While you'll typically hear L-citrulline being used for sports performance and cardiovascular health, we found it to be a great brain health boost as well! Most of its benefits come from the impact it has on nitric oxide production...
Here are a just a few reasons we felt it was necessary for our Oracle Nootropic formula-
Improves blood flow:
L-citrulline has been shown to increase the production of nitric oxide (NO) in the body. Nitric oxide helps to relax and dilate blood vessels, which can improve circulation and blood flow to the brain.
This can also improve cognitive function and may even help to reduce the risk of stroke.
Enhances memory and learning:
Some studies have found that L-citrulline can improve memory and learning by increasing the production of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that is important for these functions.
Reduces brain fog and improves mental clarity:
L-citrulline may help to reduce brain fog and improve mental clarity by increasing blood flow to the brain and increasing the production of neurotransmitters that are involved in brain function.
May reduce the risk of neurological disorders:
L-citrulline may also have neuroprotective effects and may be beneficial in the prevention and treatment of certain neurological disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease. This is due to its influence on nitric oxide production, thereby decreasing inflammation and supporting blood flow.
Helps to reduce stress and improve mood:
L-citrulline has been shown to have stress-reducing and mood-boosting effects, possibly due to its ability to increase the production of neurotransmitters that are involved in these processes.
With numerous benefits for brain health, including improving blood flow, enhancing memory and learning, reducing brain fog, and potentially reducing the risk of neurological disorders, it's no wonder we had reports in our initial studies of decreased anxiety, brain fog, and hyperactivity.
We hope this clarifies why L-citrulline was very necessary for our brain formula: Oracle.
