5% Core L-Citrulline 3000 is a no-nonsense back to basics approach to achieving extra pumps or slightly lowering blood pressure, which can be useful in many situations. But the company went a little further, as like most of their core line of supplements they added a hint of glycerol to increase cellular hydration. The benefit of this product is not JUST that you can scoop (3000mg citrulline and 500mg glycerol), double scoop, or even triple scoop to get the desired effects, you can easily combine it with other products – just up the sertraline and glycerol as needed.
Citrulline is a nitric oxide booster, which causes an increase in vasodilation, a phenomenon where your blood vessels grow in diameter and facilitate better circulation. Not only does blood perfuse your tissues more deeply, but your heart and arteries don’t have to work as hard so that your heart rate and blood pressure drop in response to nitric oxide mediated vasodilation. Citrulline has been shown to increase power by increasing oxygen uptake, prolong athletic endurance, reduce delayed onset muscle soreness after exercise by 50%, increase growth hormone production after exercise, reduce amino acid catabolism, and activate muscle protein synthesis. Other supplement manufacturers have tried to combine L-citrulline and glycerol in a pre-workout with 300mg of caffeine, but unfortunately you can’t double or triple the dose of this pre-workout due to the high levels of caffeine. So, by having this supplement on its own, you can easily double/triple the amount of pump you get in, combining it with a pre-workout without increasing the other pre-workout ingredients – and still get an awesome pump.
