A dietary supplement containing the levo-enantiomers of carnitine and tartrate with potential chemoprotective and antioxidant activities. L-carnitine L-tartrate increases fatty acid oxidation and reduces purine catabolism and free radical formation, which may prevent exercise fatigue, muscle weakness, chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy, and hyperlipoproteinemia. L-carnitine, the biologically active form of carnitine, is a carrier molecule that transports activated long-chain fatty acids (LCFAs)from the cytosol to mitochondria where fatty acids are oxidized, resulting in ATP production,. L-tartrate, a salt of tartaric acid, is a potent antioxidant. Check for active clinical trials or closed clinical trials using this agent. (NCI Thesaurus)
