L-Carnitine And Its Importance To Your Detox

by damien

L-carnitine is synthesised mainly by the liver and kidneys and is a major ingredient in lipolysis.L-carnitine is mainly synthesised by the liver, hence its importance in a detox cure.

L-carnitine is a major DETOX ingredient of LIPOXYCUT ERIC FAVRE because it is a powerful agent of lipolysis.

This molecule is synthesised by the human body in the liver (and secondarily in the kidneys) from two amino acids contained in our protein foods: lysine and methionine.

This process is not as simple as it seems.Indeed, this synthesis requires the presence of several co-factors: iron, vitamin C, vitamins B3 and B6 as well as certain enzymes.This is why L-carnitive supplementation is justified if there is an increased need.


L-carnitine has a major slimming function because it stimulates lipolysis.In a slimming protocol, an exogenous contribution of L-carnitine is therefore particularly judicious, the endogenous synthesis of this true "slimming molecule" being insufficient.

The function of L-carnitine is to facilitate the transport of fats from the cells where they are stored in the body (the adipocytes) to their sites of use, the mitochondria of the cell cytoplasm, where they are burnt, allowing the production of energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP).

This transport encounters a double obstacle: the membranes surrounding the cells, on the one hand, and the mitochondrial membranes, at the end of this migration, each mitochondrion being an entity in its own right, an organelle within the cytoplasm of the cell.

It is at this double level that L-carnitine intervenes: it favours the crossing of these two successive membrane obstacles.

L-Carnitine promotes weight loss

In the absence of L-carnitine, the mobilisation of fatty acids is like an obstacle course.Conversely, in the presence of L-carnitine, the cytoplasmic and mitochondrial membranes become more porous, allowing the fatty acids to penetrate more easily into the cell at first, and then into the mitochondria.

L-carnitine acts successively by promoting:

  • The disincrustation of fats stored in the adipocytes
  • Their mobilization (crossing of cell membranes)
  • Their elimination within the mitochondria where they are burnt

Weight loss is then accelerated by this destocking of fats.

This DETOX is a priority in overweight people, especially those who are obese.
