I just want go know if L-Carnitine & Levocarnitine are same drug or different? Which one we should use as fat burner?

1 Doctor Answered
They are two different forms of the same Amino Acid, but they work differently. The L-Carnitine helps the body convert fat into energy, so it's typically used by people who are exercising and/or trying to lose weight.
