Nitro XL Pre-Workout Supplement Review


Nitro XL Pre-Workout Supplement Review
$59.95


No2 boosters are NOT just for men....women can take them too!  It seems that many believe (I did too) that taking a pre-workout supplement like L-Arginine is a man's supplement.  However, after reading several articles about L-Arginine and its heart and blood flow benefits, I realized that women can take it too.  I decided to read the back of one of my pre-workout powders and low and behold...it contained L-Arginine.  So after squashing the stigma, I decided to try NITRO XL and share my experience.  

Let me start with a basic definition of L-arginine.  It is a chemical building block called “an amino acid.” It is obtained from food and is necessary for the body to make proteins. L-arginine is found in red meat, poultry, fish, and dairy products. 

L-arginine is converted in the body into a chemical called nitric oxide. Nitric oxide causes blood vessels to open wider for improved blood flow. L-arginine also stimulates the release of growth hormone, insulin, and other substances in the body.

This amino acid helps build muscle mass, enhance immune function, improve blood pressure, increase memory, and speed wound healing.  Arginine-derived nitric oxide has also been found to play a supporting role in the cardiovascular, immune, and nervous systems and has been validated by hundreds of studies.  Reading through articles after googling L-arginine, I was convinced it is an amino acid that I needed to add to my pre-workout routine.  Not only is Arginine beneficial for working out, it has several other benefits:

L-Arginine is essential to several systems in the body. Among its many roles, L-Arginine:

  • Is a precursor of nitric oxide (NO)
  • Promotes circulation resulting in improved blood flow
  • Stimulates the release of growth hormone
  • Improves immune function
  • Reduces healing time of injuries
  • Plays a role in the formation of bone and tendons
  • Increases muscle mass, while reducing body fat
  • Supports male fertility, improving sperm production and motility
  • Reduces risk of blood clots and stroke
  • Supports normal blood pressure
  • Improves vascular function for patients with angina
  • Helps recovery after heart attack
  • Helps prevent and treat cardiovascular disease
  • Helps reduce growth of cancerous tumors



Now that I have explained what L-arginine is, and its benefits, lets talk about NITRO XL.  This supplement contains a proprietary blend (750mg) (1 capsules) of L-Arginine Alpha Ketoglutarate (A-AKG), L-Ornithine AKG, Arginine Ketooisocaproate, and L-Glutamine.  What is important about its ingredients is the sheer strength of the proprietary blend.  Most blends are not as potent or in order to reach the same potency, you have to take 6 capsules per serving 2 times a day.  That is 12 capsules a day!!  The suggested serving is 2 capsules, 2 times a day.  So....you can take 4 of these or 12 from the other brand.  

My Experience:

If you are still with me...and reading this...I want to share with you my journey with NITRO XL.  It has been almost one month and I have never felt better.  My workouts are intense...my reps have increased and my cardio workouts are longer.  I can run/cycle a greater distance and not feel exhausted.  Also, my recovery time has lessened. I used to take two days off in-between cardio and weightlifting, now I only take one day off in-between.  I think the best way to describe this supplement, I feel stronger during my workouts and not as tired afterward.  One thing to mention, I take two capsules 30 minutes before I work out.  I DO NOT feel a sudden rush of energy, but an even slow energy that lasts a few hours.  

Lastly, I wanted to take about the price.  This product is expensive and at $59.95 a bottle, it can seem pretty steep.  It comes out to about .50 cents a capsules for 120 capsules or $2.00 a day.  Now, I don't take these everyday, I only take them on my workout days.  This bottle of 120 capsules will last me about 2 months.
