Nutrex Liquid Carnitine 3000 - Product Review

In recent years, carnitine and all its forms have received quite a bit of spotlight in terms of its uses and its role in fat loss. The simple claim that had been thrown around was that it was this miracle fat loss tool that could melt away your fat like butter in a hot pan. However, a large number of critical supplement users and sceptics were quick to turn around and say that what had been claimed was not the reality and that carnitine was a useless supplement for fat loss. 

So, what is the deal?

Would adding carnitine into our supplementation stacks be useful or not? 

Let us break down carnitine into how it works and how you can find it a useful addition to your current stack.  

  • The first rather large benefit of L-carnitine is that it has been shown to really improve an individual's overall workout performance by lowering one’s levels of fatigue and blood lactate while simultaneously providing a slightly increased power output. (1) While on the road to your leaner physique, this benefit proves to be extremely useful due to the fact that when you are in a deficit for prolonged periods of time, your body will fatigue faster and your general performance output decreases. As a result of this, you burn fewer calories with each session due to lower energy levels slow down your fat loss. In other words, your lack of energy during sessions can be countered with this performance booster.  

  • L-carnitine may also provide a marked decrease in delayed onset muscle soreness (or the dreaded DOMS, as we know them) and increase androgen receptor density in muscle cells. (2) According to Dr Layne Norton, more androgen receptors in muscle cells may mean that your current levels of anabolic hormones like testosterone may work more efficiently, and your body can respond more appropriately to these hormones. (3)  Keep in mind that while on the cur, your testosterone levels are going take a dip as you gradually get leaner and leaner so keeping them a good level will play a key role in keeping your hard earned muscle while you dial down. 

  • A benefit from a strain L-carnitine known as L-carnitine tartrate has been shown to also help with improvements in your recovery rate by decreasing muscle damage and soreness received from intense training sessions. Healing up faster means that you can go harder the next day and keep your workout rate up to burn as many calories as you can without being held back by the need to spend more time recovering and horrid the soreness that comes with it.

  • Finally, it does actually aid with fat loss. A few studies have been released showing that carnitine does not benefit fat loss, but a very recent meta-analysis has shown that carnitine had an extremely positive effect on fat loss as a stand-alone agent. So yes, it does burn fat. However, keep in mind that fat loss shown in this meta-analysis was small. (4)

Overall, carnitine has a bunch of useful benefits when it comes to dieting down and helping you get to a leaner you. Even though its direct fat loss effects may be small, the main benefits it provides in helping you perform better, recover better and push harder are most definitely helpful. You work better in the gym; you get more bang for your buck and burn a whole lot more calories in the process. 

About Nutrex Liquid Carnitine 3000

Nutrex Liquid Carnitine is an extremely potent and concentrated form of L-Carnitine. This formulation ensures that you receive all the benefits mentioned above and that you feel it working. During my time using it, I felt as though my workouts were a lot more productive as I was stronger and able to push more. Additionally, the flavour I had picked (cherry lime) was quite enjoyable, even though it was quite strong as well.

Dosages

Nutrex Liquid Carnitine has a serving size of 30ml (or 2 tablespoons). This amount is necessary to guarantee that you will reap all its benefits. The flip side of this, though, is that you may have to buy 2 bottles as each bottle only contains 16 servings. But it definitely is worth it.

Rating

Overall, I give this product a 4/5. It has a great flavour, extremely potent, you can feel it working and the quality of the product is extremely high. It is definitely a recommended product to add to your arsenal.
