Anyone get results from Nitric oxide products?
Just curious, Im looking for some supplements that are not danagerous with no side effects or long term side effects and I was considering a Nitric oxide product. Im just concerned if this product actually works, Iv heard kinda mixed results. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Edit: Also if anyone could suggest a good Nitric oxide product brand and maybe a place that sells some for less then an arm and leg would be great.

Omega Lightning is very good, I noticed more energy and endurance while training. Use CEE w/ it.

I'm gonna have to agree here, i have used No-Explode for a few days now and noticed next to no difference.
The first time i used it, i used just a single scoop as it suggested, to test tolerance and within 30mins i was absoloutly buzzing. I had taken it before going to work (as this is when i had been delivered and i wanted to see what it did) i couldnt stand still for a second at work and everyone was commenting that i was absoloutly hyper. The buzz and hype seemed to wear off in about 2 hours but i could still see that i was not standing still and constantly looking for things to do for pretty much the rest of my time at work.
After this, nothing. I took another scoop the next day pre workout and felt nothing. dissapointed i took a scoop the day after (a non workout day) and again nothing. Today i took 2 scoops pre workout and yet again....nothing.
It's frustrating cause i KNOW what it should be doing after that first time i used it, but since then it has had no noticable effect.

IMO, Nitric Oxide products don't do much if anything in terms of muscle gains. They're just fun, good feeling type supps. Getting an extra huge pump and feeling swole every time you lift is great for motivation. The rest is diet & training bro.

Well, that's not exactly what the study says. It actually says that arginine stimulates the release of GH.....but that in combination with exercise the GH output is lower than with exercise alone. So you could interpret this to say that if your primary goal is GH stimulation, you should avoid arginine supplementation.

As an aside, I'm not a big fan of arginine supplementation because I don't believe it does all that much. However, I do personally take some for the cardiovascular benefits.

It's purely cosmetic. Sure, it's fun to look pumped up, but you are not stronger, or gaining mass. Stop taking it and you 'deflate'.
Citrulline is another story: it aids performance and recovery, and gives good pumps. Millennium Sport Citruvol gave me the hardest pump I've ever experienced, and I had a great workout on it. Sadly, it's not more well-known. Horsepower give wicked pumps, too, but it's low on citrulline.

I got pretty good results from NO2. I am not sure how so many people didn't!
Seriously, it is a pretty darn good pde-5 inhibitor. Round 5, no problem.

No-xplode only seems to work if it's taken on an empty stomach and if you haven't drank any water in a couple of hours. Otherwise it doesn't seem to do anything. Just a little something I've observed.
One thing BUGS me about this product though. Why does it say "DO NOT SHAKE" in big letters on the bottle, but to stir it only?

I had really good results from geen bulge stacked with white blood. Also no explode worked good but you do have to take it on an empty stomach. It also tends to not work after a month or so.

Okay i don't care what anyones says about Muscletech products because im not a fan either. But NaNox9 is disgusting the craziest pumps ever. I love Nitric Products so much becasue they increase natural GH levels and you don't seem to gain a lot of fat because most of the nutrients can are used up because of the widen of blood vessels.

Nitrogen reactive species are free radicals created due to over production of NO.. This is why the body makes Arginase and PDE-5, it knows when too much is bad..
Take strong antioxidants with any nitric oxide booster, namely NAC an alpha/R-lipoic acid..

Ditto ..bigpete. I stopped taking NO supps for that reason. The best for the price however is nutraplanet's "Ultimate Mass Stack" 20 bucks for a month's supply. Good part is they also have NOX-Ident, specifically formulated for NO products.

shaking it is like shaking a can of soda then opening it, you release the carbonation , same thing your releasing the N.O. before you drink it . You want it released into your blood stream

Anything can work if you really can convince yourself that it will.
However, arginine/NO supps are on the list of "ain't proven by science". I personally wouldn't spend a penny on it.

The last NO product I had was this one and It was my last one. 80 buck for a 20 day supply what a joke. Didn't even feel anything! To me it was nothing but GARBAGE.
