L-Citrulline is commonly used to promote overall athletic performance and especially for endurance exercise or intense physical activity. The α-amino acid was first extracted from watermelon (Lat. Citrullus), which is from what it got its name. It is sometimes used together with L-arginine, as it is converted into the latter in the body. Adding supplemental L-Citrulline to your diet allows for a greater amount of unabsorbed L-Arginine after the former pass through the digestive system. Thus, the two amino acids complement each other synergistically.
- In bodybuilding and sports, it is used to increase energy and to improve athletic performance.
- As it functions as a vasodilator, widens blood vessels, and reduces blood pressure, it may support heart health.
- Used as a support for cognitive function, such as e.g. dementia.
- As a remedy for fatigue, muscle weakness, and erectile dysfunction.

As long as suggested serving sizes are adhered to, this supplement is safe. However, those who have had liver or kidney problems in the past should not take any amino acids without talking first with their doctor. Women who are pregnant or nursing should do the same.
