How it works
Levocarnitine helps in the transport of fatty acids into the cells for energy production. It also helps in balancing the levels of coenzyme A, a helper component which helps with enzyme function. Vitamin E is fat-soluble, which regulates certain vital functions in the body. It plays an important role in regulating the immune system and protecting the cells from damage caused by free radicals.
