April 2008 - Glycine Propionyl-L-Carnitine HCL, USP (GlycoCarn®)
for Human Health and Performance

Dietary supplementation with the naturally occurring nutrient L-carnitine has been extensively studied as an aid to improve fatty acid metabolism and aerobic exercise capacity, to provide antioxidant benefits, and to enhance blood flow to active tissues (e.g., skeletal muscle and heart). While multiple forms of carnitine have been studied and are currently available, Propionyl-L-Carnitine (PLC) has been shown to best support healthy heart and skeletal muscle function. A patented and safe USP dietary form of PLC has been developed which is molecularly bonded to glycine, one of the precursor amino acids to carnitine biosynthesis. This form is known as Glycine Propionyl-LCarnitine (GPLC) or GlycoCarn®, and is one of the AminoCarnitines® branded and marketed by Sigma-Tau HealthScience.
