Nitro Pump X Reviews: I work in a gym so when a hear of a new product like Nitro Pump X I must review it in order to be able to give our regulars a better idea of what it is before they order. On a daily basis I have a number of questions to answer regarding different supplements on the market and many times members of the gym ask for a recommendation to help them improve their performance and results. I try and get as much information on every new product on the market in order to always have the right answers for them, with that said, I thought I’d share my findings here as well.
I first read about Nitro Pump X in an email. I get regular updates to the newest products on the market. I immediately visited the official website and since it’s hard to find similar websites that ship to Australia I thought that this may be a great product and company to research as it’s catered for us. Initially looking at the website it didn’t really show much difference from other supplement websites that I’ve visited and reviewed in the past. There seems to be very little information about the product and considering the numerous scams on the market today it’s important to always dig deep and find out as much as possible on the company and product before ordering.
Remember that supplements are not regulated by the Food and Drug Administration which means that regardless what they claim there is no guarantee. Safety and effectiveness vary and though it seems they are promising plenty of benefits on sites like these the results may be quite different, not to mention the numerous possible side effects they fail to mention.
What is Nitro Pump X?
One thing I like to do is break down the website and the information provided all the while providing additional external information that is factual for comparison.
Of course upon opening the website you are greeted with the ultra muscular guy you wish you could become with this supplement and the order form. You are also provided with the following benefits:
- Gain strength and power
- Train harder and longer
- Boost energy levels
- Build lean muscle
- Burn more fat
These are all great but every supplement claiming to boost NO2 has the same benefits. Nothing extraordinary here and nothing that can be proven unless I review the ingredients.
What the official website claims is that you will get maximum muscle gains from this supplement. You will get a hardcore nitric oxide power boost which will help increase blood flow to the body and thus get more nutrients to the muscles. Thus your body will train better and improve vascular pump. These are all well known facts of nitric oxide but does this supplement really offer that?
The Nitro Pump X website claims that this product has been a secret of pro athletes all this time and it is just now being exposed. Another great claim made by every other similar product website on the market today. You will be able to build amazing muscles resulting in a buff and refined body. One good thing is that the supplement is all herbal and is a combination of proprietary ingredients that will help enhance performance better than any other supplement on the market. That last part was a bit too much I think.
It was rather strange that they decided to discuss the ingredients however, throughout the entire text there was no real information about what ingredients are found in the supplement. Simply the way Nitric Oxide works. This is something that many of us already know if we are looking for an NO2 boost. They do discuss Arginine in this text which is good as it is a major part of the ingredients found in the product but they just go onto list the numerous health problems it is used to treat, many of which are not confirmed.
Overall the information I found in the official website was rather uninteresting and unimportant. They barely discussed the product, which, if it was so great they would have had something to say about it. The very last paragraph in the homepage of the website finally discusses that Nitro Pump X is a super hemodilator that is hyper-enhancing. This means that it helps boost recovery speed all the while boosting NO levels, boosts energy, increases strength and muscle pump, all the while giving you more endurance, load capacity, and power output. Great, still nothing all too different or convincing if you ask me.
Just below this there is yet another list of benefits, which if you look at the top it’s just a copy of the same. Personally, their homepage just didn’t do it for me information-wise. There could have been a lot more information added about the product itself, how they came to the proprietary blend, why it’s better, tests, and ingredient information. At the very bottom of the page in the footer in small letters where the Terms & Conditions are I did find an Ingredients link.
Fortunately they were kind enough to offer some ingredients information. As mentioned above there is a link “Ingredients” at the bottom of the page, which you really have to look for to see. When you click it a popup window comes up with a very simple list of the ingredients found and an image of the Supplement Facts. This is actually the only information I need in order to determine if a product is quality. The company quality on the other hand is far more difficult to decide.
Ingredients of Nitro Pump X:
Proprietary Blend 800mg
L-Arginine Alpha Ketogluterate 2-1 – this ingredient has a variety of uses, some confirmed other somewhat sketchy. It may be effective in preventing muscle breakdown but there is insufficient evidence for it actually boosting athletic performance. The good thing is that it is considered safe and there are no serious side effects.
