Nitric Oxide: Time to EXPLODE!

Not growing fast enough? Not pumping hard enough? It’s time to bring out the big guns with NITRIC OXIDE!

Nitric Oxide is a chemical compound (NO) which has a vast number of uses (in the human body and as a chemical intermediate), as well as sources (a pollutant from cigarettes, cars, and other industrial refineries). Although its high reactivity makes it applicable in a lot of areas, what I’ll be talking about is its ability to synthesize GREATNESS.


Nitric Oxide in the human body triggers vasodilation, wherein smooth muscle tissue relaxes, widening blood vessels for better blood flow. This means 2 things:

1) The icky, icky veins you see on weight-lifters? Say hello to yours.

2) Nutrients and oxygen come with better blood flow, so do muscle pumps and muscle recovery.

Not only does it also induce vasodilation, but it also serves as a neurotransmitter in redox signaling in the stomach, which means this sonofagun keeps your digestive system healthy, too!

Anyhoo, a bunch of supplement companies use nitric oxide as a dietary and bodybuilding supplement, simply known as NO. I have personally tried 3 different kinds, Juggernaut by Infinite Labs, SuperPump250 by Gaspari Nutrition, and N.O.-Explode by BSN.

My Juggernaut sampler was in “Pink Lemonade” flavour. I didn’t really feel an extra buzz, although I did have bigger strength gains and I loved the taste. Superpump250 was in orange flavour. Pretty basic, tasted like orange juice, but had a weird reaction from my stomach IN THE MIDDLE of my workout. What the…?!? But for N.O.-Xplode, I bought a container of Lemon Lime and fell in love with it. It has a fizzy taste to it, something that might not be up your tree right at the beginning, but the buzz is AMAZING. You immediately feel the caffeine seeping through your veins and into your physical shakey-ness right after consumption, and after 20-30mins, you feel so good that you’ll be ready to lift heavy immediately (although we intermediate bodybuilders know a good warm-up serves for a good workout, eh?).

Powdered dynamite.

Powdered dynamite.

Ok, obviously I’m biased. But that’s just because I actually got results! I’m on my 2nd container of N.O.-Explode, and it’s actually tasty this time (grape). If you’re not planning on taking Nitric pills, I suggest going for a blend like N.O.-Explod, or any other NO formula out there, since it’s infused with nutrients that also help build muscle once vasodilation’s started.

Yep, the same stuff that reacts in the atmosphere to give us acid rain makes you pump harder and grow bigger. Who knew? Well, apparently the muscle-heads did, and nobody bothered to ask ’em. And if you can’t ask ’em, join ’em.

Laterz skaterz.
