Energy is the underlying factor in performance that all athletes require. Whether you are a bodybuilder, long-distance runner, swimmer or sprinter, having adequate energy is absolutely essential for maximizing physical output and reaching your peak. And while we all train a variety of our systems--such as the cardiovascular system for endurance athletes--we all know that it is all for naught if the muscles are not supplied with the fuel they need for optimal performance. And that is where Citrulline Malate comes into play.
What is Citrulline Malate?
Citrulline Malate is composed of the amino acid Citruline (which is an intermediate in the conversion of ornithine to arginine) and Malate (a tricarboxycylic acid cycle intermediate that is involved in producing aerobic energy within the mitochondria).
How does Citrulline Malate work?
Protein and energy are the two most important performance requirements for the muscular system. The protein the muscles need to build structural components and convert energy are commonly provided by the food we eat. It is adenosine triphosphate (ATP) that is the primary source of chemical energy those muscle cells (and all other in the body) need to do the work athletes require. The ATP provides the raw energy that fires the structural machinery, and when the ATP level diminish, the machine will grind to a halt (and this is precisely what occurs when we experience fatigue). So it should be obvious that the primary consideration of endurance athletes should be to renew and expand their ATP supplies.
It is Citrulline Malate that can power ATP production, as well as reduce lactic acid and ammonia build-up, thereby enabling athletes to work longer and harder without fatigue (as well as recover quicker).
Citrulline Malate Benefits
Citrulline Malate has many positive effects on aerobic performance including:
- Increased aerobic energy production
- Higher stamina
- Fatigue resistance
- Enhanced energy levels and recovery

The quality is top notch.
My doses ranges from 4-6g depending on how I feel.
Mixes easy and is tasteless.
- Best value anywhere Review by Riley
Price Value QualityThis is the best value for citrulline malate that you'll find anywhere. I mix my own pre-workouts with just a few of the important ingredients, and this is among them. I usually take about 5 gm at a time and I can definitely notice an increase in vascularity. Great product for the money.(Posted on )
