L-Carnitine plays an important role in the metabolism of fatty acids. It burns fat, increases muscle mass, controls appetite and improves aerobic capacity.
This Product contains L-Carnitine 5000 mg and Artichoke 5000 mg
Essential to reduce fat, increase muscle mass and energy production.
This product plays an important role in the metabolism of fatty acids in the transportation of long chains acyl groups from fatty acids into the mitochondrial matrix, so they can be broken down through β-oxidation to acetyl CoA to obtain usable energy via the citric acid cycle. Some studies show that oral carnitine reduces fat mass; increases muscle mass, and reduce fatigue. All of these effects may indirectly contribute to weight loss. One study suggests, as it is essential for energy production by mitochondria, L-carnitine may have a role in reducing ifosfamide-associated fatigue.
The total antioxidant capacity of artichoke flower heads is one of the highest reported for vegetables. Cynarine is a chemical constituent in Cynara. The majority of the cynarine found in artichoke is located in the pulp of the leaves, though dried leaves and stems of artichoke also contain it. It inhibits taste receptors, making water (and other foods and drinks) seem sweet.
This vegetable is of nutritional value because of its exhibiting an aid to digestion, strengthening of the liver function and gall bladder function, and raising of the HDL/LDL ratio.[medical citation needed] This reduces cholesterol levels, which diminishes the risk for arteriosclerosis and coronary heart disease. Aqueous extracts from artichoke leaves have also been shown to reduce cholesterol by inhibiting HMG-CoA reductase and having a hypolipidemic influence, lowering blood cholesterol. Artichoke contains the bioactive agents apigenin and luteolin C. scolymus also seems to have a bifidogenic effect on beneficial gut bacteria. Artichoke leaf extract has proved helpful for patients with functional dyspepsia, and may ameliorate symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.
