Citrulline belongs to proteinogenic amino acids. Watermelons are the richest natural source of citrulline and its great amounts are also found in cucumber and pumpkins. In the body, the amino acid takes part in the urea cycle, a cycle of metabolic reactions leading to the formation of urea from ammonia, aspartate and carbon dioxide. Citrulline is also involved in the synthesis pathway of nitric oxide (which overlaps with the urea cycle) that is the main mechanism for blood vessel function.
Huge muscle pump
Along with arginine, citrulline is one of the most popular supplements boosting peripheral blood flow, resulting in the so-called muscle pump. Even though citrulline exerts its effects by increasing arginine levels in the body, consequently enhancing nitric oxide production, citrulline supplementation has been shown to be more effective in boosting its synthesis than arginine alone.
Because of vasodilatory effects, the amino acid improves the delivery of nutrients to hard working muscles and therefore their efficiency. Increased blood circulation also helps maintain an optimum biochemical environment in myocytes. This enables you to train more effectively which, combined with a motivating “pumped feeling”, may significantly improve training performance.
Due to the ability to widen blood vessel lumen, citrulline has been demonstrated to be capable of reducing hypertension. There are studies which indicate that the amino acid may be a safe way to regulate blood pressure.
Enhanced sexual function
Since citrulline has vasodilatory properties, it can also make it easier to achieve and maintain an erection. By stimulating blood supply to the penis, citrulline supplementation supports maximum sexual performance in men.
Increased energy levels
Citrulline shows the ability to promote physical performance not only due to its vasodilatory properties. It may also encourage energy metabolism. Since citrulline boosts adenosine triphosphate production, it is all the more important in the context of pre-workout supplementation. By increasing energy levels, it helps you incorporate varied training stimuli and thus accelerate your progress.
Enhanced muscle anabolism
Citrulline supplementation may also speed up muscle tissue development. It has been indicated to have a beneficial impact on the activation of the mTOR pathway which stimulates anabolic processes. Even though this mechanism of action of citrulline has not been fully recognised yet, it is believed that the amino acid is not so much an activator of the mTOR pathway but it rather regulates its suppression.
Increased growth hormone levels
Citrulline may also stimulate anabolic processes by promoting the release of growth hormone, but only after a workout. This is the next reason why physically active persons should take citrulline before exercise to enhance training effectiveness.
To sum up, MZ-Store Citrulline is a pre-workout supplement improving training quality in multiple ways. It does not only stimulate blood supply to peripheral tissues but also promotes muscle anabolism and energy metabolism. In addition, it can be used to increase your ability to achieve and maintain an erection.
Citrulline is suggested to have synergistic effects with leucine, i.e. one of the branched-chain amino acids, due to its ability to activate the mTOR pathway. Since BCAAs are also capable of reducing fatigue, a stack combining citrulline with these amino acids may be every effective. What is more, it is worth mixing citrulline with supplements based on BCAAs and caffeine to obtain a multi-purpose pre-workout blend.
Due to the dynamic development of the brand Muscle-zone, thereby increasing desire to meet the needs of people running a healthy and active lifestyle, we enriched our offer of sportswear (including specialist clothing), cosmetics and sports accessories, such as water bottles, shakers and pill boxes.
All these accessories have our new logo and the slogan "To be in the Muscle Zone", which constitutes a kind of personal mission statement of each of our clients.
However, to further meet their expectations, this time regarding healthy nutrition, we also introduced the phenomenal coconut oil by brand Soncone, having an amazing nutritional and care properties, and thus a very wide range of applications.

Citrulline Malate is formed by combining molecules of the citrulline amino acid and molecules of malic acid in one molecule, which has the chemical stability and is well soluble in liquids. Ionized malic acid has the ergogenic potential, providing a complementation to the citrulline potential of with new properties. It improves the exercise capacity and reduces the feeling of fatigue, and its supplementation is beneficial at any level of fitness. It affects the acid-base balance. It should be used by people who practice sports: strength, endurance and mixed strength-endurance. To achieve the best results, a dose of Citrulline Malate 6 g / 24h is recommended.
It is available as single-ingredient supplements and multi-component supplements (creatine stacks, no-boosters, amino acid supplements). It is used in the periodic, cyclic and constant supplementation.
Dosage: 3-8 g daily (in divided doses). The optimal dose to achieve beneficial results, proven experimentally, is 6 g / 24h.
Magnesium (element from the group of alkaline earth metals, atomic no. 12, a chemical symbol - Mg), one of the most important health microelements, participates in the synthesis process of the disintegration of high energy compounds and processes of transformation of hydrocarbons and fats. It affects the dilation of blood vessels and lower blood pressure, prevents hypercoagulable state. Shortages affect cardiac arrhythmias, malignant muscle cramps, insomnia and anxiety. It is a component of many dietary supplements and found in foods such as whole grain bread, legumes, buckwheat, rice, fish, meat, as well as chocolate, cocoa and nuts.
