Agmatine | SNS - Serious Nutrition Solutions
I've become accustomed to getting a good pump during training sessions and needless to say, I'm really excited to try SNS ! There seems to be a lot of benefits from it, but I'd like to see some nasty pumps in the gym, better recovery , and a longer lasting pump....because WHO doesn't that? lol
I plan on dosing this two ways: 4 caps 45min pre workout and 2 caps AM, 2 caps 45min pre workout.
I'm currently recomping, so I'm around 2700 cals daily.
Weights/cardio 4-5 days per week. I hit each muscle group once a week. Right now, I'm using med-low weight/high reps.
If you want to know anything else or more details, just ask.
I welcome all questions, suggestions, comments and critiquing!
This is good stuff! Needless to say I'm in!
I won't be losing any of these caps, they're bright orange! The smell isn't terrible, easy to go down the hatch.
I started with 2 caps in the morning, 2 caps pre workout.
Didn't notice any crazy pumps, but I had a good workout. The pumps were there, but more towards the end of the workout/cadio. Tommorow, I'll take my 2 caps a little earlier. I might do my cardio before I lift as well.
When do most people start to see it working?
I'm in. Hope you enjoy the

No pumps!?! My pumps are insane with this stuff. In fact, I can't even take them on leg day because the pump in my quads ruins my workout, lol.
Don't get me wrong they were there, just nothing crazy. To be honest though, I only took my preworkout dose 25min prior to training. I unexpectedly got off of work early, so that messed with my schedule a bit.
FWIW I usually dose mine 500mg-1000mg 15min before my pre-workout meal. So it's about 1.5hrs before my workout.
1000 mg pre workout seems to be my sweet spot.
Anybody have an explanation yet how agmatine works? Both companies keep saying that it inhibits NOS, which it does, but NOS synthesizes NO and does not degrade NO as advertised.
Curious to see how you like the dosing at 4 caps. Everyone seems to time theirs a little differently for best results.

'You’ve most likely heard about eNOS…endothelial nitric oxide synthase…the enzyme that converts arginine into nitric oxide and gives you those awesome pumps in the gym. But did you know there are two other forms for NOS? I’m talking about cytokine-inducible NOS (iNOS) and neuronal NOS (nNOS). Now, all three increase Nitric Oxide. However, iNOS increases Nitric Oxide in immune cells, and this can lead to chronic states of inflammation. Obviously, not good. And nNOS increases Nitric Oxide in neuronal tissue, which is not where we want Nitric Oxide elevated.
We want Nitric Oxide elevated in the soft endothelial tissues lining your blood vessels, and that’s precisely what Agmatine does. It’s like laser targeted NOS expression! Agmatine effectively inhibits iNOS and nNOS without doing so to eNOS…and that means more vein splitting, vaso-dilating, muscle engorging PUMPS!
And Agmatine doesn’t stop there. It boosts Nitric Oxide through two additional pathways by stimulating the release of Nitric Oxide itself while inhibiting those enzymes that break Nitric Oxide down. The end result is simple. Targeted Nitric Oxide production for LONG LASTING muscular pumps.'

I also like 1g ~40 mins prior to working out....

Agmatine is not specific enough to only target iNOS and nNOS and it isn't a good idea to inhibit either of those for normal physiological function. My thesis was creating a model of schizophrenia in the rat by inhbitiing nNOS. But my question doesn't even consider that. Simply put, Agmatine is advertised as a NOS inhibitor and both companies go on to say that NOS degrades NO. This is completely false. NOS is nitric oxide synthase, the enzyme that synthesizes nitric oxide. NO breaks down quite fine on its own.
I dose mine about 45 minutes prior on an empty stomach with LOTS of water.
