Nitric oxide is one of the most coveted chemicals in the body building world alongside testosterone and growth hormones. Some claim that arginine is the most effective way to increase nitric oxide, while others have tried to blaze their own trail to increase the chemical.
eNoxide by MuscleMeds is a pre workout supplement that contains a patented formula designed to directly supplement nitric oxide into the body. According to the makers of eNoxide, their revolutionary product will deliver breakthrough results.
MuscleMeds is pretty well-known for their products because most of them contain unique formulas that are better than their competition. eNoxide is no different as it contains a single patented ingredient, or molecule.
The molecule is called 2-(nitrooxy)ethyl 2-amino-3-methylbutanoate or eNoxin for short. The makers of eNoxin claim it is so effective that it even has a U.S. Patent, but the truth is patents don’t always make a product effective.
Luckily for us, there have been clinical studies on nitric oxide production and specifically using eNoxin. The few studies that we found shoed that eNoxin produced minimal muscle growth when compared to a placebo. Clearly results differ from everyone and these studies used a very small sample size, but it doesn’t look good for this ingredient.
eNoxide is unique because it is designed to be dissolved under the tongue. You may notice on the label that there is only 10 mg of eNoxin, but because it is absorbed under the tongue, it is likely more efficient than a regular oral capsule.
Since eNoxin is derived from nitric oxide, its results are direct. Most pre workout supplements contain arginine, which is a precursor to nitric oxide but may not actually work. ENoxin is meant to eliminate that conversion process.
You are essentially putting all your eggs in one basket with eNoxide because it only contains one active ingredient. Also, since that ingredient has been proven ineffective in some studies, we have little hope for this product.
It also doesn’t help that eNoxide is sold for around $50 per bottle. If you are over 200 pounds, then one bottle will last you just one month. If you weigh less, you have the advantage because it can last up to two months. Still, $50 per bottle is not worth paying for.
eNoxide is a hit and miss supplement. Consumer reviews are all over the place when it comes to this supplement. While some users have experienced great pumps and more strength, others complained that it tasted bad, cost too much, and produced no effects.
We don’t blame you for being skeptical about a tiny capsule that dissolves under your tongue and is supposed to build muscle and intensify your workout. We are still skeptical. But since there are some positive reviews out there, we aren’t completely against trying it. It is just a matter of finding the urge to fork over the cash.
