Hello @jdiakiw,

You are undoubtedly pleased with the results you have experienced after taking L-Carntine. As I was unfamiliar with this supplement, I found some information about it on WebMD. Here is a link to that information, https://www.webmd.com/vitamins/ai/ingredientmono-1026/l-carnitine#:~:text=L%2Dcarnitine%20is%20a%20chemical,and%20many%20other%20body%20processes.

The first paragraph of this article states,
"L-carnitine deficiency. Taking L-carnitine by mouth or by IV is effective for treating L-carnitine deficiency caused by certain genetic diseases or other disorders. It's approved by the FDA for this use. IV products can only be given by a healthcare provider." It appears that this supplement is used and FDA-approved for individuals who have a deficiency of this substance, because of a genetic disorder.

Were you tested and found to be deficient in L-Carnitine? How was the dose of 3 grams determined?

These are a few of dozens of studies. dr strum has been prescribing it for dozens of patients. he recommends 3 grams liquid . which is what he takes I also read a paper using various grams. Some less, some more, and it was determined 3 gr was optimum. It has also helped my heart functioning and there is literature verifying that.
