CITRULLINE+ is a food supplement based on citrulline, this is a non-essential amino acid, it is a popular component in sports supplement as it takes part in several key amino acid reactions and affects blood flow by increasing nitric oxide levels.
This amino acid is an ideal pre-workout as it is easier absorbed in the intestine, thus avoiding degradation in the liver and is rapidly converted by the body into arginine. Indeed, in a study by Osawska et Al it has been shown that the citrulline intake preserves a greater increase in the blood level of arginine and in muscle than the intake of arginine itself. Citrulline is able to directly stimulate protein synthesis by activating the mTOR enzyme which promotes muscle growth.
Citrulline, also, turns out to be a good supplement that improves fat burning and muscle blood flow as well as protecting the intestine from damage during exercise.
