For Huntington’s Disease:
Although this is used traditionally for the support of neurological conditions, one poorly designed preliminary clinical study reported that L-acetyle-carnitine possesses neither efficacy nor toxicity for patients with Huntington disease. Further trials are needed to help determine the effectivity of L-carnatine in people with neurological disorders.
Early research on the use of L-carnatine for Rett’s syndrome has produced promising results. However, additional research is needed before a firm conclusion can be made.
Avoid this if you have a known allergy or hypersensitivity to carnitine. Use cautiously with peripheral vascular disease, high blood pressure, alcohol-induced liver cirrhosis, or diabetes. Use cautiously in low birth weight infants and people on hemodialysis. Use cautiously if you’re taking anticoagulants (blood thinners), beta-blockers, or calcium channel blockers.
Avoid using it if you’re pregnant or if you’re breastfeeding.
