- Builds muscle
- Boosts Energy
Citrulline is useful for anyone participating in high-intensity exercise, including strength athletes, bodybuilders, cyclists and some runners (e.g. middle-distance runners).
As an intermediate in the urea cycle, Citrulline aids in the removal of endotoxins such as lactic acid and ammonia, which can impair exercise performance. These endotoxins are produced through intense physical activity, protein metabolism and catabolic states.
Research also suggests that Citruline is possibly more effective than Arginine for enhancing plasma arginine levels. This is because of Citrullines effects on endogenous arginine synthesis - meaning that Citrulline Malate may be a superior alternative to Arginine for regulating nitric oxide production, growth hormone release, insulin and creatine production. Citrulline Malate has also been shown to significantly reduce muscle fatigue, increased ATP production by around 30%, and cause a dramatic increase in phosphocreatine levels after exercise.
How do I take it?
Citrulline is ideal taken intra (during) workout in products such as Intracell.
What results can I expect?
Citrulline dramatically speeds up the rate at which the metabolic by-products of exercise (such as lactic acid and ammonia) are removed from the working muscle. This lets you train better and harder. You'll also recover faster from each workout.
