L-Citrulline is a naturally occurring non-essential amino acid. Although L-Citrulline is not used in protein synthesis directly, it has several important functions with respect to amino acid and protein metabolism. Citrulline is a non-essential amino acid that is an important intermediate in the urea cycle, functioning along with Arginine and Ornithine to rid the body of ammonia, a byproduct of protein metabolism. Powder form allows for controlled dosing and can be added to health shakes.
In addition, L-Citrulline facilitates protein synthesis for muscle tissue retention and helps to maintain healthy protein balance. Because Citrulline is a precursor of Arginine, it provides a readily available source material for Arginine production, which in turn, can be used for the production of Nitric Oxide (NO). NO plays a fundamental role in vascular function and blood flow.
