A lot of the products that give you a great pump contain nitrates. I have heard that nitrates should be avoided for health reasons, but I have also heard that they are naturally found in vegetables. So what do you guys think about potential side effects from nitrates in the pre-workout products?

"it would seem as though the carcinogenic potential [might] be an issue for those who chronically use nitrate formulas that do not incorporate antioxidants/nitrosation inhibitors into the formula. In terms of nitrates, ThermoLife seems to be in a category by themselves in respect to insuring the health of the consumer. When you look at the majority of nitrate marketing [not that there's much at this point], there seems to be an absence of emphasis on this subject. "

While we are on the subject of safety and potential side effects, what are your thoughts on synephrine and Citrus Aurantium (bitter orange) that are in a lot of pre-workout formulas? I have been reading that it is basically an ephedrine, which was banned because it may cause a heart attack or a stroke, and other side effects? Is it really true? Is there a real danger or are those claims highly exaggerated?

LCLT was great for HIIT when I used it. Also reduced soreness, not placebo by any means.
GPLC did not do much for pumps for me. I used MHP NO Bomb and noticed no difference.
PLCAR is great when you're stim-free and need an energy boost. It really wakes you up without stimming you up.

I get the best pumps from Pump-O-Bol. GPLC works at very high doses which makes it expensive. As far as GPLC is concerned NO-Bomb worked best for me but you have to take it about two hours prior to your workout. Timing is critical with this product which makes it kind of a pain. I get nothing from Agamatine as far a pumps are concerned. C-Bol is a close second to Pump-O-Bol. Here again nitrates. As I said before GlyerGrow and/or glycerin doesn't do a thing for me.

Good thread...you should try the new WF v2, with the updated flavors! I'd like to see a review on that.
