L-carnitine is an amino acid found in meat and dairy products that your body also produces naturally. According to "User's Guide to Protein and Amino Acids," however, research does not confirm L-carnitine's ability to enhance weight loss. Additionally, clinical research has not confirmed that this amino acid increases physical performance in healthy, exercising adults. Hydroxycitric acid is the active ingredient in garcinia cambogia extract. Manufacturers commonly use this compound in weight-loss supplements.

Does Cellfood Work?

The manufacturer of Cellfood does not back up the claims it makes with clinical, scientific evidence.
