What is Malic Acid?
Malic Acid is a type of Alpha-Hydroxy Acid. It contributes to the sourness of green apples and is present in other fruits such as grapes and rhubarb.
The name acide malique which is derived from the Latin word for apple, mālum was first suggested in 1787. In German it is named Äpfelsäure (or Apfelsäure) after the plural or singular of the fruit apple.

When combined with Magnesium, Malic Acid may cause significant improvement in the number of tender points in Fibromyalgia patients.
Malic Acid may facilitate the excretion (chelation) of Aluminium and Iron from the body.
