Source Naturals L-Citrulline Free-Form Amino Acid supports exercise recovery energy and detoxification. Source Naturals L-Citrulline is a natural amino acid that supports sports performance and good health, while at the same time helping the liver detoxify. Source Naturals L-Citrulline helps the body rid itself of ammonia, a by-product of intense exercise. This clearing enables the body to recover after a workout, and it frees ATP energy for enhanced uses such as respiration and signal transduction. Source Naturals L-Citrulline Free-Form Amino Acid supports exercise recovery, energy and detoxification.

Source Naturals L-Citrulline Free-Form Enhanced Athletic Performance
A little-known amino acid is an important key to enhancing athletic performance and helping the body recover after strenuous workouts. Citrulline is a nonessential amino acid that can be synthesized from other amino acids and is then converted into numerous compounds needed by the body. It enhances sports performance on a cellular level. Just as important, l-Citrulline supports the body in detoxification, clearing the liver from ammonia and converting it to urea for excretion. This enables the muscles to recover after exercise. Source Naturals is pleased to bring you l-Citrulline, a support for liver function, performance, exercise recovery, and
increased energy. It is an excellent tool for your continued health and well-being.
Exercise and Fatigue
During intense exercise, the oxygen in the muscle is used up quickly (aerobic energy). The body then calls upon ATP, adenosine triphosphate, for continued energy (anaerobic energy.) The use of ATP causes the muscles to produce IMP (inosine monophosphate) a nucleoside, and lactic acid and ammonia. These accumulate and establish muscle fatigue; in fact, fatigue is evaluated specifically from lactic acid and ammonia levels in the muscles. Citrulline helps the body deposit ammonia into the mitochondria of the liver cells. It is there converted to urea, channeled through the kidneys and excreted. Unconverted ammonia is toxic to the liver. Citrulline, then, supports the athlete in two main ways: it helps the body recover from fatigue, and it helps detoxify the liver, which supports overall health.
ATP, adenosine triphosphate, is known in biochemistry as the intracellular energy transfer. ATP transports chemical energy within cells. It also transports molecules across cell membranes and it helps synthesize macromolecules like proteins. It plays a key role in endocytosis—the process by which materials enter a cell without passing through the membrane by a folding and engulfing action, and in exocytosis—the process in which compounds are secreted from the cell to the cell surface. ATP is formed in numerous ways via many pathways; it is the energy of the cell, and through that, it controls cell functions like respiration and signal transduction.
Supplementation with l-Citrulline helps the body rid itself of ammonia and recover after exercise, freeing ATP energy for other uses.

Leaders of the Wellness Revolution
Source Naturals was created in 1982 by C.E.O Ira Goldberg to support each individual’s potential to enjoy optimal health. At that time, the kind of nutritional formulations he envisioned – for the maintenance of well-being and the enhancement of life – simply didn’t exist. The idea of combining many nutrients, herbs and nutraceuticals in one formulation, though common today, was then a rarity. Source Naturals pioneered the concept with Wellness Formula, now the industry’s #1 immune support product. Source Naturals subsequently introduced numerous award-winning formulas, recognized for their excellence in independent surveys and nutritional analyses. In addition to Wellness, these award-winners include Life Force Multiple, Mega-Kid Multiple, Inflama-Rest, the Skin Eternal line, Higher Mind, Essential Enzymes, Male Response, and more.
Source Naturals’ comprehensive Bio-Aligned Formulas help bring the power of alignment to your body. When formulating, Source Naturals evaluates the underlying causes of system imbalances, and then provides targeted nutrition to interdependent body systems. Source Naturals' line of more than 600 products also includes well-researched, single entity nutrients in their highest quality and most bioavailable forms. Source Naturals nutritional supplements are at the leading edge of today’s Wellness Revolution. This transformation in health consciousness also includes new perspectives in diet, lifestyle, emotional and spiritual development, and complementary health care. Source Naturals Strategy for Wellness is to provide education that empowers individuals to take responsibility for their health, rather than relying solely on outside medical authority. The result is people who are more productive and fulfilled, and a world that is stronger and healthier.
