L-Citrulline Malate: Boost Your Endurance & Work Capacity
A commonly expressed problem among athletes, is finding ways to improve their endurance and stamina.
Specifically, what variables introduced in training can reduce and delay fatigue?
While there are many variables an athlete will experiment with in his or her training, a viable solution is a proper supplementation regimen, aimed with the goal of performing more work over a longer period of time.
If you are an athlete looking to improve your endurance and stamina, adding the non-essential amino acid L-Citrulline Malate may give you the results you deserve.
What can L-Citrulline Malate do for you?
L-Citrulline Malate is an important component of the urea cycle. The urea cycle is essentially part of the waste removal mechanism of the body, eliminating harmful toxins and metabolites.
With a higher availability of this amino acid, the urea cycle is able to keep up with the increase in metabolites that result from protein breakdown, which occurs during and after exercise.
Do you want to delay the onset of fatigue?
Then you need to use L-Citrulline Malate in your pre, intra and post workout routines.
Although increasing the length of workouts and delaying fatigue are certainly key properties of L-Citrulline Malate, it also has other benefits.
LCM has been shown to increase the size of blood vessels, through vasodilation, promoting blood flow and oxygen delivery to critical muscles during exercise.
An athlete can expect improvements in recovery time and further delays in the onset of DOMS as well as decreasing the duration of DOMS after it has set in.
And, what’s really cool? In a 2010 study, supplementation with L-Citrulline Malate increased growth hormone levels to a measurable higher level than compared to a placebo group.
Who should take L-Citrulline Malate?
Athletes, bodybuilders, CrossFitters, endurance athletes and any athlete who desires delayed fatigue, greater blood flow, potentially higher growth hormone levels post training and a shorter duration DOMS.
If you aren’t sure about dosing, it’s recommended to start with 3g daily, and assess your tolerance and results. The suggested sweet spot is 4g, however there are some recommendations stating that up to 8g/daily is fine.
Take L-Citrulline Malate approximately 15-30 minutes before your workout and continue to drink during your training. L-Citrulline Malate is a great addition to any pre-workout due to its vasodilation properties, but also a great intra workout supplement to promote stamina and recovery.
