Carl Wilhelm Scheele, a Swedish pharmacist, originally discovered this acid in apples in 1785. The name malic actually comes from the Latin name of apple, which is malum.
Apples are the No. 1 natural source. In fact, of an apple’s total acid content, over 90 percent is malic acid. The human body also creates this acid.
Malic acid plays an important role in the Krebs cycle, which is an energy-producing sequence of reactions key to life. It is often used for fibromyalgia, fatigue, and skin conditions. Research tells us that this acid can improve symptoms of dry mouth by stimulating saliva production. Normal amounts of saliva production limit oral bacteria in the mouth.
