    Could the spelling (correct: Citrulline) have been an issue? By the way what do you mean by "an approved description"?

  4. Citrulline is a non-essential amino acid formed in the mitochondria by a combination of carbon-dioxide, ammonia, and ornithine. Outside the mitochondria, citrulline can be converted to arginine.
    Citrulline malate is a salt form of the amino acid. Malate or malic acid, is found in fruits, and is a part of the Krebs Cycle, and boosts the effects of citrulline by recycling pyruvate and lactate, thus promoting energy production and cutting fatigue.

    Some benefits of citrulline malate:
    1) Removal of excess lactic acid concentration in cells, and detoxification and removal of ammonia from liver and muscle cells, leading to reduction in fatigue levels. Thanks to the Krebs Cycle link, citrulline malate enhances lactic acid metabolism, freeing muscle cells from fatigue. Overall, this leads to more intense training and faster recovery.
    2) Citrulline malate supports overall healthy metabolism and energy production. Citrulline malate is involved in glycogen metabolism, contributes to enhancement of ATP levels as well as levels of cellular phosphocreatine.

    If I were to start taking this and BA, would I ever need to really cycle off it? Neither of them sound like they are stimulants.

  8. No cycling needed (unless for financial reasons). I absolutely loved Cit Malate at 6g per day. I noticed it was great for recovery and less DOMs.

    6g/day of Citrulline Malate is the magic number for most.
