Nitrosigine ® is a novel form of arginine and silicon backed by clinical science that was recently presented at the 2014 Experimental Biology Scientific Meeting and also a highlight of the 2016 International Society of Sports Nutrition Annual Conference. In fact, Nitrosigine ® is clinically shown to increase nitric oxide levels (measured as salivary nitrites). What’s more, in the same human clinical trial, subjects had a significant increase in mean plasma arginine levels within one hour of their first dose. With more nitric oxide, your blood vessels will engorge with a rush of nutrient-rich blood, carrying oxygen, amino acids and naturally occurring anabolic compounds to your muscles.
In addition to its key musclebuilding ingredients, Nitro-Tech is the first protein to contain all three key free-form amino acids (alanine, glycine and taurine) and is designed to deliver essential amino acids and proteinogenic (protein building) amino acids that are quickly digested and absorbed by your bloodstream – aiding in muscle cell repair and growth and helping to make NITRO-TECH® the perfect choice for rapid post-workout amino acid delivery.
Alanine is the second-most widely used amino acid in protein synthesis, after leucine, and is the primary amino acid for the production of usable glucose during intense training. Experts believe that supplementing with alanine post-workout can help combat muscle breakdown and promote protein synthesis.
Glycine is an amino acid which has been noted to play a role in the formation of many other biological compounds in the body, such as proteins and creatine, and even supports cell volumization.
Taurine is the second-most abundant amino acid found in muscle and aids in cell volumization.
You should take protein and creatine as your key supplements or a Weight Gainer product if you want to gain maximum mass. Take a whey protein shake 2 to 3 times per day with one serving being just before your Halo immediately after training and take creatine monohydrate powder or a creatine tablet (like Creakic or Creadex). Start off taking 4 servings per day for the first 5 days and thereafter take 1 to 2 servings per day (2 on training days and 1 on non-training days). To gain mass at the fastest rate, you can either do the Nitro/Cell stack (Nitro 3 times per day and Cell-Tech twice on training days and once on non-training days - always take one serving of Nitro immediately, followed by Cell-Tech right after training) OR you can use a weight gainer like Mutant Mass (along with powdered creatine) or Mass-Tech or Muscle Fuel Anabolic (which already contain creatine). If your diet is good (high in calories and protein), go with the Nitro/Cell stack, if your diet isn't so good, go with one of the mass gainers - start off with 2 to 3 scoops twice daily and increase until you are gaining the desired amount of weight per week (1/2 to 2 kilos).
