MAN Sports is a supplements company that specialises in bodybuilding products such as protein powders. Based in Dallas Texas and founded in 2012, it is becoming a well known brand which sells directly from the official website with some products available from independent retailers as well as Amazon. One of the key features about MAN Sports is the choice of crazy flavours available.
MAN Sports L-Carnitine 1500 is a liquid L-Carnitine supplement that contains 1500mg of the active ingredient per serving. L-Carnitine looks to be an effective aid to muscle building and recovery, and although it requires further research you may find that it is worth a try. MAN Sports L-Carnitine 1500 is expensive compared to other carnitine supplements on the market, but it comes in a choice of appealing sounding flavors so you may feel it is worth the added expense. That said we have been unable to find anyone who has actually taken it, so at the time of writing it does not seem very popular.
Potential side effects to L-Carnitine supplements include; nausea, vomiting, stomach upsets, heartburn, diarrhoea, fishy body odour including fishy smelling breath and urine, and seizures.
You need to speak to your doctor before taking L-Carnitine if you have an underlying medical condition or are taking prescription medication, because it may cause drug interactions.
MAN Sports L-Carnitine 1500 is expensive when compared to many other similar looking liquid supplements on the market. We have seen it on sale elsewhere for around $13.00 so it is pricy by comparison.
1 x bottle of MAN Sports L-Carnitine contains 31 servings and costs $24.99 if you buy direct from the MAN Sports website. You choose your flavor at the point of sale. Shipping is also calculated at the point of sale.
MAN Sports L-Carnitine 1500 is sometimes on sale via Amazon USA but at the time of writing is not available. The easiest way to buy is direct from the official MAN Sports website.
MAN Sports L-Carnitine 1500 is a pretty standard looking L-Carnitine supplement but as it comes in a choice of appealing flavors, you may feel that it is worth choosing this one over the many other liquid L-Carnitine supplements on the market. It is pricier than most too, but if cost is not an issue and your supplement bill is not already going through the roof you may feel that this one worth a try.
The scientific evidence into L-Carnitine supplementation for fat burning, muscle building, and sports recovery looks very promising, but it is important to remember that nothing is strictly proven. In addition some evidence suggests you need to take it for at least 6 months before effects are noticeable, so take this and you could be in for a long haul before anything happens.
MAN Sports L-Carnitine 1500 does not seem very popular. Whether this is because the brand is unpopular or because people just don’t see the need for L-Carnitine is unknown. One thing is sure, people are not flocking to buy MAN Sports L-Carnitine 1500 in great numbers and the fact that it is no longer on sale via Amazon seems to suggest it has a very limited appeal.
Overall, we do not recommend MAN Sports L-Carnitine 1500 to our readers.
MAN Sports L-Carnitine 1500 is a liquid supplement that you can drink undiluted as a shot or add to juice or water. It comes in a choice of crazy flavours; Lemon Drop, Rainbow Sherbet, Glacier Blue Razz, and Mango.
MAN Sports L-Carnitine 1500 contains just one active ingredient, which is as you have probably guessed is L-Carnitine and it delivers 1500mg per serving. We do love a supplement that tells you exactly what it does on the tin!
L-Carnitine is often described as an amino acid but is in fact closely related to B vitamins. It is naturally present in the body and formed in the kidneys and liver but stored in the muscles and the heart. Its role in the body is to transport fat into the cells (Michondria) where it can be burned for fuel. If you lack adequate L-Carnitine it can lead to muscle wasting and fatigue.
Although L-Carnitine is manufactured by the body, you can also obtain it from diet as it in red meat and dairy products. In addition supplements may be effective for bodybuilders.
L-Carnitine is supposed to help the body burn fat more efficiently and use less muscle glycogen during exercise. It may help improve recovery time and throughout exercise seems to enhance nitric oxide in blood, improving blood flow to muscles. Some research suggests it may increase testosterone levels as well.
MAN Sports L-Carnitine 1500 is not a stimulant so it can be combined with fat burner supplements if wanted. The MAN Sports product information advises that you stack this supplement with MAN Scorch powder or other MAN products such as MAN CLA Powder or similar.That said many body building experts advise that you stack L-Carnitine with carbs.
We have covered numerous MAN supplements in previous reviews. These include MAN CLA Powder which featured on our sister site Diet Pills Watchdog. We have also reviewed MAN Sports ISO Protein, and many other supplements and powders aimed at the bodybuilding market.
The product information explains the role of L-Carnitine in the body,
“L-Carnitine is an amino acid that helps convert fatty acids to be used as a fuel source (which promotes muscular energy). This process not only promotes muscular energy but also fat loss and lean muscle growth. L-Carnitine is stimulant free and perfect to stack alongside a stimulant fat burner and other weight management products to enhance results.”
The flavours are also described,
“Delicious flavors – L-Carnitine Liquid isn’t just another liquid carnitine on the market in boring Fruit Punch and Vanilla… we took these flavors to the next level in typical MAN Sports fashion! You gotta enjoy what you’re drinking daily if you want to stick to your supplement regimen and get results! Try all 4 incredible flavors – Rainbow Sherbet, Glacier Blue Razz, Lemondrop and Mango!”
All this sounds good but we would have liked to have seen some links to clinical evidence to prove these claims.
This supplement contains 1500mg of L-Carnitine per serving. According to the National Institute of Health’s Office of Dietary Supplements, a balanced diet that includes meat and dairy products should provide around 60mg to 180mg so this supplement delivers way more than you could hope to achieve by diet alone. In supplements the standard dose for L-carnitine is between 500-2,000mg so the serving size here is bang on.
There has been clinical testing into the effects of L-Carnitine upon muscle fat reduction and exercise performance and results look very promising. The majority of studies indicate that L-Carnitine can stimulate lipid metabolism (fat burning) and favourably affects recovery from exercise stress. Source
The Journal of Physiology concluded that taking L-Carnitine supplementation long term helps increases muscle carnitine content and alters muscle fuel metabolism during exercise in humans. In addition L-Carnitine may help increase oxygen flow to muscles, reduce muscle soreness following a workout because it seems to inhibit lactic acid production. However the key word here is long term. These results were most prevalent following 6 months use so you may have to take for a while before you see any major results. Source; Source
In our opinion MAN Sports L-Carnitine will probably work as well as other L-Carnitine supplements on the market.
Serving size is equal to 1 teaspoon (15ml).
L-Carnitine can cause some potential side effects. These may include;
Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if you are pregnant or breast feeding. Speak to your doctor before use if you have an underlying medical condition or are taking prescription medication. L-Carnitine can react with some commonplace medication including Warfarin.