L-Arginine – a popular ingredient in numerous supplements for building muscles this ingredient is actually possibly effective to help with erectile dysfunction but there is still insufficient evidence for its ability to boost athletic performance. It also has a number of possible side effects including abdominal pain, bloating. Allergies, blood abnormalities, gout, diarrhoea, airway inflammation, low blood pressure, and worsening of asthma.
L-Arginine Monohydrochloride – actually, this particular ingredient was a more difficult one to research. Though I found several medical papers on it or including it no consistent information about its application or possible side effects.
L-Citrulline 5 mg – though there are some benefits and uses of this ingredient there is actually insufficient evidence for its effectiveness in exercise performance and may even be ineffective as numerous researches have been done. Actually, rather than improving your performance this ingredient may make you more exhausted during and after a workout. Though safe and there are no serious side effects it’s simply ineffective.
Dipotassium Phosphate 4 mg – Aside from correcting low blood phosphate levels there are no uses of this ingredient that may show signs of improving athletic performance or helping you build muscles. It is actually listed as an ineffective ingredient to improve aerobic exercise and even long term use could cause an upset of the phosphate and other chemicals balance in your body. Possible side effects include irritation of the digestive tracts and may cause diarrhoea, constipation, upset stomach, and more.
Other Ingredients: Gelatine, Decalcium Phosphate (may cause joint and muscle pain, muscle weakness, itching, and red eyes), Magnesium Stearate (though used widely in supplements it is considered a toxin), and Microcrystalline Stearate.
Just a quick scan over these ingredients leads me to believe that this supplement may not be effective. The only hope is in the proprietary blend as it has the highest possibility of perhaps helping you boost NO and improve strength while boosting athletic performance. Aside from that I see no other effective ingredients.
Recommendations of Nitro Pump X?
Yes, I went out and spent A$82.03 for the experiment, of course, funded by my gym. I am their personal guinea pig and before anyone working at the gym recommends any product it must first be tried out. I got it about 4 days after ordering online and started taking it almost immediately. I took my first capsule that morning before heading to the gym. I can’t say I had any serious change in my workout or in the results afterwards, though this is expected. It was followed by the second capsule before my next workout in the evening. Again, no change.
Over the next few days I didn’t see any real results except for a slight boost in energy. One thing I did notice though was my upset stomach. In general I have problems with taking some supplements as my stomach does not go well with all ingredients. With some nausea and a few runs to the bathroom I managed to get through the week. Though quite uneventful except for my side effects starting my second week the side effects started to subside and I started experiencing a bit more energy and more boost in my performance. By the 3rd week though my side effects returned and I decided to stop taking the supplement. It is important to remember that not all natural supplements sit well with everyone and side effects are possible regardless what some official websites may say.
The official website did seem like a scam and though I was very happy with their order options the lack of information and badly written homepage leads me to believe that it is one of many made to just take orders and perhaps will over time it will disappear like the rest, along with our credit card information. I am sceptical as to the quality of the official website or the company. So far we have not experienced any secret charges to the credit card we ordered with but just knowing that they have it worries me. I’ll update if anything comes up.
On the other hand the product seemed to have positive effects. Will they be as they claim over a longer period of time or just slight improvements? You will have to try for yourself as my stomach couldn’t handle it. I do think though that the official Nitro Pump X website is a scam and I would recommend looking further into it before ordering and making sure it can be trusted.
Where and How to Buy Nitro Pump X?
Though I am still quite unsure if this product will even work I still think that it’s worth the try. After all, not everything you read online is necessarily true. Unless you try it there is no way to really know. With that said they have made purchase very easy.
- 5 Bottles – A$31.80 per bottle – A$159
- 3 Bottles – A$36.33 per bottle – A$109
- 1 Bottle – A$69.94 plus A$12.09 Shipping and Handling – A$82.03
One thing that I admit really impressed me with this website is that there are no scams. There are no secret charges, there are no secret terms, simply order and that’s it. Today the biggest scam on most supplement websites is that they automatically sign you up for an auto ship program if you do not cancel the trial and start being charged every month for a product you may not even like. With that said, I was very impressed with their onetime charge policy. On the other hand their prices did scare me a bit. I did notice in their terms though that you can return the product within 30 days, one thing they did fail to mention though was whether it can be opened or if it is only if it is in its original form without being opened. It would have been nice to know but unfortunately I could not find the answer to this.
