The outbreak of COVID 19 from the beginning of 2020 severely disrupted the supply chain, retail distribution, and consumer behavior for numerous products and services across the world. However, L-carnitine witnessed a surge in demand during the pandemic owing to increased consumer preference for health and wellness products, which reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

Moreover, researchers at the MRC Integrative Epidemiology Unit (IEU), Bristol Medical School, U.K. have concluded that L-carnitine and its derivative such as acetyl-carnitine provide strong protective effects against severe COVID 19 patients. The study highlighted that doubling of carnitine concentration in blood reduces the risk of severe COVID-19 by 40%.
