I once wrote a review on NPL products and the awesome way that they come out with products that have either individual profiles or individual ingredients that you can mix and match with other products like that in order to make your perfect combination. Cue today’s review NPL’s citrulline malate.
About the product:
I’ve written several articles in the past on what ingredients to look out for in an effective pre-workout product and citrulline malate was in the top 5 of those ingredients mentioned. It is an amazing product that works well in both stim and non-stim pre-workouts.
Citrulline is a non-essential amino acid, meaning that it can be produced in the body and does not need to be sourced externally for specific body functions. However, the amount produced within the body isn’t enough to be utilized effectively for any performance enhancing endeavours and, for this purpose, additional citrulline would need to be sourced.
The NPL Pure Citrulline Malate comes in a 240g container, which is a lot. This makes it a product that you can use even the high end of the dosing scale and still have the tub last you for about a month.
As I said above, citrulline malate is great as part of both stim and non-stim pre-workout cocktails. If you already have a pre-workout formula or product that you enjoy but want to kick up its effectiveness by a notch or two, then adding some of this product into that mix will definitely benefit you greatly. Additionally, what I used to do was purchase the individual ingredients for my own perfect pre-workout mixture and combine them to make my own pre-workout. NPL has a lot of these ingredients stocked individually so you could source from them. Obviously, citrulline malate would have to be on that list.
In terms of what it does, citrulline is able to help the body perform for longer periods of time. Thus, giving you the ability to keep pushing during a session without having to worry about crashing out from losing energy.
Citrulline also increases the bloods uptake in oxygen. This allows you to push a little harder every set without gassing out. As a result, your power output levels will increase, allowing to get stronger and make better gains
NPL 100% Pure Citrulline Malate has a serving suggestion of 6g. This is a decent dosage as the recommended dosing range is between 6-9g for performance specific purposes. You also get 240g per tub so it should last you for a decent amount of time even if you went to the high range of the aforementioned scale.
In terms of its usefulness, this product gets a 5/5 for me. I am a massive fan of citrulline, and its benefits and I think everyone would find that their performance levels will have that extra edge if they add it to their supplement arsenal.
