Dual Carnitine - safe weight loss with nutritional support for fat-burning and metabolism - build your energy, health and fitness levels.
Blasting Through Those Last Inches, Gematria's Dual Carnitine is a high performance complex of the amino acid L-Carnitine and the acetyl group Acetyl-L-Carnitine. It is designed for those who are physically active and looking for extra support to reach their fitness goals.
L-Carnitine acts as a kind of escort service for fat, moving it into the little power centers of the cells, called mitochondria, to be burned, generating cellular energy.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine better enables dietary fats to be converted to energy and muscle by facilitating the youthful transport of fatty acids into the cell's mitochondria.
Quite simply, without optimal amounts of Carnitine, optimal fat burning is not taking place. The combination of these important nutrients in our Dual Carnitine formulation provides an ideal “Plateau Breaker” for persons participating in a fat-burning exercise program.
L-Carnitine acts as a kind of escort service for fat, moving it into the little power centers of the cells (called mitochondria) so that the fat can be burned to generate cellular energy. Acetyl-L-Carnitine better enables dietary fats to be converted to energy and muscle by facilitating the youthful transport of fatty acids into the cell's mitochondria. L-Carnitine deficiency can make it difficult to burn fat even in the face of severe calorie restriction. Quite simply, without optimal amounts of Carnitine, optimal fat burning is not taking place.

L-Carnitine deficiency can make it difficult to burn fat even in the face of severe calorie restriction. Supplementation of this nutrient has been found to be very beneficial for:
* improving heart function
* improving brain energy and nourishing and protecting brain cells
* proper metabolism of fat and cholesterol
* protecting cells throughout the body against age-related degeneration
* resolving insulin resistance
Insulin resistance may be a contributing factor to several common health issues, including type II diabetes, dyslipidemia, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, sleep apnea, hormone sensitive cancers, and obesity. Nutritional intervention such as adequate mineral intake, and amino acids may be helpful in resolving insulin resistance. Research suggests that the amino acid L-Carnitine may positively influence insulin resistance.
Research has shown that L-Carnitine is essential for the intermediary metabolism of fatty acids. Carnitine stabilizes the cellular membrane and has shown metabolic, cardio-protective and weight loss effects with in vitro and in vivo research.
Supplementation of the nutrients found in the Dual Carnitine has been found to be very beneficial for improving heart function and brain energy, and for proper metabolism of fat and cholesterol. L-Carnitine has also been shown to protect cells throughout the body against age-related degeneration.
The effects of aging were dramatically demonstrated when scientists measured cell energy activity and respiration rates in the heart mitochondria of rats. Both cellular energy and respiration was depressed around 40% in the older rats. When Acetyl-L-Carnitine was administered, their heart rates became almost completely restored to the metabolic function level of young control rats. This study showed that the heart mitochondrial content of cardiolipin, a key agent necessary for mitochondrial substrate transport, was markedly reduced in aged rats. Treatment of aged rats with Acetyl-L-Carnitine reversed the age-associated decline in cardiolipin content. This newly identified mechanism helps explain why Acetyl-L-Carnitine is so beneficial in treating congestive heart failure in humans.
Additional clinical research on L-Carnitine has focused on the brain, where improved mood, memory and cognition have been observed in response to L-Carnitine administration. According to Smart Drugs & Nutrients by Ward Dean M.D. & John Morgenthaler this nutrient stabilizes cell membranes, protects and nourishes the brain. It inhibits formation of aging pigment in brain cells of lab animals thereby increasing life span by 30%. Its use in humans has been associated with increased intelligence and improved mood.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine provides acetyl groups for acetylcholine. It has also been shown to enhance energy metabolism at the mitochondrial level. and has been found to benefit many tissues including the improvement of immune cell function and the protection of nerve cells.
Gematria uses the latest advancement in L-Carnitine chemistry - a special process for coating the molecule to make it more stable to moisture. Without this coating, the molecule is very unstable to moisture and will self-digest on a spoon in open air. This new process not only greatly increases the stability of the molecule; the L-Carnitine per milligram of compound is greatly increased. This translates to a much richer L-Carnitine content to assist with gaining a foothold for victory in the battle of the bulge.
These advancements allow Dual Carnitine to act as assistance for those who have reached a physical or dietary plateau and are looking to break through to that next level of fitness!
Take two capsules per day. Best taken 30 minutes before eating or 2 hours after.
While regarded as a relatively safe substance, pregnant or lactating women should not take Acetyl-L-Carnitine. Acetyl-L-Carnitine should be taken with food to prevent stomach upset and may cause slight agitation if taken on an empty stomach. People with liver or kidney disease should consult their health care practitioner before beginning a program that includes L-Carnitine. Taken as directed, it is generally considered safe and without side effects according to the Physicians Desk Reference for Nutritional Supplements.
