Possible Interaction: Carnitine and Glucose





Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Reaction times were more rapid when carnitine and a glucose drink were taken together.

In isolated rat hearts, administration of carnitine increases the oxidation of glucose while decreasing the oxidation of palmitate.

Carnitine at 100 μM completely prevented the survival reduction that was caused by the application of 10 mM glucose.
In conclusion, carnitine supplementation prevents the reduction of survival caused by glucose in C. elegans in dependence on a nuclear hormone receptor which displays high homologies to the vertebrate peroxisomal proliferator activated receptors.

By decreasing liver lipid accumulation and stimulating hepatic glucose output, carnitine supplementation might improve glucose status and diminish the risk of developing metabolic disorders during early lactation.

We found that addition of carnitine (50 μM) to a perfusate containing both glucose (10 mM) and palmitate (0.5 mM) stimulated glycolytic flux by 20%, nearly doubled the rate of glucose oxidation, and inhibited palmitate oxidation by 20%.

Plasma concentrations of glucose , glycerol, urea, and beta-hydroxybutyrate all were increased by some of the levels of carnitine supplementation, but results for these measurements did not follow easily described patterns and seemed to be related to differences in DMI.

Through another reaction, carnitine produces free coenzyme A and reduces the ratio of acetyl-coenzyme A to coenzyme A, thereby enhancing oxidative use of glucose , augmenting adenosine triphosphate synthesis, and reducing lactate production and acidosis.

Carnitine plus 10% dextrose appears to produce better results.

Thus, 10 mmol/L carnitine was able to increase total propionate metabolism (conversion to CO2, glucose and propionylcarnitine) by 40%.

The ability to oxidize carnitine is acquired by induction (Kleber and Aurich, 1966); only carnitine induces; glucose and glycine betaine repress the formation of the enzymes required for the oxidation of carnitine (Aurich and Kleber, 1966).
