What Is NitroVin?
NitroVin is a pre-workout supplement formulated to boost the body’s nitric oxide levels in order to increase energy, vascularity, strength and workout capability. This enhanced workout ability purportedly enables peope to pack on muscle mass at a rapid rate. Its formula blend is comprised entirely of plant extracts, herbs, roots, vitamins and minerals. Its active ingredients are organic extracts L-Citrulline D-Malate, Taurine and L-Arginine. The manufacturer’s researchers developed this supplement in a sterile, FDA-inspected facility.
This workout aid is directed toward a variety of adult male demographics. For one, it is formulated to boost sports performance for athletes who are looking to enhance their abilities in the game. As it is generally safe and legal, it is considered to be an appealing option to athletes who want to avoid illegal steroid usage. It is also directed as fitness professionals such as bodybuilders and weightlifters who want to get increasingly shredded and powerful. It is also purportedly popular among military men who are seeking added strength, stamina and endurance as well as, overall, any man who wants to maximize his physical and mental abilities.
Nitrovin was researched, developed, manufactured and marketed by a company called Advanced Bio Studies. Advanced Bio Studies states that it took its researchers many months to develop this specific nitric oxide booster. This manufacturer does not have a company website at this time. Still, it does appear to have extensive experience manufacturing and marketing a number of different health and fitness supplements. This apparent track record of success may well be a draw to fitness customers who prefer to buy solely from more established companies.
On the product website, there are links for an event calendar and a blog, but the links are broken and do not actually link to any information. More cautious consumers may view this as an indicator of unprofessionalism. Other who are interested in finding out more about what the company is all about and what its mission is in the fitness industry may be disappointed. Advanced Bio Studies would be well-advised to either remove these broken links or to provide content in order to both educate customers as well as to establish the professionalism of their website.
How NitroVin Works?
Nitric oxide is a key molecule in delivering oxygenated blood and nutrients to the cells, organs and muscle tissue in the body. As a result, it plays an important role in muscle growth and the post-workout recovery process. According to the manufacturer, the nitric oxide-producing extracts in NitroVin’s formula ramps up this molecule’s production and therefore not only provide muscles with the strength and stamina boost necessary to achieve more powerful pumps but also to heal faster after intense training sessions. The plants, roots, herbs, vitamins and minerals in the product formula dissolve in the bloodstream, increasing production of nitric oxide and routing nutrients and oxygen to working muscles. Some also believe it helps lung capacity, which aids in the process of aerobic fat burning to uncover sculpted, defined muscles underneath.
The manufacturer asserts that not only does nitric oxide contribute to blood flow, it is believed to contribute to glucose intake, muscle velocity, strength output and myogenesis. This translates to improved workout capacity and therefore greater muscle definition and lean muscle mass. It also contributes to protein synthesis, a key process in building layers of new muscle. Nitric oxide contributes by moving blood more fluidly to skeletal muscles which, when paired with greater blood amino acid concentrations, helps to increase amino acid uptake by muscle cells. The result, many believe, is more energy and faster recovery to build a lean, sculpted physique.
Ingredients of NitroVin
L-Citrulline D-Malate is one of the primary components in NitroVin’s proprietary formula. L-Citrulline is a precursor for L-Arginine and is thus posited to be a major contributor in increasing the body’s ability to absorb and raise L-Arginine supplies. It plays an important role in the production of nitric oxide as well due to its role in increasing the levels of L-Arginine in the blood. It is a popular supplement additive in bodybuilding arenas due to its reputation for being an effective fatigue combatant. Many fitness professionals believe it enables more powerful pumps and dilates blood vessels for improved blood flow to stressed muscle tissue.
L-Arginine is another key ingredient that has a reputation for being an effective vasodilator. The manufacturer states that is also helps the body produce more Creatine, a compound necessary for the contraction of blood vessel walls. L-Arginine is a semi-essential amino acid widely believed to be more easily absorbed by the body when consumed by mouth. Pine Bark, another featured ingredient, is an antioxidant that protects endothelial cells. It is believed to be a powerful contributor to nitric oxide production and to promote the body’s reuse of L-Arginine. The manufacturer also states it keeps L-Arginine actively cycling through the bloodstream, amplifying NitroVin’s muscle-building effects.
