Effects Of L-citrulline Oral Supplementation On Polymorphonuclear Neutrophils Oxidative Burst And Nitric Oxide Production After Exercise

Effect Increase
Trial Design Double blind
Trial Length 24 hours
Number of Subjects 17
Sex Male
Age Range 18-29
Body Types Trained, Average
Notes for this study:
6g of citrulline malate prior to exercise appeared to prime neutrophils (immune cells) for neutrophil burst via increasing intracellular nitrate concentrations but failed to significantly influence both MDA concentrations and DNA damage. LDH and CK were also unchanged.
