Although L-Carnitine is generally safe for diabetic patients, we don’t
recommend Nn Apple Juice Drink with L-Carnitine for severely diabetic
patients, since the apple juice contains fructose. Although fructose is
a natural fruit-derived sugar, those suffering from diabetes should limit

diabetic) can try taking Nn Apple Juice Drink with L-Carnitine at a low
dosage of 1 tablespoon daily. Never exceed the recommended daily dosage
2) I have lost some weight after taking
this product. Can I take more than the recommended dosage to lose more
While L-Carnitine is safe, we would not encourage you to consume more
than what your body requires. 4 tablespoons (4 x 15ml) daily is sufficient
to supply your body the L-Carnitine it needs. Taking more than the recommended
dosage will not exponentially enhance its efficacy, plus it will not be
economical. Your body will use the amount of L-Carnitine it requires &
excrete the excess.
