• <h4 class="dechead">On One Hand: Recognized Benefits

    According to the University of Maryland, a patient should take between 1 and 3 grams of L-carnitine. L-carnitine has been shown to benefit heart patients, overactive thyroid conditions, diabetic neuropathy and chronic fatigue. L-carnitine is found in red meat and dairy products. It's also found in wheat, asparagus, avocados and peanut butter.

    On the Other: Dose Considerations

    Patients should avoid taking too much L-carnitine. Five grams or more is considered a high dose. Too much L-carnitine causes diarrhea, increased appetite and body odor. People with cardiovascular conditions, alcohol-induced liver problems, kidney disease or hypertension should speak with a doctor before taking L-carnitine.

    Bottom Line

    L-carnitine is a beneficial supplement that helps patients with several conditions. When taken under the supervision of a doctor, it can relieve symptoms and help treat these diseases and chronic conditions.
