White Blood Acclaim Thread
You guessed it...
White Blood is the most complete nitric oxide and transport enhancing formula around. It uses ethyl ester technology to enhance the delivery of the two key ingredients, arginine ethyl ester di-hcl (AEE) and ornithine ethyl ester di-hcl (OEE). These two amino acids are bonded to an ester, which increases the absorbability of both compounds. Esters are formed by a reaction between carboxylic acid and alcohol. The problem with most first-generation nitric oxide enhancers is that they degrade severely when ingested and do not reach their target to perform their duty. With esterfication, the arginine and ornithine can pass the digestive system intact and deliver incredible pumps and greater vasodilation than arginine AKG (alpha-ketoglutarate), which is contained in the most popular nitric oxide products, or any other nitric oxide enhancer could ever have achieved in the past.
The beauty of esterficiation is that less of the active material is needed to do a better job than the underlying non-esterfied compound. For instance, the average 200 pound man only needs about 1.5-1.75 grams of arginine ethyl ester before a workout for amazing pumps and enhanced nutrient uptake, whereas he would need more than three times the amount of arginine AKG to even come close to the same type of pumps. Larger doses of these compounds put stress on the body so AEE and OEE are much better choices since less of each is needed to illicit the same or better response as larger doses of the first-generation materials. Esterfication also prolongs the effects that each of these two compounds has. When you are in the gym you want your pump to last as long as your workout. You are tired of the current nitric oxide enhancers that last 15 minutes into your workout then the effects fizzle out. White Blood's pumps and increased nutrient uptake will last your entire workout and then some.
You have tried nitric oxide products in the past and none of them worked for you, right? Well that has been one of the problems with nitric oxide supplements. They were only effective for about 50-60% of the population. 40-50% of individuals were non-responders at the recommended and affordable dosages. White Blood's esterfied compounds work for nearly everybody, even past nitric oxide non-responders. Our tests have shown that White Blood will illicit pumps in at least 95% of the population. This occurs because most of the non-responders damaged the compounds in their digestive system, but with esterfication comes protection and delivery of much more of the underlying ingredient and, therefore, enhanced effects.
Ornithine Ethyl Ester (OEE): was added to the formula because of its synergistic effects with arginine. Like AEE, more OEE passes the digestive system more completely intact so that it can work more effectively at lower doses. OEE primarily increases muscle protein synthesis and makes your protein more effective due to increased uptake. OEE also increases the blood plasma level of arginine, thus contributing to even great nitric oxide stimulating effects. Last, but certainly not least, OEE can help stimulate the production of growth hormone (GH), which can lead to mass gains. High doses of ornithine consumption have been the cause for gastric discomfort, which is another great reason to esterfy it, so lower doses can be utilized efficiently.
Free Form Taurine: was added to increase protein synthesis primarily. However, it also contributes as a muscle cell volumizer, by drawing and holding more water into the muscle tissue. This amino works in concert with the AEE and OEE and amplifies their effects.
Antioxidants: were added to curb any of the free oxygen radicals that are left when the nitric oxide producing ingredients do their job. Nitric oxide works wonders in many ways, but is also leaves behind free radicals that can cause damage and disease. We included the best antioxidants around to make sure that free radicals are "cleaned up" when the nitric oxide effects disperse. In our opinion, any nitric oxide supplement that does not include antioxidants is being irresponsible.
As you can see, we have amassed the most complete nitric oxide formula on the market that works the most effectively and uses the smallest dose possible as not to cause damage to our consumer's bodies. We know that White Blood will become a staple in your supplement regimen. Tip! White Blood also has an amazing effect on erectile tissue as an added bonus.

And a review:
The Review - 7/10
This product is pretty good for the price. I used it with great results. Seeing how I don't like stimulants/caffeine, I chose the White BLOOD product, as it was an NO product. One thing I liked about it was that it had anti-oxidants in it. At $25 for a months supply, the price is pretty good too. I noticed a signifigant pump when lifting. I also noticed decreased recovery time and also deeper sleep.
