Researchers set out to test the efficacy and safety of oral L-citrulline, a precursor of nitric oxide, in improving male health in people who were looking to support healthy sexual performance. Past studies have found that L-arginine supplementation improves nitric oxide-mediated vasodilation and endothelial function. However, oral administration has been hampered by extensive presystemic metabolism.
