L-Citrulline is an amino acid that supports the body in optimizing blood flow through its conversion to L-arginine and then nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is involved in vasodilatation and low levels are associated with mental and physical fatigue and sexual dysfunction.
L-Citrulline is a nonessential amino acid, which is not found in dietary protein. L-Citrulline is a precursor to the formation of L-Arginine and thus plays a vital role in Arginine recycling, which is an important factor in nitric oxide release.
Anyone who is involved in aerobic exercise and who wants to enhance performance and reduce recovery time may benefit from L-Citrulline supplementation. Since L-Citrulline enhances the recovery process it is very useful for the recovery process of power athletes such as bodybuilders, powerlifters and strength athletes.
Since L-Citrulline is derived from the non-essential amino acid Citrukine there are no symptoms of deficiency and or side effects.
For best results look for products that give around 3000mg - 5000mg of L-Citrulline (aka citruline malate) enhanced Creatine, Glutamine or NO2 per serving. On training days you may want to take one serving in the morning on an empty stomach at first rise. Then another 30-40 minutes before a workout.
