    I think it wont do much since its waaaaay better to get it from foods.

    "Like most drugs, much of l-carnitine taken orally is lost and not
    available to the body. The best method for gaining the highest
    absorption rate is to acquire it through the diet, not theough
    supplements. Dietary l-carnitine (from the actual diet) maintains an
    absorption rate of 54-87%, dependent on the dosage, from low (54%) to
    high (87%), whereas supplementary l-carnitine is passively absorbed
    and therefore only maintains a bioavailability of 14-18% of the dose
    taken."
