NO2 Muscle Enhancing Hemodialator
Whenever I go to the gym and tell a friend that I've recently started the supplement, NO2, nobody knows what I'm talking about but I even mention Creatine, and that is well known as a standard for building muscle.
Could NO2 be the next Creatine? When Creatine was launched, it was expensive. But it worked. It was a huge craze at the gyms and most everybody wanted it. The reason they wanted it so much, is that it worked. It was legal and the side-effects, well so far, there aren't any (as long as you drink plenty of fluids). Since the launching of this successful product, there has never been anything that hit the market with the same enthusiasm.
NO2, according to research , "the first of an exciting new category of muscle-enhancers known as a hemodilators. NO2 has the unique ability to perpetually sustain the flow of muscle-building agents to skeletal muscle." Before I give my review, I'd like to share another quote of the benefits and claims. "By increasing nitric oxide production, NO2 increases your maximum contractile velocity - in all muscle types. The results are immediate and consequential, and include increasing your load capacity, boosting your power output, and quickening your muscle contraction."
When I first was asked to try this product, I was skeptical. I've been bodybuilding for 16 years now (mainly for general fitness not to get freaky huge), and I've tried a lot of supplements. The last time I was excited about a supplement was Creatine like most of the gym-rats. But I'm always willing to review something and try it for myself in hopes that maybe I'll find that gem and tell the rest of the world.
Taking 3 pills before breakfast, and another 3 one-half hour before lunch, I can honestly say that while I've noticed no gains in strength yet, my muscle do feel perpetually pumped. It's like I just came back from the gym but it lasts all day. While I cannot say the results are amazing, I can say the effects - both physical and psychological - are extraordinary.
As with any supplement, you need to drink plenty of water. NO2 does not have this specific requirement, but I've noticed that being properly hydrated has helped me keep that pump going all day. I've also seen some recommendations that taking NO2 with Creatine gives a complementary effect. To date, I have not tried this.
If you are looking for the next Creatine, NO2 could be it. I love the effects. Unfortunately like Creatine when it first came out, it's not cheap. But I've heard rumors that others will jump on this market and bring down the prices where the masses can afford it.

Body Part Isolation vs. Complex Movements in Strength Training - Build Real Muscle Instead of Fake!
