RPN's NOxidant Q&A Summary:
Q: What are free radicals and how do they form?
A: By definition a free radical is any atom (I.E. oxygen, nitrogen) with at least one unpaired electron in the outermost shell. Before we go any further, here's a very brief summary of what an atom is.
An atom contains a nucleus made up of protons(positively charged particles) and neutrons(electrically neutral particles). Circling around the outside of this nucleus are pairs of electrons(negatively charged particles.)
A free radical is easily formed when a covalent bond(sharing of electrons between atoms) is broken and one electron remains with each newly formed atom. Free radicals are highly reactive due to the presence of unpaired electron(s). So essentially, these newly formed free radical(s) will do anything in their power to steal any nearby electron(s) to stabilize themselves. This includes stealing electrons from nearby stable healthy cells damaging them greatly over time. This can lead to a chain reaction of free radical development.
There are certain types of activities/foods/situations that can increase the opportunity of free radical formation. (I.E. smoking, pollution, high fat and sugar diets.) As you all may have guessed by now, bodybuilding/training/exercise can also greatly increase free radical formation. This is mainly due to increased stress and oxygen intake leading to increased free radical formation.
Q: What are Antioxidants and how do they work?
A: Antioxidants by definition are any substance(s)that slow or prevent the oxidation process. Antioxidants work by donating an electron to these unstable free radical(s) stabilizing them. This can then in turn prevent the possibility of a chain reaction of free radical development. This can result from the excessive free radical formation in the absence of sufficient antioxidants which help prevent them.
After donating an electron an antioxidant also becomes a free radical in itself by definition. Antioxidants in this state are not harmful because they have the ability to accommodate the change in electrons without becoming reactive or harmful however.
There are many different types of antioxidants overall. Our body can synthesize some of them, however many of the necessary antioxidants must be taken in through a proper diet and supplementation program. The key here is to restore the balance within the body and keep free radicals in check, not completely eliminate them. Free radicals also attack germs within the body, they don't solely attack healthy normal cells.
Q: How can proper Antioxidant intake assist me in my training and muscle gains?
A: When we workout there is an increase in free radical formation within our bodies. If this free radical formation begins to rise faster than it's being neutralized, you can fall victim to what is known as oxidative stress. This can cause you to feel very tired, have poor training endurance, make you more prone to training injuries, and cause a lowered immune response leading to frequent illness. This oxidative stress is not very conducive to a successful diet, supplementation, and training program.
By ingesting the proper Antioxidants post-workout, you can help limit the amount of oxidative stress and maintain a more anabolic environment......something many of us all strive to attain each day.
RPN has designed a product that will provide very effective Antioxidant protection and assist in your overall training goals.

Q: What is Nitric Oxide?
A: Nitric Oxide (nitrogen monoxide, NO)
Nitric oxide, a colorless, toxic, non-flammable gas, is the most stable nitrogen oxide. This is chemically interesting since the molecule is paramagnetic (has an unpaired electron). This unshared electron makes the NO molecule highly reactive.
In animals, nitric oxide is a neurotransmitter implicated in mediating a number of physiological processes including relaxation of smooth muscles, inhibition of platelet aggregation, increasing kidney filtration and urine production, penile erection (Viagra works by generation of NO), and inhibition of inflammation. Since it is a gas, it rapidly diffuses through the cell to its site of biological activity. But, since it is highly reactive, it is rapidly inactivated.
NO is generated in the body by the reaction of an enzyme Nitric Oxide Synthetase (NOS) in the reaction
Arginine + O2 ===> Citrullene + NO
There are two importance items to notice about this reaction:
1. Oxygen, not nitrogen is the gaseous component of the reaction
2. An increase in pO2 will drive the reaction to the right (Le Chateliers Principle) and produce more NO.
This suggests that the sharp threshold of oxygen toxicity at depth may be related to NO (a very reactive oxidizing agent). In other words, increasing pO2 will produce an increasing excess of an excitatory neurotransmitter. The body has a variety of defense mechanisms to remove or inactivate highly reactive oxidizers (like NO), but eventually, too much NO would overwhelm protective mechanisms. So, a simplistic way of conceptualizing an oxygen toxicity hit, is to view CNS oxygen toxicity as overwhelming the bodies defenses with too much oxidative, excitatory neurotransmitters.
Finally, some other NO factoids:
Nitroglycerin used in reducing angina attack works by generating NO which leads to pain-relieving heart muscle vasodilatation.
Nitric oxide is implicated in the initiation of firefly light emission.
Nitric oxide has been used in the treatment of surgical pulmonary embolisms. Its vasodilatation ability reduces blood pressure in the lungs.
Nitric oxide is a common component of automobile pollution. It is a primary component in photochemical smog.
Because of its chemical properties, the molecule often dimerizes to form N2O2.
Q: When is the proper time of day to take NOxidant?
A: This largely depends upon if it's a training day or not. On training days we recommend that you take (3)capsules preferably before bed at night to combat the excessive formation of training induced free radical formation. Taking this before bed at night allows ample time for training induced free-radical formation to act upon cellular/muscle damage, and allowing for cell signaling to occur.(which is very beneficial leading to better gains). However, if this free radical chain reaction process is allowed to continue, the damage will eventually outweigh the benefits. Much research supports taking the dosing before bed to help limit the free radical cascade or chain reaction from getting to the negative point of compromising gains, instead of enhancing them.
This product provides your body with very effective Antioxidant protection to further enhance your overall training induced stimulation and recovery processes leading to better overall results.
On non-training days, we recommend you take NOxidant first thing in the morning. Dosing would be (3)capsules upon rising in the a.m.
Q: What kind of overall results can i expect with using NOxidant?
A: NOxidant provides a very potent blend of necessary Antioxidants most of which are very specific in treating free radical formation resulting from the reactive nitrogen species which is very destructive to our bodies.
During intense weight training, NO(nitric oxide) is synthesized by the body and free radical formation results as by-products of aerobic metabolism. NOxidant is specifically designed to protect you from this destructive free radical process post workout. NOxidant can provide you with the following overall training/health benefits:
-A quicker recovery time
-Enhanced overall muscle gains/results
-Increased training endurance
-A strengthened immunologic state
-Help prevent precipitant cellular aging/death
-Improved NO(NITRIC OXIDE) utilization
Q: What are some supplements that would be effective to stack with NOxidant?
A: RPN has put together a very specific stack with Nimbus Nutrition called "The Rejuvenation stack." This stack contains the supplements, NOxidant, Gut Health, and Poseidon. Together this combination of very effective and synergistic supplements enhance all of the benefits we've already described above. It's the ultimate way to rejuvenate your body back into a healthy and anabolic state. Get this stack at the one and only nutraplanet!!
NOxidant also works very well with NO(nitric oxide) enhancing supplements and citruilline malate. It will potentiate their effects for even better results overall.
NOxidant can greatly enhance all of your training and health goals at a very affordable price. Don't delay your potential progress any longer, add NOxidant into your supplementation regime to assist in the formation of the NEW AND IMPROVED you!!
