L-Carnitine to help burn fat and build muscle
Widely used in human nutrition as a supplement, L-Carnitine promotes the use of fat as a source of energy. It works as a facilitator on the transport of fat deposits into cells, where they are then used to produce energy. By this, it saves the muscle deposits of the body, hence preserving lean mass.
The clinically proven level of L-Carnitine for an effective weight loss and lean body mass maintenance in cats is 500mg/kg 1,2. And this is how much you will find in your new Hill´s™ Science Plan™ Sterilised Cat pet food!
