Advanced Research L-Carnitine with B1 - 100 Vegetarian Capsules Advanced Research L-Carnitine with B1 is a quality health care supplement product formulated by Hans A. Nieper, M.D. L-carnitine is made in the body from the amino acids lysine and methionine, and is needed to release energy from fat. It transports fatty acids into mitochondria, the powerhouses of cells. In infancy, and in situations of high energy needs, such as pregnancy and breast-feeding, the need for L-carnitine can exceed production by the body. Therefore, L-carnitine is considered a conditionally essential nutrient. Dairy and red meat contain the greatest amounts of carnitine. Therefore, people who have a limited intake of meat and dairy products tend to have lower L-carnitine intakes. Dr. Hans A Nieper has achieved (during his lifetime) International acclaim in Science, Medicine and Technology. As reported in several International Journals, Dr. Nieper is truly one of the greatest luminaries of this century. In addition to his research, theories and promulgation of vacuum/space field Tachyon physics and technologies (Telsa), he was the President of the International Association of Space Field Energy Scientists. In Medicine, his discoveries of various metabolic substances orotates, aspartates, arginates and AEP compounds, which are necessary in cell metabolism, resulted in great demands for his lectures including the World Health Organization's Cancer Symposium and adoption of various Government Medical Authorities (in Germany) of several of his successful Non-Toxic Medical protocols. Dr. Nieper was also the President of the German Oncology Society. Advanced Research nutritional supplements are the progression of Dr. Nieper's commitment to metabolic therapies in harmony with nature. They painstakingly research each raw ingredient to assure that the highest potency, most assimilable materials are used and that they meet Dr. Nieper's Standard of excellence.
