Blood vessels are the pathways for oxygen and nutrient transport throughout the body, which are both carried by the blood. Therefore, if your blood vessels are kept wide open, it will surely benefit this transportation, allowing an increased volume of blood to flow through, yielding more oxygen and nutrients to muscle tissue. Nitrosigine® promises just that but how does it work?

What is Nitrosigine®?

Nitrosigine is a rather new trademarked compound which comprises arginine and silicon, also known as arginine silicate salt, which includes potassium. Nitrosigine® uses the naturally occurring Myo-inositol, a naturally occurring sugar alcohol used as a drying agent, to stabilise the primary active ingredient. These two compounds need to be combined in order to be absorbed and available to working tissue.

Arginine is the primary ingredient in Nitrosigine®, which is an amino acid that is responsible for the production of nitric oxide (N.O.). Nitric oxide dilates blood vessels which, in turn, results in increased blood flow. Silicone is a versatile mineral that also helps protect the walls of blood vessels, further enhancing blood flow.

What are its benefits?

As we spoke about earlier, the main benefit is the increased blood flow through vasodilation (wider blood vessels). However, what makes Nitrosigine® different from standard arginine supplements, is the fact that it is bonded with silicone and inositol, making it far more absorbent, and, therefore, more potent.

The increased oxygen flow and nutrient transport result in improved recovery, meaning you can train harder, and get back in the gym quicker. It also increases your muscle growth potential, as the muscle tissue is receiving an increased amount of nutrients to repair itself with. Furthermore, Nitrosigine® has been shown to reduce creatine kinase, which is a marker of muscle damage, levels after exercise by 44%

Not too mention the pump you will get from Nitrosigine®, which will leave you looking super swole while you train. Inducing a massive pump doesn’t only make you look incredibly big in the mirror, but it has also been shown to create a more conducive environment for muscle and strength gain.

When should you take it?

As with other pre-workout products, Nitrosigine® should be taken roughly 15-30 minutes before a training session, but seeing as it’s already found in pre-workout products, just mix it in water and drink it as you would before. Arginine and silicone levels are increased for an hour and a half (roughly) after you first consume it and extends further as you continue to use it.

How much should you take?

As far as we can tell, the optimal dose for Nitrosigine® is 1500mg a day, according to various studies. However, we suggest gauging on your personal experience. You do not need to load with Nitrosigine® to reap the benefits, as it will work from the first serving and saturate even further over time. This continued use will lead to an increase in nitric oxide, silicone, and arginine levels in the bloodstream, to enhance vasodilation.

Does it combine well?

Seeing as how Nitrosigine® is simply a combination of silicone and arginine, there is no reason why it would not combine well with other ingredients. As it is commonly found in pre-workouts, it is already stacked with compounds such as beta-alanine, creatine, citrulline malate, and caffeine. Lastly, it is also found in combinations with zinc, Tribulus, and Eurycoma Longifolia.


Nitrosigine® is an extremely effective compound that increases vasodilation, allowing increased blood flow to muscle and working tissue, ensuring you are getting optimal oxygen saturation and nutrient intake. The combination of arginine and silicone increases its absorption rate, making it a greater alternative to regular arginine. Combining Nitrosigine® with citrulline, creatine, beta-alanine, and caffeine will give you a workout like never before.
