Recent Reserch on Citrulline Malate not looking good

Per Brad Schoenfeld:

Quote:
The evidence is mounting that citrulline malate is ineffective as an ergogenic supplement. Most alarming was the finding that the product contained only half the citrulline stated on the label!

"The present investigation also included chemical analysis of the supplement used, which concluded that the ratio of citrulline to malate was not equivalent to the ratio stated by the manufacturer. Analysis suggests that the supplement contained just over half the manufacturers stated dose of citrulline. Subsequent analysis of four additional commercially available CM products, with a purported ratio of 2:1 (citrulline to malate), shows that only one of these products had a value close to the ratio stated by the manufacturers."

Citrulline malate supplementation does not improve German Volume Training performance or reduce muscle soreness in moderately trained males and females

Andrew J. Chappell, Daniel M. Allwood, Rebecca Johns, Samantha Brown, Kiran Sultana, Annie Anand and Trevor Simper

Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition201815:42

ABSTRACT:

Background
Use of supplements to aid performance is common practice amongst recreationally active individuals, including those without a sufficient evidence base. This investigation sought to assess whether acute supplementation with 8 g of citrulline malate (CM) (1.11: 1 ratio) would improve anaerobic performance.

Methods
A randomised double blind placebo control trial was employed, using a counterbalanced design. We recruited recreationally active men and women to take part in an isokinetic chair protocol, based on German Volume Training (GVT) whereby participants attempted to perform 10 sets of 10 repetitions against a force representing 70% of their peak concentric force.

Results
The number of repetitions achieved over the course of the GVT was 94.0 ± 7.9 and 90.9 ± 13.9 for placebo and CM respectively. There was no significant difference between the placebo and CM treatment for number of repetitions (P = 0.33), isometric (P = 0.60), concentric (P = 0.38), or eccentric (P = 0.65) peak force following the GVT. Total muscle soreness was significantly higher in the CM compared to the placebo treatment following the GVT protocol over 72 h (P = 0.01); although this was not accompanied by a greater workload/number of repetitions in the CM group.

Conclusions
We conclude that an acute dose of CM does not significantly affect anaerobic performance using an isokinetic chair in recreational active participants. Practical implications include precaution in recommending CM supplementation. Coaches and athletes should be aware of the disparity between the chemical analyses of the products reviewed in the present investigation versus the manufacturers’ claims.

The most disturbing thing to me is the supplements continuing to not contain what they're supposed to.

Yea TE, that is a huge concern to me too.

There have been some good points brought up at another forum in regards to it's use. This research shows that it may not be beneficial from an ergogenic standpoint, but there are many who use it for other purposes such as ammonia elimination, endothelial cell health, vascularity, and as a natural way (well supplemental) for BP control. The stuff is pretty cheap too. I usually get mine from True Nutrition, so hopefully it's gtg.


That being said, I have a hard time taking it and can't take too much because it breaks me out with cold sores

I never thought it did much, but perhaps my supplement didn't have what was claimed on the container.

It will send me running to the bathroom at 6 grams. At least I think I’ve narrowed it down to CM.
