I would like to know if I am able to take L Carnitine 1000 mgs being blood type o. I have been reading online that Blood type o's tend to have lower thyroid issues and L carnitine could interfer with that. I love L carnitine though its helped me to lose weight and gain energy. I have normal thyroid levels but the last test I took showed they were on the lower end. I follow the Blood type diet to a T for o's! Its helped me lose so much weight and feel so great. I just am wondering what I should do as far as stopping or continuing the carnitine dose. Please give me some feedback. Thank you so much.

I've found that I don't need to take any individual amino acids when I eat enough animal protein, especially red meat.

How long have you been on the Blood Type Diet? If you're just starting out, you may want to continue using your usual supplements for a while, so as to not make too many changes at once.

welcome!

Red meats are the best sources of carnitine (50 to 120 mg/100 g). Fish, chicken and milk are good sources (1.6 to 6.4 mg/100 g). Vegetables, fruits, grains, and other plant-derived foods contain very little carnitine (<0.05 mg/100 g). Approximately 65 to 75% of dietary carnitine is absorbed. Unabsorbed carnitine is almost entirely degraded by bacteria in the large intestine. No dietary components are known to impair absorption. There is no known toxicity associated with ingestion from normal dietary components. Supplements that provide more than 3,000 mg (19 mmol) of carnitine per day may cause diarrhea and/or "fish odor" syndrome..
