    What is the correct form of carnitine when combining it with fish oil for fat loss? L-Carnitine(as L-Carnitine Tartrate) or Acetyl-L-Carnitine or a combination of the two?

    I could be. wrong but I believe the ratio is for every 3 grams of fish oil, take 1 gram of acetyl-L-carnitine for fat loss.

    L-Carnitine Tartrate is better for physical performance while Acetyl-L-Carnitine has been shown to be better for brain function and cognitive performance. As for fat loss, oral carnitine has a very weak positive effect, and it's mostly in elderly populations. Anecdotally, I know some competitive bodybuilders swear by injectable carnitine (obtained from veterinary supply stores), but take that with a grain of salt as I'm not sure how much human research there is on that. That being said 3g fish oil + 1g carnitine daily is good for general health, blood flow, brain function, etc. Just don't expect miracle results from the combo.
