    Citrulline Malate dosing


    Anyone ever use Citrulline in high doses?

    I love the Citrulline / Beta Alanine combo but due to price, only use 5-6g of CM pre workout only.

    Finally, now i can get good deals and was thinking of upping the dose but first i'd like to know if anyone else has and the results they got. I don'twant to use high doses if it doesn't do anything.

    Don't know what you consider a high dose but I've ran it @ 4-5g along with a bunch of other ingredients

    Ivtake beta alanine alone at 2grams pre and post not sure if you get more of a kick but 2grams seems to be sufficent enough. Never really took cm but lookingvinto trying it out.

    I see no real reason to dose any higher than 6grams/day.

    As long as you're getting 3-6 grams of BA throughout the day, the timing isn't really important. The consistent dosing will lead to the benefit. There aren't really any time specific advantages to Beta Alanine intake.

    So I suggest taking it pre and post but there's no time frame but I believe it works better that way and if you want an extra dose in the am. But more than 6grams is to much.

    Nutaplanet is the brand i use. Their Beta Alanine as well.

    I've tried these 2 supps in so many combinations, including trying each solo but the combination is unbeatable.

    I only train 4 days a week so i only use the CM 4 days a week but was considering increasing that to daily on off days and twice a day on training days.

    Honestly I think the most benefit you're going to get from it would probably be at 6 or so grams. I think if you were dosing higher than 10 it'd be like throwing it away.

    If you must a 5/5 or 6/4 split would probably be the most effective.

    One before workout and one any other time in the day, with the bigger dose (if you go 6/4) preworkout.

    i was on incarnate for about a month, seeing nice results. then i noticed body octane had ba and cit mal and i really liked body octane, so i bought some cit mal and started taking 3 gms with my doses of incarnate-the difference was immediate and dramatic, stayed on this for another 2 months-been a fan of cit mal every since. i don't think 6-8 gms cit mal is needed in one dose, i think splitting it into 2 doses would show same effects.

    so basically, if you took the cit mal in the morning you would have the same benefit if you took it pre workout (if u lift at night)? so should i be taking this in my off days too?

    Currently I take 3g 3-4x day. I may just be upping the PW dose and see if any difference.
