Carnitine is a conditionally essential nutrient with an obligatory role in the mitochondrial metabolism of fatty acids and maintenance of free coenzyme A availability, a process which results in the esterification of L-carnitine to form acylcarnitine derivatives. Endogenous carnitine levels are maintained within relatively narrow limits via..
