Some of the guys around here were looking into a supplement called "nitrous." They wanted me to ask if it is at all possible that you all could give me the rundown on it. What are the positive/negative effects, cost, effectiveness, etc. Please keep in mind that I can't check any websites, there is a firewall on my computer that will not allow me to do so, so if you have any information, please type it as a response. Thanks.

Keep in mind that I have never tried these supplements,

From the site: http://www.musclesurf.com/what--is-nitric-oxide.html

What Is Nitric Oxide?
Nitric oxide (also known as "NO") is a gas that functions as a signaling molecule (neurotransmitter) telling your body to make blood vessels relax and widen.


What Does Nitric Oxide Do?

NO gives more blood to organs when needed. When your arms need more blood supply for movement or for warmth, for example, the brain signals the blood vessels in the arms to release NO.

After a big meal, NO sends more blood to your stomach to help you digest the food. It controls blood pressure, giving more blood when you exercise, and reducing the flow of blood when our body is at rest.

NO is also responsible for the relaxation of blood vessels in the penis, causing the blood to pool which produces an erection. The anti-impotence drugs Viagra ® and Levitra ® work in much the same way.

Nitroglycerin works to help chest pain by releasing NO gas, which dilates the blood vessels in the heart.



What is Nitric Oxide Used For?

Bodybuilders and athletes know that Nitric Oxide is a valuable part of their success because it’s responsible for blood flow, oxygen delivery, glucose uptake, muscle velocity, power output, and muscle growth.

Increasing Nitric Oxide levels can deliver continuous muscle-enhancing benefits like:

Faster gains in lean mass
Greater strength
Providing better muscle recovery
Increasing endurance
When you exercise hard, Nitric oxide opens the blood floodgates, allowing blood to surge in. This is the "pump" so coveted by bodybuilders and athletes alike. But exercise-induced pumps are only temporary. They disappear soon after exercise has ended.

But new and effective NO stimulator formulations are changing that. The muscle pump you get from these supplements can help you retain that post-exercise, blood-engorged, rock-hard condition longer than before. Even massive, vein-popping pumps show no sign of diminishing. That's because NO generates a continuous surge of blood that courses through the skeletal muscle throughout the day. So muscles remain engorged and steel-like all day long.



Maybe someone who's tried it can tell you have effective it is.

I wasn't referring to Nitrous oxide, I was referring to a supplement that has the brand name nitrous.

It's a Nitric Oxide enhancer.

There are a couple of brands using that name:
VPX Muscle Nitrous
Syntrax Nitrous

That's why I gave you the generic information.

Nitrous Oxide is used in anesthesia and drag racing.

I used N.O. xplode (same principle) and had results at first. I stopped using it and saw no decrease in performance. Hindsight being perfect, I believe there was a placebo effect only. That's my opinion. I also am a firm believer that if it works on the mind, it works on the body. In other words, if it helped me mentally to bust through a plateau, then it ws worth the money. I don't plan on buying it again, though.

I appreciate the feedback, and I guess my ignorance on the subject of supplements probably shows through, which is why I had to ask...I didn't want to feed my guys a bunch of b.s. If you have had better experiences with something else, I'd be interested to hear the effects, and the science behind it.

i have tested taking 3-4 grams of L Arginine(for producing NO) 45 minutes before sex...it makes the erection more intense...the result is even better if 1 gram of L-Valine is taken at the same time

there's a lot of research on using L-Arginine (NO) as an alternative of Viagra/Levita...it's less expensive and there's not much side-effect
