what is citrulline malate?

The Body Building Amino Acid

- Decreases Fatigue
- Increases Nitric Oxide
- Delivers Nutrients

L–Citrulline is an amino acid that is crucial in the role of nitric oxide (NO) metabolism and regulation. Improved NO promotes vascular dilation, which helps support normal oxygen and blood circulation throughout the body. This is great for the lifters trying to "feel the pump".

L-Citrulline Malate is a derivative of the amino acid known as Citrulline. It’s a great supplement for those looking to give their body a boost when working out.

Why Arginine over Citrulline? The edge of L-Citrulline is that none of it will go through any elimination before entering the bloodstream. On the other hand, L-Arginine is subject to vast elimination by the gut wall and liver.

L-Citrulline Malate increases in nitric oxide and decreases in fatigue. One study showed how L-Citrulline Malate is able to decrease muscle soreness.[1] This allows you to take your workouts to the next level by pushing your body further. This is one of the reasons why L-Citrulline Malate is able to help you fight back against fatigue.[2]

Another benefit to L-Citrulline Malate is its ability to convert into l-arginine upon digestion, enabling an effective supply of Arginine to the whole body.[3] That makes a few Wurx products a great option for those looking to up their l-arginine levels having maximized the l-arginine supplement intake. L-Arginine can increase your nitric oxide levels which translates to a more power and strength during your workout.[4]

Other roles

  • Antioxidant effect: An active oxygen radical scavenger 
  • L-Citrulline Malate is the one of the most important pump ingredients, and in most pre-workout supplements it is extremely underdosed. It improves strength, aerobic exercise, and muscle performance. 
  • Ammonia detoxification: Action as a component of the L-ornithine cycle
  • Betaine Anhydrous, when paired with L-Citrulline Malate, promotes significant muscle growth and reduces muscle fatigue between sets.
  • Influences blood vessels: Actions via NO production, vasodilation, blood flow acceleration  
  • By optimizing blood flow, Citrulline Malate can reduce fatigue during and after your workouts, while delivering nutrients quicker to your muscles. 

You can find Citrulline in His Wurx Pre Workout, Her Wurx Pre WorkoutStimWurx, and Amino Wurx.
