L-Citrulline is an organic compound derived from plants & animals formed of natural citrulline and it has got the widespread attention by the use of tremendous health benefits. It is also known as L-Citrulina and L-Citrulline AKG. It is mainly found in watermelons and also be produced naturally by body. Human body uses l-citrulline by converting into nitric oxide and l-arginine for their consumption. It is used for wide purposes for improving athletic performance, increasing energy, heart disease, body building, diabetes, high blood pressure, muscle weakness, erectile dysfunction, fatigue & alzheimer’s disease, dementia and sickle cell disease. It can also be used for the heart disease, increasing energy, body building, and for improving the athletic performance. It is also produced from arginine as a by-product of the reaction catalysed by NOS family. The L-Citrulline derived from citrullus, the Latin word for watermelon, from which it was first insulated. L-citrulline supplementation are mainly based on the bulk for l-citrulline to increase l-arginine availability for nitric oxide production. Nitric oxide released from the endothelium as gas initiates a signalling cascade involving the activation of soluble guanylate cyclase (sGC) to upsurge cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) synthesis.
L-citrulline is possibly safe when used orally & appropriately by adults and children. The appropriate dose depends on some factors for instance patient’s age, health, and several other conditions. Apart from this, some of the side effects are stomach upset, cough, changes in urination, heartburn, & swelling and others.
