L-arginine or NO2, wtf scam or something?
I just started lookin into this nitric oxide hype, and its main ingriedient is ARGININE
is L-Arginine suppose to accomplish the same effects like no2 but way cheaper than no2?
L-arginine for 50 1,000mg tabs is like 10$ a bottle of no2 or whatever brand is roughly about 30$
wtf is the different, is NO2 better product than regular use of L-Arginine? im confused in this bull****

L Arginine and something like A AKG work different. Plus NO products have other ingredients that help prolong the action and work as NO substrates.

NO2 stacked with creatine

Just buy L arginine
same stuff cheaper price

I think Im going to shoot myself.....Once again, NO2 works for increased pumps (better than arginine) and increased nutrient delivery. It will not add lbs of muscle, it is not a steroid . Any company claiming it will add a ton of mass, stay away from.

This study shows how insulin and NO interact. (BTW, NO boosters stimulate insulin)
Role of blood flow in the regulation of muscle glucose uptake.

Insulin vasodilates skeletal muscle vasculature via an endothelium-derived nitric oxide-dependent mechanism. Data suggests that insulin interacts directly with the endothelium to cause nitric oxide release. This insulin-mediated increase in muscle perfusion accounts for approximately 30% of insulin's overall action to stimulate muscle glucose uptake, suggesting a role for insulin and glucose delivery as a determinant of insulin action. Hindlimb perfusion experiments, where perfusion rate is fixed, suggest that changes in distribution of microcirculatory perfusion can modulate substrate uptake. The potential role of insulin to enhance flow through capillary networks that are efficient at nutrient transfer to tissue (nutritive flow) relative to non-nutritive flow is discussed.

I cant download pdf's on my coimputer, but a google search should pull up links for the pdf for this study:

I stack Glutamine, arganine, and creatine, and get the same results as i did with the NO2 ****. In fact i think i get better pumps in the gym. Its alot cheaper

Their are better NO products than just A AKG alone. A AKG alone isnt all that great. A AKG + Creatine + BCAA's+Carbs is very good.
