Citric Acid (Anhydrous) Benefits and Uses

 

Citric acid is commercially produced through mycological fermentation from a bacteria called Aspergillus niger. This weak acid is commonly used as a stabilizer and a preservative in packaged foods and pharmaceuticals.

 

Citrate – related to Citric acid – plays an essential role in the “citric acid cycle” or TCA/Krebs cycle, a metabolic pathway involved in the production of cellular energy. It consists of a series of chemical reactions which transform stored energy into useable energy (ATP) through the oxidation of nutrients.

 

Anecdotal evidence suggests that supplementing with Citric acid may enhance absorption of nutrients and minerals (e.g. Magnesium and Calcium) and increase energy levels.
