Hi and thanks for the question.

I believe that the article you are requesting is part of a larger
article entitled: "L-Carnitine, a 'Vitamin-like Substance' for
functional food."  This article is from the Annals of Nutrition and
Metabolism (2000) vol.44 pages 75-96.  (Since the article you request
is on pages 94-95 of the same volume, I assume it is a subsection of
the larger article.) It is written by Walter P, Schaffhauser AO.

The reference for this article can be located at:

I know why I could not find it. Sincerely, personaltrainer1-ga
