L-citrulline, reduces muscle fatigue

The organic compound citrulline is an α-amino acid. Its name is derived from citrullus, theLatin word for watermelon, from which it was first isolated in 1914 by Koga & Odake. It was finally identified by Wada in 1930.[2] It has the idealized formulaH2NC(O)NH(CH2)3CH(NH2)CO2H. It is a key intermediate … Continue reading
