Metabolism: L-carnitine is an Amino Acid which helps in the breakdown of fat cells. Green tea has been proven to increase metabolism and assist with weight loss. Use these with a balanced protein approach and you should have success. For quality sources, feel free to see my supplement page on website. <a href=.

Overhyped: Green tea is the latest in a long line of overhyped nutritional products. Claims include weight loss, better health, longer life, better endurance. Do not believe the hype. Yes green tea contains some anti-oxidants and phytonutrients, but it still contains caffiene which is a stimulant and has diuretic properties. Too much green tea is not good for you. L-carnitine may help certain people lose wt.
