What is Citrulline Malate?

Citrulline Malate, or L-Citrulline Malate, is a non-essential amino acid that the body can naturally synthesize. Despite the fact that it can be produced naturally by the body, studies have found that increasing your citrulline malate consumption on a regular basis, can provide a number of benefits for the human body, which we’ll be covering shortly. Believe it or not, but Citrulline malate is actually primarily found in melons and apples, as well as various other foods. In melons for example, citrulline is present, whereas the malate is a natural derivative of apples. If you’re wondering if it would be cheaper to just buy a whole mass of apples and melons instead, the answer is no because to get sufficient enough quantities in order to boost athletic performance and fitness, you simply would not be able to eat enough fruit in one sitting, which is why the supplements are so important.

How does it work?

Basically, cirtulline can be naturally obtained via food, or, the human body can actually produce it via ornithine, which is another amino acid that is obtained via dietary sources. The citrulline is created via the urea cycle, which is a natural process that rids the body of ammonia, lactic acid, and other harmful compounds. Citrulline malate has also been found to naturally increase arginine levels, which in turn helps to create more Nitric Oxide. NO, works to help increase circulation and blood flow, which is one of the main reasons why citrulline malate is considered so beneficial for people looking to increase and improve their athletic performances. The reduction in ammonia and lactic acid, which can cause muscle fatigue and muscle cramps, is also very beneficial, as that can help the muscles work harder and for longer, before they fatigue. It has even been found to help increase ATP, or Adenosine Tri-Phosphate, which is a primary energy source used by the muscles.

What are the benefits of taking Citrulline Malate supplements?

In terms of athletic performance, there are a number of benefits associated with citrulline malate, so let’s take a look at some of the more prominent examples, shall we?

Improved athletic performance

First and foremost, one of the biggest benefits associated with this supplement is the fact that it increases athletic performance by such a great deal. To begin with, it helps increase NO levels, which in turn help to increase circulation, allowing oxygen and energy-rich blood to be carried around the body in larger quantities. It also increases ATP as it functions as an intermediate in the krebs cycle, making it a fantastic supplement in terms of athletic performance.

Reduced muscle cramps and fatigue

You could argue that this could be associated with being able to increase athletic performance, and whilst that is true, it still deserves its own little sub-section for different reasons. As it helps to reduce ammonia and lactic acid production, the muscles can work harder and faster, and for longer, before they fatigue. Muscle cramps and fatigue can lead to reduced athletic performance and can increase your chance of injury, which is why citrulline malate is considered so beneficial for anybody looking to avoid injury.

More vascularity

For bodybuilders and people generally looking to get in shape, citrulline malate is ideal as the Nitric Oxide works as a vasodilator, dilating the blood vessels and allowing more blood to flow through them. The more blood that flows through them, the more vascular and pumped you will look, which will help give you a mental boost.

Other benefits include:

  • Increased athletic performance
  • Reduced chance of injury
  • Increased blood flow and oxygen transportation
  • Reduced lactic acid build ups
  • More energy
  • Increased ATP production
  • Increased vascularity and muscle pumps
  • And more...

How and when should it be consumed?

For optimal results, experts recommend consuming two 2g servings per day, so 4g per day in total. Simply add 2g to water or juice, shake, and consume. For optimal results, consume before and after training.

Health Canada Recommended Dose (powder): Adults: 1 Scoop(s) 1 time(s) per day. Mix product well in 1-2 cups of liquid (water, juice, etc.) immediately before consumption.

What can it be stacked with?

Citrulline malate is a potent performance enhancing supplement that can be stacked with a whole host of similar supplements. Many people will stack it with a NO booster, BCAAs, whey protein, and dextrose for a post-workout shake like no other.

Good products. If you guys never tried citrulline malate pure or in a preworkout, you don't know what a good pump is. I'll give a 5/5 but this stuff should be more cheap.

First off, super fast shipping!

Great comm's from the staff at CP!

I am giving citrulline Malate a try for the first time. It's a little tart, but mix it up well and add some extras and it's fine. It's only been a couple days so no feedback yet on workout improvement.

Will buy here again.

Great product

Price and quality are unbeatable. Be advised, it is really sour. Only complaint would be the bag, some powder get stuck in the zip top and makes it unable to be completely sealed. Otherwise everything's perfect.

Cut the sour with Baking Soda

Love the Citrulline Malate. Most inexpensive also. If you find it sour, that's the Vitamin C that is added for better bioavailability. Add a tiny bit of Baking Soda when mixing and the sour will disappear and make it better/easier to drink.

Great quality, and great group of people to do business with. I've done my homework in regards of pricing & quality matching, and this is what I found :). It was nice doing business with those in 'Canadian Protein' and they stand by there name of quality products.

Ever since I have started adding Citrulline to my pwo I have been recovering better. I have been having bigger pumps. I might not take Citrulline every day, but it is a must have for whenever you try a new programme or what to break your 1RM.

Product is decent, if I had to choose between beta alanine and Citrulline for my pre/intra drink I would say the beta alanine is way more beneficial...and cheaper.

Verified Buyer

Jason on 10/09/2014
While I don't think it is the best part of my pre or post workout shake(Weirdly sour), I can say that it has improved my recovery rates, which has lead to more gym time/more gains. However, the average rating is for what I believe is a non essential product if it doesn't fit your budget, and not tasting so great. Definitely buying again though, personally, as my results with the product have been good.

Better Than Expected
Marco on 25/01/2014
I had been searching for a Canadian supplier of Citrulline Malate powder for a few months when I came across canadianprotein. At first I hesitated to order because the products weren't name brands. In the end I gave in and ordered. I was not disappointed. Price was great and shipping was quicker than expected. I had absolutely no issues with my order and would order again.

Good Price, Good Results, Awesome Product
Rob on 26/06/2013
Great price for the amount of Citrulline Malate you get. It's hard to find in supplement shops and is often highly priced. Product shipped out fast, got to me in under a week. I'm currently taking this product in conjunction with Creatine and Beta-Alanine. I have definitely noticed a difference in my muscular endurance since adding Citruline Malate to my pre-workout combo. I find I am able to add dropsets or a 4th set on most of my exercises without affecting the weight of exercises I do afterword. I definitely recommend this product as part of a Creatine-Beta Alanine-Citruline combo.
