Citrulline Malate Promotes Aerobic Energy Production
D Bendahan et al. (2002) Br J Sports Med. 36:282-9.
Study: Investigated the effects of citrulline malate supplementation on muscle energetics.
Results: Citrulline Malate ingestion resulted in a significant reduction in the sensation of fatigue, a 34% increase in the rate of oxidative ATP production during exercise, and a 20% increase in the rate of phosphocreatine recovery after exercise.
Conclusion: The changes in muscle metabolism produced by citrulline malate treatment indicate that citrulline malate may promote aerobic energy production.
