Interaction Information:

Comment Since carnitine synthesis is dependent on the availability of several co-factors including the micronutrients vitamin C, vitamin B6, and iron, a deficiency in these nutrients can lead to carnitine deficiency, in particular when carnitine is not provided from the diet in sufficient amounts.
