I would like to find a liquid version of L-Carnitine for my 6 year old daughter.  My doctor here in Atlanta gave me dosing, but honestly, he hadn't even heard of using the CoQ10 /Carnitine supplement regimen to help with the CVS.  

That's fine, but I want to use a product that is free of additives, sugar, etc.  I read some great posts about Carnitine in pill form.  Does any one with children have a brand recommendation for the liquid form?

I feel like I found a great chewable recommendation from Epic4Health for CoQ10, but if you have a chewable recommendation for CoQ10 I'm all ears.

Thank you!
Cindy

I found a liquid at a local natural food store: Jarrow Formulas Liquid Carnitine.  Lemon-line flavor.  No gluten, soy, dairy, egg, nuts, fish.  [redface])   

Let's see how it works and tastes....

hi, I am new to CVS diagnosis (after 17 years of symptoms, finally an answer for me!) but I have 2 special needs kids and I am the supp queen!  It sounds like you found your answer (barring any ingredients you don't like in the liquid, artificial flavours  etc.... or sodium benzoate etc which is linked to hyperactivity in kids in a couple studies).    

Just archiving this for future use....I buy ALCAR pure Acetyl L Carnitine in bulk (like, a 500g tub) and capsulise it myself.  But it tastes kind of OK, kind of "tangy".  Not bitter at all.  It actually tastes fine in Orange Juice or lemonade, to me.  Or a smoothie. 

best, Liora
