im not taking it yet, everday, i currently take 4 scoops of xtend during the workout. But im gonna be adding nos ether preworkou,which supposedly has a lot of citruline malate in it. I wanted to know if this would be over doing it.

minimum dosage should be around 6g, but I know of people who have used up to 18g and had amazing results from it. I wouldnt go over 15 myself tho.

wow thats alot what do you see at these dosages
how long did you or are you taking it?
you still get good pumps with, or are the pumps even better when you take it every day?

You will see energy/pumps from it of course, but also it stimulates your immune system and also clears endotoxins out of your body.
I only take it for about 2 weeks with a friend, first week being at 6g, 2nd week at 12-15g and I noticed the change immediatly the first time i took my 12 g dosage.

alright so its real close to the minimum dosage amount, so you should feel benefits, but I still like taking around 12-15g.

Ah yes my bad I forgot about the Xtend, sorry. I always take Xtend exactly how it say for directions which is a lot of scoops and goes by fast but it works so ya take the recommended dosage of that also. Than you will be getting around 10 or so grams of CM which im positive you will love.

I've only gone as high as six daily, and LOVED it. I can't imagine 12.

My question is: what are the oxidative effects of high/regular doses of citrulline?
10-20-2008, 11:48 PM
In one of the few human studies, researchers examined the effects of supplementation with six grams of citrulline malate daily for 15 days .
The results show that citrulline malate led to a significant reduction in the sensation of fatigue, a 34% increase in the rate of oxidative ATP production during exercise, and a 20% increase in the rate of phosphocreatine recovery after exercise. This indicates a larger contribution of oxidative ATP synthesis to energy production.
