    After researching them, i've gotten mixed reviews on these two products. All in all, it seems as ZMA helps with deeper sleep and that's it, doesn't seem to have any other beneficial effects. NO2 and other nitric suspension is great for pumps, so basically good for looks. Can anyone else help a noob out verify or refute these statements?

    pretty much. If you want to try a NO product, do l-arginine. It will give you raging boners...its great for sex drive. I tried some di-arginine from BN, its great for energy on those days I need a boost to get my ass to the gym.

    i've tried twice to get info on arginine (No2) from this forum, and i have failed twice.

    personally, im totally against caffeine & ephedra as "boosters" since they are neurological stimulants & give me a tweaked out feeling. However, YES they do work.

    For myself though, i've gotten good results from stacking SAN Ox (citrullane malate) & BN's Arginine Ethyl Ester.

    no the ethyl ester is not proven, so you could also very well use Arginine-AKG.

    i've tried them both separately & have gotten improved performance & endurance in the gym.

    zma is proven to increase test at night, but idk about muscle recovery.the range of benefits from arginine and other no supps are pretty debated. they never really worked that great for me. if your looking for energy just take a multi and vitamin c

    I love my zma. It's become just as important as whey and a multi to me.

    All I know is that you need sleep to grow. And the deeper, more sound the sleep, the more you can grow. ZMA gives me that.

    and hell, even if it didn't. I sleep like a fucking baby. and I love it.
