L-Citrulline (2-Amino-5-(carbamoylamino)pentanoic acid) is an alpha amino acid first extracted from watermelons. It is used in the urea cycle and is taken to boost L-arginine levels and, thus, nitric oxide levels. DL-Malate (malic acid) is a key compound for the synthesis of ATP. L-Citrulline DL-Malate 2:1 is composed of 2 L-Citrulline molecules bound to a single Malic Acid molecule.


L-Citrulline DL-Malate 2:1 Benefits and Uses

L-Citrulline DL-Malate 2:1 is a salt made up of two L-Citrulline molecules bound to one Malic acid molecule. L-Citrulline is a naturally occurring α-amino acid which is a key intermediate in mammalian biochemical and metabolic processes, including the urea cycle. Its nomenclature derives from the Latin name of the watermelon fruit (Citrullus vulgaris), in which its concentration exceeds 2mg per gram of fresh watermelon.

L-Citrulline DL-Malate has been found to increase cellular energy production in a synergistic manner. The ratio of two to one is generally preferred by athletes because it optimizes the mass of L-Citrulline delivered per serving.

L-Citrulline supplements are also known by a few different names, including:

  • 2-Amino-5-(carbamoylamino)pentanoic acid
  • Citrulline
  • Watermelon extract
  • L-Citrulina
  • AKG
  • L-Citrulline Malate
  • Citrulline Malate
  • 2:1 Citrulline Malate salt
  • l-critrulline-dl-malate

Scientific Consensus

Supplementing with L-Citrulline DL-Malate 2:1 is likely safe for adults when taken at the recommended serving size. L-Citrulline is a naturally-occurring amino acid, and as such, side effects are rare and uncommon.

Special Warnings

It is very important to talk to your doctor before using this supplement if you are taking any prescription medication. There is not enough research to support the safety of L-Citrulline supplements for pregnant or breastfeeding women. As such, it is recommended to be avoided.

L-Citrulline is often considered a kind of camouflaged, enhanced efficacy Arginine supplement, due to its rapid conversion into Arginine by the kidneys after consumption. Unlike most known forms of Arginine, its absorption is not restricted by the Arginine transporter in the intestinal tract, and thus L-Citrulline has significantly reduced (if any) gastrointestinal side effects in comparison to Arginine, even when consumed at large servings. Arginine, and by extension L-Citrulline, are often supplemented to increase bloodflow through their enhancement of nitric oxide (NO), (which is a small cell signalling molecule that promotes vasodilation and can thus benefit a wide range of human activity). Through this pathway, research indicates that L-Arginine and L-Citrulline may help boost aerobic and anaerobic exercise performance, erection quality, and even healthy growth hormone release. - Increased NO2 Production - Boosts Physical Energy - Improves Exercise Performance



Malic acid, a dicarboxylic acid found in all living organisms, is a key factor in the biosynthesis of ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate, the universal cellular energy carrier molecule), through its role in the citric acid cycle. The combination salt, L-Citrulline DL-Malate, is the most common and bioavailable form of orally available Malic acid. - Improves Energy Levels - Enhances L-Citrulline Absorption - Precursor to ATP
