This is my second review on here, so I am still getting the hang of this, and I hope I do not leave any unanswered questions. I'm not real savvy on all the effects on ingredients and ratios so again, as in my last post, I will simply state personal experiences and leave the sceinces of this to the label. allstarhealt.com will show you the label with ingredients on their product page if you are interested.
First off, I must say this is a totally awesome product. I was given a trial at "GNC" and have been hooked every since. I am aware every person's body reacts to supplements different. But NS was dead on for me. I have treid Yok3D, nutrishop's NO powders, and many other NO products. This one by far has exceeded my expectations. I have been using NO supplements with PWO for 2-3 years and again still my favorite.
I am a little behind here, becuase I am on probably my 8-9th bottle of this. So in my PWO regimen this has been a concrete block for me. I simply take a GNC (very overpriced) Strength Packs, and hour and half later I take C4 (2 scoops, and 2 caps of NanoStim)30-35 minutes prior to work out. I have noticed I do get more of a second wind and better results from NanoStim if I take it about 15-20 minutes before the C4. I will swap up every so often taken them together or a bit apart. I believe it takes a bit longer than the PWO to kick in full gear.
Anyhow, I wanted to write this for regular Joes out there trying to bust their butt to make gains and reach their goals with supplements of their choice. I always research the boards prior to a new purchase, and surely this or the others may help someone as the others have me in the past.
Effectiveness, I will give this product a 9/10 merely due to the fact nothing is perfect. There's always room to improve. But thats about all I can really say. This product seems to give me a good boost even after the C4 has worn off. Especially the first few months of taking this. One will become acustomed to the effects after a few months but they still work like day one, just a bit more minimal on the extended boost. I undoubtably noticed vascularity in places I never knew could be vascular. Especially on leg day! I hate leg day, but we all do and fight through it. I can see noticeable vascularity on my quads around the knees and inside, my lower abs, calves, and shin area. This was totally new to me, as I have never seen this before. I didn't cahnge my workout from prior supps and know this is what is causing it. I love it. Not to mention the visibility thats unmistakeable in my neck, traps, chest, and biceps. If it is arms day (BI/TRI/Forearms) once I get home I struggle to take my shirt off to change clothes etc. My arms feel so full as if theyre going to burst and will not bend and move as good, due to the pump. The pump is completely awesome to me! I'm not really a "veiny" person and this has totally done the trick for me. I can work out for 1-2 hours til exhaustion, go home and still feel like cleaning house and doing anything needing done. The focus is a whole another animal and is excellent. I do recommend taking 4-6 days a week, taking a day or so off to lose temporary tolerance, and pick back up again. This helps maximize the "new supp" feeling. This is the only NO supplement Ive mixed with a PWO that didn't cause me to crash or have the dreaded temporary malfuntion of the man tools (STIM D___). I will also add however; some may tolerate this better at the maximum doseage of 4 caps a day, but when doing so, I seemed to have heartburn and feel a bit lethargic. I recommend starting with two and maybe trying four when you adjust.
Value: Assuming all will not use overpriced sources such as GNC, value is a 7/10. When taking 2 caps with a PWO you get a 50 day supply. I always purchase from allstarhealth.com and they fluctate for some odd reason but I've paid 22.49-25.89 a bottle never more. Not bad pricing for 50 servings, but as always, we wouldn't mind a bit cheaper. Afterall not only do we work for results, we work to buy these results $$$.
Side Effects: None negative. I work out at 1530-1700 daily and still at 2300 hours I still feel like I could cook a 5 course meal. No crash, no burn, no negatives with me here.
While taking this product my work out routine has been standard I haven't tried anything different other than pushing a little more from natural development, so after 8 or so bottles I say it's safe to say there are no varaibles to question it's effectiveness mixing with PWO.
Overall: 9/10. I haven't found anything I don't like about this product. Yes it's musceltech and they are notoriously known for junk and cheap supps. But I feel they are gaining back an edge with their new line of products. It seems they are kind of stepping out from the walmart shadows and really trying to catch on here. Seeing muscletech on the trial that first got me started was a turn off, but I was out of YOK3D and said WTH, I'll give it a shot it's free. Even with the somewhat placebo effect psychologically thinking this crap will never work its just a rip off, and assuming before I even used it, it's a waste, I was totally shocked. Haven't tried a single NO product since. I will continue using this product until something better comes along, but it will be hard convincing me otherwise to get me to try it.
I would recommend at least trying it. I gave my friend 10 caps of it to try and he experienced less positive (minimal) effects from it. As I stated, everyone reacts different, but this personally has been a long standing favorite of mine.
