L-Citrulline is a naturally occurring non-essential amino acid. Although L-Citrulline is not used in protein synthesis directly, it has severalimportant functions with respect to amino acid and protein metabolism. L-Citrulline is involved in the formation of urea in the liver; and the synthesis and elimination of urea is essential for removing toxic protein metabolites from the body. L-Citrulline functions along with Arginine and Ornithine to rid the body of ammonia (urea), a by-product of protein metabolism. This can help buffer lactic acid levels and reduce muscle fatigue, which is extremely important in both weight training and endurance sports.

In addition, L-Citrulline facilitates protein synthesis for muscle tissue retention and helps to maintain healthy protein balance. Because Citrulline is a precursor of Arginine, it provides a readily available source material for Arginine production, which in turn, can be used for the production of Nitric Oxide (NO). NO plays a fundamental role in vascular function and blood flow.
