Table of contents
Citrulline malate by HSNraw is a combination of the amino-acid citrulline 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 there is no way we could meet its supply just through food in order to obtain its ergogenic support through this food.
Citrulline can be combined with other supplements, commonly used in the 'peri-workout', such as BCAA's and Arginine, in order to achieve a synergistic effect that will improve the physical performance, muscle recovery and increase the blood flow and oxygenation.
Citrulline has a powerful effect when it comes to signalling the nitric oxide secretion. Moreover, it is involved in important physiological processes. One of them is related to the fact that it is involved in the urea cycle to eliminate the ammonia and other toxins. Nitrogen metabolites accumulate from the digestion, absorption and protein metabolism, that is why taking Citrulline can be useful for protein-rich diets. Citrulline works with citric acid, aspartic acid and magnesium to improve the elimination of nitrogen metabolites.
Citrulline Malate plays a special role in high-performance sports due to its ability to improve certain physical aspects both during aerobic and anaerobic activities, as well as high intensity activities.
At the same time, citrulline supplementation increases the ornithine and arginine levels in the blood plasma.
When we take the L-Arginine amino acid, there is a peak in the blood plasma. On the other hand, when we consume Citrulline Malate, it has to be transformed into arginine in the kidneys. In this case, we will achieve high plasma levels of arginine for a longer period of time by combining both products. This means that we will be able to use this fact and apply it to our pre-workout, to improve our athletic capacity, enhancing the oxygenation and nutrient transport toward the muscle fibres.
- Supporting the cardiovascular health by releasing and producing nitric oxide, which improves the blood flow
- Reducing the blood pressure and improving state of the immune system
- Shortening the post-workout recovery
- Contributing to the detoxification of the liver and the excretion of ammonia
- Improving the 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 the production of Nitric Oxide (NO). One of the most important benefits of Citrulline malate is stimulating the nitric oxide production, increasing the nutrient transport through the blood vessels to the muscle cells. Thanks to this feature, it regulates the blood flow and increases the oxygen supply. This also improves the glucose absorption.
It also lowers the blood acidosis caused by submaximal anaerobic efforts, which produces lactate, ammonia and toxic nitrogen metabolites as metabolic waste products. This helps to protect the cells against oxidative stress. Therefore, those athletes who have a high volume and intensity of training will benefit from including a Citrulline Malate supplement in their diet, not only to improve their performance but also to stay healthy.
Citrulline Malate helps to recharge the energy that is used by our muscles in short term high intensity efforts. In this type of activities, our body uses phosphocreatine, which needs time to recharge the reserves once the deposits are emptied. Citrulline supports the Krebs cycle for the ATP production. Thus, it will keep a steady supply of ATP, which will enhance the athletic performance.
The main benefits of citrulline malate are:
- Improving the athletic capacity
- Eliminating toxins produced during physical exercise
- Shortening the intra-workout recovery processes
Those who will possibly benefit from these properties are athletes during competitions or workout sessions.
Some of the sport disciplines that we can include are: Athletics, Powerlifting, Weightlifting, CrossFit, Martial Arts, Rugby, Triathlon...
On the other hand, since citrulline malate increases the blood flow and improves the functioning of the cardiovascular system, it can be a great help for those people who suffer from erectile dysfunction, high blood pressure, high triglyceride levels...
