Increase blood flow
The pharmacokinetic advantage of L-Citrulline is that it is not subject to any elimination by the liver prior to entering the bloodstream. Conversely, L-Arginine is subject to extensive elimination by the gut wall and liver. The majority of L-Citrulline is converted to L-Arginine in the kidney. (1) Once in circulation, L-Arginine is readily converted into L-Citrulline and nitric oxide, which in turn serves as an L-Arginine precursor (see figure below).
*Citrulline ingestion enables effective supply of arginine.
L-Citrulline Malate is mixed 1:1 (Malic Acid + L-Citrulline). Basically, the L-Citrulline is cut in half! Most brands use L-Citrulline Malate 1:1 ratio due to cost (cheap!) – about 50% less per kilogram than Pure L-Citrulline.
Most L-Citrulline on the market today is made from duck feathers and human hair—not ours!
Combining Kaged Muscle’s L-Citrulline with BCAAs is the perfection combination to help achieve your fitness goals.

I would first like to begin by saying Kaged citrulline was the best I ever used, but I am saddened to see it was out of stock when I came back to purchase more. I used to be on blood pressure medication, and the prescription was not doing a great job at controlling my blood pressure. Doctors kept wanting to increase the doses until something worked. I would often be back in stage-2 hypertension within 12 hours of taking the medication. I decided to give citrulline a try instead and found it effective at controlling my blood pressure and consistently keeping it in healthy ranges. Kaged citrulline works so well that I was able to stop taking the blood pressure medication and replace it with daily citrulline. Of course, you do not want to do this without talking to a doctor to avoid anything life-threatening.
My only complaint is that 2g (1 scoop) is insufficient for the average person looking to take citrulline in the first place. I use multiple scoops. I mix it in a cup of water with some bottled lemon juice. I find the citrulline mixes well and is not grainy.
Hard item to come by anymore. Price is jacked and product quality seems to have changed. It used to be thinner but now it seems much more grainy like creatine.
Love being able to mix my own pre-workouts. Mixes well, clean ingredients, great pumps, love Kaged Muscle!
Love citrulline. I buy Kaged because it’s one of the only ones that’s informed sport. Great price too. I go unflavoured due to allergies, it’s a little sour but not gross or anything, just reminds me of a sour lime taste. Kaged has the best customer service around, always super friendly and quick to reply. 1 scoop is 2g, so bottle doesn’t last as long as it seems as 3x scoopsis required for a “full citrulline”dose. But for the price, not an issue at all.
