    I haven't used it in over a year but definitely enjoy it. The pumps are sick! Just haven't justified spending a lot on creatine lately.

    does this cause headaches with nitrates. I plan on dosing whatever mesomorph had in it. I was super strong while taking that supplement and think that creatine nitrate helped with strength gains. However, i got sides from all the stims.

    Some can get headaches when getting more than 600 or so mgs of nitrates in a short time. Most companies are using 1g of CN which is abbout 312mgs off nitrates so you should be fine. I just orderd some APS for $21 but will probably pick up some Mesomorph as well soon

    Creatine Nitrate is a common way to get nitrates. Nitrates are amazing for pumps and endurance. However, don't consider creatine nitrate a source of creatine. It is essentially mono and nitrates, does not absorb any super special way, etc. ThermoLife, SAN, Cellucor, and some others have used it.

    Strong this.

    Nitrates have been show to increase mitochondrial efficiency. Studies show a reduction in VO while maintaining maximal work output, and of course they are solid vasodilators.

    From phone so can't post sources. Will later if asked.

    Nitrates are the real deal. I am talking from a performance-enhancing standpoint. I couldn't care less about pumps.

    A typical dose of creatine nitrate is 1 gram, meaning you get ~500mg creatine mono. This is about 10% of the dose that used to make you bloat, etc.

    The Creatine capsules by APS? I believe my fiance took those he also loved those! He said they gave him the best pumps.. he felt fuller and no bloat! I think his favorite is still Creatine Mono though!

    I don't think nitrates should be used as supplements.

    Where did you find it for $21? I pay like $35-$40

    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.

    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.

    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:

    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.

    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.
