15-May-2017 | Zion Market Research

Malic acid is a constituent of several foods that are eaten by us daily. Even though it is a naturally occurring organic compound in several fruits, it is also taken as a supplement by many to promote their overall health and to treat several ills. Nowadays, it is mostly used as a food preservative and additive. It was first isolated by Carl Wilhelm Scheele, a Swedish chemist, in 1785 from apple juice. Apple is well-known for its high malic acid content. The other fruits with its high content include cherries, lychees, bananas, nectarines, mangoes, tomatoes, peaches, and strawberries. Let’s have a glimpse at the health benefits as well as side effects of the acid.


Pain Decline

One of the well-known advantages of the acid is its potential to aid in reducing pain. Because of this, it is often used by the individuals who suffer from chronic fatigue system and fibromyalgia. The individuals who consumed it have reported decreased muscle pain and soreness. Even though it can need many days of constant intake of the supplement to show its complete impact, it can start to decrease pain as fast as 48 hours after consuming the first supplement.

Energy Boost

It also found to be useful in boosting the levels of energy. It is a vital element in the Krebs cycle, a process that converts proteins, fats, and carbohydrates into water and energy in the body. An inadequate supply of it in the body can result in dysfunction of the Krebs cycle, which in turn, can cause fatigue.

Considering the benefits and the rising health awareness among the population globally is expected to fuel the growth of the malic acid market.
