More about Citrulline


Energy from watermelons?

If you’ve ever eaten watermelon on a hot summer day then you know how tasty and refreshing it can be. Something about this delicious and nutritious fruit just seems to get people energized. Ever wonder why?

Here’s the secret. Watermelon contains a less well-known amino acid that offers some big-time benefits for active individuals – Citrulline.

Check out these L-Citrulline benefits:

  • L-Citrulline is a naturally occurring amino acid that our bodies convert into L-Arginine, an amino acid with a host of health benefits.
  • L-Citrulline participates in the urea cycle, a process where ammonia, a toxic chemical produced during the catabolism of amino acids, is converted urea, a non-toxic compound, for elimination.
  • This conditionally essential amino acid may help to support healthy immune system function.

So you can see why it might make sense to add a citrulline supplement to your nutrition regimen.
