How can L-Carnitine improve muscle mass and definition if it does not contain protein or some sort of calorific advantage?
L-Carnitine improves the efficiency of energy turn over by mobilizing fat stores, making glucose readily available in the cells to make energy. During hard work, normal glucose metabolism often does not provide enough energy and other substrates are used. Improving glucose metabolism not only spares these other substrates which are required for muscle growth and repair, but also reduces the number of harmful toxins produced during hard work so less muscle damage occurs.
