Nitramine Waste of Money

Nitramine works like a fatburner and not like a pre-workout Myokem put that preworkout formula in a pill and that will because it give really nice thermogenic effect but the use as a pre workout suck i used 1 scoop prodigy and 1 scoop nitramine to workout not a good pre workout but a very good fatburner

I was kibda surprised to not see Bullnon included on the list. Any particular reason why it wasn't included? Or does it fall under the category of the many good ones missed?

Have you tried D-Termination 1200? Heard good things about it.

What are your thoughts of Gplc, I add to my pre workout. My stomach can't handle agmatine so I use this in conjunction with glycerol and nitrosigine.

Oh great question, I can't believe we missed that one!

So yeah, the good news is that it boosts nitrate/nitrite levels at 4g/day: and 3g does increase nitric oxide:

It's definitely the preferred form of L-Carnitine in terms of bloodflow -

Problem is, it'll cost you over $1.00 to get 3g in -- so is it worth it compared to the others? Maybe, especially if you can't deal with agmatine. And maybe you can get away with 2g and still feel it.

It's been quite a while since I personally used any, and I don't think I was dosing enough, now that I see the studies above. I was only trying like 1.5g.

I'm a Triathlete and compete in other endurance events, what would you recommend for these types of sports that require power AND endurance.

Hey, this is a great question - I've done a lot of endurance training too. Honestly, my favorite pre workout for these activities aren't even on the page - it's Giant Sports Metabolic Bioshock:

It has BCAAs, joint support, and in one scoop you'll get just enough nitrates to give endurance, but not so much to give you a pump that'd interfere with swimming. Same goes for caffeine and creatine - one scoop has 150mg / 1.5g, so not TOO much. Great balance for endurance.

The one thing I'd add is bulk beta alanine, though. SO huge for endurance, you should get this in regardless. Take 2g pre training, 2g elsewhere in the day. for that. Doesn't taste bad so powder is fine.

I'm a long time Muay Thai and martial arts / mma practitioner. What would you recommend for those type of training? I'm been using ANS Ritual for about 6+ months now, I'm at 2 scoops, I also mix it with Scivation Xtend for BCAAs. I think it's given me a boost but not entirely sure. Interested in trying something more powerful to boost my workouts (padwork, bagwork, sparring, strength and conditioning). Thanks in advance for any advice.

Hey Mike, I guess it depends on what you mean by "more powerful".

When I'm boxing (just heavy bag work), I get my heart rate up over 170 in MINUTES. So for that reason, I don't want more stims. In that case, NutraBio came out with a product named Fighter's Fuel that we want to add to the low-stim part of this page:

It's fully loaded but only has 100mg caffeine, so it's good for that situation. You're the exact demographic. NutraBio is run by a martial arts expert (Mark Glazier)

But if you feel like you need more stims than 2 scoops of Ritual, you can either take a stim-break and start over, or try something like 1.5-2 scoops of Jack'd Up or Mesomorph - both have DMAA and will take that to the next level. I'm just not a fan of that much stim when doing your kind of workouts though.. which is why I'll be trying Fighter's Fuel next to get the full ergogenics / endurance stuff without my heart rate going any higher than need be.

Keep the BCAAs, great for what you're doing too.

Thanks for the tip Mike, I'm going to try the Fighter Fuel, been doing a bit more reading on PricePlow, so I think I'm also going to stack on Nutrabio's Intrablast (upgrade from Xtend) and Nutrabio's Post. Do you think those 3 are good combinations?

Definitely yes to Fighter Fuel and Intra Blast. Great great products. But have never tried POST.

At that point, you might be fine with just some protein and carbs that fit your diet, however you get them cheapest. You'll already be good to go on creatine, betaine, etc... NutraBio is obviously super trusted but your bill's gonna run up if you buy *all* stuff from them!

Hey hoping for a little advice. I run track in college. 100, 200, & 400. I don't currently take any pre workout as the ones i have tried before have made me anxious and downright uncomfortable. I am somewhat stim sensitive never been a coffee drinker plus all the running & added sim had my heart feeling like it would burst. For that i am interested focused based more than anything. Do you think the 175mg caffeine in Myokem Nitramine is still too much? What would you recommend for my situation?

Honestly, it might be. There's more than just caffeine in there too, and if you're a college sprinter, you're gonna be movin faster than the average dude on this site!

I would look at this one instead:

This has only 100mg caffeine in a dose, but still has lots of N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine and a decent amount of Huperzine A for focus.

Adding some form of choline would still be great though - look at 300mg-600mg Alpha-GPC or citicoline. It's expensive, but there's clear benefits for both strength and focus. The focus is what you feel, but the strength boost could help for sprinting.

Study on the Alpha GPC / strength connection:

Thanks for visiting!!

PS: Note that none of these supplements are "NSF Certified for Sport", which I'm sure you know is what you 'should' be looking out for. But NutraBio is EXTREMELY well-trusted. They don't mess around with quality concerns or banned stuff.

Thanks for the reply Mike! I've heard of Nutrabio and seems great. However, I'd rather have something with less carbs. I eat granola & a banana before workouts & get around 40gs of carbs post workout so an extra 18gs for me seems a little high even for the amount of sprints i do (Im trying to lean out a little right now). Also, I take around 5gs creatine intra/post fyi. Any other pre workouts would suggest for me with less carbs that fit my needs? Thanks!

What about Pre-Kaged? Is it because you have to stack it with intra and rekaged?

I realize this list was a little easier in the year. For next year, i believe dust extreme has to be mentioned in this list towards the #1 spot as well. I think the noopept just puts it slightly above mesomorph even though i love mesomorph and the 4g of beta. If dust extreme had some more beta and some other performance boosting ingredients mesomorph has then its no question dust extreme is better.

On APS Nutrition's Website they claim that Mesomorph V2 has "Over 4,000 mg of beta alanine and 5,000 mg of citrulline malate".... In their 6,500 prop pump blend... Cant believe they rank so high here. I feel like the brand is all hype.

"V2" was the DMAA-Free version. We're not talking about that, we want the 65mg DMAA! The new SuperPump 250 with DMAA should get you more pumps, but drawback is no beta alanine or creatine in that one.
