Carnitine.net is a webshop run by Paul Wilson of San Diego.

We sell carnitine powder, as well as a few more exotic sexual enhancement supplements.

In all honesty, carnitine has very little potential for sexual enhancement. When this domain was registered, in 1999, carnitine was much hyped. But as time went by, it became clear that its usefulness as a supplement is minimal. As this is an amino acid high in meat, eating any meat or eggs will do the same.

There are loads of articles on the internet that write about carnitine, both in the scientific and in the popular media. Despite our domain name, to be a primary source of information on carnitine is beyond the scope of this website.

Rather than isolated carnitine, we also sell a number of herbal sexual enhancement products from Thailand (Paul is an off-and-on resident of Pattaya, which explains our focus on sexual supplements, rather than, for example, traditional remedies for diabetes or high blood pressure).

The Thai sexual enhancement herbals we trade are tongkat ali, butea superba, and krachai dam.

Their effectiveness for sexual purposes has been confirmed in numerous scientific and clinical studies. All three are widely used in Thailand.

Even though tongkat ali, butea superba, and krachai dam are not very well-known in the US, at lot of data has already been published about all three. It's superfluous to go into much detail again. We rather concentrate on trade at low prices.

Just that much: butea superba and tongkat ali are testosterone boosters. They are great for sexual desire, libido, and sexual sensation, even orgasms.

Krachai dam is another story. It works on penile blood vessels, similar to Pfizer’s Blue, to which it is chemically related. Both Pfizer’s Blue and krachai dam are phosphodiesterase inhibitors.

Krachai dam has many other names. The scientific name is kaempferia parviflora, a bit long for comfort. But use the scientific name if you want to check scholar.google.com for clinical studies.

Krachai dam is also known as krachai dum. Actually, the correct pronunciation of krachai dam rhymes with "rum", the Carribean sugar whiskey. But krachai dam is the common transliteration of the Thai word. "Dam" means black. So, krachai dam is also know as black ginger. But this is misleading because it's not an ingredient in Asian cuisine, but a traditional medication.

A note on the comparison between Thai and Indonesian tongkat ali: the Thai variety is more sexually stimulating.

Our butea superba, krachai dam, and tongkat ali extracts are all manufactured by Sumatra Pasak Bumi, a trans-Asian company specializing on sexual enhancement. Their main website is tongkatali.org.

Please feel free to confirm with them (Ms Shanty) that I am legit. So much fake stuff on the web, even on the shelves here in Asia.

The benefits of carnitine

Carnitine is an amino acid, which has been found to have a wide range of protective effects and health benefits as long as it is consumed in sufficient amounts. Carnitine's protective effects are associated primarily with heart health. It has been shown to be a factor in the protection against heart disease.

One of a number of additional health benefits of carnitine is that it increases fat metabolism. It therefore helps in avoiding obesity, so the claim goes. Obviously, if carnintine can aide in avoiding obesity, it automatically qualifies as a medication against many health problems, which are associated with being overweight.

Carnitine is popular among athletes and body builders as it increases stamina and has been shown to help in developing muscle mass.

We haven't encountered claims that carnitine would be helpful in sexual functions, even though such claims (usually unsubstantiated) are regularly made for any kind of nutritional product as they tend to increase sales.

And please be aware of the following: that carnitine is a healthy amino acids does not mean that one should buy carnitine as supplement capsules. The best source for carnitine is meat. So, do yourself a favor and eat a steak.
