The reason BSN Nitrix is the most popular Nitrix Oxide product on the market today is because it works!  Try some today and experience some seriously massive pumps!
 
 
1. What is it and where does it come from?
Nitric Oxide is a free form gas that is produced in the body and is used by the body to communicate with other cells in the body. To produce this gas, enzymes in the body break down the amino acid Arginine.

Nitric Oxide is a molecule consisting of one atom of nitrogen and one atom of oxygen. The production of Nitric Oxide occurs when the amino acid L-arginine is converted into L-citruline through an enzyme group known as Nitric Oxide Synthase (NOS). The chemical process of conversion is shown in figure 1.

2. What does it do and what scientific studies give evidence to support this?

Despite the claims of some in the supplement industry, there exists ample scientific literature to substantiate the efficacy of Nitric Oxide products. The following was written in May 1996 in a document prepared for the Royal Society and Association of British Science Writers:


"Summary research papers continue to flood the scientific journals and insights into the biological activity and potential clinical uses of nitric oxide (NO): a gas controlling a seemingly limitless range of functions in the body. Each revelation adds to nitric oxide's already lengthy resume in controlling the circulation of the blood, regulating activities of the brain, lungs, liver, kidneys, stomach and other organs.

The molecule governs blood pressure through a recently recognized process that contradicts textbook wisdom. It causes penile erection by dilating blood vessels and controls the action of almost every orifice from swallowing to defecation. The immune system uses nitric oxide in fighting viral, bacterial and parasitic infections, and tumors. Nitric oxide transmits messages between nerve cells and is associated with the process of learning, memory, sleeping, feeling pain, and, probably depression. It is a mediator in inflammation and rheumatism."

Since the above was written in 1996, Nitric Oxide containing products have continued to be touted by those in the medical profession, as well as by athletes looking to add muscle to their frames.

The above quotation states that Nitric Oxide controls the circulation of blood, transmits messages between nerve cells, and is a mediator of inflammation and is associated with the process of feeling pain. The popular erectile dysfunction drug sildenafil citrate (Viagra) contains nitric oxide and is responsible for increasing blood flow to the penis.

The fact that nitric oxide increases blood flow should make it of interest to bodybuilders, as increased blood flow will serve to deliver more nutrients to muscles, thus helping muscles become larger when subject to stress. The fact that Nitric Oxide acts to reduce inflammation should also make it of interest to bodybuilders as it has the potential to reduce the pain associated with subjecting muscles to extreme stress.

Nitric oxide also affects the endocrine system. It affects the release of gonadotroptin releasing hormone, as well as the release of adrenaline from the adrenal medulla.

3. Who needs it and what are some symptoms of deficiency?

Everyone REQUIRES nitric oxide to carry out key physiological processes within the body. From a bodybuilder's perspective, nitric oxide supplementation may prove useful in increasing growth due to increases in blood flow to certain areas of the body. Further, men suffering from erectile dysfunction may also find supplementing with nitric oxide helpful.

Signs of deficiency include the inability to achieve and sustain erections, physical weakness and extreme fatigue. Most "nitric oxide" supplements contain the amino acid Arginine-alpha-keto-glutarate.

4. How much should be taken? Are there any side effects?

With any amino acid containing product, overdose is a possibility. Dosing with too much arginine can lead to diarrhea, weakness and nausea. Clear dosing guidelines have not been established, so it is best to do what is known as "tolerance mapping". Take a small dosage for one week, note the benefits and the side effects, and increase the dosage until the benefits are maximized and the side effects minimized. Over time the two will converge and you will hit the optimal dose. This process is similar to "receptor mapping" for bodybuilders who use insulin.

Ultra micronized max bioavailability. Nitric oxide performance. Enhances blood flow to muscle. Increases endurance. Decreases recovery time. 5-HTP supports healthy serotonin levels & mood. 5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is a chemical that the body makes from tryptophan (an essential amino acid that you get from the diet). After tryptophan is converted into 5-htp, the chemical is then changed into another chemical called serotonin, a neurotransmitter, which relays signals between brain cells. 5-HTP dietary supplements help raise serotonin levels in the brain. Serotonin helps regulate mood and behavior meaning 5-HTP may have a positive effect on sleep, mood, anxiety, appetite, and pain sensation. Some doctors consider 5-HTP to be the best natural appetite suppressant.

Take 1 capsules (100 mg) with water or your favorite beverage twice daily in the morning & second dose mid-day or evening depending on preference.

Detoxification & Nitric Oxide. Supports Muscular Detoxification. Boost Nitric Oxide Levels. Decrease Recovery Time. Enhance Nitric Oxide Production & Recovery. Citrulline is an amino acid used to enhance nitric oxide (NO) production and for the detoxification of ammonia levels. Ammonia is a toxic byproduct of muscle metabolism which decreases performance. Nitric Oxide is responsible for dilating blood vessels which transports fresh nutrients and oxygen to working muscle while allowing toxins to be removed. Citrulline works Arginine & Ornithine to help rid the body of ammonia. Citrulline also provides a readily available substrate for arginine production, which is used for the production of nitric oxide. Increases nitric oxide production. Reduces lactic acid and ammonia. Improves muscle performance and recovery. Increases ATP and phosphocreatine recovery. Enhances pumps & improves nutrient delivery. Rids the body of fatigue-causing metabolic waste products.

Take 1 scoop (2000mg) with 6-8 oz water or your favorite beverage twice daily on an empty stomach. Take first dose in the morning & second dose one hour prior to workout. If workout is in the morning then take second dose a half hour prior to lunch. To maximize results, drink at least 64 oz of water daily while using L-Citrulline. For maximum benefit, take up to (6000mg) per day. When using powder mix for 15 to 20 seconds using a shaker cup or mix thoroughly with a spoon. May be hygroscopic and may clump during storage which will not affect the quality of the product
