Abstract:

Interest in carnitine and its potential health benefits has surged over the last decade. Carnitine serves a number of biological roles, such as stimulating the oxidation of fat and preventing the accumulation of lactic acid. It is also used as a supplement for weight loss and performance enhancement. This book discusses the functions carnitine fulfills in human biology, with specific emphasis on its roles in skeletal muscle metabolism. It covers carnitine homeostasis and transport, the renal handling of carnitine, and applications of carnitine in human nutrition.
