    L-carnitine reduces heart failure after a heart attack by 15% according to a meta-analysis of 13 studies.

    However, there was a 21% chance that this difference seen between groups was due to random chance (P=0.21), in other words, it was not statistically significant, but this also means that there was a 79% chance the difference was due to the L-carnitine.

    This means that it is likely that the L-carnitine following a heart attack also reduces the risk of developing heart failure.
