Citrulline malate by HSN Raw is a combination of the amino-acid citrulline together with the malate salt. It acts together with arginine and ornithine in the urea cycle, helping our body to excrete metabolic waste products. One of the main sources of citrulline is watermelon, but its intake would be impossible to supply an ergogenic support through this food, or if what you wish to make a more intense use of the active principle.
Citrulline can be combined with other supplements, commonly used in the 'peri-workout', such as BCAAs and Arginine, in order to achieve a synergistic effect, in terms of improved physical performance, muscle recovery and increased blood flow and oxygenation.
Citrulline has a powerful effect to signal the activation of the secretion of nitric oxide. Similarly it intervenes in important physiological processes. One of them is related to it being a component of the urea cycle, with which ammonia and other toxins in blood can be removed and eliminated. Nitrogen metabolites accumulate from the digestion, absorption and metabolism of proteins, for this reason the consumption of Citrulline may be of interest for protein-rich diets. Citrulline acts together with citric acid, aspartic acid and magnesium to improve the elimination of nitrogen metabolites.
Citrulline malate has a special role in the high-performance sports field due to its properties to improve certain physical aspects of the athlete during both aerobic and anaerobic activities, as well as high intensity activities.
T the same time, the contribution of citrulline via supplementation increases the presence in blood plasma of the amino acids ornithine and arginine.
When we ingest the amino acid L-Arginine, a peak in blood plasma is produced, while when we consume Citrulline Malate, firstly it has to be converted to arginine in the kidneys. In this case, by supplying both products we will achieve a high plasma levels of arginine for a longer period. In this sense, we will be able to use this fact and apply it to our pre-workout, to improve our athletic capacity, supporting a better oxygenation and transport of nutrients towards the muscle fibres.
- Support cardiovascular health through the release and production of nitric oxide, improving blood circulation
- Reducing blood pressure and promoting the optimal state of the immune system
- Speed recovery after exercise
- Contribute to the detoxification of the liver, and the removal of ammonia from the body
- Enables better sexual relations
Citrulline malate supplementation can improve the physical anaerobic performance and reduces Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS), as well as promoting health, such as improving insulin sensitivity.
Increasing Nitric Oxide (NO) production. One of the most important benefits of Citrulline malate is the stimulation of nitric oxide secretion, increasing the transport of nutrients through the blood vessels to the muscle cell. Thanks to this feature, it regulates the blood flow and improves the oxygen supply. As a side effect, the absorption of glucose is improved.
It also lowers blood acidosis caused by the submaximal anaerobic effort, generating lactate in the process, and obtaining ammonia and nitrogen toxic metabolites as metabolic waste. This helps to maintain cellular health from the damage of oxidative stress. In this sense, sportspeople and athletes, that have a high volume and intensity of training, would benefit from including Citrulline Malate in their diet as a supplement, not only as an aid to improve their performance but also to look after their health.
Citrulline malate helps regenerate the energy used by our muscles in high intensity and short duration efforts. Here, substrate phosphocreatine gets involved, which needs time to achieve regeneration once postexertional deposits are emptied. Citrulline supports the Krebs cycle for ATP production. Thus, maintaining a steady supply of ATP, athletic performance will be maximized.
The main benefits provided by citrulline malate are:
- Improve athletic capacity
- Promoting the rapid elimination of toxins generated by physical exercise
- Accelerate intra-workout recovery processes
Those people who will possibly benefit from these properties are athletes and sportspeople within a framework of competition or it can support training throughout the season.
Among the sports disciplines, we can include: Athletics, Powerlifting, Weightlifting, CrossFit, Martial Arts, Rugby, Triathlon...
On the other hand, since citrulline malate increases the blood flow and promotes better functioning of the cardiovascular system, it can be a great help for those people who suffer from certain related pathologies, such as erectile dysfunction, high blood pressure, high triglyceride levels...
I have been able to prolong my workouts and to complete them without feeling excessively tired, great product.
It really helps with the recovery phase and to delay fatigue during training.
I wanted to add a supplement for my diet and this one really helped specially with the recovery phase.
