- Full Description
CITRULLINE MALATE is a non-essential amino acid found in watermelons that may help boost your the bodies stores of Arginine.
Citrulline Malate is 2 parts Citrulline and 1 part Malic Acid. This is the form commonly used by athletes as both parts have physiological benefits.
Citrulline is commonly used for its vasodilating benefits by boosting Arginine which increases NO2 (nitric oxide).
Citrulline also helps support the urea cycle (ammonia excretion), may boost exercise performance, and help promote muscle growth.
Malic Acid or L-Malate is known to reduce fatigue and boost stamina by supporting the Kreb cycle.
In one study of 41 individuals, participants that supplemented with Citrulline Malate were able to perform 53% more repetitions. Even more impressive the supplement group who did 53% more reps had 40% less muscle soreness.
CITRULLINE MALATE MAY HELP WITH...
- ENHANCING VASODILATION
- SUPPORTING MUSCLE RECOVERY
- REDUCING AMMONIA IN MUSCLES
- IMPROVING ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE
Consume 3-8g of CITRULLINE MALATE before exercise to help boost workout performance, pumps and reduce muscle soreness.

I HEARD CITRULLINE MALATE WAS BETTER THAN ARGININE FOR NITRIC OXIDE PRODUCTION. IS THAT CORRECT?
Citrulline is a non-essential amino acid that converts into arginine and then boosts nitric oxide (NO2). Given this pathway researchers thought arginine would be better at boosting NO2. However, humans posses an enzyme called arginase that breaks arginine down and citrulline escapes this process. This means Citrulline at the same dose as Arginine increases Arginine concentrations 35% better than Arginine alone.
HOW IS CITRULLINE MALATE DIFFERENT TO STRAIGHT L-CITRULLINE?
Citrulline Malate is the most well researched form of Citrulline and it also contains Malic Acid which may help support the kreb cycle and lower body ammonia, which may support energy and recovery.
CAN I USE ANYTHING ELSE WITH CITRULLINE MALATE FOR BETTER RESULTS?
We recommend using it with POWER SWITCH™ before exercise to boost vasodilation.
AMINO SWITCH™ stacks perfectly with Citrulline Malate to help support energy performance, maintain blood flow, reduce ammonia (by product) and enhance recovery.
Citrulline Malate can also be added to PROTEIN SWITCH™ as an easy way to get your daily dose and continue the vasodilation after training to support nutrient recovery.
