L-Carnitine “Can Boost PCOS Health” Part 2

Yesterday we reported on how L-Carnitine may play a part in improving the symptoms of PCOS.

L-Carnitine is a naturally occurring amino acid which has a vital role in the metabolism of fat. It functions as a transporter of fatty acids into the mitochondria – the metabolic furnace of the cell which creates energy.
 
Researchers at Sapienza University in Italy recently studied two groups of individuals who had blood sugar and insulin metabolism problems, which are classic symptoms of the PCOS-linked hormonal imbalance called insulin resistance.
 
One group was on a low-calorie diet. The other group was on a low-calorie diet, but also took 2 gms of L-Carnitine twice a day for 10 days.
 
By the end of the study, both groups showed improvement in their blood sugar levels. However, only the group taking the L-Carnitine also had an improvement in their insulin function.
 
L-Carnitine is available in supplement form. Ask your doctor if adding it to your healthy PCOS diet would be right for you.