Taurine is another prominent ingredient in this supplement’s extract blend. This company states that scientists have described it as a ‘wonder molecule,’ though it doesn’t specify why nor does it link to any clinical research. It is believed to be effective in ameliorating the effects physical damage caused by fat, excessive insulin levels and glucose. It is also believed to strengthen the muscle cells of the heart, allowing for greater energy, strength and endurance. As directed, these tablets must be consumed with a glass of water or a protein shake a half an hour before workouts once or twice daily, while the most dramatic results come with consistent use and training for at least three months.
Some purported advantages to using NitroVin include increased lean muscle mass, better strength and power, improved lung capacity and a stronger, more powerful heart. Other stated benefits include more energy, elevated endurance levels, a sharper mental capacity and increased vitality. This supplement claims to combat fatigue, muscle weakness, fat and muscle cramping and soreness. The product website states that nitric oxide — a key component in the product formula — has been scientifically shown to improve sports performance and stamina in athletes (even athletes who were healthy and fit to begin with). It also purportedly helps to improve delivery of nutrients, vitamins and oxygen to muscles, thereby reducing soreness and post-workout recovery time.
This supplement also claims to provide a significant advantage fitness and vitality boost to older men whose testosterone levels may have declined naturally over the years. The NitroVin website states that, by the age of 40, many man will retain about half the nitric oxide it did at the age of twenty. Thus, it states, by the time a man reaches the age of 70, he will only be able to produce about 25% of the optimal nitric oxide supply needed for maximum physical health, although the site does not provide links to studies or clinical research that verify this. This supplement promises to be a significant boon for older men who want to be as fit and strong as they may have been in their younger years.
The developers of NitroVin assert that this supplement was developed with state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques. Not only that, its components have been GRAS-certified. ‘GRAS’ stands for ‘generally regarded as safe’ and means that its components have been recognized by the FDA as generally safe for human consumption. These determinations are made by experts in the field of food safety. Still, it is important to recognize that some may experience allergic reactions and/or interactions to the plant extracts in the formula, and it is always wise to at least thoroughly research the ingredient list to rule out the possibility of harmful side effects.
The GRAS label also implies that this manufacturer and its expert panels have conducted the necessary research to determine that its product does meet federal regulations and standards for GRAS certification. It assumes that the developer has conducted the necessary due diligence to make this determination and that it has submitted a GRAS notification to the FDA for review. Fitness- and research-minded men will likely appreciate the added safety assurance this certification provides.
This has turned out to be the NO2 booster I’ve been looking for. I needed to do some serious cutting for a show I had coming up so I needed a serious supplement to give me an energy rush during training to help me do more reps in less time. Well, I won the competition and even lost a few pounds as well. I can’t help but credit NitroVin for playing a major part in my win, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds. I would recommend at least giving giving this a shot if you’re serious about training hard and winning. – Doug M., competitive bodybuilder in Auckland, New Zealand
I’ve tried supplementing with nitric oxide boosters in the past, but I hadn’t noticed any real difference in my power and pumps. I read that this stuff was good and had a money-back guarantee, so I figured it was at least worth trying. I felt an energy rush in the first hour I took it with my protein shake. I lifted heavier weights for longer, and I didn’t take two days to recover afterward. This has helped me take my training to a new level. – Jory M., auto mechanic in Chesterfield, ME, USA
This stuff has given my workouts a major boost as far as strength and energy go. In a matter of a few weeks, I’ve doubled the number of deadlifts I can do in a single workout. My girlfriend also appreciates the new muscles that are popping up all over. This supplement is a definite win in my book. – Chad S., marketing coordinator in Lansing S., MI, USA
My buddy turned me onto this after I asked him how he got so shredded in such a short period of time. He had always been pretty lean but in a period of just a couple of months, he started to get seriously ripped. He told me to try taking a couple of capsules before our sessions, and let me just say that the stamina boost has been impressive. I’ve not only gotten more stacked but have also lost five pounds, and I’ve only been using it for three weeks. – Tim T., sales manager in Madison, WI, USA
Awards & Media Coverage
It is currently unknown whether NitroVin has had any media exposure as of yet. There are no details online as to whether it has been featured in, or made any appearances on, common fitness supplement media outlets such as radio, TV or fitness magazines. The copyright date of the product website is 2016, so it may be part of a newer crop of supplements that may receive media coverage in the future. There is a blog section on its website which does not feature any content at present. Similarly, there is an event calendar but it too is empty of content.
