Description

Citrulline Malate Powder

Citrulline Malate is a combination of the amino acid Citrulline, which is involved in the urea cycle and Malate, a Krebs (also known as also known as the tricarboxylic acid cycle or citric acid cycle) cycle intermediate which is a major producer of aerobic energy within the mitochondria. Citrulline is found naturally primarily in Melons, and Malate can be found naturally in Apples. Citrulline Malate (CM) is a versatile compound that can enhance performance through a variety of biological mechanisms. CM increases levels of arginine and ornithine which are both important amino acids for muscle growth and have been shown to influence growth hormone levels.

By virtue of this increase in argninine levels CM elicits similar benefits to arginine based supplements (see AAKG for details). CM reduces fatigue through a number of ways. It protects against increased blood acidity by increasing the levels of bicarbonate in the blood. It dramatically speeds up the rate at which the metabolic by-products of exercise (such as lactic, ammonia and endotoxins) are removed from working muscles, and it increases the rate (by up to 34%) of oxidative (aerobic) ATP production during exercise.

Its ability to remove ammonia is particularly important as high levels inhibit glycogen formation, disrupting the energy cycle. Moreover CM also improves recovery by dramatically increasing the rate of phosphocreatine (see creatine) replenishment after exercise ( 20% increase). Citrulline Malate is a very useful supplement for anyone participating in high-intensity exercise, including strength athletes, bodybuilders, cyclists and some runners (e.g middle-distance runners). It's particularly effective when training enters a hypoxic state, such as in the later stages of endurance type events/sports (and when bodybuilding using constant-tension techniques).

In a clinical setting CM has been shown to improve recovery from physical activity in patients with acute diseases as well as increasing feelings of well being and combating asthenia often associated with chronic wasting conditions.

Benefits

Supplementing with Citrulline Malate provides the following:

  • Increases both aerobic and anaerobic thresholds, delaying fatigue
  • Increases work capacity
