Twelve students with in apparent good health and fasting since the previous evening ingested 2 g of L-carnitine on one day and a placebo on another day in a single-blind trial. Six blood samples were taken during the 24 h following the ingestion. Their blood carnitine levels increased (the free form by 81%, and the total by 57%) to a maximum at about 3.5 h and then slowly decreased. Twenty-four hours after ingestion, blood carnitine concentrations had still not returned to their initial levels…

The data of this study suggest that L-carnitine salts have a similar bioavailability to that of free L-C Carnitine while L- carnitines esters have a lower one.

Pharmacokinetics of intravenous and oral bolus doses of L-carnitine in healthy subjects

The results suggest that the mucosal absorption of carnitine is already saturated at the 2-g dose, and the pharmacokinetics of single intravenous and oral doses of L-carnitine 2 g and 6 g has been investigated in 6 healthy subjects on a low carnite diet.

Dietary carnitine effects on carnitine concentrations in urine and milk in lactating women.

With the carnitine content of breast milk remaining stable for greater than or equal to 10 mo, the importance of exogenous carnitines throughout infancy is suggested.

Carnitine and acylcarnitines: pharmacokinetic, pharmacological and clinical aspects.

Previous research associated with the homeostasis and pharmacokinetics of L-carnitine and its esters are examined, and potential areas of future research are highlighted, to adequately characterize metabolic status.

Carnitine and Acylcarnitines

Previous research associated with the homeostasis and pharmaco-kinetics of L-carnitine and its esters are examined, and potential areas of future research are highlighted, to adequately characterize metabolic status.

Oral carnitine therapy in children with cystinosis and renal Fanconi syndrome.

Oral L-carnitine corrects plasma carnitine deficiency, lowers plasma free fatty acid concentrations, and reverses muscle lipid accumulation in some patients, and its use as therapy in renal Fanconi syndrome should be considered.

Re-evaluation of l-carnitine in chronic hemodialysis

This review article attempts to reconcile the complicated strands concerning the efficacy of l-carnitine in chronic hemodialysis patients one at a time.

Carnitine administration as a tool of modify energy metabolism during exercise

In an article by Veechiet et al. (1990) in this journal, it was shown that carnitine administration increased both maximal oxygen uptake and power output during exercise at maximal intensity. There

Effects of caffeine, L-carnitine and their combination on 400 m freestyle performance in adolescent female swimmers.

It seems that taking caffeine alone or with L-carnitine result would result in more lactate accumulation in 1 min after exercise, rather than the other way around, as shown in the findings.

Although available data on L-carnitine as an ergogenic aid is not compelling, under some experimental conditions pretreatment has favored aerobic processes and resulted in improved endurance performance.
