Manage a Pet’s Weight by Increasing It’s Metabolism with LiquiCarn
Although technically, l-carnitine is an amino acid, it’s actually more of a vitamin-like substance that plays a number of roles in a pet’s body. Supplementing with L-carnitine can help with cardiovascular conditions. But because of its role in fat metabolism, it’s best known for its ability to aid in weight loss, particularly when combined with a healthy diet and exercise.
With the heavy cat in mind, renowned veterinary author and speaker Dr. Robert Silver, DVM, MS, CVA has designed LiquiCarn, a leading-edge nutraceutical that enhances metabolic function. Here Dr. Silver answers some basic questions regarding the LiquiCarn formula:
Q: What Is LiquiCarn?
A: LiquiCarn is a liquid form of the free form amino acid l-carnitine. Our carnitine comes from Switzerland, which produces some of the purest, medical grade carnitine in the world. For easy supplementing, we’ve flavored it with our very popular bacon/liver flavor.
Q: What Are The Benefits of LiquiCarn?
A: I originally designed LiquiCarn with the fat cat in mind. Studies have shown how carnitine can help assist in a weight management program for an overweight cat or an overweight dog. Of course, portion control and exercise are also important components, but it can increase the metabolic rate enough so the body can become more thermogenic, more fat burning.
Q: Can LiquiCarn Be Used For Other Conditions?
A: Yes, there are other applications for l-carnitine. We actually use l-carnitine in my Formula CV supplement because it has a direct benefit to the myocardium. It helps for conditions such as congestive heart failure or cardio myopathy.
There can be a congenital deficiency in l-carnitine in the myocardial (the heart muscle) and a systemic deficiency of l-carnitine in skeletal muscles. By supplementing with l-carnitine for these conditions, you can overcome the metabolic problem that the body was born with.
