What is L-carnitine?

L-carnitine is an amino acid derivative that plays a crucial role in the metabolism of fats. It helps transport fatty acids into the mitochondria, where they are converted into energy. This process is essential for maintaining lean muscle mass and overall energy levels in both dogs and cats.

Why does Edagrd & Cooper add L-carnitine to some products?

We add L-carnitine to some of our products because of its numerous health benefits, especially for older pets that may not be able to produce enough L-carnitine on their own.

By including L-carnitine in our recipes, we aim to support the overall health and well-being of your furry friends.

What are the benefits of L-carnitine for pets?

L-carnitine offers several important benefits for your pets, including:

  • Energy production: L-carnitine helps convert fatty acids into energy, which is crucial for active pets and those with higher energy needs.

  • Heart health: it supports cardiovascular health by improving heart muscle function, which is particularly beneficial for pets with heart conditions.

  • Brain function: L-carnitine plays a role in maintaining healthy brain function, supporting cognitive health in aging pets.

  • Body movement: by promoting lean muscle mass, l-carnitine helps maintain mobility and physical strength, especially in older pets.

  • Weight management: it aids in managing weight by enhancing fat metabolism, preventing obesity, and supporting a healthy body composition.

Why is L-carnitine important for older pets?

Older dogs and cats might not produce enough L-carnitine on their own. This can lead to decreased energy levels, reduced muscle mass, and compromised heart health. Adding L-carnitine to their diet provides them with the necessary support to maintain their energy, muscle mass, and overall health as they age.

How can I ensure my pet gets enough L-carnitine?

By choosing Edgard & Cooper products that contain L-carnitine, you can ensure that your pet receives an adequate amount of this vital nutrient. Additionally, always consult with your veterinarian to determine the best diet and supplements for your pet’s specific health needs.
