L-carnitine plays a powerful role in energy production and blood sugar regulation. In pregnancy, energy production increases, requiring the demand for nutrient co-factors being used to create that energy. 1st trimester mothers, vegans and vegetarians can be challenged by adequate protein intake. Carnitine is primarily found in animal-based protein rich foods. Studies show that supplementing with 500 mg-2000 mg in pregnancy have distinct benefits to common symptoms associated with pregnancy such as fatigue and headaches. 2,000 mg of carnitine in pregnancy shows a marked decrease in the risk gestational diabetes.

Studies show that supplementing with 2-3 grams of L-carnitine in the preconception time period improves overall sperm health and even pregnancy rate.
You can take L-carnitine safely on an empty stomach, but we usually recommend most all supplementation to be taken with food.
