Citrulline Malate overview
Citrulline Malate, also known as L-Citrulline DL Malate, is a popular supplement taken in powdered form to increase training endurance, detoxify the body and develop aesthetics. Citrulline Malate is a combination of the amino acid L-Citrulline and Salt Malate.
L-Citrulline is a non-protein amino acid compound and is not considered to be one of the essential amino acids commonly obtained through diet. L-Citrulline is found naturally in foods such as watermelon, cucumber and pumpkin. However as the body produces its own L-Citrulline, it falls in the non-essential amino acid groups.
L-Citrulline is produced by the body in 2 ways, either from nitric oxide a by-product of Arginine or from nitrogen found in L-Glutamine, both Arginine and L-Glutamine are considered semi or conditionally essential amino acid.
L-Citrulline is a very effective precursor for Arginine. L-Arginine is best known as a nitric oxide (NOX) stimulator and vasodilator, relaxing and dilating the blood vessels to help the body shuttle oxygen and nutrients around the bloodstream. This makes L-Arginine a useful bodybuilding supplement; users also report and love the pump effects L-Arginine offers.
It’s the interaction L-Citrulline and Arginine produce within the body that make Citrulline Malate a very popular bodybuilding supplement. Citrulline Malate supplements offer the benefits of Arginine and in addition buffer lactic acid and reducing muscular fatigue helping you train harder and for longer. Citrulline Malate also helps detoxify the build-up of ammonia created during intense exercise, facilitating ATP output and advance recovery.
Plenty of studies have been performed around the benefits of supplementing with Citrulline Malate for exercise performance and muscle gain. Just 6g each day for 15 days has been shown to increase oxidative ATP production by more than 30% and significantly reduce perceived fatigue during exercise. Studies have also shown it to increase physical recovery after training by up to 20%.
Citrulline Malate is a common and effective ingredient found in many pre-workout and intra-workout supplement formulas. Experienced bodybuilders and gym goers like to purchase it in this raw form as a separate ingredient, in order to create their own bespoke nutrition supplements which exactly fit the needs of their training, competing and current lean mass.
