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.

Dietary strategies to increase endogenous ketone body availability such as the ketogenic diet (KD) have recently been shown to alleviate inflammation of the respiratory tract. However, the role
