Raw Powders™ offers pure L-Citrulline Malate powder with no additives!
What is L-Citrulline?
L-Citrulline is one of the three amino acids in the Urea cycle (other 2 are L-Arginine and L-Ornithine) L-Citrulline turns into L-Arginine after absorption. Approximately 83% of orally ingested citrulline appears to be taken up by the kidneys where it is converted into L-Arginine.
While L-Arginine is poorly absorbed taking L-Citrulline may be a reasonable option for those that are seeking for a more stable way of increasing your plasma arginine levels.
IMPORTANT! Arginine can increase plasma arginine levels, for a short period of time. However, citrulline provides a more prolonged boost in plasma arginine.
Why Citrulline Malate?
Adding malic acid to citrulline enhances pharmaceutical stability and improves its absorption.
