Effect None
Trial Design Randomized trial
Trial Length 24 hours
Number of Subjects 20
Sex Male
Age Range 18-29

Notes for this study:
This trial first had all 20 participants perform five 100 m swims using their stroke of choice for time, and then randomized them to receive either 4 g l-carnitine l-tartrate or placebo in a 236 mL citrus drink twice daily (in the morning and afternoon) for seven days. After seven days, the participants then completed another swim of the same design. Time and velocity were measured for each interval, and blood lipids, pH, and lactate were measured at the end of the swim.
