    Nitric Oxide Pros Cons

    Ive been really debating about using nitric oxide. I was training with a power lifter and he says that the vasodilatation effects of NO shunts the blood to give you a fake pump and keeps the broken down metabolites in the muscle tissue which can be harmful.

    On the other hand, Ive heard people get amazing gains with it.
    Any clarifications or experiences?

    What I have learned is Vasodialation will help increase blood flow (the vessels are larger) which carries more O2, and nurishment to the muscles. I have had great success w/ it. But remember power lifter and BB'ers are 2 COMPLETELY different groups. Most don't like each other.

    NO Explode is LOADED w/ caffine upwards of 500mg/serving and after 7 days on you will need to up the dose.

    Here's a few I have used and liked.

    Axis Labs' SMASH
    Vyotech's NITROBOLIC EXTREME
    Dymatize's EXPAND
    NxLabs' VASO

    Stay away fro Muscle Tech. and NO2 NO2 is 5X the price it should be.

    1quick1 has used some good ones.

    Which proves another point....everyone reacts differently.
    NO Explode sells more than any other so itr must work.

    My favorites were VPX NO Shotgun and Millennium Sport Ragnarok. I never tried NO Explode but that's because it's expensive for the amount of servings you get. Superpump 250 tasted pretty good but wasn't as strong as the NO Shotgun and not even close to as strong as Ragnarok. Ragnarok is some potent stuff.

    Re: Nitric Oxide Pros Cons

    yohimbe + NO works well

    NO by itself ... not so much in most

    ephedrine
    (the opposite effect...but beats the shit out of both IMO:cool
    the only downside; not a good idead when bulking.

    the "pump" is vastly overrated anyway. ARNOLD is vastly overrated.

    btw...about 70% of my friends that took no-xplode got the shits from it. I never did, since I never took it lol.

    so, to answer the TITLE of your thread...there really are no CONS. just don't take it WITH ephedrine...that would be a pretty damn big waste of money lol. Price is a little high for most retail products, but you can buy bulk arganine for cheap. Mix that with Yohimbe and caffeine and you have yourself a better mix that supplement companies provide for quite a bit cheaper.

    The only drawback to Argine by itself most of it gets destroyed in the gut, so it must be buffered like Arginine-AKG.

    Pre-workout arginine (in a fasted state), significantly blunts gh - Bodybuilding.com Forums

    Re: Nitric Oxide Pros Cons

    I used N.O. Xplode and about halfway though the container I had built a tolerance (Over about a 2 week period). They tell you not to go over 3 scoops in a 24 hr period but I guess it all depends on a persons' tolerance as you said. I recently started taking MRI's Blackpowder and I like it a lot more than N.O. Xplode for a lot of reasons. One of the big ones is that I feel more focused with it than the N.O. Xplode, which I think may have a lot to do with the huge amounts of caffine in the N.O. Xplode. I drink enough caffine throughout the day anyway just to stay alive...I don't need any more than I can handle in my pre workout supplement. I don't know as far as how good NO products are for you, but I do know that it is produced naturally in the body. I also like the fact that black powder contains more creatine, which is something that my diet lacks because I don't eat meat. Regardless of the cons of NO, all I know is that it gets my ass to the gym and lifting whenever I take it. That's all I care about.ress:

    NO xplode is very popular regardless, so it's got to work for some people. I'd still like to try a small container some time in the near future
