Getting results from Nitric Oxide products is a simple matter of how much of the formula your body can absorb and utilize. Tablets, regular capsules and powders are all known as slow and less effective. It takes your body a longer time to break down those preparations. Worse yet, part of the active ingredients may not be used at all. You get some results but nowhere near as good as they truly could be. Using our modern, fast-absorbing liquid capsule technology eliminates these roadblocks. Pre-dissolved and already liquefied Nitric Oxide boosting molecules rapidly enter your blood stream intact and are ready for action.
Through the above described process NIOX quickly shuttles several thousand milligrams of Nitric Oxide generating Arginine Ethyl Ester into your bloodstream. Fortified with a precise ratio of Nitric Oxide supporting compounds such as R+Lipoic Acid, real Beta Alanine, high potency Rutaecarpine and L-Norvaline, results come rapidly. NIOX supports your drive for bigger, fuller and rounder muscles covered with road-map veins.
You take NIOX and within minutes it does what you want it to do: Your body starts absorbing it. This allows for more precise timing. Take NIOX before you start working out and its already liquefied Nitric Oxide boosting molecules will quickly go to work. More blood, nutrients and oxygen are being pushed into your muscles. Combined with high-intensity resistance training the ensuing muscle pump, blood engorged vascularity and muscle fullness will be dramatic.
Arginine is a conditionally essential amino acid that serves as a pre-cursor for nitric oxide (NO). Boosting nitric oxide levels leads to vasodilation, augmenting the delivery of nutrients to working muscles. In addition, arginine supplementation amplifies growth hormone levels, further supporting the potential for hypertrophy. Arginine has demonstrated enhancements in strength gains while preventing catabolic effects and its marked potential to promote muscle protein synthesis. L-Arginine Ethyl Ester Dichloride is a more biologically active form of arginine. Many experts believe that it is superior to Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate and most other arginine forms.
Lipoic acid enhances glucose uptake by relocating GLUT4 (glucose transporter) adjacent to plasma membrane, optimal for providing energy with high intensity exercise. Furthermore, nutrient delivery to working muscles is enhanced not only by improving glucose uptake but also by increasing nitric oxide (NO) resulting in vasodilation with lipoic acid supplementation. When in “R” form, lipoic acid is more biologically active than its synthetic form with superior absorption.
Supplementation with beta-alanine plays a beneficial role with high intensity sports and exercise where lactic acid accumulates considerably in working muscles. Upon entering the muscle cell, beta-alanine is responsible for carnosine synthesis as the rate-limiting substrate. A higher intramuscular level of carnosine is associated with an enhanced capacity to buffer hydrogen ions, delaying fatigue and thus, reducing the potentially inhibiting decrease in pH that hinders exercise performance. Beta-alanine supplementation has demonstrated significant increases in carnosine levels of up to 60%. Furthermore, work volume at high intensities, lean body mass and strength experience substantial increases as a result of beta-alanine supplementation.
Rutaecarpine helps to stimulate nitric oxide release, augmenting the delivery of nutrients to working muscles. Anti-inflammatory effects have also been demonstrated as a result of rutaecarpine supplementation by inhibiting COX-2 activity, enhancing the recovery process from strenuous workouts.
Norvaline is a direct inhibitor of arginase, an enzyme that hinders nitric oxide production in the body. By inhibiting arginase, nitric oxide levels have the potential to increase, resulting in enhanced vasodilation. By combining arginine with L-norvaline, NIOX augments the capacity to utilize arginine for boosting nitric oxide levels without hindrance from arginase.
Anaerobic exercise drains phosphate from your muscles into your blood. So the need for phosphate from food increases. Supplemental Calcium Phosphate appears to have three beneficial effects – it buffers muscle acid, helps raise the level of the enzyme that unloads oxygen into muscle, and improves the production and use of glycogen for fuel.
Glycerol has the ability to optimize hydration levels during exercise and help with thermoregulation during long, intense workouts in the heat. Whether you’re working out in the heat or not, intense workouts will increase body temperature and require adequate hydration. Fortunately, glycerol supplementation can delay dehydration and heat stress components, ensuring optimal performance in the weight room.

How many caps should be taken a day?
Know the answer? Answer this question
For the original version of Niox (Blue and Silver bottle) is recommended to be taken 1 serving (4-8 capsules depending on bodyweight) on an empty stomach 30 minutes prior to your workout. For even quicker recovery, we suggest taking two servings daily. 1 serving prior to a meal and 1 serving prior to your workout.For our new version in the black and red label as show in the picture on our product page, the serving size has been reduced to 3 capsules per serving.
I go for morning workout at 8am, so if i take niox 4 capsules on an empty stomach, will it be okay for me to train just with 4 niox capsules in my stomach.
Yes, Niox is best taken on an empty stomach and would be recommended to be taken in the morning prior to your workout. However, if your goal is to build muscle, I would suggest consuming either a small meal or juice prior to your workout or sipping on Defy to help prevent muscle breakdown when training.
I’m currently taking jack3d is it.ok to stack these?
Yes, Niox does not contain any stimulants so there is no issue taking it with a perworkout product.
How long can you keep taking this product
Niox can be taken continuously without cycling.
How will Niox affect blood pressure? Will it affect blood pressure? And in what way will it affect blood pressure?
Niox contains Arginine which is a Nitric Oxide precursor. An increase in Nitric Oxide causes blood vessels to relax and dilate, which may help to lower blood pressure.
Can NiOX be used with LIPO 6 or any of the other fat burners?
Absolutely, there is no issue stacking Niox with any of our Lipo-6 formulas.
Can you take it before and after your workout or is it just best to take once
Niox is best taken 1 serving (4-5 capsules) on an empty stomach 30 minutes prior to your workout.
Can woman take this product?
Yes, Niox is non-hormonal and is safe and effective to be taken by both men and women.
Is it safe for people under 18?
Yes, Niox is considered to be a safe supplement, as long as you are a healthy individual and take the product as directed, you shouldn’t have any issues. However, if you are under 18, we have to recommend getting permission from your parent/guardian prior to taking this or any dietary supplement.
should i take it before workout or after?and with what should i take it
Niox is recommended to be taken on an empty stomach 30 minutes prior to your workout. It can be taken with water or a preworkout product like HemoRage UC.

