BACKGROUND Long-term administration of high oral doses of L-carnitine on the skeletal muscle composition and the physical performance has not been studied in humans. METHODS Eight healthy male adults were treated with 2 x 2 g of L-carnitine per day for 3 months. Muscle biopsies and exercise tests were performed before, immediately after, and 2 months after the treatment. Exercise tests were performed using a bicycle ergometer for 10 min at 20%, 40%, and 60% of the individual maximal workload… CONTINUE READING
