  1. Potassium Nitrate - how long can you take this s*$t?


    Really enjoying PN!
    How long can you take this stuff before a break?
    Are there any known (problem) side affects?

    Thanks for your input...

    Id imagine 8 weeks would be the longest you would want to take it without a break. Maybe 12 at the longest.

    Taking to much may cause low blood pressure, other than that i dont see any other problems.

  4. if you are only taking it 3-4 times per week you can probably take it as long as you like, provided you are not supplementing with other sources of nitrates. still though im not sure there is any reason to take it any more than 8 weeks on 4 weeks off type cycle. I have some past experience with various nitrates and found little if any change in my blood pressure even longer term. being that each individual is different, you should monitor yourself and see what works best for you and your wallet.

  5. Dose dependent I would guess. Basically you wouldn't want to ingest too much in an X-amount of time. I don't really see why there would be a need to cycle it though. If you eat lots of fruit and lots of beets, you're technically getting a lot of nitrates through those foods and last time I checked, nobody really cycles their fruits and beets intake :P

  6. I've been taking the potassium nitrate by iForce for a little over 3 months now... No noticeable issues yet doubt there will be

    This. I ran iForce potassium nitrate which was awesome. I ran it for 8 weeks and not a day after. Taking it though had me extra thirsty. I had to drink half a gallon extra of water per day but that's just me but I got great pumps from it though.

    Any other sources of potassium nitrate other than iforce?

  9. Just google "food grade potassium nitrate".

    Make sure you get enough vitamin C to tamp down nitrite free radical formation.

    Gotta co-ingest it

  12. What would happen if you ingested non food grade potassium nitrate? What makes one food grade and not the other? What chemical process does it go through?

  13. It's a quality assurance. I wouldn't mess with non-food grade. It could contain heavy metals or what have you. When it's food grade, it's been tested to insure that it's safe for humans to consume...when it's non-food grade you have no such insurance.

  14. That suggestion about vitamin c is a good one. This really will help you counter act the PN. It's what I would suggest doing. I really think that you should consider stacking it with something else. Are you taking Creatine right now,?

    Don't think some Indian supplier wont sell non-food grade raws as food grade. Many companies just go by a suppliers' COA

    That's the convenience of iForce's Potassium Nitrate - vit. C right in the same cap, can't get more co-ingested than that.

    Maybe a suspension would providing a better form of co-ingesting?

  18. Arent nitrates toxic to a certain degree especially for babys?why shall they drink water with only little nitrate?ever heard of blue babys?hope my Q is not too much off topic

    I believe this is dose dependent.

  20. I would agree with the 8 week recommendation. Good to know about the vit-c, I was un aware of that.
    Has already stated the iForce Potasium Nitrate has the vit-c already in it and with 120 caps in a bottle, that should easily last 8 weeks.

  21. I have taken other forms of nitrates for months at a time, without cycling off of them. I imagine Potassium Nitrate would be no different, although if you are taking it every day it might be beneficial to take a break at some point. I typically use nitrates only on workout days and never on leg days. As has been mentioned the benefits of Vitamin C co-ingestion are significant with iForce's product that part has already been handled.

    Nutrigaurd is a great value.

  23. no need to cycle off of it if you're only using it on workout days.

    Let me know if you have any more questions

    ^^ this. I think 500mg would even suffice but more wouldn't hurt for added anti-oxidant benefits.

    Dietary supplement with vitamin C prevents nitrate tolerance.

    coadministration of Vit-C and GTN fully maintained the GTN-induced changes in the orthostatic blood pressure, and the rise of a/b ratio was augmented by 310% for the duration of the test period. Changes in vascular tolerance in GTN-treated subjects were paralleled by upregulation of the activity of isolated platelets, which was also reversed by Vit-C administration. These findings demonstrate that dietary supplementation with Vit-C eliminates vascular tolerance and concomitant upregulation of ex vivo-washed platelet activity during long-term nonintermittent administration of GTN in humans.

    A babies development and anatomy vary greatly to that of adults. I'm not sure how old of a baby you are talking about, but if you are talking about a newborn, they could still have a pda and I don't think you would really want to exacerbate that and create an environment of mixing between oxygenated and non oxygenated blood.

    Aside from that, no clue what you are talking about.. but "Blue Baby." That is usually referred to in an infant with a cardiac defect like tetrology of falot where you can have a "Red Tet" or "Blue Tet," which is solely dependent on the presence of a pda and the hearts ability to pump oxygenated blood around the baby.

    Blue baby syndrome bro... high nitrate content is a no-no for the babies. I know you know this but that's the syndrome name he is specifically talking about.

    More than 500 pre or post actually could hurt
