Citrulline Malate

Citrulline malate is a bonded amino acid that increases athletic performance and endurance.*

Citrulline malate is a bonded compound of amino acid citrulline and malic acid. It buffers lactic acid and reduces ammonia build-up, which increases athletic performance and endurance.*

  • Increases and fuels muscle protein synthesis and ATP production*
  • Combats muscle oxidation (burning) from intense exercise*
  • Boosts anaerobic and aerobic performance during exercise*
  • Allows the athlete to train harder and recover faster*

Citrulline Malate

Citrulline malate is a compound that consists of the amino acid citrulline and the organic salt malate. Together, they reduce lactic acid and ammonia buildup, boost nitric oxide, and increase ATP regeneration.

In performance terms, citrulline malate enhances endurance and decreases muscle soreness during and after working out. Citrulline also helps muscles recover faster.

Research from Spain shows an 8-gram dose of citrulline malate increases weight-training performance by 52% and reduces muscle soreness by 40%.

How Does Citrulline Malate Work?

Citrulline malate buffers lactate and ammonia buildup in skeletal muscle while increasing ATP production. Citrulline malate also increases the body's arginine, the primary substrate of nitric oxide synthesis. And nitrous oxide increases vasodilation (giving a better pump), improves mitochondrial respiration, and enhances glucose uptake – all things that optimize muscle function and reduce fatigue.
