by the human body.
(b) L-carnitine has been proposed as a treatment for many conditions, i.e. heart failure, angina and weight loss.
(c) Red meats, such as beef and lamb, are the best choices for adding carnitine into the diet. However good carnitine sources also include fish, poultry and milk.
