    Dude I also recently got the Launch Pills after seeing the top notch profile. But my goodness, it may be in the top 5 worst preworkouts I've ever tried. The stim effect felt like <40mg caffeine and I didn't get the endurance boost that I typically experience with Cit Mal or CN. I would love to hear your thoughts, as my only present theory is the tablet delivery system inefficient.

    Be glad I didn't make a review. But seriously, I'm legitimately interested in seeing why I didn't respond to this

    I tend to think your explanation makes sense, but there were several users that loved it so I'm not sure what to think. I can say that it hasn't been produced for a long while now and isn't getting revived w/ a DMAA-free version like Launch 4350 is.

  6. Interesting, I had a good experience with launch tabs. I always did fasted with lots of water. That said, I enjoy fierce and pump-Bol more for nitrates. Still got a half tub of pump-Bol

  7. I still have pounds of bulk creatine nitrate from MF. Good stuff all around, i stack it with MCC when I use creatine.

    Hmm interesting i liked the look of the profile cause i love Cit Mal for endurance boost still believe COP is the best endurance boost i've got so far especially when both are combined.

    Share a little bit more about nitrates please.

    My assumption from what I have observed is that the nitrate is an ester. Am I correct? I have seen a variety of things that are nitrated these days - creatine nitrate, insert BCAA of choice _________ nitrate, bata-alanine nitrate, etc., etc..

    What are worthwhile nitrates from the perspective of performance and endurance enhancement? What are the whorthwhile nitrates from the perspective of 'pump' (nox?) enhancement? What are the worthwhile nitrates that embody both?

    Thanks in advance.

    Nitrates are actually salts in the manner that we use them in dietary supplements.

    Essentially all nitrates are created equal for the purposes of performance enhancement/pumps, as it is the nitrate portion we are concerned about. The benefits will be most profound for endurance work, but there's no reason to believe they can't aid with anaerobic work capacity.

    Some studies on the ergogenic benefit:

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21471821
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19913611
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22248502
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20702806
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19661447
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21407132
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21071588
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20466802

    And I can go on...The effects are well-documented and nitrates appear to aid both aerobic and anaerobic training (sound familiar? See citrulline malate, which boosts endogenous production of NO). In contrast to citrulline malate, nitrates are an exogenous NO source. They don't take part in any heavily regulated pathways in the body, and thus, user-dependent effects and loss of effectiveness over time are mitigated. Furthermore, nitrates have a high half-life (~8 hours). The two downsides to nitrates are that: a. safety can become an issue if they are dosed too high/abused, since they are after all an exogenous NO source, and b. they must be co-administered with a hefty dose of vitamin C in order to prevent carcinogenicity/nitrosation.

    With respect to your question, nitrates are nitrates. Some may make the argument that arginine nitrate reduces nitrate tolerance. I would make the argument that nitrate tolerance was never an issue to begin with unless you are dosing nitrates 2-3 times daily for weeks to months (see clinical use of nitrates). All the nitrates you listed are great options for pumps and endurance. My favorite nitrate product, and probably the best formulated, is C-Bol.

  13. my favorite is c bol. The original powdered preworkout Launch, i really enjoyed it alot. great pump off of it

  14. The popular marketing is that having ____ nitrate makes things absorb better. My company does this as well, but it's more or less a load of BS. Nitrates are definitely the real deal, though, when it comes to performance enhancement.

    Stims/nootropics + nitrates + citrulline malate = best workouts sans anabolics

    SAN's Fierce stacked with citrulline malate has produced a marked increase in performance and endurance.

  16. I have used C-Bol and it's probably the best CN formula on the market but I don't like the carcinogenic potential of CN. I have found that I can get just as good a pump using Beta Alanine plus CM and I also receive the health benefits associated with both products.

    Fierce is definitely one of my favorites. I have also noticed that quality of citrulline malate varies from brand to brand. Certain brands (won't name any) use a very high amount of malate with very limited citrulline. It meets label claims, sure, but it is far less effective.

    Same thing with agmatine unless I'm eating a ton of carbs. I mean agmatine also makes me sleepy.

    I was about to say, I think it's related to your diet + insulin "sensitizers"/BP-lowering ingredients.

    Sounds like inside information there.
