L-citrulline is a non protein amino acid, which is manufactured by the human body. It can regulate cardiovascular function and optimize blood flow. Therefore, it can be used as a supply source for exercise performance. In the body, citrulline is converted to L-arginine (another amino acid) to produce nitric oxide (no), a small molecule that dilates blood vessels, so that working muscles can absorb more oxygen and nutrition and remove metabolic waste.
Citrulline is a non protein amino acid, which has the ability of peptide bond formation, but does not participate in protein synthesis. Citrulline was once considered as an intermediate product in the urea cycle. However, recent studies show that citrulline can be widely used in medicine, food, health care and other aspects, and has good pharmacological effects.
L-citrulline has many important physiological functions, such as scavenging free radicals, allogeneic rejection indicator, vasodilation, stabilizing blood pressure, diagnosing rheumatoid arthritis, antioxidation and so on; In addition, it has a very significant role in restoring energy and improving human immunity. In recent years, L-citrulline has attracted more and more attention in the fields of food, cosmetics and drugs, and has a wide development and application prospect.
