    I read about this and apparently it helps the body to burn fat for energy. Is there any truth to this? Has anyone tried this and how has it worked for you? Is it safe? I try not taking supplements when I don't need to but this is intriguing so I thought I'd ask you guys and see what kind of experiences you may have had with it, if any. Thanks for any feedback!

    Carnitine is present in every cell in the body and is the chemical shuttle that transports medium and long chain fatty acids across the mitochondrial membrane where they can be oxidized to energy... It's required otherwise these fats can't be metabolized

    If there is any proof that supplementation could accelerate this I have no idea
