L-Carnitine is a vitamin-like compound critical to the transport of fatty acids into the mitochondria for energy production. The majority of research has concentrated on its uses for various cardiovascular diseases, enhancing physical performance, kidney disease and Alzheimer’s disease and age-related senility. Carnitine is available in several forms but L-Carnitine (base) is the best-studied form of this compound. Its effects on bone mass have been studied with favourable results. Carnitine concentration in cells diminishes with age and affects fatty acid metabolism in various tissues. Particularly effected (adversely) are bones which require the continuous reconstructive and metabolic functions of osteoblasts for maintenance of bone mass. There is a close correlation between osteoblast activity and osteocalcin plasma levels. Carnitine has been shown to increase serum osteocalcin concentrations and thereby osteoblast activity.

Also L-Carnitine exerts a substantial antioxidant action and provides a protective effect against lipid peroxidation of phospholipid membranes and against oxidative stress induced at the myocardial and endothelial cell level. For diabetes, one study showed L-Carnitine improved glucose disposal among 15 patients with type II diabetes and 20 healthy volunteers. Glucose storage increased between both groups, but glucose oxidation increased only in the diabetic group. Finally, glucose uptake increased about 8% for both.
