    Not too surprised. Only trust a few companies these days. Sad the industry is like this though.

    I think they already attempted to sue BSN for NO Xplode. They claimed they had some form of creatine in both products that apparently doesn't exist.

    Why don't you think an ester of arginine doesn't exist, synthesis of it is clearly possible.

    Whether it's in Nitrix is a different matter.

    I was just assuming that they most likely did not go out of their way to synthesize one to put in their product(s) :P

    I mean, in the previous lawsuit, BSN was synthesizing:

    Dicreatine Ethyl Ester Malate instead of the Creatine Ethyl Ester Malate that was on the label, as per their own patent application, synthesis method, and lab tests.

    --

    I really don't see why they wouldn't be able to competently put arginine ethyl ester in a product.

    So, what would be your take on why it's not detectable in the product?

    Under dosed? Bad raws? Mix of both?

    Given that I'm pretty sure BSN doesn't even sell that version of Nitrix any more and hasn't since their 2.0 series of products, I would guess degradation of the material over the several year shelf life.

    Didnt they get busted in 2005 or so for cellmass not containing any creatine in it? I do believe this is for the old Nitirix. The new one uses citrulline.

    The 2005 thing was settled out of court but amounted to effectively a label typo AFAIK
