Pumps Like Thunder!!! Lightning Bolt Vascularity!!!

At last, the final review from my recently completed log.

Thunderbolt is Antaeus Lab's new Nitric Oxide product designed to give you outstanding pumps, reduce fatigue, and improve muscle circulation-nutrient delivery.

So does it work? Well, allow me to delve into my experience with this interesting product...

Taste (N/A): The caps are average sized, easy to swallow, and tasteless. The only thing I would note here is that there is a slightly odd aroma that comes from the bottle. The aroma is not overpowering at all nor is it horrendous, just not something you'd expect.


Profile: Thunderbolt contains four ingredients including....

L-Arginine Butyrate 1,500 mg **
S-Nitrosoglutathione 10 mg **
Kallidinogenase 175 IU **
Copper (as Copper L-Asparate) 1 mg **

Aside of the copper, the three other ingredients I had actually never heard of before including this particular form of arginine. From my research, this is what I've gathered about these particular ingredients as following.


L-Arginine Butyrate: This form of arginine is said to activate the nitric oxide pathway and act as an inhibitor to an enzyme known as histone deacetylase. Histone deacetylase is actually of class of enzymes invovled in DNA structuring. While these enzymes o have some normal roles in the body, these enzymes have been linked to both cancer and neuro-degenerative diseases. Inhibiting these enzymes is said to be an effective preventative measure.

-In the context of bodybuilding, inhibition of these enzymes allows for the increased up-regulation of the activin-binding protein follistatin. Follistatin has been demonstrated in some studies to inhibit the activity of myostatin, a negative regulator of muscular growth. In essence, increased follistatin can potentially encourage increased muscular hypertrophy through myostatin inhibition and increased cellular proliferation.

S-Nitrosoglutathione (GSNO): This compound is said to mediate the cellular signalling effects of nitric oxide and is also a bioavailable source of nitric oxide in general. GSNO's mechanism of action is quite complex. To summarize it to the best of my knowledge, in addition to providing a source of NO itself, it also serves to protect the NO molecule's moiety. Moiety is a term used to describe a particular chemical structure's functional group. By protecting these functional groups, NO molecules are able to remain more bio-available and exhibit their actions more efficiently. GSNO has also been shown to have neuroprotective and anti-oxidant properties. The addition of copper is believed to compliment GSNO's benefits.


Kallidinogenase: This is a naturally occurring human enzyme that also acts as a peripheral vasodialator agent. Its mechanism of action includes its effects on a receptor called the Bradykinin B2 receptor. Activation of this receptor increases blood flow to both muscles and vital organs including the brain. This receptor also mediates anabolic activity via gene expression. Kallidigenase itself also converts into bradykinin, which is involved in glucose uptake and blood circulation.

Talk about a science lesson....lol


Usage: The use of Thunderbolt is very simple. Pop three caps 25 minutes before your workout and your good to go. Antaeus labs notes that you can take this a pre-workout, but I wasn't using a PWO at the time because I wanted to assess thunderbolt's benefits independently.


Effectiveness (9): Oh man, this stuff was absolutely pumpalicious!!! The pumps and vascularity I got from Thunderbolt alone were astounding. Within one week on, I noticed incredible muscle fullness and a good reduction in fatigue as well. During my high volume supersets is when the pump was most substantial. In terms of vascularity, I noticed plenty of veins popping out of my arms, some on my chest and shoulders, neck, and a good amount on my legs as well. I looked like one of those demo mannequins you see in a phlebotomy training school. Once my log with condense and slinshot is complete and after Ramadan, I am going to try thunderbolt again this time with a pre-workout. In closing, thunderbolt gets the job done.

As a side note, I gave it a 9 as opposed to a 10 because, thunderbolt is only the second primary standalone NO supplement that I've used next to Allmax's hemagnovol. With all of the NO pills out there, I think there is still plenty of room for comparisons.


Side effects: The only side effect from this was an increase in urination. The ingredients in thunderbolt were noted to have diuretic effects. Therefore, ensure you keep your fluid intake high with electrolytes to prevent dehydration.


Value (9): The average price I've found for Thunderbolt is 35-38 dollars. This price can be even lower with the regular discount codes we here at SR.com get from website sponsorship. For the results and efficacy thunderbolt gives, this price is pretty fair.


Overall (9): Thunderbolt gets a solid 9 overall. I would've given it a 10, but as I stated, I lack experience with standalone NO products, so more comparisons can be made with future experience. Other than this, thunderbolt will give you outstanding pumps and definitive vascularity when you train intensely and diet properly. The last thing I will say is....

GRAB A BOTTLE AND ENTER THE STORM ARMED WITH THUNDERBOLT!!!

WARMACHINE OUT!!!
Pros:
Cons:
  • Incredible Pumps
  • Superb Vascularity
  • Increased Energy
  • Good Value
  • Pills Have An Odd Aroma

Stacking this with Alphamine
Posted Posted 21 hours ago

Is Lean Xtreme with Alphamine a good stack? What about LXT, Alphamine and Alpha or Hyper T2 ? will that be too much?, the only concern will be the high yohimbe dose

I'd say your best bet would be Alphamine, Hyper t2, an lean xtreme. These three supplements would compliment each other best as alphamine is a thermo, hyper t2 is a thyroid activity enhancer, and lean xtreme is more geared towards blocking cortisol.

Technically you could also use alpha t2, but hyper t2 seems to have the more favorable feedback.

This is used as recovery supplement. You should take this with plenty of water post-workout. However, There are much better and cheaper options than this, just shop around a bit.

Follow Brooklyn's advice and use only one scoop because at full dose this stuff will put you in a sugar high that will make Wilford Brimley's feet tingle from a miles away.

DIABEETUS....

Also, as chichi said, there are cheaper alternatives such as straight up creapure (creatine mono) are a much cheaper and equally effective alternative.

Is you can return this, do so and grab yourself a tub of some pure creatine mono.

P6 help with lean mass and get rid of body fat
Posted Posted April 17, 2014, 5:48 am

I had back surgery a year ago. I went from 220 lbs 12% BMI to almost 270 LBS and about 35% BMI. Needless to say it has been long road of recovery. Is this a good product, a long with NO3 to help me get and edge on getting my body back? I just started last week with the P6 and two days ago with the NO3. My eating is very clean now, and I box and use the elliptical and treadmill for my heavy cardio days because I can't run yet.

Well, seeing that you already purchased the P6 and NO3 you really don't have a choice now lol. P6 is a lackluster and more expensive test booster and I think you would be better off with some Testogen by RCSS or EndoSurge Turbo by BPS. NO3 is a nitric oxide booster that is not really what you should be spending your money on at this point IMO. Looks like you are eating well and training correctly for what you can do. If you are looking to cut bodyfat, I would recommend a fat burner. Alphamine by PES and Pro Xanthine by Finaflex are very good options to add in there and will no doubt help you out. Others will chime in but this is my short answer. Good luck to you and great to see you recovering from the surgery. Stay consistent and stay focused on your goals. Have long term goals but short term goals will help keep you motivated and help track your progression.

Agreed with Brent on all key points...

Train hard within your known levels, keep diet clean and consistent, and when it comes to supps, next time invest in a more effective test booster like the ones mentioned by Brent.

Alphamine and Pro-xanthine are both solid choices for fat burners, but you could also look into Lecheek Nutrition's Ripped c0cktail, which I believe is still available at bodybuilding.com.

Lastly, a whey isolate like RCSS's Iso-tropic max may help as well if you're willing to spend a little extra.
