Citrulline DL Malate 2:1

Citrulline is an amino acid in the urea cycle that occurs in the liver.(59) The urea cycle turns a toxic ammonia in a less toxic substance such as urea.(60) Ammonia is produced at a high rate when exercising and when the body is breaking down protein.(63)(64) Ammonia can lead to high levels of fatigue.(65)

L-citrulline raises arginine plasma levels in the body. The effects of raising arginine plasma levels in the body are greater with L-citrulline than arginine itself.(59) Arginine helps with the production of nitric oxide(NO)(61) which helps with blood flow, delivery of oxygen and muscle growth.(62)

Citrulline Malate can enhance the rate of muscle ATP production while exercising.(66) (Your body uses energy in the form of ATP (Adenosine Tri Phosphate)(3) It also has shown an increase in phosphocreatine recovery after exercise.(66)

A malate being being bonded to Citrulline has proven to be more effective than L-citrulline alone. Malate seems to help with the Krebs cycle (turns sugars and fats into ATP in the mitochondria of the cell). With the help of malate in the krebs cycle, it can help provide a quicker and longer burst of energy.(66)
