    I use curcumin and cinnamon a lot, never heard of carnitine though. From what I've noticed in myself curcimin helps my bloodflow. I use it in soups, rice and with vegetables.
    Now I use cinnamon less, well, actually I mostly just add it to rice. It brings extremely nice flavor to it though.

    These are spices, not supplements. I always add cinnamon to smoothies, best sweetener there is.

    Curcumin is fantastic but has a low bioavailability unless you get the right kind.
    I reccomend Meriva or Theracumin.

    Cinnamon has a few benefits and tastes great.

    Keep in mind that those are spices and closer to "whole foods" rather than supplements.

    Not sure about L carnitine's effectiveness.

    Circumin and Turmeric have both been shown to be great antioxidants and inhibitors of some type of cancer potentiator.

    Carnitine is a key amino acid in fat transport. It also helps the Thyroid.

    Cinnamon in low/moderate doses seems to have a lowering effect on blood glucose levels. You can find it in capsule form in the Diabetes isle. Too much is harmful though.
