Not only does the name sound pretty intriguing, this supplement offers a host of benefits, particularly during training. One of the key benefits of Citrulline Malate (CM) is its effect on blood flow. Most gym-goers know that the ‘pump’ is essential during training to maximise performance and muscle growth. Let’s take a look at how CM works to induce a ‘pump’

When you ingest arginine, the body breaks it down into Citrulline and Ornitihine. Ornithine is a by-product and waste material of Arginine breakdown, which is then excreted from the body. Citrulline then stimulates Nitric Oxide (N.O.) production which promotes Vasodilation, or the widening of blood vessels. Vasodilation leads to increased blood flow, forcing more oxygen and nutrients into working muscle tissue, resulting in one seriously effective workout!

Another great benefit of using CM, is its ability to reduce ‘toxic build-up’ (Lactic Acid and Ammonia, which causes muscle pain during training) Feeling ‘the burn’ during training is great, but too much of it can cut down on your training duration and intensity. Furthermore, Citrulline Malate increases the production of ATP! We all need that boost of muscular endurance and energy during training.

I love using Biotech’s Citrulline Malate before my weight training sessions in the afternoons.

It comes in a really tasty flavour (Green Apple) but can also be there is also an unflavoured variant. Be sure to couple this amazing product with a serving of BCAA’s during your workout (CM helps your body utilise amino acids)

Better training session, improved recovery, and better results, who doesn’t want that?

PS: Ladies this is a safe and super effective pre-workout for you to use.

L-citrulline is a non-essential (conditionally essential) amino acid micro nutrient that the body cannot produce in sufficient quantities typically under greater strain, therefore replenishment might become necessary. When it comes to fruit, citrulline is found in large quantities in watermelon, for example. The synergistic combination of L-citrulline amino acid and malic acid is L-citrulline malate. Malic acid (malate) is an organic acid, which can be found in nature (for example in apple). L-citrulline amino acid is what L-arginine and L-ornithine amino acids are made of.
