whats the deal with this stuff? how does it work? whats it do? if you've taken it, do you like it? what flavor is best? how soon before your workout do you take it? i've been thinking about adding it to my supplements (multi-vita, liquid EFA, weight gainer right after my workout)

I don't know about that supp, but I prefer GNC's Nitro Explosion. I'll tell you a little about nitric oxide supps. I have done research about this, and I currently take them. However, I do not take the supps for what manufacturers tell you the supp is for. Companies claim that it is all about the pump. That is marketing. It all starts from l-arginine. L-arginine is converted into nitric oxide. L-arginine is used for tissue repair. Examples are healing wounds, immune function, cell division, hormonal secretion, etc. L-arginine also helps with creatine synthesis. Onto nitric oxide...this really is for vaso-dilation. In other words, it widens the blood vessals. This is how marketers get "the pump" for selling their product. Make sure that the supp you choose does not have stimulants in it. If is does, it should have a very small amount. Stimulants are a vaso-constrictor. This will defeat the purpose for nitric oxide. Back to nitric oxide, it also helps with hair growth and neurotransmitters function.

I personally take two grams of l-arginine with my serving of GNC Nitro Explosion 25 minutes before my workout. I also take another serving Nitro Explosion at my midpoint of the workout. Then I take 1 more gram of l-arginine at the end of my workout. Keep in mind that I take other supps during and after my workout. I like the products for tissue repair, not for the pump.

I work with a younger guy (18) who's gotten into working out over the past month or so and he use's the no-xplode, says it's great he raves about the energy it gives him and the better pumps he feels oppose to day's he doesn't take it. I believe he takes it before his workouts.

Wow Bio. You seem to have changed your stance on this stuff. I thought you weren't a fan of it.

I did somewhat change my stance about it. Marketers really push the "pump" from the product. I think that it is bullshit marketing hype. This is where I disagree with the product. I feel that paying an arm and a leg for something so simple is bullshit. There are other uses from the l-arginine and nitric oxide, which would mainly be tissue repair. This is why I take it. People may feel like they have better blood flow, and that is because nitric oxide is a vaso-dilator. Keep in mind that when people say that they are getting the best workouts ever, it is most likely other variables or psychological effects. I think people really need to understand why they are taking nitric oxide supps, and it should not be for the "pump" from marketers.

I have been taking the GNC's Nitro Explosion along with glutamine and L-arginine like Bio explains. I haven't noticed a better pump and if I did we all know the pump means nothing. However I do believe that I am recovering sooner than I was when I was not taking the Nitro Explosion and L arginine.

i used to take the noxplode and i highly recommend it if your looking for an extra pump its great... bio pretty much nailed it with the NO vasodilation. the reason i stopped taking it is because if you read the label there is also a minute dose of caffeine, a vasoconstrictor... so i went and bought myself some l-arginine pills, take my own creatine, and i think i get an even better pump at half the price .. however i did like noxplode ... i tried all flavors and liked all flavors...and id say mix it up when your leaving for the gym and slowly take it on your way to the gym... immediately before you lift... down half of it

Used it for 2 weeks now. An Hour afterwards it has full effect. Lots of energy at gym, more focus, and great pumps.

I like it better than any of the creatine I have tried.

I have nasty bowel movements, gas, that's about it.

I have used no-xplode,cellmass, and nitrix. I personally don't respond much to creatine, so thats out. The pump.... well i did have a little more focus, but what i really got was better recovery due to the arginine. i don't know, i seem to bloat up on the combo. I have to side with Bio on this. for the money, its not worth it for me.

I hope that you know that there is a big difference between nitric oxide and creatine. They are two totally different things. I am not sure if you know, so I will talk about it. If you do, then this is for those who do not. Nitric oxide can be used for creatine synthase, but creatine is completely different. Creatine phosphates are stored in the muscle. The creatine phosphates are basically used for immediate energy. This energy is used for breathing, walking, standing, any muscle contraction, for any cells that require energy, etc. There is something called ATP, which stands for adenosine triphosphate. There are three steps for rapid energy: glycolysis, kreb's cycle, and the chemiosmotic method. I am not going to go in depth about each step. That will take waaayyyyy too long. When ATP is used, it turns into ADP, which stands for adenosine diphosphate. When this happens, a creatine phosphate will latch on to become ATP. If you take creatine supplements, you can have creatine saturation in the muscles. The creatine phosphates will be readily available.

He is a quick answer, and it would be wise to take creatine and nitric oxide supps with a consistant training routine, if you are serious. They provide many uses that work together, but they are clearly different and have different uses.

I would not throw a lot of my money on products like these, but I would spend some and do use nitric oxide supps and straight l-arginine. You must be a smart consumer and find good prices and products. I do not use these supps for the "pump" that the marketers or promotors claim. I use these products for tissue repair. The great workouts or feelings of euphoria while on these supps is most likely a placebo, psychological effect, or the effects of stimulants mixed with the product. If are large amount of stimulants are in the product, it contradicts the effects of the l-arginine and nitric oxide. That is a waste of money.

However...Brewe...I do think that we are on the same page. I just wanted to be clear.
