    I just picked up a tub at work last night. Typically I have three days a week where I work over 12 hours and it's really difficult to get the intensity I need in the gym after working for so long. I'm not expecting miracles and could give two ****s about the percieved NO pump, but I have heard great anecdotal evidence supporting No-xplode's claims of increased energy/ intensity before workouts. I picked it up mainly as a lifting supplement but I'm sure I'll use it for my riding as well. I'll let you know how it works out for me after a week or two trial.

    it works amazingly well.. dont take too much starting out though.. start with one scoop and work up to two or three, i havent used it on any rides yet, but i cant wait to. Its awesome for having a really good work out at the gym, even after a long day at work.

    I'm not surprised, you're basically paying $21.52/ pound for a glucose/nicotine complex. The Amino Acids in it are destroyed by the digestive tract, as well as little of the creatine complex surviving the digestive tract. Most of the energy burst you are getting is from the NAD (Nicotine complex), Glucose compounds and triglycerides in it.

    Read this from the site:
    Warnings: Individuals sensitive to stimulants should begin use with half the recommended dosage (1-2 scoops) to help access your tolerance. Seek advice from a health care provider prior to use if you have any pre-existing medical condition including (but not limited to): hypotension, hypertension, heart, liver, or thyroid disease, diabetes, psychiatric disease, asthma, pernicious anemia, anxiety, depression, seizure disorder, cardiac arrhythmia's, stroke, difficulty urinating due to prostate enlargement, or if you are taking an MAO inhibitor or any other prescription drug. Do not use if you are pregnant or nursing. Reduce or discontinue use if excessive sleeplessness, tremors, dizziness, nervousness, headaches, or heart palpitations occur. For use by healthy adults only. Not intended for use by persons under the age of 18. Keep out of the reach of children. Note: Due to the translucency of the bottle, do not store in direct sunlight. Store in a cool dry place.

    This is the result of the NAD. It's a strong central nervous system stimulant based on nicotine. Essentially, as a dietary supplement this is NOT regulated by the FDA. I'd really think a couple of times before I used it. The only other good components I could really see were the Citric Acid, and the B complex vitamins in it.

    Yuppers, nicotiana derivative is as addictive as nicotine proper. It's just an herbal supplement name for nicotine extract.

    Hmmm... Do you have a source for this information?
    The "NAD" in the supplement in question appears to be nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. While i do not know very much about this substance, its wikipedia entry does not make it sound near that noxious.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicotin...e_dinucleotide

    Here are a few excerpts that make me question your assertion:

    "Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, abbreviated NAD+, is a coenzyme found in all living cells."

    "In organisms, NAD+ can be synthesized from scratch (de novo) from the amino acids tryptophan or aspartic acid. Alternatively, components of the coenzymes are taken up from food as the vitamin called niacin."

    "Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide has several essential roles in metabolism."

    Is not nicotinamide AKA niacin AKA vitamin B3; got its name because it is similar in structure to nicotine?
