L-Citrulline

Present in watermelons, L-Citrulline is often taken by athletes to support performance and recovery, and by individuals looking to maintain cardiovascular health.

L-citrulline is a non-essential amino acid, produced naturally in the body. Its ability to boost nitric oxide production makes it valuable for a wide range of physiological benefits.  


L-Citrulline benefits

  • L-Citrulline has been shown to improve endurance and strength. It helps increase blood flow, delivering more oxygen and nutrients to muscles during exercise.
  • By boosting nitric oxide production, L-Citrulline helps dilate arteries, improving blood flow and lowering blood pressure. This can lead to better heart health with reduced risk of heart disease.
  • Similar to its effects on muscle blood flow, L-Citrulline enhances blood flow to the erectile tissue, to help alleviate erectile dysfunction.
  • Enhanced circulation means more efficient immune responses as nutrients and immune cells are more effectively distributed throughout the body.

What does L-citrulline do?

  • L-Citrulline is converted by the kidneys into L-arginine, another amino acid that improves blood flow by creating nitric oxide. 
  • This process not only supports heart health and exercise performance but also influences other bodily functions such as immune response and metabolic processes.
