L(+)-Citrulline is an alpha amino acid, the name comes from the watermelon that first extracted L(+)-Citrulline. L(+)-Citrulline is produced by ornithine and amino formyl phosphate in the urea cycle or catalyzed by nitric oxide synthase (NOS) to produce arginine. Arginine is oxidized to N- hydroxyl arginine, then oxidized to citrulline and releases nitric oxide. L(+)-Citrulline can relax human blood vessels, enhance male sexual function and treat sexual dysfunction. Maintaining healthy lung function and improving brainpower. L(+)-Citrulline has functions of storing and transmitting brain neurons.