Reviews about Nutrex Research NIOX:
I take Niox as directed prior to my workouts, whether they be strength or cardio. It visibly increases the vascularity of my muscles and 'opens me up.' I feel engerized because more oxygen is being delivered to my muscles. Like all Nutrex products, I keep coming back to Niox because it really works. Niox makes it easy to get a good 'pump' going, and seems to increase my aerobic threshold, as well. I would recommend Niox, or any other Nutrex product, to anyone serious about their fitness without reservations.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Competitive Athlete
I have been taking this product every day for about 2 weeks. The pump you get on the first day of taking it is the same everyday. The taste is not very good but only having to take it once a day you don't notice it after a few days.
Why use anything else, just why?

Using the product directly as required have me the most insaine pumps with the most ridiculous veins I have ever seen. By far the best product in its category.
About Me Gym 4-5 Days A Week
Once again Nutrex made an awesome product!!! I take the Niox about 30 minutes before my workout and get a great pump during my workout!! I also take it non training days as well, gives my a boost of energy and I feel great all day. I have told and recommended this to some of my friends and would recommend this to anyone looking for a great pump in there workout. It's very easy to take. The only bad thing I noticed was a little bit of an after taste, but it goes in a minute or two after taking it.

I don't use this quite as directed...
I've never had a problem getting a "pump" without any extra nitric. It is true that this seems to improve blood flow through vasodialation. My biggest use for this was 30-60 minutes before a rugby game. I used it to pump my muscles, especially quads with blood and all the goodies that come with it (oxygen, glucose, aminos, etc...). This allowed me to have more explosive out of the gate performance as well as longer duration performance in the match. Worked great for rugby.
After using it here I decided to try something else... theoretically it would indiscriminately dialate blood vessels. Bearing that in mind I took it before an exam. Worked great! Felt more alert throughout the entire exam.
And yes, I did try it for standard power lifting workout... didn't feel anything from it. Probably because I work to a pump anyways.
Merchant response: Thank you for the review!

I have been using Niox for about three weeks now, the product did not do as much as it promised. I was hoping to get some great pumps but that was not the case, it was a very mild Nitric Oxidizer,but on the flip side i did notice that over a few weeks i have become more vasculine and my veins are showing up more. I did not like having to take so many capsules daily, it is difficult especially when you are busy, one capsule would be very convenient. Overall Niox wasn't bad, i just wouldn't brag about it to my friends but i was happy with increase in muscle mass. If there is a new Niox formula that gives off strong pumps i would most definitely recommend it. Thanks for the oppurtunity to let me use this product!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: Thank you for your review! Niox has been an office favorite here at Nutrex and is one product that everyone uses consistently. Unfortunately it would not be possible to fit the 4 grams of compounds and close to 3 grams of Arginine Ethyl Ester Dichloride in one capsule. This would have to be a capsule size way too big for anyone to swallow and if we reduced the amount of capsules per serving then you would not be able to receive the preferred dose of around 3 grams of Arginine per serving. One important factor to remember is that Niox is a vaso-dilator. The means that it's number one effect should be to increase blood flow by dilating blood vessles. This is why you noticed an increase in vascularity. Now when you increase blood flow you should also be able to increase your pump. If not, then you may have low glycogen levels. This is stored carbohydrates in the muscle which is derived from the carbs that you eat. If you have low or depleted glycogen levels it is very difficult to achieve a good pump. Other things that help with this is creatine as well as high molecular weight carbohydrates. Our Volu-Gro for instance is technically a post workout but I like to take one scoop before my workout. This combined with the Niox is an AMAZING pump! You may want to try sometime!

About Me 300 Pounder, Border Patrolmen, D1aa Football Player, High Tolerance
I've lifted hard as hell for 10 years now and at the end of career playing football I began to lose that feeling of getting a pump I was still strong as hell and killing it in the weight room but I just lost that pump... So tried Nitrix, NO red or whatever, Animals Pump, and C3 and no real results. But! Niox did it I'm addicted to it now. It took 2 days to see the full results but it's legit. I couldnt take off my shirt after doing shoulders the swell I got stayed I even noticed it at work my veins are popping out crazier than ever. I take 5 at a time 4 or 5 times a day but I'll take 8 or 10 before a workout... I have a huge tolerance. But I love this product I hate it if I miss a dose... Only bad side affect is sometimes you'll burp up a tab and they taste horrible

About Me Dedicated lifter
So basically I tried this product not knowing what to expect. I had never taken a NO product before, and was kind of skeptical. I took the product around 25 minutes before my workout, and did notice a slightly higher level of vascularity. After my workout my veins were PUMPED. I usually get pretty vascular but this was different. I also felt like the product allowed my muscles to feel more warmed up throughout the workout. I also workout with a sweatshirt on and all of my joints and muscles felt great. The smell is a little weird, but I just wouldn't think about it and down the pills! All of my workouts are in a fasted state, and I noticed the day after each workout I was not nearly as sore, even though I was pushing just as hard as before.
