Heathwise L-Citrulline DL Malate
You can obtain Citrulline from food, especially watermelons, and it can be also manufactured from ornithine, in the body’s urea cycle. This cycle helps rid your body of ammonia, a waste product of protein digestion.

After your digestive system metabolizes citrulline malate into citrulline, enzymes in your liver cells convert it into arginine, then into nitric oxide in a process that also produces new citrulline molecules. Nitric oxide is well known for its function as a vasodilator. Supplementing L-citrulline also increases ornithine and arginine plasma content.
As a dietary supplement take 2 teaspoon between meals. May be taken with your favourite fruit or vegetable juice or as part of pre-workout routine.
Note: A 2008 study published by the "British Journal of Nutrition" found that short-term supplementation of citrulline in 2 to 15 g servings is safe and well-tolerated.
L-arginine and L-ornithine are subject to reduced absorption when supplemented in doses of 10g or more, which can result in diarrohea. L-Citrulline does not have this side-effect, and since it increases plasma levels of all three amino acids, it may be the preferred as a supplement over L-arginine. L-citrulline doubles ornithine plasma content.
