Raw Powders™offers pure L-Citruline Malate powder with no additives!What is L-Citruline?
L-Citrulline is one of the three amino acids in the Urea cycle (other 2 are L-Arginine and L-Ornithine) L-Citruline turns into L-Arginine after absorption. Approximately 83% of orally ingested citrulline appears to be taken up by the kidneys where it is converted into L-Arginine.
While L-Arginine is poorly absorbed taking L-Citruline may be a reasonable option for those that are seeking faster improvement in performance.
IMPORTANT! Arginine can increase plasma arginine levels, for a short period of time. However, citrulline provides a more prolonged boost in plasma arginine.
Why Citruline Malate?
Adding malic acid to citruline enhances pharmaceutical stability and improves it’s absorption.
