Mary asks…

What does the “L” stand for in L-carnitine and L-tryptophan?

These are naturally occurring chemicals in nature but also can be produced. Which is what I think the L stands for, Im just not sure. I have also seen D-carnitine, which is banned in the US apparently.

It goes to the concept of stereoisomerism: Stereoisomers are isomeric molecules that have the same molecular formula and sequence of bonded atoms (constitution), but which differ only in the three-dimensional orientations of their atoms in space.

One form of an isomer may bend polarized light to the right, and is labeled the D- form (D for dextro-, Latin root for right). The other isomer bends polarized light to the left, and is labeled L (Levo- or left).
Many such stereoisomers are biologically active in only one form, usually the L- isomer, such as L-DOPA.

Of interest historically, Louis Pasteur was the first to describe this, but he became involved in other matters.
