Specifications : Over the past decade, University Paris Descartes is working on the interest of the use of L-citrulline to preserve the muscle mass in cases of malnutrition or sarcopenia. Indeed, this is an essential factor ensuring the independence and quality of life. This research led to several patents, the creation of the Laboratory CITRAGE and the development of ProteoCIT.

Justification of use : With aging, splanchnic sequestration* of amino acids is increased. This causes a reduction of postprandial protein synthesis and induces resistance to refeeding and sarcopenia in the frail elderly. It is therefore essential to promote postprandial protein synthesis to limit the loss of muscle mass, strength and function.

* Phenomenon of amino acid uptake by the liver and the intestine, making them less available to the muscle for muscle protein synthesis.

Composition

L-citrulline, naturally present in our body is the only amino acid known beyond the splanchnic sequestration * and acting directly on muscle protein synthesis.

* Phenomenon of amino acid uptake by the liver and the intestine, making them less available to the muscle for muscle protein synthesis.
