L-CITRULLINE MALATE 2:1
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 an amino acid that works to raise both arginine and ornithine plasma levels more efficiently and for longer periods of time than just l-arginine supplementation alone. It has quickly become the leader for nitric oxide increasing supplementation.
As an athletic performance supplement, l-citrulline has been shown to provide the following benefits when dosed properly.
- Decreased fatigue
- Decreased muscle soreness
- Increased nitric oxide
- Increased blood flow
- Increased growth hormone (a study showed a 66.8% increase post-workout)
- L-Citrulline is one of the most promising pre-workout supplement ingredients for the purpose of building muscle.
Derived from watermelon, l-citrulline is considered natural.
