The active ingredient in the Vena-lax formulation is Citrulline which is an amino acid that is naturally produced by the body and is also found in certain foods, such as watermelon. It is often used as a dietary supplement to lower blood pressure, improve athletic performance, increase blood flow, and enhance recovery after exercise. Here are some potential benefits of citrulline, supported by scientific research:

Lower blood pressure: A 2012 study published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology found that oral citrulline supplementation reduced blood pressure in healthy adults. The study included 12 participants who were given either a placebo or 6 grams of citrulline per day for 14 days. The results showed that citrulline supplementation decreased systolic blood pressure by an average of 4.8 mmHg and diastolic blood pressure by an average of 2.7 mmHg.

A 2021 randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial published in the European Journal of Nutrition investigated the effects of citrulline supplementation on blood pressure and arterial stiffness in overweight or obese adults. The study included 48 participants who were given either a placebo or 6 grams of citrulline per day for 12 weeks. The results showed that citrulline supplementation significantly reduced systolic blood pressure and pulse pressure compared to the placebo group, but had no effect on diastolic blood pressure or arterial stiffness.

1. Improves athletic performance: Citrulline may help to improve endurance and reduce fatigue during exercise. A 2015 study published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research found that citrulline supplementation improved cycling performance and reduced muscle soreness in trained male cyclists.

2. Increases blood flow: Citrulline may help to improve blood flow by increasing the production of nitric oxide, a molecule that helps to dilate blood vessels. A 2017 study published in the Journal of Vascular Surgery found that citrulline supplementation improved blood flow and reduced oxidative stress in patients with peripheral arterial disease.

3. Enhances muscle protein synthesis: Citrulline may help to enhance muscle protein synthesis, which is the process by which the body builds muscle tissue. A 2015 study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that citrulline supplementation increased muscle protein synthesis in healthy older adults

4. Reduces muscle soreness: Citrulline may help to reduce muscle soreness and improve recovery after exercise. A 2017 study published in the European Journal of Sport Science found that citrulline supplementation reduced muscle soreness and improved recovery after a high-intensity exercise session.

5. Improves erectile dysfunction: Citrulline may help to improve erectile dysfunction by increasing blood flow to the penis. A 2011 study published in the journal Urology found that citrulline supplementation improved erectile function in men with mild to moderate erectile dysfunction.

    Nothing but good things to say about the supplement. My blood pressure has gone down already.
