At its core, Malate - is nothing but as malic acid, which the body by means of its processing are used to increase energy.
Citrulline malate transformed to nitric oxide, which enables muscles to consume more glucose and inhibit the accumulation of fatigue. The cell mitochondria, are responsible for energy production, increase in its amount with the increase of nitric oxide. As a result, the muscles begin to contract better, get more blood, which is engaged in the transportation of necessary substances and disposal of waste products.
The most important purpose substances is the ability to increase the production of arginine, which stimulates the growth of nitric oxide. Hence, the focus in the use of the drug for the prevention and removal of excessive fatigue syndrome.

- arginine stimulates the muscles vessels;
- creatine increases muscle mass;
- carnosine, which eliminates the effect on muscle oxidative processes;
- karnetinom, improve heart function;
- vitamin B group and zinc, is the link of all metabolic processes.
The main properties of the substance are:
- to synthesize arginine in the body;
- increase in muscle mass and increased its power;

Experts advise to use the drug with a very intensive training and high load. To work with one group of muscles of the effect will be negligible.
