L-Carnitine (L-beta-hydroxy-gamma-N,N,N-trimethylaminobutyric acid) plays an essential role in fatty acid transport in the mitochondrion. Conditions that appear to benefit from exogenous supplementation of L-carnitine include anorexia, chronic fatigue, cardiovascular disease, hypoglycemia, male infertility, muscular myopathies, renal failure and dialysis. D-Carnitine is not biologically active and might interfere with the proper utilization of the L isomer, and so there are claims that the…

It was apparent that l-carnitine notably ameliorated all biochemical markers and also mitigated the gross histologic alterations induced by paracetamol.

Functional differences between l- and d-carnitine in metabolic regulation evaluated using a low-carnitine Nile tilapia model.

D-Carnitine-fed fish demonstrates increases in peroxisomal β-oxidation, glycolysis and amino acid degradation to maintain energy homeostasis, and d-c Carnitine is not recommended for use in farmed animals.

Inhibition of Inflammatory Gene Expression in Keratinocytes Using a Composition Containing Carnitine, Thioctic Acid and Saw Palmetto Extract

The data support the hypothesis that the test compound exhibits anti-inflammatory characteristics in a well-established in vitro assay representing HF keratinocyte gene expression and suggest that 5-alpha reductase inhibitors combined with blockade of inflammatory processes could represent a novel two-pronged approach in the treatment of AGA with improved efficacy over current modalities.
