If you want to know what nitric oxide supplements are, how they work, and if they can help you gain strength and muscle faster, then you want to listen to this episode.

Nitric oxide supplements hit the bodybuilding scene about a decade ago, and they hit the ground running.

The first one to make waves was called “NO2.”

It became an overnight bestseller, and was quickly followed by a pile of “me too” products, which only served to further ratchet up the nitric oxide hype.

People were saying it’s the next creatine. A natural and safe alternative to steroids, even.

It could help you gain muscle and strength faster, we were told, as well as significantly improve blood flow, which would give you bulging biceps and, uh, other bulgy things. ?

How true is all of this, though?

Do nitric oxide supplements really work, or are they just a waste of money, like most bodybuilding supplements?

Well, you’re going to find out in this episode.

We’re going to look at what nitric oxide is, what these supplements are comprised of, what science has to say about their effectiveness, and more.

Let’s get started.
