L-carnitine, when administered to young female mice, has been shown to induce a pathologic condition resembling human endometriosis accompanied by a marked degree of infertility. Thus, the use of this nutrient by young women may be a potential risk factor responsible for the onset of endometriosis at a later stage of their lives.
