MC3 - Why Citrulline Malate?

Discover the exceptional benefits of Citrulline Malate to optimize your sports performance

Introduction: Welcome to Stimium Laboratories, where our passion for citrulline, and more specifically citrulline malate, has led to a revolutionary advancement in the field of sports performance. In a world where each supplier touts the superiority of its ingredients, and where scientific studies abound, our experience in the pharmaceutical industry allows us to take a critical and transparent look at innovations. We are proud to present Stimium MC3, a product which, since its launch on the market in 2016, has proven its effectiveness, generating constant demand, both from occasional athletes and high-level athletes.

Why choose Stimium MC3:

Our flagship product, Stimium MC3 Powder, is a perfect fusion of L-citrulline, an essential amino acid, and malic acid, a key component of the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle. This unique combination, the proportions of which remain confidential, offers exceptional benefits for sports performance.

Mechanism of action and advantages of Stimium MC3:

Citrulline Malate works in tandem with L-citrulline to deliver significant results. Malic acid, present in Stimium MC3, plays a crucial role in energy production, while L-citrulline helps eliminate ammonia, reducing muscle fatigue. Extensive studies reveal a notable reduction in the feeling of fatigue, a significant increase in ATP production during exercise, and faster phosphocreatine recovery after exercise.

The benefits of citrulline for sports performance:

Citrulline, an amino acid that our body can synthesize, is the key component of Stimium MC3. Its role goes beyond the elimination of ammonia, because it boosts the production of nitric oxide, improving vasodilation and cellular oxygenation. In addition, it promotes protein synthesis, strengthening muscles and improving resistance to exercise.

Recommended dosage and various uses:

Studies agree on a dosage of 2 to 5 grams per day, varying depending on the objectives. Whether you are a fan of bodybuilding, running, cycling, CrossFit, or other sports, Stimium MC3 offers significant benefits. Its use in preparation (Pre) or recovery (Post) adapts to different sports, from pure endurance to disciplines combining strength and endurance.

Conclusion :

Citrulline Malate proves to be much more than just a recovery supplement. Its usefulness extends to various sporting disciplines, from athletics to functional sports, including bodybuilding and combat sports. Stimium MC3, with its exclusive formula, stands out as an essential partner for maximizing your sporting performance, by increasing your endurance, promoting muscle development, and reducing recovery times. Choose real efficiency with Stimium MC3 and give your best in every training session.

In your Nike, Adidas, Salomon or Hoka shoes, for a marathon, a simple run, a trail, a bike ride, Stimium supports you, in training, in preparation, as in competition, as the number 1 laboratory on recovery. With our range of food supplements, and in particular our MC3 product, based on citrulline malate, a very specific amino acid, and magnesium in a sugar-free gel stick, to better oxygenate the muscles and avoid cramps. To be able to choose your dose, MC3 also exists in powder , to be mixed with water in a bottle, for even easier taking, but always with this beneficial effect for the body and for health. If among our recovery products, the Stimium range also includes exercise drinks, isotonic drinks , or recovery powders mixing protein isolate, glucose and fructose , the number 1 nutrition product remains MC3, due to its proven effectiveness, for athletes and non-athletes alike (the drug Stimol is intended more for the elderly).

This review of the bibliography reinforces our idea that our citrulline malate is unique. However, if MC3 is today in France the number 1 product in the recovery segment, we at Stimium will try to broaden its scope of use, and will also ask the Stimium community to participate actively involved in these new products, which we are already working on.
