L - Carnitine Tartrate is a unique amino acid, amino acids are vital to our good health. They are the building blocks of proteins, which make up our skin, hair and muscles and perform a variety of functions in the body. 

It is found only in small amounts in certain foods like beef, fish and chicken, which are, as we know unless completely organic and raised naturally, filled with all sorts of toxins, it’s safe to say that many of us aren’t getting enough L-carnitine in our diets. 

Most people who do not see results with L-carnitine supplements are probably not taking enough. Most of the scientific literature describes effective doses from 1 to 4 grams of L-carnitine.

Part of the Ancient Purity Hair Re-Store / Loss Prevention Protocol.

L Carnitine Tartrate is a vital part of Ancient Puritys Hair Health Program, it is highly effective for treating hair loss. We can perhaps say specifically for certain forms of hair loss which are due to insufficient cellular energy in the hair follicle. L- Carnitine Tartrate can be taken orally and used topically if you are suffering from hair loss. Taking L - Carnitine Tartrate orally is the easiest way re-produce the results found in the study, but within the Hair Protocol Pack, you will also see how when used topically with the other ingredients it will give you the best result.  

L-carnitine is a fat metaboliser, energy producer, and a cardiovascular booster. Just like any other tissue or organ, hair follicles require proper metabolism, sufficient energy, and flow of nutrients. L-carnitine provides all of this and more. In a breakthrough studyL-carnitine was able to increase hair shaft elongation, prolong the growth phase of the hair cycle, and prevent the cell death of keratinocytes (cells that produce keratin, the protein that gives hair strength). While this particular study was done using a topical form of L-carnitine, a nutraceutical form, for example as a supplement, may have even more pronounced effects, but Ancient Purity want you to get the best result possible and therefore have a solution to tackle it from every angle, suggesting topical and oral use.

In 1995, a Japanese group filed a patent titled “Hair-growing agent”¹, which “relates to a hair-growing (restoration) agent and a carnitine derivative having a hair-growing action.” The patent explains “as energy required for growth of hair, there has generally been used ATP which is generated by metabolism of glucose through glycolysis system and a TCA cycle. However, in male pattern alopecia, phosphofructokinase (PFKase) which is one of enzymes catalyzing glycolysis system is prohibited by male hormones to cause a state that supply of energy is suppressed.” The theory is that carnitine improves the energy production in the hair follicle cell enabling more hair to grow. The data in the patent looked promising. The shaved hair on the back of mice grew back twice as fast with the carnitine topical application.

hair re-growth study

More recently, as published in 2007², researchers cultured human hair follicles. They incubated the cells with very low levels of L-carnitine tartrate for nine days. At the end of that time, the follicles treated with l-carnitine showed significant growth of hair. The treatment also slowed follicle cell death (apoptosis) and it improved follicle cell growth (proliferation). It also improved local cell growth proteins in the outer root sheath.

The same group followed this in vitro study with an in vivo study³. Specifically, researchers completed a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled observational study of the topical application of the carnitine on real people with moderate-level androgenetic alopecia (hair loss). 51 subjects finished the trial and confirmed their vitro results, which were that topical carnitine application helps grow hair.

So we can summarise that L - Carnitine Tartrate is beneficial as a stand-alone method but when combined with the full protocol you will receive full effect. If using alone follow the instructions set out in the Suggested use section of this page.

Multi Benefit

In Exercise
Consistent evidence to support the use of carnitine for exercise performance has been lacking, according to the Office of Dietary Supplements, which cites studies from the 1990s up until 2005. However, recently published evidence appears to show potential benefit, according to a study published in the February 2011 issue of "The Journal of Physiology." The study examined carnitine tartrate supplementation on the exercise performance of healthy males. Researchers found carnitine supplementation led to 55% less muscle glycogen usage, 44% lower muscle lactate and other changes that resulted in improved exercise performance. Lactate is an enzyme that accumulates during exercise and can lead to fatigue, while glycogen is a storage form of sugar. These results suggest carnitine supplementation elicits changes associated with better exercise performance.

Muscle recovery / Weight loss
L-Carnitine Tartrate is mainly concentrated in your muscles. The significance of this is that the main function of this compound is to provide an extra source of ATP for this highly-metabolic form of tissue. Because of its role in mobilising fat to muscle tissue, the presence of L-Carnitine actually helps in improving muscle endurance due to increased energy supply. At the same time, it also helps in improving endurance by preserving muscle glycogen storage and by preventing the buildup of lactic acid. Because of its ability to increase mobilisation of fat, L-Carnitine tartrate is seen as a great weight loss supplement.

Heart Health
The heart is a muscle that relies heavily on fatty acids for fuel, and carnitine levels are typically low when you have heart problems. Researchers reviewed existing clinical trials to determine whether carnitine supplementation benefited those with heart conditions. They found carnitine reduces the development of angina by 40% and ventricular arrhythmia by 65% according to the results published in the June 2013 issue of the journal "Mayo Clinic Proceedings." Ventricular arrhythmias are irregular heart rhythms associated with a heart attack, and angina is the chest pain caused by reduced blood flow to the heart.

Brain health
Because of its unique chemical properties, acetyl L-carnitine (ALC) is able to cross into the brain easily, providing neuroprotective benefits. Besides aiding in fat metabolism, ALC directly stimulates the production of acetylcholine, a powerful neurotransmitter. Many current studies of L-carnitine and age-related changes in memory or mood have shown L-carnitine to benefit or delay those changes.

Sperm Motility
Infertility research has shown approximately 30% of cases to be directly related to the man alone, and not the woman. One Italian study showed that 78% of men had improvement in sperm counts and motility with 3 grams of L-carnitine daily.
