Citrulline was first isolated in 1914 and experimented with ever since then. Its name is derived from citrullus, the Latin word for watermelon where it is naturally found. Unlike many other amino acids, Citrulline is found in only fruit as opposed to proteins.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE CITRULLINE MALATE 2:1 FORMULA?
In the Emrald Labs L-Citrulline Malate formula, Citrulline is combined with Malate, a compound that is important for energy production. A 2:1 ratio has been proven to have more benefits than just Citrulline on its own.
HOW DOES L-CITRULLINE MALATE WORK?
In order to fully understand how L-Citrulline Malate works, we need to break it down into the two components of the formula.
Citrulline is absorbed by the kidneys and converted into arginine (amino acid) and via arginine, Citrulline raises levels in ornithine (amino acid). These three amino acids work together to form the urea cycle. The purpose of the urea cycle is to eliminate toxic ammonia from the body to converts it into urea in the mitochondria of liver cells. Conversion of toxic ammonia helps to support sports performance and cardiovascular health.
Citrulline also helps your body metabolise protein and nitrogen which assists blood vessel dilation and promotes circulation, resulting in an increase in Nitric Oxide production. An increase in Nitric Oxide production reduces fatigue and preserves strength and power output during exercise.
Mallate is often bound to a variety of supplements in order to give them stability. Malate also has its own range of benefits. It supports your body's own ability to recycle exercise-generated lactic acid and use it for energy.

There have been studies done to prove that Citrulline Malate improves power output, oxygen consumption and exercise performance.
In 2010, 41 men participated in an experiment to test Citrulline Malate. Each man took 1 dose of Citrulline Malate and performed sets of bench presses. Through the study, it was found that there was an increase of 55.92% in the number of reps and a 40% decrease in muscle soreness after the activity.
There have been many more studies done using Citrulline Malate and a lot of them point to the same evidence that it reduces muscle fatigue, enhances endurance and in turn increases overall strength and muscle growth.
