One of the main ingredients in MoorePump is L-Citrulline Malate. Want to know why? Read on ... L-Citrulline is a non-proteinogenic amino acid (meaning it’s not involved in the synthesis of proteins in the body) that plays a key role in the Urea Cycle, a physiological process that facilitates the removal of ammonia from the body. Ammonia is a metabolic waste product generated from intense exercise that induces fatigue and can be toxic to the body if it builds up too much without clearance. This ammonia-eliminating effect of citrulline is one of main reasons we experience reduced fatigue when supplementing with Citrulline malate prior to training. The body can produce L-Citrulline through the breakdown of another conditionally essential amino acid, L-glutamine, or as a byproduct of L-arginine in the synthesis of nitric oxide. When citrulline enters the body, the kidneys convert it to arginine, which the body uses as “fuel” to generate nitric oxide. The greater increase in plasma arginine levels, the greater output of nitric oxide which leads to vasodilation, blood flow, performance, and pumps as well as enhanced removal of metabolic waste products generated from exercise. Now let’s take a look at the other half of citrulline malate — malic acid. Malic acid improves stamina and reduces muscle pain induced by intensive training bouts. Malic acid also enhances aerobic and anaerobic energy production as it serves an essential role in the Krebs cycle (citric acid cycle or TCA cycle). The Krebs cycle is responsible for converting the food we ingest into useable energy, specifically the generation of ATP, the cellular “currency” of exercise.
