Description:

L-Carnitine when first discovered in 1952 was named Vitamin Bt, however later research determined that the body could manufacture L-Carnitine so it lost its status as a vitamin. In order for the body to manufacture L-Carnitine, sufficient amounts of the amino acid lysine and methionine along with iron, Vitamins C, B3 and B6 must be available. 
Any individual with a deficiency of any of these nutrients is at risk of developing carnitine deficiency. Carnitine is synthesized in the liver, kidney and brain. The skeletal muscles and the heart requires a steady supply of carnitine in order to utilize long chain fatty acids as a fuel source, however these tissues cannot manufacture carnitine. So carnitine must be transported to these tissues from other organs by the bloodstream.
L-Carnitine is an amino acid derivative that is the substrate for L-Carnitine acyltransferase enzymes. These enzymes require L-Carnitine to carry long chain fatty acids into the mitochondria.
Once in the  mitochondria, these fatty acids can either be burned as fuel or used to manufacture a special phospholipid unique to the mitochondrial inner membrane called cardiolipin. Clinicians have  found that cardiolipin levels fall as a person ages. This very important structural lipid is necessary for anchoring a number of mitochondrial enzymes. The cells use both L-Carnitine and acetylcarnitine to restore the mitochondrial content of cardiolipin. 
As in any component of the body when the structure is altered there is also a corresponding loss of function. Health zones philosophical approach to nutritional support of the body entails providing the body the structural nutritional substances that it needs in order to maintain normal functions.
As scientists and nutritionists have studied L-Carnitine, it has become apparent that conditional LCarnitiine deficiency can develop. L-Carnitine deficiency can result due to reduced L-Carnitine in the diet, reduced L-Carnitine synthesis due to lack of building blocks and excessive loss of LCarnitine due to urine losses when toxins are present. L-Carnitine is found in high concentrations in animal foods, but not in plants. This means vegetarians are more predisposed to L-Carnitine. 
L-Carnitine, besides being required for the transport of fatty acids across mitochondrial membrane is also involved in the transport of branch chain amino acids into skeletal muscles. L-Carnitine also has roles in moving acids and toxins out of the cells and out of the body through the urine with some L-Carnitine being lost in the process.
