A Synergistic Approach to Energy Production

A remarkably flexible supplement encompassing a blend of four distinct types of carnitine

Tring, United Kingdom, January 11, 2007 --(PR.com)-- Solgar Vitamin & Herb is proud to announce the launch of its new Carnitine Complex. This remarkably flexible supplement encompasses a blend of four distinct types of carnitine, L-carnitine fumarate, acetyl-L-carnitine arginate (ALCA), glycine propionyl-L-carnitne HCI (gPLC) and acetyl-L-carnitine taurinate (ALC). Carnitines transport fatty acids to be used in energy production and also appear to help remove biological waste from the cell.

New clinical studies have shown that as well as their individual qualities, carnitines have a remarkable synergistic effect. This unique combination has been shown to significantly increase an athlete’s peak running speed, total work load and VO2 max, compared to individual carnitines and placebo. Furthermore, the combination formula was much more effective than placebo and individual carnitines in helping adults recover from physical, mental and emotional fatigue.

Individually, each carnitine makes its own contribution to energy production. L-carnitine carries fatty acids into the mitochondria of cells, where they are used to produce energy in the form of ATP. ALC and ALCA possess a unique quality in which they are able to cross the blood brain barrier and are similar in structure to a common neurotransmitter, therefore assisting brain function and regeneration of nerve cells. ALCA may be additionally helpful for cardiovascular health by providing a source of Arginine, which helps promote health circulation. gPLC has a special affinity with heart cells and has been shown to be the most effective carnitine at improving heart function.

Carnitine Complex is marketed in the UK by Solgar Vitamin & Herb at RRP of £39.79, available from 2nd January 2007. For more information please contact either Marie Kendall or Sarah Hibbert on + 44 (0) 1442 890355 who are available immediately for interview, or go to www.solgar-vitamins.co.uk
