A strong rationale for citrulline supplementation in short bowel

A strong rationale for citrulline supplementatArginine supplementation seems logical in situations where this amino acid becomes essential, for example after massive intestinal resection. Arginine is taken up and metabolised by the liver to a large extent and its supplementation is potentially unsafe. Citrulline is not captured by the liver and passes freely to the kidneys … Continue reading A strong rationale for citrulline supplementation in short bowel

Arginine (Citrulline/Watermelon) May Help Wound Healing

Arginine (Citrulline/Watermelon) May Help Wound Healing! Diabetes impairs wound healing and there are few therapeutic options to reverse it. Previous work has demonstrated the importance of nitric oxide for successful wound healing. In diabetes, NO synthesis is reduced in the wound milieu. The amino acid L-arginine is the only substrate for NO synthesis. The data … Continue reading Arginine (Citrulline/Watermelon) May Help Wound Healing

Watermelon May Reduce Fat & Improve Diabetes

Watermelon is rich in L-citrulline, an effective precursor of L-arginine. dietary supplementation with watermelon pomace juice or L-arginine increased serum concentrations of arginine; **reduced fat** lowered serum concentrations of **glucose**, free fatty acids, homocysteine, and dimethylarginines; enhanced GTP cyclohydrolase-I activity and tetrahydrobiopterin concentrations in the heart; and improved acetylcholine-induced vascular relaxation.Amplify’d from http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.govJ Nutr. 2007 … Continue reading Watermelon May Reduce Fat & Improve Diabetes
