Nitric Oxide = less lactic acid????

Do nitric oxide supplements (arginine based ones...if there is a difference?) reduce the production of lactic acid in muscles? i.e. allow for harder work before cramping and speedier recovery? if yes, wouldn't that also increase the use of fat as a fuel source as opposed to carbs? would that...

Who are leading academics on supplementation?

I know the personalities and authorities in the industry, but obviously there is some bias there. They want to sell more supplements and thus will spin everything positively. For instance, the industry is still hooked on pushing glutamine when there is absolutely zero compelling evidence that it...

BCAA abrosbtion

Hi, so I'm pretty new on here and have just got in to taking supplements (vitamins, bcaa and whey), and because I'm a bit of a bio nerd I've been wondering: 1. You need enzymes to break down the protein molecules prior to absorption in the digestive tract. Following basic enzyme law, they can...

Taking BioPerine w/ ZMA Pro

I've read that you shouldn't take any calcium-containing foods or supplements when you take ZMA (it says it on the bottle as well) But the BioPerine from Source Naturals has 28mg of calcium in it. Would it be safe to take with ZMA Pro? This was on the article "The Benefits of ZMA" from Jim...

Talking about supplementation with your physician

Who has discussed their supplementation with their physicians? What was your physicians response? Were they familiar and educated on supplementation outside of the basic vitamins and minerals? What were their thoughts on preworkouts and fat burners? I would like to hear some personal stories!
