L-Citrulline, an alpha amino acid, is named after the watermelon from which citrulline was first extracted. L-citrulline is a naturally occurring amino acid. It is present in some foods such as watermelon and is also produced naturally by the human body. Our bodies convert L-citrulline into another amino acid called L-arginine and nitric oxide. L-citrulline supplement may help increase the supply of components your body needs to make certain proteins. It may also help open veins and arteries to improve blood flow and lower blood pressure.

  • Improve immune system function.
  • Maintain the function of joint movement.
  • Balance normal blood sugar levels.
  • Rich in antioxidants to absorb harmful free radicals.
  • Help maintain normal levels of cholesterol.
  • Maintain healthy lung function.
  • Improve mental clarity.
  • Reduce stress and overcome depression.
  • Improve the sexual function.
  • Using NO synthase to convert L-arginine into an intermediate of nitrogen oxides.

When citrulline is still an amino acid, it is not embedded in protein biosynthesis because it is not encoded in DNA. But some proteins still contain citrulline. These citrullines are produced by the peptide arginine iminase, which converts arginine to citrulline in the process of citrullination. Proteins that generally contain citrulline include human brain myelin basic protein, polykeratin filament protein, and some histones. For example, cellulose and vimentin can be citrullinated from cell death and tissue inflammation.

How does L-Citrulline Amino Acid Affect the Body

  • L-citrulline amino acid can interact with ammonia in the human body to generate arginine and nitric oxide. Nitric oxide can activate enzymes that cause smooth muscle relaxation. It can also relax human blood vessels, and is used to enhance male sexual function and treat sexual dysfunction. At the same time, it can also help maintain healthy lung function, improve mental clarity, and help brain nerve cells store and recall information.
  • Functions of anti-aging and immune-boosting. Studies have found that citrulline has strong antioxidant capacity, can scavenge hydroxyl groups, and increase arginine required for NO synthesis. It can effectively protect DNA and PMN from oxidative reactions. So it can be used in anti-aging and immune-boosting health care products, as well as in female beauty cosmetics, with the effect of skin care, anti-wrinkle, freckle and anti-aging.

    Citrulline amino acid is converted to arginine by specific enzymes. Arginine is an amino acid that works wonders for the heart and circulatory system, and it keeps the immune system functioning well. The relationship between citrulline and arginine supports healthy heart and immune system development. At the same time, the relationship is good for people with obesity and diabetes. Arginine increases the amount of nitric oxide in the blood, a substance that relieves pressure on blood vessels, treats erectile dysfunction, and perhaps prevents erection problems. While there are many psychological and physical problems that can cause impotence, nitric oxide is helpful for those who need to increase blood flow. In addition, it helps in the treatment of angina, high blood pressure and other cardiovascular diseases. Most importantly, it does not have any drug side effects.

    Citrulline is a non-protein amino acid that has the ability to form peptide bonds but is not involved in protein synthesis. Citrulline was once thought to be an intermediate product in the urea cycle. However, recent studies have shown that citrulline amino acid can be widely used in medicine, food, health care and other fields, and has good pharmacological effects.
