L-Citrulline Pure Powder L-Citrulline Pure Powder

NOW L-Citrulline Pure Powder is product free of any additional substances, containing pure L-citrulline, which makes it possible to supplement the diet in the amino acid in a safe and easy way. By providing a component that is active both on its own and through its derivative L-arginine, it supports, among other things, smooth detoxification processes, the right functioning of energy management, it cares for the right condition of the cardiovascular system, and promotes the activation of anabolic processes, whose stimulation is crucial for the development and regeneration of the organism. The product is recommended for people who follow a high-protein diet, are highly active and, as a result, need their organism to have high regenerative abilities.

L-Citrulline – also known as 2-amino-5-ureidovaleric acid, a nitric compound classified as an α-amino acid. It was isolated for the first time in 1914 from a watermelon (Citrullus vulgaris). As a non-proteolytic amino acid, it is not an element of protein structures in the organism. It is usually found in its free form in the human body. It is a direct precursor of L-arginine and many other compounds, including: ornithine, glutamate, or polyamines, through which many of its properties are visible. It can be produced by the organism out of arginine, proline, glutamate, and glutamine. From the nutritional point of view, it is not an essential compound, although providing it from the outside seems beneficial because of the fact that it is a substrate that limits L-arginine synthesis. Its main sources are: watermelons, melons, pumpkins, squash, and cucumbers.

Properties of L-citrulline
Enables the removal of ammonia from the organism
As an important element of the urea cycle, also known as the ornithine cycle, L-citrulline participates in the conversion of ammonia to a less harmful substance, urea, which is possible to remove from the organism. As an ornithine precursor, it provides a compound able to react with carbamoyl phosphate formed out of ammonia, whose further conversions in the urea cycle are the only efficient way of removing excess ammonia from the organism.

Supports normal cardiovascular system functions
As a direct precursor of L-arginine for endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) found in vascular endothelial cells, L-citrulline provides a substrate for the synthesis of nitric oxide (NO). Nitric oxide formed in vascular cells, which is responsible for vascular dilation, helps to improve blood flow and regulate blood pressure. By ensuring the right blood flow and inhibiting platelet adhesion, activation and aggregation, it cares for the right functioning of the circulatory system. L-citrulline also improves the condition of the cardiovascular system by supporting reverse cholesterol transport.

Participates in the functioning of the nervous system
L-citrulline provides a nitric oxide substrate for neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) in the form of L-arginine, so it enables the formation of nitric oxide in the nervous system, where it plays the role of a neurotransmitter in the brain and the autonomous nervous system, that way ensuring its normal functioning. By participating in the urea cycle responsible for removing excess ammonia from the nervous system, it supports the functioning of neurons.

Supports the functioning of energy management
As an indirect creatine substrate, L-citrulline enables the synthesis of a molecule able to deposit highly energy-boosting compounds, which are a buffer of quickly released energy necessary for the functioning of the organism and the biochemical transformations that take place in it. It increases the amount of free fatty acids, which perform the function of efficient energy substrates, by stimulating the pace of lipolysis and inhibiting the process of glyceroneogenesis.

Accelerates the regeneration of the organism
As a precursor of L-arginine, which increases the release of growth hormone (hGH) and stimulates the pathway mTOR that enables the synthesis of many structures of the organism, the substance boosts anabolic processes, necessary for the development and regeneration of the organism. Thanks to its ability to form creatine indirectly, it enables the delivery of the right amount of energy to biochemical reactions. Its ability to improve blood flow helps to deliver the right amount of nutrients and oxygen to regenerating cells.

Participates in controlling adipose tissue
By helping to release growth hormone, it indirectly activates the processes of releasing fatty acids from deposited reserves. It promotes lipolysis and inhibits the process of glyconeogenesis, that way releasing fatty acids located in fat reserves and limiting their further deposition.

Helps to induce an erection
As a nitric oxide precursor, it helps men to get an erection.

Effectively increases L-arginine levels
Unlike L-arginine, L-citrulline is not susceptible to the activity of arginase, the enzyme that breaks down arginine to urea and ornithine. Because of the high concentration of the enzyme in the bowel, L-arginine supplementation used to increase the levels of the amino acid is sometimes not effective enough. As a direct L-arginine precursor in the organism and, at the same time, a compound resistant to arginase, L-citrulline can efficiently increase L-arginine levels in the plasma, that way exerting the desired effects associated with L-arginine.

Tolerated well by the organism
Taking L-citrulline, even in high amounts, is tolerated well by the organism. Unlike intensive L-arginine or L-ornithine supplementation, which in many cases leads to diarrhoea and bowel disorders, L-citrulline supplementation in doses reaching up to 20 g causes no adverse reactions of the digestive system.

Now L-Citrulline Pure Powder is a pure monopreparation containing L-citrulline, free of any redundant additives. Supplementing the diet with the amino acid helps to support numerous processes that take place in the organism. As an indirect precursor of nitric oxide formed in optimal amounts, it helps to normalise blood pressure and flow and prevents platelet aggregation, that way supporting the functioning of the circulatory system. By providing a substrate for the formation of the necessary amount of nitric oxide in the nervous system, it supports signalling in the organism. It is engaged in the processes of creatine synthesis and increases the amount of easily accessible energy substrates; therefore, it increases the infallibility of energy management. By participating in the urea cycle, the only efficient way of removing excessive toxic ammonia, it enhances detoxification processes and in that way makes sure that the homeostasis of the organism is maintained. L-Citrulline also boosts the release of growth hormone and activates the pathway mTOR, thanks to which it stimulates regenerative processes in the organism. As a nitric oxide precursor, it helps men to get an erection. Apart from highly efficient increase of L-citrulline and its derivatives, NOW L-Citrulline Pure Powder is tolerated very well by the digestive system when taken. The agent is recommended for people who follow a high-protein diet and want to increase the effectiveness of regenerative processes in the organism.

L-Citrulline

Information

What is L-Citrulline?

L-Citrulline is an α-amino acid, ornithine derivative. It was isolated for the first time from watermelon and this is how it gained its name, as citrullus in Latin means watermelon. Citrulline takes part in oxygen processes of energy production during effort, thanks to which it is especially attractive for sportsmen of endurance disciplines. It also takes part in urea cycle, also known as the Ornithine cycle, thanks to which it helps to get rid of excessive amounts of ammonia from the organism.

It converts to l-arginine in kidneys and scientific studies suggest that is increases its level even more effectively than in case of sole arginine. Moreover, the increase of arginine level resulting from citrulline supply is longer and more stable. Thanks to this, it contributes to the increase of nitric oxide and widening of blood vessel lumen. This property makes citrulline useful in preventing cardiological incidents. The positive influence on the circulatory system is also used in case of erection disorders, as increased nitric oxide may initiate more effective blood flow to sex organs.

L-Citrulline is contained in the composition of many pre-workout supplements and NO-boosters directed at the improvement of sports abilities of the organism, which may be found in the offer of muscle-zone.pl
