Arnold famously described the pump as 'the greatest feeling you can get in the gym'-the sure signal that the body is growing, fast. And let's be honest, isn't getting an incredible pump the point of working out?!
We've all read countless ads announcing the supposed latest and greatest nitric oxide amplifiers: "mind blowing pumps," "massive pumps"-stop me if you've heard it before!! The science seems straightforward, the goal simple enough, so why has there never been a perfect 'pump' product?!
Incomplete products dominate the shelves-expensive ingredients are typically left out. Label after label lists the same basic ingredients, their dosages hidden behind proprietary blends.
What's in the product that actually stimulates a better pump?
Is there really enough of anything else in the product to matter?
Is it worth the price tag?!
If the answers seem unclear, it's probably because they are. Since bursting on the scene in the early 90s, nitric oxide has quickly become a term every supplement fan and gym goer knows-'NO' is synonymous with 'pumps'-NO is everywhere.
10 years ago, NO2 hit market, marking a huge advancement in the pump product world. NO2 was great; we were all taking it, we all loved it-but that was 10 years ago... has nothing changed, no research done since to develop an even better NO?
Finally! After an extensive customer and fan driven beta testing process, Cellucor is ready to deliver the first news-worthy pump product in over a decade! Cellucor's NO3 Chrome is a pre-workout additive, the only Nitric Oxide pump product of its kind, harnessing NO3 technology and high doses of the most potent vasodilators available-in fact, NO3 Chrome contains more Arginine Nitrate than the entire proprietary blend of 'comparable' products!!
No feeling is greater than muscle pumps that last all day; nothing more motivating than seeing veins in the gym mirrors you never knew you had. There is no other NO product-NO3 Chrome is the product that you've been promised for decades.
By now you know that NO3 is Nitrate-an advanced compound that delivers unbelievable muscle pumps and amplifies the effectiveness of anything it's co-ingested with. NO3 Chrome utilizes NO3 in the form of Arginine Nitrate-a fusion of L-Arginine and Nitric Acid.
Arginine is a potent precursor of nitric oxide, stimulating eNOS production inside your body. Nitrates dilate the smooth muscle tissue found in your veins and arteries. Unlike skeletal muscle tissue, smooth muscle is involuntary-you can't contract or control it. Nitrate activates these muscles, enlarging the arteries, veins, and capillaries that pump blood into your biceps, triceps, and quads, maximizing blood flow. Combining these two efficient and powerful vasodilators generates unmatched NO levels in the body, giving you the long lasting, unbelievable pumps you've been waiting for.
Pycnogenol is an integral component of NO3 Chrome that sets Cellucor's formula apart from anything else on the market today. Pycnogenol stimulates eNOS in arterial cell walls, expanding blood vessels up to 78.4%! In several clinical trials, Pycnogenol greatly enhanced blood flow and oxygen transport to the muscles, augmenting athletic and exercise performance and endurance over 21%!
NO3 Chrome also contains Norvaline, an integral ingredient typically left out of other NO boosters due to its high cost! Norvaline inhibits Arginase, diminishing the body's ability to limit nitric oxide production. Without norvaline, your body cannot maximize nitric oxide production from the other precursors you're taking-you're wasting time and money!
PUMP MAXIMIZING BLEND
Arginine Nitrate is a fusion of L-Arginine and Nitric Acid. Arginine is a power precursor to nitric oxide that supports vascularity and strength, and promotes healthy growth hormone levels.* Nitrate is a highly absorbable derivative of nitric acid. It is an effective vasodilator, enlarging the blood pathways into the muscles, which may help support blood flow, muscle pumps, and more efficient nutrient delivery.* Combining these two efficient and powerful vasodilators may help support NO levels in the body.*
Citrulline is a precursor of Arginine and an integral part of the NO cycle. When co-ingested, Arginine and Citrulline work synergistically to enhance and extend Nitric Oxide production, resulting in amplified vasodilatation-increased blood flow, nutrient delivery, and bigger, longer-lasting muscle pumps.
GRAPE SEED EXTRACT
Grape seed extract is a naturally occurring antioxidant that has a free radical scavenging effect 20 times more potent than vitamin C or vitamin E. Grape seed has similar metabolic pathways to NO and enhances vasodilation while protecting the body from free radical by-products of NO production. Grape seed extract's numerous holistic health benefits include increased metabolism and testosterone levels.
Pycnogenol is naturally derived from the French Maritime Pine Tree. Pycnogenol stimulates eNOS in arterial cell walls, expanding blood vessels up to 78.4%! In several clinical trials, Pycnogenol was found to greatly enhance blood flow and oxygen transport to the muscles, augmenting athletic and exercise performance and endurance over 21%!
Pycnogenol also reduces muscle soreness and cramps, specifically in contact sport athletes. It is a potent antioxidant that has been found to strengthen blood vessels and expedite tissue recuperation.
Calcium Ascorbate is a natural form of Vitamin C. Vitamin C promotes an anabolic physical state, reducing the stress hormone Cortisol, enhancing the Testosterone to Cortisol Ratio. Research indicates that Vitamin C greatly reduces Nitrate Tolerance while supplementing with Nitrates.
Vitamin C also possesses a multitude of holistic health benefits, augmenting the body's defenses as it boosts immune system function, eradicates free radicals, strengthens bones and connective tissues, and expedites wound healing.
L-Norvaline is an amino acid that diminishes the body's ability to limit Nitric Oxide production. Norvaline limits Arginase, an enzyme that interrupts NO synthesis by breaking down Arginine in the body. Norvaline binds to and inhibits Arginase, increasing Arginine levels, thereby increasing NO
