Can vegetarians develop L-Carnitine deficiency?

A vegetarian diet is very low in L-Carnitine but also in the precursors to produce L-Carnitine in the body.

It has been shown that vegetarians have lower levels of L-Carnitine in their blood. Reduced performance and rapid exhaustion of the muscles can be signs of low L-Carnitine levels.

Carnipure™ is obtained biologically by fermentation; it is not extracted from meat and is therefore eminently suitable for vegetarians.
