Age Range 18-29
Notes for this study:
In this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled crossover trial, 32 young participants took 12 g of dextrose or 8 g of citrulline-malate with 12 g of dextrose in random order on 4 different occasions prior to a to-exhaustion test on a cycle ergometer.

There wasn't a notable or statistically significant difference between participants when taking citrulline versus placebo for mean watts, peak watts, average total work completed, or time to exhaustion on the cycle ergometer. Fatigue index, while not statistically significant (p=.077), was a little higher when taking citrulline.
