Nitrix Reviews - Are They Hype or Help?

Updated on September 16, 2009

If you’re like most people who go to the gym to lift weights, you do it for a couple of reasons. Yeah, sure, you know it’s good for your long term health and that’s great. But if you weren’t seeing results of a leaner, more muscular physique, then the motivation might just go right out the window. I know that is the case for me, and that is why I started looking around for nitrix reviews online. From what I heard a few people saying, it sounded like it could be worth buying some, but I didn’t want to do that without reading up on it a bit first.

What I learned was very intriguing. BSN Nitrix is designed to slowly increase the levels of NO in your body, which in turn leads to adding strength and stamina to your workouts. In addition to that, the ‘sizzle’ part of this product is that you hold on to your post-workout pump for hours after you’re done! Talk about motivation! Sure, it’s great to be adding strength and muscle to your frame over time, but that’s the key part we all have to admit; it takes time. Wouldn’t it be great to look like you do right after a workout most of the time, rather than just during that small window that exists after you leave the gym? Well, that’s what nitrix claims to be able to do for you.

Does it actually work? I did some digging on the internet to see what people had to say about it. While there were a significant number of people who said this product was nothing but hype and was useless, it seemed that most of these people had never actually tried the product. So I wanted to find some reviews of people who had personal experience using it. Not stuff posted on the BSN website where they sell it, but on blogs, forums and general fitness sites. I also spoke to several people at my gym who were the ones I initially overheard discussing nitrix several months ago as they were getting ready to try it. They were the ones who piqued my curiosity about it and got me doing some research. So I went back to them to see what their experience was too, now that it had been a while since they started. Here’s what I found.

First, the guys at my gym. There were 3 of them, and it turned out that only 2 decided to use the product (one of them had other expenses that prohibited him from starting at that time). Both of the guys I spoke with were quite positive about their experience with nitrix, though one said it tended to give him a bit of a stomach ache at first, but after a few weeks, that side-effect went away. They both said they felt their strength had improved more than it had in previous 6 week training cycles, and that they felt bigger. Unfortunately, neither of them had recorded their body weight at the start of their use, so they couldn’t verify it with hard numbers.

From my perspective, they both looked like their physiques had improved. It is true that they are at the gym regularly, working hard, so it’s difficult for me to say that nitrix is solely responsible for it. Plus, I don’t know them all that well, so I’m not sure what they looked like 3, 6 or 9 months ago. I had to take their word for it (though they seem honest and not ‘hype-y’).

That is as close to a ‘personal’ account as I can give. From me on-line reading, I found more positive comments that have led me to be leaning towards giving this product a try. For example, here are some of the kinds of comments I found:

I feel so much better when i work out and my pumps are more intense and my veins are bigger and more veins have appeared!
-user comment from trulyhuge.com

i have honestly no joke increased my strength at least 30 percent in two weeks

-user comment from nicemuscle.com

Recovery between sets and between sessions was much better
-user comment from supplementcritic.com

On the other hand, not everyone was crazy about it. There were a few of these as well:

So I've been on this stuff for week. Not really long enough for me to feel or notice any different.
-user comment from supplementcritic.com

it took a week or so both cycles to "ramp up" to where I noticed any effect at all. "All-day pumps" wasn't one of them

-user comment from amazon.com

So there you have it… About as clear as mud, I know. To me, I think it’s worth a try. Seems like the worst case scenario is that I get nothing form it. At best??? I get bigger, stronger and look better for longer when I leave the gym. As far as I’m concerned, it’s a no-brainer. We’ll see how it goes!
