L–Citrulline is an amino acid that has been found to play an important role in nitric oxide (NO) metabolism and regulation. L-Citrulline is converted to L-Arginine in the body, leading to increases in both L-Arginine and nitric oxide. Increased production of nitric oxide promotes vascular dilation, which helps support normal oxygen and blood circulation throughout the body.The pharmacokinetic advantage 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.The majority of L-Citrulline is converted to L-Arginine in the kidney.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).
As a dietary supplement, mix 1 heaping scoop in your favorite beverage or protein shake twice daily.
