Notes for this study:
In men complaining of fatigue and given citrulline at 6g daily for 22 days, there was an increase in creatine phosphate resynthesis rates and reduced reports of fatigue. A large increase in aerobic ATP production was noted on day 3 (34%), but since it was attenuated back to baseline at day 15 the results were not statistically significant.
