Los Angeles, CA, June 28, 2005 — Los Angeles-based Jarrow Formulas’ has introduced CarnitALL™ the first full-spectrum carnitine combination comprised of L-Carnitine Fumarate, Ester Carnitine™ (GPLC: Glycine Propionyl-L-Carnitine), ALCA™ (Acetyl-L-Carnitine Arginate) and Acetyl-L-Carnitine Taurinate to impact various body tissues with the benefits of carnitine.
“All carnitine forms do not exert the same effects, a common mistake that can prevent the full utilization of these specialized forms of carnitine,” explains Sid Shastri, M.Sc., Vice President, Product Development for Jarrow Formulas’. “Consider that ordinary L-carnitine has weak acetylcholine activity whereas acetyl-l-carnitine has powerful cholinergic (brain neurotransmitter) effects. Also, Jarrow Formulas’ is the first company to bring to the market Ester Carnitine™, the carnitine derivative that is currently undergoing a clinical trial spearheaded by Dr. Rick Bloomer at the University of Memphis. Ester Carnitine™ is comprised of Propionyl-l-carnitine, which is proven to be a form of carnitine that is particularly active for muscular tissue. The CarnitALL™ product will be the first carnitine product to specifically address a broad range of tissues, including brain, muscle, and other tissues.”
Also, CarnitALL™ contains ALCA™ and Acetyl-L-Carnitine Taurinate, which is a novel molecular combination of the amino acids Acetyl-L-Carnitine with L-Arginine and Taurine, respectively.
These novel L-Carnitine molecules are from Sigma-tau HealthScience and part of their family of L-Carnitine products known as AminoCarnitines™, providing 17 different forms of carnitine.
“Once again, Jarrow Formulas’ steps to the forefront with another novel, product that contains an exciting synergistic combination of multiple forms of carnitine and AminoCarnitines™,” says Jon David Szuch, National Sales Manager North America for Sigma-tau HealthScience. “CanitALL™ provides an exceptional, unique blend of 4 forms of carnitine for cross-functional performance, unmatched by any carnitine product in the current nutritional supplement marketplace”
