L-Citrulline Malate Powder
L-Citrulline is a compound consisting of Citrulline, a nonessential amino acid that is primarily found in watermelon, and Malate, an apple derivative.
Research has shown that supplementation of Citrulline raises Arginine levels more effectively than taking the same dose of straight Arginine.
Citrulline Malate's NO enhancing properties are just one of the unique benefits this nutrient offers to athletes. And if the enhanced pumps and improved nutrient delivery properties are the reason you are using Arginine based NO products, you need to pay attention to Citrulline Malate.
The difference between L-Citrulline and L-Citrulline Malate is the addition of malic acid. Malate serves as an important component in the tricarboxylic (or TCA) cycle, which is one way your body produces energy. When you increase malate levels, you increase energy production. Therefore, citrulline malate provides the one-two punch of bringing additional blood—and subsequently, oxygen and nutrients—to exercising muscles, as well as providing increased energy to boost performance levels.
Studies show subjects using Citrulline Malate have an increase in the rate of muscle ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate, the major energy source within the cell) production during exercise and greater phosphocreatine recovery after exercise.
