L-carnitine has been described as the one brain supplement that everyone should take. In this video, Dr. Andrew Rubman, naturopathic physician and author of Bottom Line’s “Nature Doc’s Patient Diary” blog, explains that L-carnitine is an amino acid that helps the brain burn fat as fuel and boosts cell survival after a stroke. In healthy individuals, it increases oxygen circulation in the brain. L-carnitine is safe and should be taken between meals with a carb or fruit snack for maximum absorption.
