NutraKey Citrulline Malate -- 200 g
I wasn't going to write a review of this stuff until I cycled off of it a few times to confirm my results. Of course, we are all different, but for me, the increased blood flow was quite noticeable. I found it more effective than L-citrulline, and certainly better than L-arginine. I actually use ~3-4g of this (about 1.5-2 scoops) in my morning drink mixed with a 2g scoop of matcha green tea powder, which itself has some great antioxidant properties. No doubt, the stuff is tart! You might consider adding some sort of additional low sugar juice or some other source of flavoring to balance out the tartness. But, I'm quite pleased, even pleasantly surprised with the results. I'd definitely buy again. And, it might be me, but it seemed to work better when cycling it. In other words, give your body a few days off of it once in a while. Though, I believe that is important for most supplements. It's kinda pricey, but it has lasted me a while. I think it's worth it. Feels good.

Good tasting product, just tastes citrusy and bitter. Hard to tell if it is working though, as I don't feel any "pump" in the gym when taking it with my pre workout.

Best citrulline product - in my experience
Since no one (at this date) has written a review about this brand of citrulline here, I just decided to write my positive experience with this brand.
I have tried four different products of citrulline, and in my experience this is by far the best.
All the different brands of citrulline I have tested have had the desired noticeable effect by an increase of nitric oxide in the blood. No need to elaborate on that. But why do I personally rank this highest of them all? I will simply write a little about the different products I tried:
One of the brands (forgotten the name) which I tried seemed to have a very variable production result when making their citrulline. Different tastes, and sometimes I felt sick after taking the citrulline.
NOW's Citrulline was actually the worst: It always made me feel a certain pain in the stomach and often it would make me feel rather nauseous as well.
I like Primaforce's Citrulline powder, but my biggest complaint is about the taste: The citrus taste itself is ok. But unfortunately another taste came in addition to the citrus; invariably all the boxes I have bought have had this additional dull taste bordering to a rotten one. But I have never felt sick after taking this citrulline - no adverse side effects at all, so I like this citrulline.
And so to NutraKey's L-Citrulline; I received it only a few days ago, and I must say that I am happy I bought it: It has the same effect as any good citrulline product should offer. But in addition I don't get any hypersensitivity reaction to it (like I got from two other brands), and the taste is pure citrus. It is just a very fresh taste – and there's no trace of that additional bad taste that Primaforce's Citrulline often has.
I certainly recommend this product.
