Carnitine for Intestinal Health

Intestinal function plays an important role in overall well-being. ArginoCarn® uses L-Carnitine for intestinal health benefits.

The intestines (or bowels) complete the process of digestion, making a properly functioning intestinal lining vital to overall health.

In a healthy digestive tract, cells are renewed every 3-5 days to maintain the lining, which lubricates intestinal contents, aids in nutrient absorption, and serves as a barrier to prevent the absorption of harmful bacteria present in undigested food.

ArginoCarn® Helps Reduce Oxidative Stress

When free radical production overwhelms antioxidant defense, oxidative stress occurs. Studies show that oxidative stress can contribute to intestinal injuries. ArginoCarn®, with L-Carnitine, assists intestinal health by reducing the harmful effects of free radicals.

Oxygen-derived free radicals are important components of gastrointestinal injury in necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC). In the present investigation, we examined the protective actions of L-arginine, a nitric oxide synthase substrate, and L-carnitine against hypoxia-reoxygenation (H/R) induced NEC in young mice. Young mice were divided into four groups: group 1 mice were subjected to H/R only; group 2 H/R mice were supplemented with L-arginine in the drinking water (2 g/l) for 7 days; group 3 H/R mice were given L-...

BACKGROUND: This study was designed to show the role of oxidative stress, nitric oxide and glutathione-related antioxidant enzymes in hypoxia/reoxygenation (H/R)-induced intestinal injury model in mice and to evaluate the potential benefits of arginine and carnitine supplementation. METHODS: A total of 28 young Balb/c mice were divided into four groups: Group 1 (untreated) was given physiological saline before the experiment; group 2 H/R mice were supplemented with L-arginine; group 3 H/R mice were...
