    Im a pretty novice bodybuilder. Ive only been on a serious training schedule for about a month. I went on bodybuilding.com to look at some articles, and i started reading up on supplements. I take none, not even whey protein or creatine, and i was reading about Nitrix and other NO products. I read nothing saying it wasn't for beginners, but it sounds like a pretty intense, but very good supplement. Any comments? If this isnt for me, what should i consider?

    1. 10x more soluble in water than creatine monohydrate. Therefore, it will absorb from the intestines better, achieving higher blood levels faster and preventing the upset stomach that some people get from monohydrate.

    2. It's much more stable, won't degrade into creatinine in the stomach.

    3. There's the possible theory of CEE passively absorbing into the muscle cells due to its lipophilicity. It hasn't been demonstrated, but if this is the case, it would allow for higher intracellular creatine levels.


    Xtend and ICE are free form BCAA supplements, but Xtend also contains citrulline malate
