Supplementation of L-carnitine in pigs: absorption of carnitine and effect on plasma and tissue carnitine concentrations

Supplementation of L-carnitine in pigs: absorption of carnitine and effect on plasma and tissue carnitine concentrations

Archives of Animal Nutrition 63(1): 1-15

This study was performed to investigate the bioavailability of carnitine supplements and their effects on the carnitine status of pigs. Seven groups of young pigs with an average body weight of 10 kg were fed a basal diet or the same diets supplemented with 25, 50, 100, 200, 500 or 1000 mg of L-carnitine per kg for 20 days.
