What is Citrulline Polyhydrate

Citrulline malate is one of the most effective nitric oxide boosters on the market. It will provide you with incredible pumps and an increased blood, nutrient and oxygen supply to the muscle. Just like arginine, it is a totally benign, naturally occurring compound, albeit with significantly more potent NO boosting effects.

The real innovation is yet not citrulline malate, but the combination of the potent natural nitric oxide booster with Genetic Nutrition's unique Polyhydrate buffering technology. The result is the most bioavailable, uniquely effective citrulline malate supplement your money can buy.

Due to its significantly increased potency, Citrulline Polyhydrate will have noticeable effects on skeletal muscle hypertrophy and strength gains. If you train with Citrulline Polyhydrate you will be able to train longer, harder and more efficiently; and due to its beneficial effects on muscle soreness and recovery, you can do so without running the risk of overtraining while experiencing faster and more pronounced gains than ever before.

Citrulline Polyhydrate is completely stimulant free and can thus be taken in the AM and PM and/or be combined with every other pre-workout on the market.

Why is Citrulline Polyhydrate superior to regular citrulline malate products?

Citrulline Polyhdrate uses the same unique Polyhydrate Buffering Technology you know from Creatine Polyhydrate, Glutamine Polyhydrate, Arginine Polyhydrate and DAA Polyhydrate. As different as these products may be, they all have one thing in common: An unrivalled bioavailability which they owe to the unique combination of an acid buffer that protects the active ingredients from being destroyed by the stomach acid and a precisely matched dose of probiotic bacteria which increase the absorption and bioavailability of Citrulline Polyhydrate by an additional 20%.

On a gram for gram, basis Citrulline Polyhydrate is significantly more potent than regular citrulline malate. With almost 100% of the active compound is actually absorbed, Citrulline Polyhydrate will produce maximal results at minimal dosages.

Citrulline Malate and its effects on nitric oxide production

Citrulline is a naturally occurring amino acid that is involved in a whole host of biological processes in our body. For bodybuilders, the most important of these processes probably is the production of nitric oxide. The substance that’s responsible for widening the arteries, increasing the oxygen supply to the muscle and increasing the pump you feel while you train.


Usually, nitric oxide is produced from arginine via endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS). In this process, arginine acts as a trigger and substrate at a time. In practice, an increased availability of arginine will thus increase the production of eNOS and accelerate its own conversion to nitric oxide.


By now, you are probably asking yourselves how the previously discussed process is related to citrulline. It would, after all, appear more prudent to use arginine instead – wouldn’t it? Indeed, it would. In practice, the ingestion of a large bolus of arginine will yet inevitably increase its own breakdown in the liver. The overall impact on the amount of arginine in the blood would be negligible and the corresponding increase in nitric oxide production at best mediocre.
This is where citrulline comes into play. In contrast to arginine it will bypass the liver, arrive at the kidneys, which will then convert it to arginine and release it into systemic circulation. The net result, a significant increase in nitric oxide production has been confirmed in a number of scientific studies.

What are the benefits of an increased nitric oxide production?

Nitric oxide is present in the innermost layer of the blood vessels. In those so-called endothelial cells, it acts as a messenger molecule that causes the musculature of the blood vessels to relax. The arteries widen and the blood flow increases. While you train you will feel this effect in form of skin bursting pumps and an increased vascularity. These are yet only the most obvious benefits which will be complemented by an increase in blood, oxygen, nutrient and hormone supply during your workouts.

The citrulline induced increase in oxygen and nutrient supply will thus allow you train longer and harder than ever. The optimal hormone supply will allow for maximal strength and size gains and the accelerated clearance of metabolic waste will postpone the onset of muscular fatigue, accelerate your recovery and minimize your risk of overtraining.


In addition, increased levels of nitric oxide have been shown to improve the contractile properties of the musculature, increase the uptake of glucose, the recruitment of satellite cells and the production of myotropic (anabolic) factors.
Even the pump itself or rather the corresponding increase in cell volume will directly contribute to muscle growth. Several scientific studies have been able to show that the cell swelling exerts a profound anabolic effect on the muscle tissue. This mechanism is directly related to the anabolic signalling processes that are triggered when the increase in cell volume stretches the muscle fascia. Fascia is a tightly interwoven network of fibrous tissue that is wrapped around the muscle fibres to provide structural integrity.
