L-CARNITINE

Carnitine, also known as Acetyl-l-carnitine or L-carnitine, is an amino acid that your body uses to turn fat into energy. Amino acids are the basic components of proteins, a major source of cell wall strength and muscle-building. Most people are able to synthesize an adequate amount of L-carnitine from their diets. Some people, however, are deficient in this necessary micronutrient and may need to take carnitine as a supplement. If you’re one of those people, talk to your doctor about getting the right supplement in the right dosage.

– Heart and Vascular Health benefits –

If you have chronic stable angina, a number of studies have shown that L-carnitine supplements can help control your symptoms, allowing you to do more exercise with less pain. According to the Linus Pauling Institute, researchers have also examined the use of L-carnitine following myocardial infarction, or MI, a type of heart attack, and for heart failure. The results for people who had an MI were mixed, but if you have heart failure, a certain kind of L-carnitine supplement may improve your exercise tolerance. All the studies were done on people who were using L-carnitine supplements in addition to other medical therapies, so if you have heart disease, consult your physician before taking this or any other supplement.

BLACK TEA

Black tea contains a number of antioxidants, which are compounds that help the body fight free radicals (chemical by-products known to damage DNA). These antioxidants include quercetin, a substance said to combat inflammation and support healthyimmune function.

To date, research on black tea’s cardiovascular benefits has yielded mixed results. For instance, a 2009 review of nine previously published studies (including a total of nearly 195,000 participants) concluded that drinking three cups of black or green tea daily reduced risk of stroke by 21 percent. However, a 2007 study of 31 adults (ages 55 and older) found that six months of black-tea consumption did not significantly influence any cardiovascular risk factors (such as inflammation and systolic blood pressure). Both the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine and the National Institutes of Health point to this study as evidence that black tea may have no impact on cardiovascular health.
