L-Citrulline is an amino acid with the main benefits of muscle growth, sustained muscle protein synthesis, and post-training recovery. All of these benefits are attributed to elevated blood arginine levels which have lead to greater Nitric Oxide (NO) production, muscle protein synthesis, and faster recovery. The process in which Citrulline is effective for reducing fatigue during training comes from the exchange typically produced. Citrulline is produced when Ornithine combines with Carbamoyl Phosphate, which occurs during the urea cycle when your body removes nitrogen waste. The addition of supplementing Citrulline in the body is said to put the urea cycle in overdrive, allowing it to suck up more ammonia (composed of nitrogen molecules) which are produced by working muscles. This in combination reduces the fatigue caused by muscles at the source.
The excess of Citrulline triggers a stronger effect of arginine conversion into nitric oxide (NO). The increase in arginine in the blood leads to increased NO production, the increase of NO increases blood flow during exercise and allows for muscles to perform for longer while under duress, which gives weightlifters the ability to produce bigger muscle pumps. The mechanisms of Citrulline during exercise has more uses other than just increasing blood arginine levels, it has a wide range of benefits including elevated protein synthesis, creatine synthesis, and more effective BCAA utilitization by muscles during exercise. Supplementing with Citrulline has been growing in practice over the use of Arginine as studies have shown that Citrulline is more effective at increasing plasma arginine levels in the body.

I tried this product to help. It helps.
I always look for supplements that are non-GMO, non-soy etc., and this is one of those products. Excellent quality and this helps me get and maintain great erections. Just like taking an hour or two before a workout, the same rule applies to sex. I can perform all night.
I ordered hard rhino l-citrulline 6months ago then I tried bulk supplement brand l-citrulline honestly the bulk supplement l-citrulline is just a powder doesn't do anything . For example, doesn't give you any pump when you lift the weight I tried couple of time then I gave up I was feeling bad. Then I order directly from hard rhino there citrulline is world class pure l-citrulline as soon I took hardrhino l-citrulline I felt the difference. If you are ordering hardrhino l-citrulline then close your eyes and order that. I haven't try l-arginine free form I still have now brand l-arginine free form after I done with that pack I definitely give a try hardrhino brand l-arginine free form. Also, I have to tell you I order 1kg l- citrulline from bulk supplement its still sitting on my kitchen I have to throw that garbage. I never ever going to order from bulk supplement.
