Nitric Oxide..


New Member
I saw this ad from EAS about Nitron 5, was wondering about it, here's what they say it contains: Nitric Oxide, arginin, ornitin, niasin, evodiamine, gypentosides and extracts from black pepper.

I'd laugh and go 'thats bullcrap' but thought I'd ask here for opinions or know-how.

There's not really any conclusive evidence that NO products aid in hypertrophy. They can give you a good pump, and in a recent article I read there was new research out of Texas I believe that indicated the increased blood flow may aid significantly in nutrient/amino acid delivery to the muscle cells, but there's really nothing solid. The pumps give a nice psychological boost, but you can get that with arginine which is a lot cheaper than all NO products. Arginine or AAKG is usually the main acitve ingredient in those products. Now Foods has a nice AAKG pill that's fairly cheap.

Anecdotally, yes. I'm not aware of any research that shows it increases blood flow to the penis anywhere near as effectively as cialis or viagra.
"Although a rare occurrence, men who experience a bicep pump for more than 4 hours should seek medical attention."

Sorry, couldn't resist.
NO is a vasodilator, and doesn't have a long half life in vivo . . .not to mention that prior to it's discovery as an endogenous vasodilator in the mid 80s, it was recognised as a poison . . . .throw this in with the fact that your vessels get all the dilation they can stand when you workout . . .and I think it's $$ saving time
