My Supps L-Citrulline Powder is a combi product consisting of the amino acid L-Citrulline and the substance Malate, which is extracted from fruit.
My Supps 100% L-Citrulline Malate is suitable for athletes placing a strain on their energy and protein metabolism due to high levels of physical exertion. This is due to the fact that in periods of exertion such as sport, ammoniac forms as a result of the break-up of muscle protein, hence leading to premature fatigue. Additionally, My Supps 100% L-Citrulline Malate is suitable for persons consuming low levels of energy while exposing their bodies to significant exertion.
Worth knowing: What is Citrulline?
The name Citrulline comes from Citrullus vulgaris = the watermelon, as high concentrations of this amino acid are found in the rind of this fruit. Citrulline is responsible for important bodily functions. For instance, it is a player in the urea cycle, which takes place mostly in the liver and kidneys. The urea cycle is an important element of the protein metabolism, as build-up and break-down processes take place there. This is where useless proteins are broken down, hence producing acidic metabolites such as ammoniac. The body must dispose of this ammoniac to ensure smooth functions of the energy and protein metabolism. After all, the enzymes asked to build up proteins and energy-rich substances such as creatine phosphate and adenosine triphosphate in the body respond very sensitively to acids.
Worth knowing: What is Malate?
Which products can be sensibly combined with My Supps 100% L-Citrulline Malate?
Malate is an organic fruit acid, also known as ´salt of malic acid´, and is found in unripe fruit and in wine. The body also produces the organic compound in the so-called tribcarboxylic acid cycle, in which all important biochemical reactions take place and also all endogenous substances can be replenished. in this, Malate is an intermediate product and is used as a carrier substance for the processes of building up and breaking down as they progress. Seeing as the body is familiar with this substance, it can be drawn easily into its own metabolism.
It is frequently said that organic compounds can be absorbed more easily by the body than anorganic compounds that the body is unable to produce itself. In My Supps 100% L-Citrulline Malate, the Citrulline molecules are bonded with the organic compound Malate to enable the body to absorb the Citrulline more readily.
