L-Carnitine + Fish Oil = Fat Loss

Well the equation is not as simple as that, but these 2 supplements combined pack a powerful punch when it comes to losing body fat. Charles Poliquin first introduced me to this combination at a seminar in Rhode Island back in 2012 & since then I have used it continuously with great results. L-Carnitine has been well documented in its effects on fat burning, however for carnitine to be ultra effective, you need to ensure you have adequate levels of omega-3 in the body. L-Carnitine is a potent fat burner as it is responsible for the transportation of fats into the cells to be used for energy in the body. By raising the level of muscle carnitine, you support the fat burning process, and because your body becomes more efficient at processing fuel, it will increase your energy levels.

So how does Fish Oil improve carnitines effects as a fat loss agent? Omega-3 fatty acids improve the health of every cell in your body if you get enough of them. Omega 3 Fish Oil increases the metabolic rate whilst carnitine helps deliver the fatty acids for metabolising. Carnitine is key as the fewer fatty acids that get into a cell, the less energy that can be burned – increasing your levels of Carnitine increases fat burning & also provide the cells with the energy they need to raise metabolism. Lift weights, do sprint work, eat whole foods & take carnitine with fish oil to drop some body fat!
