L-Carnitine “Can Boost PCOS-Health” Part 1

Insulin resistance is often a key underlying cause of PCOS. Reversing the hormonal imbalance caused by insulin resistance can help to improve the symptoms of PCOS and evidence is growing that L-Carnitine may play a role in bringing about that improvement.
Never heard of L-Carnitine? Well, it’s a naturally occurring amino acid which plays a vital part in the metabolism of fat. It functions as a transporter of fatty acids into the mitochondria, the metabolic furnace of the cell.
L-Carnitine is synthesized in the liver and kidneys from two essential amino acids, lysine and methionine, and aids in the release of stored body fat, called tryglycerides, into the bloodstream for energy.
An important side effect of a healthy level of L-Carnitine, which can be bought in supplement form, is the influence it has on maintaining normal levels of blood glucose and insulin that insulin resistance often disrupts.
Consult your doctor before deciding whether L-Carnitine supplements are right for you.
Details tomorrow on a new study that showed the difference L-Carnitine can have on two classic symptoms of PCOS.
