Elemental Nutrition - L-Citrulline has been quickly adopted as the new amino acid for boosting nitric oxide levels. Unlike its predecessor in this role, L-arginine, L-citrulline bypasses metabolism in the liver so it goes straight into the bloodstream and then to the kidneys where most of it is converted to arginine. This is in contrast to arginine, which undergoes significant 'first-pass metabolism' - meaning most is taken up in the liver, with little reaching the bloodstream.
In addition to serving as a superior precursor for arginine, citrulline plays a vital role in the urea cycle, which is responsible for clearing the toxic metabolite ammonia from the body. Ammonia toxicity is one of the factors that limits high intensity exercise capacity.
WIth these impressive list of scientifically proven benefits, citrulline makes for a great pre-workout amino acid. However, to experience all of citrulline benefits, you have to take the right amount. Doses of between 6 and 8g pre-workout have been shown to be most effective.
Elemental Nutrition's Citrulline is the perfect citrulline supplement for those looking for a great value, high quality, high dose pure citrulline supplement.
