Summary: Patients with heart failure were found to have reduced myocardial free carnitine levels. Oral administration of l-carnitine for 12 weeks significantly improved the exercise tolerance of patients with effort angina. L-carnitine is a useful therapeutic agent for the treatment of congestive heart failure in combination with traditional pharmacological therapy.

Key Takeaways

Carnitine is a nutrient only found in meat. When patients with chest pain supplemented with carnitine, their exercise tolerance improved. Patients with heart failure have symptomatic improvement as well when supplementing with carnitine.
