L-citrulline is a non-essential amino acid synthesized from the breakdown of L-ornithine and L-arginine during the urea cycle.
L-citrulline is not an amino acid coded for by DNA, and in that sense, is not involved in protein synthesis. However, L-citrulline is a central part of the urea cycle, which allows the body to dispose of excess nitrogen.
L-citrulline is frequently consumed by athletes as part of their workout supplement program.
