Citrulline malate is an amino acid that naturally occurs in your body. It is - as you would expected from a body own substance - completely safe. In the area of bodybuilding, citrulline malate is primarily known for its dramatic increase of the pump during exercise, but it also has a host of other benefits, virtually any athlete from endurance athlete to professional bodybuilder can profit from. But how exactly does citrulline malate maximize your pump to give you that breathtaking, motivating feel during exercise that Arnold liked better than sex? Citrulline acts as a substrate for the arginine - nitric oxide synthase - nitric oxide pathway and stimulates the production of the enzyme nitric oxide synthase, which is responsible for the nitric oxide production in your veins.
Nitric oxide serves as a chemical messenger in your blood vessels, causing a relaxation of the smooth muscle tissue of your blood vessels that results in a dilatation of your veins and a maximum blood flow to your hard-working muscles. This extreme blood supply leads to a murderous, literally skin-bursting pump. But the pump is not all...
Maximizing the blood supply to your hard-working muscles is equivalent to maximizing the supply of oxygen, nutrients, and natural anabolic hormones to provide your hungry muscles with everything they need for an extreme performance and maximum endurance during exercise.
At the same time toxic metabolic waste products that are inevitably produced in your muscles as part of the energy metabolism during exercise, will be transported away from your muscles much faster, which is extremely important because with increasing amounts of these toxic waste products, the contractility of your muscles continues to decline, until you finally reach the point of muscle failure.
