L-Carnitine

I have hypothyroidism but would like to start a slimming product which contains 4% L-Carnitine. Would you recommend this?

Dear Lee-Ann
In view of the article I wrote the other day about the negative effect L-carnitine can have on thyroid function, I would not recommend that you use any slimming products that contain L-carnitine. Rather lose your weight with a balanced, low-fat diet and plenty of exercise. The exercise will stimulate your sluggish thyroid.
Best regards
