At the moment our own citrulline tablets are no longer available, we refer you to the citrulline from another brand
Pasio Citrulline contains L-citrulline, known for its energizing properties and its ability to reduce muscular fatigue. Citrulline has shown to regenerate ATP in muscle ells. Therefore it is clinically used in patients for a faster recovery from surgery as well as by endurance and strength athletes.
Citrulline and Ammonia
Ammonia is a toxic metabolic by product produced by your muscles, especially during intense exercise. Ammonia is removed from the body by the liver's urea cycle. Ammonia is very toxic to the body and muscles; the build up of ammonia in the body results in a rapid onset of fatigue. If the levels are not reduced, they can lead to muscle catabolism and interference with brain function. Severe ammonia toxicity can lead to organ failure, and eventually death. But mainly the build of ammonium will most certainly postpone recovery and quite possibly muscle growth. Citrulline will shift the nitrogen balance in favor of muscle growth instead of catabolism.
Citrulline stimulates the urea cycle and therefore markedly increases the body's ability to remove ammonia. Ammonia is thus converted to the harmless by-product urea, and excreted from the body.
The removal of lactate and ammonium from the blood suggests that citrulline plays an essential role in the acid-base balance. By shifting the balance in favor of the base – you increase recovery rate once again.
• shown to increase ATP production in the muscle by 34%
• stimulates the removal of ammonium in the muscles
• decreases onset muscle fatigue
• increases Nitric Oxide (NO) levels and vasodilates the muscles which in turn gives a great pump
• more NO means also more muscular growth , NO stimulates the synthesis of muscle protein
• provided in a time-released form so as to increase effectivity
Pasio Stamina has been renamed to Pasio Citrulline

Some supplements are suitable for both men and women of all ages as well as children. But other supplements are specifically targeted to the aging woman or man. Another supplement is especially suitable for athletes, regardless of gender.
Everything really started with an advertisement in an American muscle magazine with the name MM2K (Muscle Media 2000) for a product called DHEA
At the time, MM2K was a revolutionary magazine because they didn't tell you lies about doping use in sports and bodybuilding and strength sports in particular, unlike other magazines that were solely focused on inspirational stories and faking how bodyubuilding was a doping-free sports.
By contrast, MM2K wrote openly about doping, supplements, nutrition, training, and other gossip stories about health, sports and politics.
MM2K had great contributing authors, such as Bill Philips himself, Dan Duchaine who was seen as the 'mad scientist' and Charles Poliquin, a well-respected personal trainer. Dan Duchaine wrote extensively about diet drugs, which he wrote down in his booklet 'Dirty Dieting', which would become the starting point for more diet books written by Lyle McDonald.
Can training with just weight machines make you stronger?
Whomever has been a member of a gym in the past 15 years, will have noticed how slowly but surely, machines have taken a back seat and more and more space is given to 3-dimensional weight equipment, like suspension (TRX-)trainers, gym balls, kettle bells and even fun stuff that was formerly unheard of like pole dances and climbing walls.
A very popular trend is the development of Cross-Fit in which both strength and endurance is equally valued and in which Olympic weightlifting exercises are also incorporated.
As someone who has dabbled both in Olympic and power lifting as well as endurance cycling, I've been very happy about this development even though I keep using machines myself too. Recently, Christian Finn, a coach who specialized in rehab training, pointed out how machines have a more important role than most of us realize. It's well worth sharing it in our blog, too.
How to make a habit out of good intentions
Sometimes you stumble on articles, that are too good to pass up on. For those who have started the year with good intentions, we are sharing an article on how to make a habit out of good intentions. It's written by a guy who changed his habits after he became a father and wanted to be a good parent by setting an example.
“Your net worth to the world is usually determined by what remains after your bad habits are subtracted from your good ones.”
You probably agree with that statement.
But, for you (and everyone else) the problem is that good habits are hard to form and bad habits are easy to keep.
It is certainly true for me. Like most of us, I meant to start exercising for about six years after I started my career.
But it never happened. I’d do it for two or three weeks here and there, but nothing that ever stuck.
Then, all of a sudden, it did.
And it did because something changed for me. I had a son that was old enough to mimic me and that I wanted to be able to keep up with for the next twenty years. That scared me straight essentially.
In a number of areas in my life, including fitness, I realized he was going to base a significant portion of his view of how to live life and what habits were important off of what he watched me do.
So I stopped acting like I was going start exercising and I actually did it.
To create my new habit, I used a combination of the techniques below. You can use them to firm up your new habit and get your good habit quotient up.
Keto diets for endurance athletesMany of us will have heard of the advantages of very low carb diets for obese patients and more specifically for diabetics. Going very low carb results in not having as much hunger and much healthier blood glucose levels. Another group that often goes on a keto diet are those who want to prevent tumour growth.
Don't sabotage your virility!
Plasticizers are additives of which phtalates are the most abundant ones (and bisphenol-A or BPA the best known) that are used to increase the flexibility or plasticity of the material to which they are added, normally rigid plastic and as additives in paint and adhesives.
Phtalates are not just found in obvious plastic packaging, building materials and toys, but also in fragrances, cosmetics, shampoo, shaving cream, and other cleaning detergents.
Blood flow and vasodilationVasodilation is the process by which the blood vessels in the body relax and widen, allowing for greater blood flow. One of the main triggers of vasodilation is nitric oxide (NO).
Therefore, anything that increases nitric oxide production in the body will also increase vasodilation.
Wat is citrulline?Citrulline dat verkwikkend werkt op de spieren, lichamelijk welbevinden en dus op het prestatievermogen. Citrulline is zowel een precursor voor de essentiële aminozuren arginine en ornithine en daardoor een precursor voor stikstof (NO), wat inwerkt op zowel de geslachtsorganen als op die spieren, waar het helpt bij de afvoer van melkzuur en de spieren gevoeliger maakt voor het spieropbouwende / spierherstellende hormoon testosteron.
