I’m curious to know if anyone is supplementing with L-Carnitine orally with some benefits. There’s a trend in the last few years pushing injectable L-carnitine (levocarnitine) considered to be superior to the oral counterpart:
Yes, some love it. I’ve used it from time to time, but can’t say for sure if t does much. This particular blend is given at weight loss clinics for around $25 a dose, which is weekly. What costs them around $400 over three plus months cost them $60.
But, you’re speaking of l-carnitine only. I don’t see it hurting to try. It is mostly taken orally and at higher doses.
If you choose to take it keep an eye on your thyroid. It’s been known to cause an impact and if I can find the link I’ll post it (I don’t know if I saved it but I read it a few weeks ago, coincidentally).
Yeah I was asking because there are some concerns with long term usage orally. @iron_yuppie what was the impact on thyroid? Slowing it down or viceversa?
And, do you know which brand is the best for the oral form?
