WHY BLACK WOLF L-CARNITINE & CALCIUM ?
L-carnitine is an amino acid that is produced in the body. L-carnitine helps the body turn fat into energy. The body can convert L-carnitine to other amino acids called acetyl-L-carnitine and propionyl-L-carnitine. But, no one knows whether the benefits of these other carnitines are the same. Until more is known, don't switch one form of carnitine for another.
L-carnitine is taken by mouth to increase L-carnitine levels in people whose natural level of L-carnitine is too low because they have a genetic disorder, are taking valproic acid for seizures, or because they are undergoing a medical procedure known as hemodialysis for kidney disease that uses up the body's L-carnitine. It is also used as a replacement supplement in strict vegetarians, dieters, and low-weight or premature infants.
L-carnitine is also taken by mouth for conditions of the heart and blood vessels including heart-related chest pain, congestive heart failure (CHF), and heart complications of a disease called diphtheria. It is also used to improve symptoms of an overactive thyroid, improve sperm count in men, and improve pregnancy rates and body weight in women with a hormonal disorder that causes enlarged ovaries with cysts, also known as PCOS.
L-carnitine is given intravenously (by IV) to increase L-carnitine levels in people whose natural level of L-carnitine is too low because they have a genetic disorder, are taking valproic acid for seizures, or because they are undergoing a medical procedure known as hemodialysis for kidney disease that uses up the body's L-carnitine. It is also used by IV as a supplement for people on a feeding tube.
There is limited scientific research to support the use of L-carnitine by mouth, by IV, or applied to the skin or eyes for other conditions.
How does it work?
L-carnitine helps the body produce energy. It is important for heart and brain function, muscle movement, and many other body processes.
Calcium is one of the essential minerals for our body that provides the formation and strength of our bones. It constitutes 1.5 - 2.0% of our total body weight. 98% of this calcium is found in our bones, 1% in our teeth, 1% in blood circulation and soft tissues and this 1% part plays a vital role. Because when these small amounts of calcium are reduced, the body muscles cannot contract properly, blood cannot clot and nerve conduction cannot be performed properly. This calcium level is tried to be balanced by the body by taking it from the diet or using calcium in the bone.
Calcium balance is especially important for heart functions. Normal blood calcium level is 10 mg. 5.5 mg of this is in the form of Ca ++ ion, 4 mg is in the form of carrier protein, 0.5 mg is in combination with phosphate and citrates
