Notes for this study:
In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, 72 participants with mild to moderate knee osteoarthritis took 750 mg of l-carnitine tartrate or placebo daily for 8 weeks.

The total score on the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) was improved considerably more than in the placebo group. This was derived from improvements in pain, stiffness, and physical function.

Participants didn't report any adverse events.
