L-carnitine—do you get enough?

A deficiency in carnitine can be caused by an inadequate intake of animal protein, because it is primarily found in animal products, vegans and vegetarians are at a higher risk of deficiency.

Although many people take L-carnitine as a way to speed up weight loss and fat burning, carnitine benefits include enhancing brain function, preventing muscle damage, regulating blood sugar and increasing endurance as well.

So the vegans out there need to source good supplements for this beneficial amino acid or eat lots of asparagus.
