NITRIC OXIDE SUPPORT
Citrulline is an amino acid that is converted to L-arginine in the body during the urea cycle, alongside the other amino acid L-ornithine. Supplementing with citrulline is a more effective way to raise arginine levels and enhance nitric oxide (NO) production in the body, rather than supplementing with arginine. Nitric oxide is a vasodilator, meaning it causes blood vessels to widen, increasing blood flow and circulation without increasing blood pressure. This can help support muscle recovery, and improved shuttling of nutrients to muscles.
IMPROVES ENERGY AND ENDURANCE
Citrulline plays a role in ATP production, increasing energy demands when required while also buffering buildup of ammonia in the muscle, reducing exercise fatigue and increasing workout endurance.
REDUCE MUSCLE SORENESS
Citrulline malate supplementation has been shown to reduce post-workout muscle soreness for up to 48 hours in trained athletes, while also reducing the sensation and onset of muscle fatigue.