Elaboration on White BLOOD
The backbone of White BLOOD includes 2 amino acids, Arginine and Ornithine. Arginine is synthesized from citrulline and plays an important role in cell division, the healing of wounds, removing ammonia from the body, immune function, and the release of hormones. It is a precursor of NO, which relaxes and dialates blood vessels. (1) This compound will not only create pumps, but will also shuttle nutrients through the blood more efficiently and is neseccary for the synthesis of creatine.
The next ingredient in White Blood is Ornithine, which acts as Arginine's partner in crime. In one double-blind, placebo-controlled study, a combination of 1 gram of arginine and 1 gram of ornithine daily, used in conjunction with a high-intensity strength-training program over a five-week period, increased total strength and lean body mass in adult males, compared with controls. (2) L-Arginine is naturally converted in the body to L-Ornithine by an enzyme called arginase. Both the arginine and ornithine in White BLOOD are in ethyl-ester form, which technically should improve absorbtion.
L-Ornithine is twice as potent as L-Arginine. Most people realize that teenagers can eat a great deal of food and not become obese, even if inactive. This is because of the growth hormone levels at their age. By taking L- Arginine and L-Ornithine, an individual may be able to resemble the growth hormone levels of a young adult or teenager.
The next compound we explore is the widely used L-Taurine, dosed 2000mg. Taurine has been shown in studies to lower blood pressure (3). It is one of the most abundant amino acids found in muscles and the central nervous system, and is thought to regulate muscle contractions, water balance and energy levels. There is also various feedback on Taurine alleviating depression. It is safe and has little to no side effects for most users. Taurine has shown the ability to lower muscle damage from intense exercise, and improve performance. (4)
Unfortunately, nitric oxide can produce unwanted free-radicals. Free radicals are atoms or groups of atoms with an odd (unpaired) number of electrons and can be formed when oxygen interacts with certain molecules. Once formed these highly reactive radicals can start a chain reaction, like dominoes. Their chief danger comes from the damage they can do when they react with important cellular components such as DNA, or the cell membrane. Cells may function poorly or die if this occurs. To prevent free radical damage the body has a defense system of antioxidants.
White BLOOD has a wide variety of antioxidants to fight this. We will do a quick evaluation of each.
K-RALA is the stable potassium salt form of R-Lipoic Acid. Researchers believe that R-lipoic acid may be up to 8 times more active than Alpha-Lipoic Acid. Helps control blood sugar, Increases ATP levels, Functions as a powerful antioxidant against numerous typer of free radicals.
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is produced by the human body and is necessary for the basic functioning of cells. CoQ10 levels are reported to decrease with age and to be low in patients with some chronic diseases. CoQ10 is a little easier to appreciate when you remember that vitamins function as co-enzymes in the body, furthering thousands of essential biochemical reactions. CoQ10's key role is in producing adenosine triphosphate (ATP), needed for energy production in every cell of the body. Secondary to that, CoQ10 functions as a powerful antioxidant.
Lutein and zeaxanthin
Lutein and zeaxanthin are members of the carotenoid family ó a group of natural plant pigments that also includes beta-carotene and lycopene. Most popularly known for protecting the eye from cataracts and Macular degeneration.
Folic acid is a B vitamin. It is used in our bodies to make new cells.
Selenium is a trace element that is essential in small amounts. Itís well known as a significant help in fighting cell-damaging free radicals in the body and in supporting a healthy immune system
Cryptoxanthin, also known as beta-cryptoxanthin, is a member of the carotenoid family, a group of flavonoids that provide color and flavor to fruits and vegetables. Carotenoids are proven antioxidants, and their role in protecting the body from free-radical damage has been well established.
Alpha-carotene is part of the carotenoid family, and is one of the most abundant carotenoids in a healthy diet. Your body can convert alpha and beta-carotene into vitamin A for the maintenance of healthy skin and bones, good vision, and a robust immune system.
