What is Citrulline Malate?

Citrulline (CM) is an amino acid compound and citrulline malate has the ability to delay the feeling of fatigue during strenuous exercise. Therefore, CM is commonly found in pre-workout dietary supplements.

Let's take a closer look at its ingredients.


Citrulline is a non-essential amino acid, meaning it can be synthesized (produced) in the body. The synthesis of citrulline occurs mainly in the intestinal epithelial cells of the small intestine through the enzymatic reaction of two other amino acids, glutamine and proline.

Once formed, citrulline is involved in various metabolic pathways (most notably the urea cycle) and is a precursor to another amino acid, arginine.

One of the main advantages of arginine is its role in nitric oxide (NO) production. NO is primarily an important signaling molecule with a primary function as a potent vasodilator that regulates blood flow and oxygen delivery throughout the body.

Citrulline helps reduce the accumulation of ammonia in skeletal muscle, which reduces muscle fatigue and prolongs exercise time.

Simply put, citrulline is a non-essential amino acid involved in the urea cycle and in the production of nitric oxide, which acts as a vasodilator and improves blood, oxygen delivery in the body.

Malic acid

Malic acid is an important intermediate in the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle, which produces two-thirds of the body's energy by utilizing fat and carbohydrates consumed in the diet. In the TCA cycle, malic acid is dehydrogenated (removal of hydrogen atoms), generating NADH2 in the process. This coenzyme can then go on to produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is the energy needed for muscle contraction.

Fundamentally, ensuring that our bodies are getting enough malic acid keeps the TCA cycle running smoothly and ensures that the muscles have enough energy available for exercise.

The combination of citrulline and malic acid brings about muscle function enhancement benefits, so CM is widely used as a supplement to enhance athletic performance.
