**Urea Cycle Disorder patients please see below for information on available discounts and requirements**
Citrulline is found in high concentration in the liver and is not a component of any major proteins or enzymes, and therefore not much information is available. The amino acid Citrulline is required to detoxify the liver from ammonia, which is a waste product of the body from oxidation. Citrulline promotes energy and stimulates the immune system. This unusual amino acid is formed in the urea cycle by the addition of carbon dioxide and ammonia to L-Ornithine. It is then combined with Aspartic Acid to form Arginosuccinic Acid, which is later metabolized into the amino acid L-Arginine.
