Citrulline, 200 Grams Unflavored
By: Kaged Muscle
L–Citrulline is an amino acid. L-Citrulline is converted to L-Arginine in the body, leading to increases in both L-Arginine and nitric oxide.
The pharmacokinetic process of L-Citrulline is that it is not subject to any elimination by the liver prior to entering the bloodstream. Conversely, L-Arginine is subject to extensive elimination by the gut wall and liver. (26)
The majority of L-Citrulline is converted to L-Arginine in the kidney. (3)
Once in circulation, L-Arginine is readily converted into L-Citrulline and nitric oxide, which in turn serves as an L-Arginine precursor (see figure below). (10)
