|Everyone these days seems to be struggling with the fight against bodyfat. Instead of turning to unhealthy diet strategies, more people are leaning towards nutrients to lose that unwanted fat. One such nutrient, carnitine, helps the fight by carrying fatty acids into the cells' mitochondria where they are burned as energy. As a result, everyone should want enough carnitine in their bodies to burn the fats, instead of store them. Recently, it was discovered that a choline deficiency can can actually lower the carnitine concentrations in the body, causing an impairment of the body's fat burning abilities.||A study on guinea pigs demonstrated that the animals with extra choline in their diet, they had significantely lower bodyfat and more lean tissue. The choline fed animals had approximately 24 to 30% more total carnitine that the nonsupplemented animals. While people are out working hard to burn fat, it is no use unless the body has enough carnitine to feed the metabolic furnace. In order to maintain sufficient carnitine levels, enough choline in the diet appears to be equally important.
