AURORA, ILLINOIS â APRIL 28, 2008. Bodybuilders and strength athletes live for the pumped-up feeling that comes with intense weight lifting. The physiological precursor to the âPumpâ is nitric oxide (N.O.), a cellular gas that dilates vessels to increase the flow of blood, oxygen and nutrients to muscles. For those involved in resistance training, this increased blood flow also facilitates the clearing of metabolic waste that can bring on fatigue during a workout.
Numerous studies have identified the conditionally essential amino acid arginine as one of the most effective N.O. activators. This is precisely why Optimum Nutrition included 3 grams of arginine compounds in every serving of their new Vassive N.O. Formula-X sustained release tablets. There are other N.O. activators, of course. The âXâ was used in the productâs name as a Roman Number 10 to highlight the number of N.O. promoting compounds present in each tablet.
âAlong with arginine, Vassive N.O. Formula-X contains nine additional âpump-potentiatingâ compounds,â said Phil Brown, a Food Scientist at ONâs Aurora Product Development Laboratory. âCitrulline malta, quercetin, American ginseng and rhodiola extracts, histidine, cnidium monnier, norvaline, pomegranate and theobromine have been specifically formulated to work synergistically with arginine and promote muscle fullness and vascularity for an extended period.â
