The main metabolic function of Carnipure® L-Carnitine is to transport long-chain fatty acids into the mitochondrial matrix for beta-oxidation. Beta-oxidation is the metabolic pathway for using fat stores as an energy source. This pathway occurs in the part of the cell called the mitochondrial matrix, and L-Carnitine is essential for transporting the fatty acids into this space.
