Considering these facts, it is believed to be helpful in the reduction Received in revised form 21 January 2018 of cardiovascular diseases and diabetes. Physicochemical properties of L-carnitine in aqueous or mixed Accepted 23 January 2018 aqueous solutions are scarcely available in literature. Such properties will be useful in understanding Available online 31 January 2018 the interactions of L-carnitine with other cellular components like trimethylamine-N-oxide (TMAO), dex- trose (D-glucose) and NaCl.
