Efficacy of carnitine
Good morning all !
So there you go, I do a lot of sport and my goal would be to have as little fat as possible.
I don’t have that much fat, my stomach is flat.
I don’t need to lose weight since my weight has always been around 43 kg even though I am 1m58. My measurements are 76, 63 (on an empty stomach) / 64-65 (just after a meal), 82.
Your BMI is too low, some will tell me. I know it and that’s not the point.
In fact, there is something that bothers me about my figure. My size is not very marked, I find (the joys of girls fucked in a rectangle, I presume) and I would like to refine it …
The other day, I bought myself a bottle of carnitine capsules and I would have liked to know if carnitine, coupled with a fairly intense physical activity and a balanced diet, did indeed promote lipolysis!
And for those who use it, when do you take it? Because I don’t know at all! The morning ? Right before sport?
Here you are, thanks in advance for your responses
L-Carnitine destroys certain amino acids, therefore muscle, but not lipids …
Carnitine, the hidden face …
Numerous and in-depth research has currently enabled the lure to be lifted. burn unsightly love handles gourmet athletes,
it seems that it is the muscles that would be preferred to fatty acids .
this starisée molecule is seen removing their status “fat burner” under French law dietary products.
In a recent field experiment where two groups of athletes with hypoglycemia were given either carnitine or a placebo. The observation did not initially reveal any significant decrease in fat reserves,
but secondly, an accentuated degradation of organic amino acids (building blocks of proteins), at the origin of a weakness of the muscle structure and leading to weight loss, or rather lean mass (muscles). “
Okay. Fortunately I find out before I get into anything then!
Thank you very much for your answer and have a good evening!
Here is the little information that I could gather on
The body synthesizes the
carnitine it needs from lysine and methionine, two amino acids found in food. Carnitine plays an essential role in the transport of long chain fatty acids within the mitochondria (parts of the body’s cells). This process also requires the presence of vitamin C, iron, vitamin B6 and vitamin B3 (niacin) and several enzymes.This process, in the mitochondria, enables the production of energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ).
carnitineis essential for the proper functioning of muscles, including the heart, a muscle that is constantly in demand and therefore constantly needs “fuel”. The
L-Carnitine plays an essential role in the destocking then transporting fat reserves to “mitochondria”, where they are burned for energy production. A study has shown that the combination of L-carnitine (200 mg / d), chromium, soluble fibers associated with a moderate hypocaloric diet, facilitates the loss of fat mass (on average 680 g per week, from the 1st week ), while lean mass is preserved.
I found this information on this site
WEIGHT LOSS: WHAT ABOUT FAT BURNERS?
“There are many products on the market, with very attractive claims about their“ supposed ”weight loss-promoting property, and“ sharpening. ”
Carnitine is one of those molecules that is very popular. sports. It is mentioned to promote the burning of fat during exercise.
Current scientific opinions do not recognize this property, however, because it seems impossible to increase the concentrations of carnitine in the muscle, even by increasing the intake by ingestion of a supplement.
We should be very careful about the use of these molecules of the “fat burner” type, the virtues of which generally seem to respond more to commercial concerns than to a real scientifically established impact . ”
It is quite normal to be concerned about the veracity of certain information, especially if it has a commercial purpose.
However, we must remain cautious about the claims concerning the ineffectiveness of carnitine.
For good reason, research is still in progress, as this very well-known and serious health site refers
Improving physical performance. Carnitine is said to improve the ability to provide physical efforts in people with
heart problems , respiratory failure, heart failure or carnitine deficiency.
However, there is no evidence that this improvement also occurs in healthy people or athletes.
Preliminary studies have suggested that carnitine may increase the physical performance of athletes, but later studies have failed to confirm its effects. They indicate that supplementation does not increase the carnitine content in the muscles, nor the production of energy during exercise.
On the other hand, carnitine could reduce muscle stress after exercise.
|Usage médical. La carnitine, par voie orale ou intraveineuse, est utilisée, à titre encore expérimental, dans le traitement de certaines maladies. Ainsi, elle semble avoir un effet positif sur les personnes souffrant de certains troubles cardiovasculaires (angine de poitrine, maladie coronarienne, artériopathie périphérique). Elle en atténue les symptômes, améliore la capacité des malades à produire un effort et, dans certains cas, permet une diminution de la médication
La carnitine fait également preuve d’une certaine efficacité dans le traitement des neuropathies périphériques causées par le diabète de type 2. ou par les traitements antirétroviraux du VIH.
On the other hand, its effectiveness in treating the cognitive decline associated with Alzheimer’s disease remains controversial.
all the summary here
The request concerned the loss of fat, and, Passeportsanté, does not mention it, since L-Carnitine has no “fat burning” effect …
This starized molecule has therefore had its “burner status” withdrawn. of fat “by the French legislation on dietetic products “.
With a “normal” diet, it is useless to supplement yourself with L-Carnitine, like a lot of other things.
The extract of the article that I put above comes from Sports Medicine.
Good then !
A point on it:
L-Carnitine -> only if you play sports at the same time because after many studies we realized that the substance does not burn fat “like that” it encourages your body to consume more than that. that he owes during the effort. And it has the fault of burning a bit of muscle too in the process, but it’s frankly minimal.
I took it for two months I lost weight and also a bit of muscle, I mixed 2.5kg less on the machines (that’s nothing at all).
Regarding your problem, I know what you need: a good slimming heating cream so that you target the region that is complexing you and CLA (a little like carnitine but without side effects and not strictly dependent on it). ‘physical effort).
L-carnitine, basically its going to give you a boost, the energy it will give you is simply explained.
Basically it uses the fat already installed to turn them into energy or weight loss.
In my opinion you are not losing masses and I do not think this is a product made for you
In my opinion the little extra essential for a successful dry. It is the perfect complement to the classic fat burner. Now I will only recommend taking an isolated carnitine to a connoisseur because it must be well suited to the person. For someone looking to simply lose fat tissue, it is better to turn to a conventional fat burner first (a large majority already contain L-Carnitine to a lesser extent)
A connoisseur knows that L-Carntitine destroys AA but does not burn fat …
