As with all supplementation, please consult your physician first (especially if you have a medical condition). Do not use if you are pregnant / lactating, under the age of 18 or sensitive to caffeine. Remember that an adequate state of hydration must be maintained when using this product. Have at least 8 - 12 large glasses of water per day. Taking more than the recommended dose will not improve results and may cause adverse reactions. Large amounts of beta-alanine may cause parasthesia (pins and needles). Research suggests that this sensation is caused by beta-alanine binding to nerve receptors, and it is thought to generally resolve on its own after about hours. The sensation may subside after a few weeks of continuous use. If not, discontinue use of this product. Do not exceed the recommended daily intake. For best results an appropriate muscle building eating and training programme should be followed.
The Nitrox Pump is made up of several ingredients that have been selected as they have been associated with increased production of nitric oxide in the muscles. Nitric oxide synthases (NOS) are enzymes that convert Arginine and citrulline to nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is a key biological messenger, playing a role in a variety of biological processes. It is known as a vasodilator which enhances blood flow in the body which could in theory increase the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to exercising muscle. This is associated with enhanced muscle pumps during exercise. A low level of nitric oxide is associated with physical fatigue.
Anabolic steroids are orally-ingested, synthetic (man-made) drugs that act like testosterone. They cause growth and development of male sexual organs, secondary sex characteristics, and increases in muscle size and strength. They are used for treating delayed puberty in boys, anemia , low muscle mass due to AIDs or HIV , breast cancer , and for replacing testosterone in men with low testosterone levels . Anabolic steroids often are abused by athletes for increasing muscle mass and performance. Non-athletes and non-competitive body builders also abuse anabolic steroids for cosmetic reasons.
