CITRULLINE ETHYL ESTER – is a stratified version of citrulline. Citrulline is an amino acid. The formation of ethyl ester is the result of a type of chemical reaction known as esterification, which happens when an amino acid is exposed to alcohol. The stability and bioavailability of citrulline increases when it is subjected to the esterification process. Citrulline is an endogenous amino acid that is not involved in the formation of proteins. In the human body, it is formed from ornithine.

Citrulline is one of the three amino acids that are involved in the urea cycle. The other two are ornithine and arginine. It should be noted that adequate availability of citrulline is essential for the smooth course of the urea cycle. Its efficient course allows the elimination of ammonia as a by-product of amino acid metabolism, which takes on additional importance in high-protein diets. Citrulline is both a precursor of arginine and a metabolite of transformations in which arginine participates. Citrulline ethyl ester is an element that can be found in technologically advanced supplements for athletes.

Dosage: 3-5 g per serving.
