Increases Male Fertility

Based on the high concentrations of l-carnitine in the epididymis, it has been proposed that spermatozoa, which require beta oxidation for energy, may require l-carnitine for proper maturation (Lenzi et al 1992). Human trials have found carnitine therapy (2-3 g/day) to be effective in increasing semen quality, sperm concentration and total and forward sperm motility, especially in groups with lower baseline levels (Lenzi et a I 2003). One trial also reported that improvements in sperm motility were only observed in the presence of normal mitochondrial function, determined by phospholipid hydroperoxide glutathione peroxidase levels (Garolla et al 2005).
