Some people get excited when their out of pre workout and it’s time to try something new. I am not one of them. Actually, I dread it. Finding a new pre workout is a lot like online dating. It can be hit or miss. Flashy labels promising intense focus and energy sometimes leave me feeling like I just got “Catfished”.
Luckily for my readers and followers, today I have another review for a high caliber pre workout that I know will leave you feeling like a warrior in your gym.
What is Nitraflex?
Nitraflex is a pre workout from GAT. One scoop sports 325 mg of caffeine and 1500 mg of beta-alanine. I know there are other pre workouts containing more. But let’s not forget, more is not always better. I feel like this is a good amount of both ingredients for me to get in the zone without having a massive heart attack. Let’s dig a little deeper into the formula here:
High Citrulline: Arginine Ratio
Nitraflex contains a high citrulline to arginine ratio. We all know arginine is a vasodilator and helps with with blood flow aka”the pump”. The disadvantage to high arginine containing formulas is the fact that overtime the body responds to high arginine levels by increasing production of the enzyme arginase, which breaks down arginine . Citrulline is an amino acid that is closely related to arginine and is vasodilator as well. However, it is unaffected by the enzyme Arginase. In other words, you will not be developing a tolerance to Nitraflex as quickly as you did with other pre workouts.
CFB to help with Testosterone production
This is something unique that Nitraflex brings to the pre workout field. CFB is a natural testosterone booster and we know what more testosterone means.
Creatine Free Version:
Depending on your goals, this may be pro or con. Creatine definitely has it’s place in your supplement stack. However, it does cause water retention and if you’re trying to achieve that hard leaned out look, creatine will temporarily leave you looking a little “softer” because of the extra water you are holding. If you are a competitive bodybuilder, this can make or break your competition.
This is the latest version of Nitraflex; featuring 2 grams of creatine monohydrate. For the noncompetitive bodybuilder, everyday gym-goer, etc., creatine can be a really helpful tool in your stack. What creatine does is help with ATP production, which translates to more energy to push through workouts. Creatine also helps shuttle water to cells. By hydrating cells, we increase muscle synthesis.
DMAE is a precursor to the neurotransmitter acetylcholine which can help improve cognitive acuity. This will help keep you focused in the gym and exercise better.
How does Nitraflex mix?
This pre workout mixes with relatively no effort. It is very soluble in water. Nitraflex scores 10 out of 10 for mixability.
- Overall Score - 10/10 10/10
Overall Score: 10/10
I took nitraflex before doing back and biceps and it is easily my ” go to” pre workout. It’s a pretty fast acting pre workout. I could feel the beta alanine tingling sensations kick in 10 minutes after consuming, my signal to get to the gym fast! Energy and focus were great and I felt like could deadlift for days. One thing I did notice was that I felt hot throughout my workout and I’ve never sweat so much for a back workout before. I think this from the niacin in the formula ( another vasodilator). My overall score for this product is an outstanding 10/10. If you liked APS Mesomorph or Hyde Pre Workout, you will enjoy GAT Nitraflex.
