Flushed from citrulline

I started citrulline malate today. It is an arginine precursor. I noticed that several hours later, my face is flushed. Do nitric oxide boosters like these cause that?

Agree, dilates blood vessels/capillaries. I guess they are the same? A capillary is a blood vessel?



Glad to see someone taking citrulline. It is GREAT! not only that but lowers BP and improves heart health in those with higher than recommended BP.

A 2010 randomized double-blind study (the gold standard of research studies) involving 41 men, discovered that a single dose of citrulline malate (CM) resulted in a significant increase in the number of barbell bench presses (accounting for 52.92% more repetitions) and a 40% decrease in muscle soreness after exercise. “We conclude that the use of CM might be useful to increase athletic performance in high-intensity anaerobic exercises with short rest times and to relieve post exercise muscle soreness,” wrote the study authors.2

Pérez-guisado J, Jakeman PM. Citrulline malate enhances athletic anaerobic performance and relieves muscle soreness. J Strength Cond Res. 2010;24(5):1215-22. doi: 10.1519/JSC.0b013e3181cb28e0

Anyway, citrulline and beta alanine together give you a big flush but increase VO2 max more than citrulline by itself and by a diff mechanism. Takes a while for beta alanine to help but worth it bro.

I never got flushed when using citrulline malate. I can't take it though as it causes me to break out with cold sores.

That makes sense. Citruline is a precursor for arginine. Arginine is known to kick up herpes if you have it. When my herpes flares up, I take Lysine 1000mg the first day, then to 500mg day till the flare-up is done. It works pretty quickly. So, if you use have a problem with citruline, take lysine with it.

Thanks dude. Yea, I used to take Lysine many years back when I was stressed out, or when I would get a breakout, but I could never tell if it ever really helped or not. True Nutrition used to sell the powder/raw form of it, so i'd buy a lot, and it would last me forever. They stopped carrying it, and I never really looked elsewhere. My last job, when I worked at various clinics, I would just walk over and ask for Valacyclovir and Acyclovir, and I would get the meds by time I was off work, so that was another reason why I stopped using Lysine as well. I'm not at those clinics anymore, so I should probably look back into Lysine since driving all the way to see a Doc is a PITA these days.

If I control my stress and anxiety, and if i get enough rest, i'm usually fine...but that crap wipes me out mentally, and I get body aches all day when I have them, like a low-grade fever.

...probably got them eating tainted pu$$y or something.... LMAO!!!

BTW....I use citrulline malate, but I have to limit it to a few times per week instead of doing it every day. Seems to help. I throw it in with my intra-w/o drink, 8-10 grams of it. I have 2 bags I have had forever (well, 1 now), so I am just using up what I have
