What is Nitric Oxide? NO or nitric oxide is a free form gas that is produced in the human body and is used by the body to talk with other cells. This gas is produced by enzymes in the body by breaking down the amino acidArginine.
How Does Nitric Oxide Help My Workout? NO causes vasodilation (an expansion of the internal diameter of blood vessels), which in turn leads to increased blood flow, oxygen transport, delivery of nutrients to skeletal muscle, and a reduction in blood pressure. An amino acid compound called arginine alpha-ketoglutarate (A-AKG) and arginine-ketoisocaproate (A-KIC) can boost short term Nitric Oxide levels.
You can expect increased strength and a substantial improvement in stamina.
How much arginine should I take? What are the side-effects? There are no clear guidelines for arginine dosing. Too much can cause diarrhea or nausea. Start with a small dose your first week and depending on your side effects and positive effects increase your dosage.
What Nitric Oxide products should I use? There are new products now available at HouseOfNutrition.com providing effective NO levels at an affordable price. Pinnacle and IDS are two very popular AKG products. These affordable sources of arginine are called Pinnacle NoX2 and IDS NP2. These products are very similar to the NO2 product made by MRI. Additionally we carry the very popular BSN Nitrix.
How much arginine do these products provide? NoX2 and NP2 both have 3000 mg of Arginine Alpha-Ketoglutarate (also known as AKG) per serving.
Will I notice results from NoX2 and NP2? Yes! Many users have already reported strong and positive feedback on both products. The pumps are provided at a fraction of the price.
Should I choose NoX2 or NP2? Because Pinnacle is such an established name, NoX2 has become an instant success. It is currently our top selling product and is moving fast. However, NP2 by IDS is a strong contender. In addition to its potent dose of AKG, it also includes compounds like Tribulus, Avena Sativa, Ginseng and Magnesium. Either way, we are confident that you wont be disappointed with either product.
