Studying human performance
Kassi Micak participates in the citrulline malate study conducted by Air Force Research Laboratory officials Aug. 19 at Brooks City-Base, Texas. Citrulline malate has shown to increase lactate threshold and VO2 Max in healthy humans and is being investigated, along with other nutritional supplements and training aids, by AFRL officials to improve cognitive and physical performance of battlefield Airmen. Ms. Micak, a competitive cyclist based in San Antonio, volunteered for the study. (U.S. Air Force photo/Steve Thurow)
