    never used it but all i am seeing there is essentail and non-essentail amino acids as well as creatine all in very small amounts.

    Let me try to disect this one. Here's the first place to look when you're investigating a new supplement... http://www.nitroxy3.com/product_info/N3_supplement_facts.pdf

    That's a terrible image they use, probably for good reason. The real ingredients are in the top right corner. Here they are in order:

    L-arginine hydrochloride
    L-arginine alpha keto-gluterate
    -----------
    Creatine monohydrate
    L-leucine
    L-valine

    L-arginine is what makes this product nitrous, it contains 3g total per serving. All nitrous products are arginine based... http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/no2.html. These include BSN Nitrix, NO-XS and Nox2. L-Arginine on it's own is relatively dirt cheap http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/arginine.html. You can get WAY more arginine for the same amount as you'd pay for the branded arginine's. They give you the same "pump" feeling for a lot less money. Even one serving of All The Whey contains almost 0.5g of arginine. The dosage is correct here, though, 3g per day of arginine per day is typically recommended.

    Now, we all know what creatine is, and that you generally take 5g per day of it. The BLEND that contains creatine is only 1.7g per serving, so the amount of creatine in that stuff is negligible. Leucine and Valine are branch chain aminos, just like you'd find in All The Whey, or almost any whey product for that matter. In one serving of ATW, there's 2.3g of leucine and 1.3g of valine. So the Nitroxy can't even touch the amount of those ingredients you get in 1 single scoop of ATW.

    Conclusion : Serious waste of money. Buy L-arginine on its own if you want the pump that this product might deliver. Beyond that, you're tossing away a lot of money for ingredients you're probably already taking. Even if you weren't taking them, the dosages in this product are way too small to have much effect.

    Here we go, both from bb.com :

    Nitroxy3 : 36 servings @ 2 servings/day = 18 days supply = $40
    NOW L-Arginine : 120 servings @ 3 servings/day = 40 day supply = $10

    :confused: Decisions, decisions...
