- Eliminates Endotoxins
- Useful for Intense Physical Activity
- A Precursor to Arginine
L-Citrulline helps athletes to heal after large amounts of exercise in a similar fashion to Creatine, but does so without the negative side effects like bloating and cramps. Citrulline can be found in a lot of different foods including meats, milk, and rind of watermelon. It is also a precursor to Arginine. Arginine can then be used to expel Ammonia from the body and it helps to secrete certain hormones. Nitric oxide, a component used to help cells communicate with one another and a component which helps to relax blood vessels, is dependent upon the existence of Arginine in the body.
Health Benefits Provided by L-Citrulline
Citrulline can be used by athletes to increase performance and recovery by limiting the amount of ammonia accumulated in the body and by preventing the buildup of lactic acid. The nitric oxide produced by Citrulline is useful in helping to produce growth hormone, creatine, and insulin. This supplement is particularly useful for those involved in endurance exercises or any sort of intense physical activity.
Serving Size & Timing
This supplement should be taken in servings of 3,000mg to be consumed two times per day, one hour to forty five minutes before a workout. When taken along with Histidine and Beta Alanine, these three supplements can go on to create Carnosine, which further improves the effectiveness of production of nitric oxide. Those who are taking any amino acid as a supplement should also be aware that it is necessary to supplement other amino acids too, in order to maintain a necessary balance.

L-Citrulline Side Effects
As long as suggested serving sizes are adhered to this supplement should be fine. It acts fast and is tolerated by even people with generally weak constitutions. However, those who have had liver or kidney problems in the past should not take any amino acids without talking to a doctor first; as well as any women who are pregnant or breast feeding.
This supplement has a sour flavor and dissolves fast in water. It may be mixed with water or juice and consumed that way. It should be stored in an area that is free from light, heat, and moisture.
- Citrulline is an amino acid that our bodies convert to another amino acid called arginine, which is then converted to nitric oxide, a compound which relaxes blood vessels and stimulates blood flow to muscles and other pats of the male anatomy. (research it) It is also thought to reduce buildup of Lactic acid in muscles and thus reduce soreness and recovery time between workouts. In my opinion this effect is legit. It isn't hugely dramatic, but it does work. Like all Bulksupplements.com products that I've tried, this stuff is high quality and the cheapest I've found anywhere. Also, their customer service is great and shipping is crazy fast. As long as they keep doing business this way, I see no reason to buy from anywhere else.

- Just started using L-citrulline as one of my pre-workout ingredients! Absolutely love it! The taste isn't the best but it definitely aids in giving me an energy boost and making my muscles feel looser and not sore! It helps get rid of the excess ammonia in your body which contributes to muscle soreness. Highly recommend this product or citrulline/malate for those needing a pre-workout boost,

The main think I like about L-Citrulline powder is that it helps with my recovery time after workout. It is most noticeable after leg day. Before I started using L-Citrulline I was tremendously sore; since I've been using this the soreness factor has been cut in half (at least). Great buy.
I would certainly buy this again. Packaging was great; delivery time was acceptable.

- I tried just a small dose 3mg + some malic acid I had on hand and noticed a pretty good response right away during my AM workout. I was distracted by something and realized I had doubled my reps for a given move w/o even thinking about it. So I think this stuff is pretty good.
