Ingredient Explained: Citrulline

What is it?

L-citrulline is the natural form of citrulline. The human body produces its citrulline. However, consuming extra citrulline can have significant performance benefits. It is found naturally in fruits such as watermelon and vegetables such as squash and pumpkin. 

What does it do?

Citrulline enhances nitric-oxide levels, which allows for blood vessel dilation. This, in turn, allows for more oxygen and nutrients to be delivered to your muscles. Citrulline can also reduce symptoms of muscular fatigue. It plays a role in removing a fatigue-inducing compound called ammonia from your blood. 

How do I take it?

  • Dosage

6-9g is the recommended serving size of L-Citrulline Malate 2:1

3-6g is the recommended serving size of pure L-Citrulline

  • Timing

Citrulline typically takes 30-40 minutes to digest and enter the bloodstream. Therefore, to maximise its full benefits, it's a good idea to take it pre-workout.

  • Frequency

There's no ideal frequency for citrulline. However, given the positive effects on performance, we recommend that you consume it before each workout session.
