Citrulline is a non-essential amino acid that is an important intermediate in the urea cycle, functioning along with Arginine and Ornithine to rid the body of ammonia, a byproduct of protein metabolism.  Because Citrulline is a precursor of Arginine, it provides a readily available source material for Arginine production, which in turn, can be used for the production of Nitric Oxide (NO).  NO plays a fundamental role in vascular function and blood flow.  Citrulline therefore, not only supports detoxification pathways, but also supports NO production and a healthy cardiovascular system.

One of the prime benefits of Citrulline supplementation is showing itself to be increasing erectile strength and hardness factor.  Men use L-Citrulline to treat erectile dysfunction with good success. L-citrulline is converted to the amino acid L-arginine, which goes on to make another important substance nitric oxide. And nitric oxide is the secret to hard, firm, healthy erections. 

The endothelium (inner lining) of blood vessels uses nitric oxide to signal a compound called cyclic GMP. It is cGMP that triggers smooth muscles in the penis to relax. This results in vasodilation, or widening of the blood vessels, and an increase in blood flow. Nitric oxide helps the blood vessels maintain their flexibility so that the blood can flow unrestricted throughout the body, including the penis.

In contrast to Viagra, which may help some men have an erection a half hour after they take a pill, but will do nothing to correct the real problem, so he no longer needs a pill, L-citrulline supplementation may not only help a man with ED have an erection, over time, it helps restore health to the blood vessels in the penis, correcting the underlying cause of ED. L-citrulline is also of great benefit for postmenopausal women.

One reason women are protected from cardiovascular disease before menopause is that estrogen inhibits arginase, so pre-menopause, women produce more nitric oxide. L-citrulline may help postmenopausal women increase their nitric oxide production, promoting healthy veins and blood flow throughout the body, thus improving their heart health & sex life as well.

L-citrulline increases your energy levels by decreasing blood lactate concentration,and helpa eliminate ammonia from the body. It is a non-essential amino acid that is a precurser of L-arginine. Chemical responses in our body produce L-citrulline from ornithine, required for the synthesis or arginine. It also assists in the release of Nitric Oxide into the bloodstream, vital for opening up the blood vessels.
