Universal Nutrition CarniTech Citrus Cocktail
CarniTech is a fast-acting carnitine complex liquid. Widely praised as the best liquid carnitine supplement available, CarniTech is a natural lipothermic nutrient complex consisting of USP grade L-carnitine. For starters, every three tablespoons of CarniTech provide approximately 2 grams of the purest L-carnitine available. But what makes CarniTech superior to all other carnitine products is that CarniTech also contains unique carnitine co-factors such as guarana, ginseng, green tea, glycerol, and willow bark. CarniTech’s exclusive and comprehensive formulation makes it a true standout dieting product. By now the benefits of L-carnitine are well known. Carnitine has been lauded for its ability to promote fat oxidation; preserve muscle glycogen; reduce blood-lactate levels during exercise; increase endurance; maximize oxygen uptake; and improve anaerobic-strength output. L-carnitine accomplishes many of these benefits by functioning as a “shuttle.” Carnitine can transport your body’s long-chain fatty acids (the highest energy food fuels) across the mitochondrial membrane (the power plant of the cell) for enhanced energy production. Without carnitine, fats cannot be burned for energy and instead, are stored as bodyfat.
While carnitine is the foundation, four other key ingredients make up CarniTech’s pillars. Glycerol, a three-carbon molecule, has been used by athletes for years to prevent dehydration. Researchers theorize that glycerol functions like a kind of “sponge,” absorbing water in the bloodstream and keeping it there. When added to CarniTech, glycerol can keep you well-hydrated for those long cardio sessions. With CarniTech, you also get three additional herbal optimizers. Ginseng and guarana are natural stimulants which boost energy levels and reduce fatigue. Our select ginseng includes 25 triterpenoid saponins (ginsenosides) including Rb-1 and Rg-1. These ginsenosides can also enhance oxygen uptake, boost brain function, and improve performance. Guarana can further help control excess water weight and maximize your ergogenic potential. Guarana, by increasing lipolysis, can alter endogenous energy supplies, thus boosting overall performance. White willow can alleviate some of the pain and inflammation associated with post-exercise trauma. Finally, green tea contains polyphenols which are powerful antioxidants (research now indicates that athletes are at risk for greater free radical damage than sedentary individuals, so the need for antioxidants are greater).
