L-Carnitine IV Infusion For Men’s Health

Men’s health has gained momentum in recent years and it’s no secret that men often care about their bodies as much as women do. In particular, L-Carnitine IV Infusions are a helpful boost for men who undertake regular fitness activities.

What is L-carnitine?

L-carnitine is a biologically active nutrient needed by the human body to adequately metabolise lipids (fat). It is naturally found in the human body and can be obtained from animal products like meat, fish, poultry and milk.

L-carnitine transports fat into the mitochondria (our muscular powerhouse), ensuring that our muscles are constantly supplied with sufficient fuel. Similar to the concentration of calcium in human bones, the concentration of L-carnitine in our cells declines with age, leading to muscular weakness and tiredness. Maintaining a healthy level of L-carnitine keeps our bodies active and energised.

Why do I need an extra boost of L-carnitine?

There are several good reasons to undergo an L-carnitine IV infusion, for example:

  • Faster weight loss results, as well as an increase in the efficacy of L-carnitine in the body, which naturally converts fat into pure energy.
  • L-carnitine has antioxidant and vasoactive (promotes dilation) effects, two very important factors that contribute towards quick recovery after exercise.

Men who suffer from an L-carnitine deficiency may find themselves fatigued and unproductive without regular L-carnitine supplementation.

Can I take oral supplements instead?

Of course. However, as our bodies can only absorb a very low amount of nutrients in the form of concentrated consumables, a quick IV infusion of L-carnitine is not only more efficient, it is also more cost-effective.

Does the treatment take long?

No. One L-Carnitine IV Infusion takes just 30 minutes and can be carried out once per week. In order to get the best out of L-carnitine IV therapy, we recommend opting for a course of 12 treatments. Please visit our treatment prices page for full details.
