Watermelon Contains Citrulline:

A Known Energy Booster!

Used by many athletes and body builders, Citrulline gives the body long lasting energy and defends against muscle fatigue.

The right amount of Citrulline and vitamin levels give us increased energy and maintain the immune system.  

Citrulline is an amino acid our body uses to produce another amino acid called arginine, which helps to divide cells and heal wounds.

Citrulline plays an important role in maintaining the stability of acid in the body. It’s needed to balance the nitrogen and metabolic processes in the body.  It’s needed to detoxify and take away ammonia from muscle and liver cells.

With a lack of Citrulline, your body could have a Citrulline deficiency - a condition that can be detected with vitamin deficiency tests. The most common symptoms of Citrulline deficiency is fatigue and sustained weakness of muscles.

You’ll find Citrulline in numerous specialized proteins in the body; specifically in the hair, skin, and the cells of the nervous system.

Foods rich in Citrulline include milk, legumes, meat, fish and of course, watermelon.

According to Science Daily, a volunteer study revealed that blood levels of arginine (synthesized in the body from the Citrulline) were 11 percent higher in volunteers who drank watermelon juice. To achieve these results, participants in the study drank 24 ounces of watermelon juice each day.  After which the same participates increased their consumption to 48 ounces a day for an additional three weeks and blood levels of arginine rose to 18 percent.

Preliminary medical research suggests that arginine produced from Citrulline might aid in the treatment of high blood pressure, unhealthy blood sugar levels and vascular disorders associated with sickle-cell disease.

Citrulline so How Much is contain?

Citrulline content ranged from 3.9 to 28.5 mg/g dry weight (dwt) and was similar between seeded and seedless types (16.6 and 20.3 mg/g dwt, respectively). Red flesh watermelons had slightly less citrulline than the yellow or orange flesh watermelons (7.4, 28.5 and 14.2 mg/g dwt, respectively). Rind contained more citrulline than flesh on a dry weight basis (24.7 and 16.7 mg/g dwt, respectively) but a little less on a fresh weight (fwt) basis (1.3 and 1.9 mg/g fwt, respectively). These results indicate that watermelon rind, an underutilized agricultural waste, offers a source of natural citrulline.

Citruaid a great source of Citrulline?

Citruaid™ L-Citrulline is a quick absorbing amino acid that promotes vascular dilation which improves oxygen and blood circulation throughout your body; resulting in peak performance and faster recovery. L-Citrulline increases endurance recovery and reduces muscle fatigue.*

When muscles become fatigued, lactic acid builds up, resulting in the familiar burn. L-Citrulline helps breakdowns lactic acid while at the same time assisting the body in eliminating harmful ammonia.*
