I am in love with the taste and quality of both l carnitine (a form of carnitine) capsules and l carnitine supplements for general health.
In a similar vein, I’m also in love with the taste and quality of both l carnitine supplements and l carnitine capsules. I’ve learned that the capsules work better in a pinch and the capsules are much more potent, so I’ve been taking both for the past few months.
Ive found the capsules to be a better way to take the supplement than the capsules and have found them extremely effective. They are a bit expensive, but are easily purchased at stores like Walgreens and CVS. Ive found the caps to be more effective than the capsules in the sense that a capsule, with its small surface area, is less likely to be absorbed than a capsule with its larger surface area.
They are also much easier to swallow, which is helpful if you don’t want to chew them or take them with food. One disadvantage is that you don’t get the full effect of the supplement, but since they are so good, I don’t think that matters.
I started taking 1,000 mg of carnitine (sodium acetyl carnitine) per day in June of 2009. This is the same dosage I take for my heartburn and arthritis (but more than double it). It takes about five days to get the full benefit of carnitine, but it’s the best supplement I’ve ever taken for my heartburn. It does, however, make me feel pretty lousy the first few days.
This is a good thing because since the beginning of 2009, Ive been taking a supplement made from Carnitine which is known to have several other benefits.
A month ago I was taking Carnitine as an alternative to the generic dose of Carnitax. I have had only one problem with it. I’ve been doing some research and it’s said that it is a good supplement for those who have had problems with my heartburn. I am now going to try again next month.
The last time I took Carnitine I developed some bad heartburn. I had to take it every 1/2 hour for three days straight. It seemed to do a great job of reducing my heartburn. When I started taking Carnitine I had to take it every 10 minutes for two days straight. Now its like it is just a normal dose. However because of the increased frequency it is a good supplement to take.
It’s a good supplement, but I still think it is a bit too high. The amount of Carnitine I take now is not enough. I would like to see the dose level increase.
