I am an athlete and have been told that L-Carntine will help give me energy... Is this true and what foods contain it?
L-carnitine is very similar to the nonessential amino acid carnitine. It performs some of the same functions, such as helping metabolize food into energy. So it does play a role in energizing the body through nutritional channels. L-carnitine is synthesized in the body from the amino acids lysine and methionine. L-Carnitine is available from natural and synthetic sources. It is also found in avocados, dairy products, and red meats (especially lamb and beef).
