Retraction Note: Effect of L-citrulline supplementation on blood pressure: a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials

The Original Article was published on 11 September 2018

Correction to: Journal of Human Hypertension

https://doi.org/10.1038/s41371-018-0108-4

The authors have retracted this article [1] because there are fundamental errors in the data presented that undermine the conclusions drawn.

Standard error was used instead of the standard deviation from two trials included in the meta-analysis. This has seriously affected the overall effect. There have also been other inconsistencies noted in the values used in the calculations from the original studies.

All authors agree to this retraction.