NitroVin has not won any awards at present in the workout supplement industry. Still, it does seem to have an extensive presence on numerous online outlets dedicated to anabolic supplements. It has been widely reviewed on such websites and has received a number of positive reviews among users on blogs and bodybuilding forums. It has been marketed, sold and discussed on a wide range of fitness websites.
Unfortunately, this particular manufacturer does not offer any sort of trial program for NitroVin. This lack of a risk-free trial is a rarity in the pre-workout supplement world, as most merchants offer at least a 10-day trial period plus four additional days for shipping and processing at minimum. Some customers who are on the fence about whether or not to buy this product may decide against it, instead perhaps deciding to go with a competing nitric oxide booster whose manufacturer does indeed offer a trial.
However, NitroVin customers do have the option of a 60-day money-back guarantee. Unfortunately, nowhere on the website does the company outline further details of this policy aside from the fact that customers may contact a support representative via email to cancel an order or subscription plan. It does not state whether customers must return the product undamaged and unopened or it if will accept returns for partially used bottles. It also does not say what the return process is and how soon refunds are issued once the product is received at corporate return facilities.
Shipping costs vary according to which package plan the customer selects. For a single bottle of NitroVin, the cost of shipping and handling is a flat rate of $5.95. For three bottles, shipping is free. Unfortunately, the product website does not specify either on the main section of the site or at checkout what the cost of shipping and handling is for the 3-bottle 90-day membership. This may well be an oversight on the part of the merchant, who may want to include this fee along with the others in order to minimize customer frustration.
One major advantage of ordering from this company is its shipping versatility. Shipping is where this merchant far outperforms competitors in the dietary supplement industry. Shipping is offered not only anywhere in the United States but also to a wide range of countries including Afghanistan, Antigua and Barbuda, United Kingdom, Thailand, South Africa, Mexico and Norfolk Island, to name just a few. However, nowhere on the website are any shipping policies outlined or specified. The product website does not state what shipping carrier(s) it uses, whether it ships on weekends and/or whether any additional shipping insurance is offered.
Although the NitroVin website itself is clean and professional-looking, there is very limited information regarding customer service listed therein. In fact, this deficiency of customer support information is one of the more lacking among popular online supplement suppliers. On the ‘contact’ section of the site, the only contact information given is an email address for questions, comments or inquiries of any sort. The company promises to get back to emails as soon as they are able, usually within 2 business days. There is no telephone number provided to speak with a live representative.
The manufacturer does not specify whether support agents are available for inquiry responses on weekends or holidays. This vagueness of policy and lack of either a telephone number of a physical mailing address, may very well put off customers who might view this lack of contact information as being indicative of a less-than-professional or a less-than-established manufacturer. This company would be well advised to expand their customer service department and add at least a telephone line of contact for customer convenience.
Safe & Secure Checkout
The NitroVin website states that the company will not sell or rent any personal or financial customer information for any marketing purposes. Furthermore, it states that all information is encrypted and transmitted SSL security protocol. It does not, however, specify which SSL security technology it uses nor does it display any security logos. Seasoned supplement customers may find this lack of SSL certificate display to be a disadvantage and may fear that this lack of SSL logo means their information is treated less securely.
Pricing & Free Trial
NitroVin customers have the fortunate option of being able to choose between three pricing packages, each tailored to varying user needs. The first option is for a one-month supply of 90 capsules for $69, which reflects a $30 savings and does not include a minimal shipping and handling fee. The second option is three bottles for a three-month supply at $149, which reflects a $299 savings complete with free shipping. The third option is as three-bottle subscription plan for $99 ($33 a bottle), wherein a new 90-day supply will be delivered to the customer’s doorstep after the third month on an ongoing basis. This does not including charges for shipping and handling, and the customer may contact customer service to cancel the subscription at any time.
The second pricing package has the added advantage of having no automatic enrollment, so there is no need for the buyer to contact customer service to cancel. Methods of accepted payment are Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. Unfortunately, PayPal is not currently an accepted payment method. Customers are responsible for any sales tax applicable to their specific geographic region. The product website does not specify any details for international purchases and how currency conversions may affect non-US orders.
