Often better known for its sharp, tangy role in flavour making than it is for its health benefits, Malic acid is a great source of energy. By boosting ATP supplies it can energise the body at a cellular level, meaning that your exercise session can keep going for longer and harder than ever before.
Although you may not yet realise it, you probably already know the flavour of Malic Acid quite well. In its most simple, familiar form, you'll recognise it from the sourness present in the flavour of green apples. In German it is actually known as Apfelsaure which doesn't take a whole lot of working out when it comes to translation.
Although, even our name for it isn't all that coded when you learn that Malic acid is actually derived from the Latin for apple - Malum. Beyond the common apple, it has long been used in heavier concentration to create intensely sour artificial flavours. Salt and vinegar crisps and more ‘extreme' sour flavoured sweets are formed using a complex of Malic and Citric Acid.
Like everything in life though, Malic Acid is best prescribed in measured doses, not as a means to stripping the enamel off our teeth.
First isolated from apple juice by Carl Wilhelm Scheele in 1785, it transpires that Malic Acid has a greater use than just flavouring - its ability to generate and fuel our body's ATP supplies. ATP or Adenosine triphosphate is the ‘molecular currency of energy'. In other words, it is the metabolised form of our food - it's what drives our cells to work, and as a result, it is literally our body's fuel cells.
Swanson Malic Acid is a formulated, concentrated solution that can offer higher levels of energy, not just for exercise but in your day-to-day too.
Found in foods such as apples, mangoes, bananas, cherries, lychees, peaches, cherries and strawberries - it's not hard to determine which food group you should be eating to keep your supplies up. However the high sugar content of those fruits can present a problem in their own rights.
Swanson Malic acid offers a healthier way to boost your body's supply. But what are the benefits of boosting that supply?
Pain Reduction :For anyone who suffers from Fibromyalgia (unexplained pain) or CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome), the effects can be quite devastating. The search for a solution to the inexplicable and often incapacitating muscle and joint pain can be as exhausting as the syndromes themselves.
Studies have shown though that Swanson Malic acid could hold the key. One of its most commonly touted benefits is its ability to help reduce pain. Although it may take a couple of days before the effects are fully felt, most experience some kind of pain relief within 48 hours.
Energy Boost :By helping to boost our ATP supply and augmenting the metabolic process as a whole, Swanson Malic acid has been commonly used as a means to reinvigorating those suffering from fatigue and supplementing those who enjoy a more fearsome exercise regimen.
