  • Premium muscle fuel to fend off fatigue

  • 100% pure malic acid

  • No added sweeteners

Fuel up your muscles to fend off fatigue with the energizing nutrition of Malic Acid. Many people aren’t familiar with malic acid, but their cells certainly are. This alpha- hydroxy acid is an essential component in the Krebs cycle, the metabolic pathway by which the body produces ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which serves as the primary energy source for every cell in the body. To put it simply, without malic acid, your cells can’t produce the energy necessary to power your body. And the more active you are, the more malic acid your cells need to meet your energy demands. And while malic acid is found in rhubarb, apples and other tart fruits, the small amounts available from dietary sources aren’t adequate to fulfill the energy requirements of athletes or others with highly active lifestyles. That’s where Swanson Premium Brand Malic Acid powder can help.

Our Malic Acid powder is an excellent way to give your daily nutritional regimen an energizing boost at a price that won’t break your budget. Great for athletes or anyone with high energy demands, it features 100% pure malic acid with no added sweeteners, flavorings or preservatives of any kind—just a potent nutritional pick-me-up to get your cellular power plants operating at peak capacity so you’re ready to take on whatever challenges you face. And it’s as convenient as it is affordable—just mix a scoopful into your favorite cold beverage and drink to your health!

Malic Acid Helps for Energy
I have chronic fatigue but it seems like malic acid helps to improve my energy levels. I often take the Swanson brand in capsules (for convenience) but this powered bulk container is more economical. Malic acid is used as a food additive to provide the tangy taste in sour candies so it does, understandably, taste sour. lol I buy empty capsules to use to take the malic acid. It is easy to put in capsules to save money. It can also help to adjust the dosage to the personal preferred dosage level. Occasionally, I will also add the malic acid to smoothies or other beverages. I do find that it is better for me to take the malic acid with food to avoid digestive upset (but my system is sensitive). The Swanson brand malic acid seems to be an excellent quality for a decent price.
