Lightning Finally shipped to testers today...everyone should have it by Monday at the latest.

Here is the write up and ingredients profile. Yes, I know it is a bit marketing heavy. Deal with it. And as I said before, this is not a "flagship" type of product for Omega...it was made to fill a void in our lineup and provide a bridge to our more exclusive, novel product(s) that is still a bit aways.


===========================

Lightning from Omega Sports was designed to be the quickest-striking, and the largest pump inducing Nitric Oxide product on the market. Gone are the days of having a mundane workout that you just don’t “feel”. Lightening will prime your body to have the most explosive workouts day after day after day. And with synergy in mind, we have designed Lightening to stack perfectly with Cre-Ethyl Thunder for the best gains of your life in muscle mass, strength, pump and endurance outside of hormonal products, period. That is our promise to you.





Lightning

With literally hundreds of Nitric Oxide (NO) producing products on the market, you may be wondering why Omega Sports decided to release Lightning instead of focusing our efforts into new, groundbreaking, never seen before products…

And here’s the answer: Nitric Oxide products have yet to reach their full potential! That’s right; virtually every NO product currently on the market is either severely under dosed, way overpriced, or just are just plain garbage haphazardly thrown together in hopes of making a few quick sales with flashy ad campaigns and scantily clad women. Not so with Lightning!

Lightning has everything you need in an NO product and nothing you don’t. Let’s break it down:

Lightning does NOT use Ethyl Esters. We chose to not use ethyl esters for a few reasons. First, they lack unanimous positive feedback; it is extremely hit or miss with Arginine Ethyl Ester. Further more, Arginine Ethyl Ester, unlike CEE, lacks the scientific inferences that it will out perform its regular base counterpart. That’s right…the jury is still out as to whether AEE is more effective than other Arginine products. And that just ain’t gonna work for Lightning. We wanted to take the guesswork out of this and provide an exceptional product that has no doubt as to whether it’s for show or go.

And Di-L-Arginine-L-Malate (AKA Nitrous Malate) is all go. Nitrous Malate is Di-Arginine that is bonded to Malic Acid for superior absorption and performance. Nitrous Malate is “real world proven”; it is often regarded as the single most potent ingredient available for increasing NO production, muscle pumps and vascularity. In fact, Nitrous is so potent that it is often sold as a single ingredient, yet handily outperforms far more expensive, multi ingredient blends.

Ornithine
Lightning then incorporates Ornithine into the mix. Ornithine is like butter to Arginine’s bread. In fact, the bulk of the human studies involving NO producing ingredients have centered around the old ever-reliable 1-2 punch of Arginine and Ornithine. And the result is always the same: Arginine and Ornithine in the precise ratios increases strength, LBM, and growth hormone output.

Nitrous Malate and Ornithine alone would be a decent NO product, but we decided to add another keystone ingredient to the mix; Glycerol Mono Stearate, aka GMS.

Omega Sports was the first company to recognize the potential of GMS to bodybuilding applications. Since then, countless other companies have been incorporating it into their products for one simple reason: it flat out works…it’s like dropping a supercharger into your already tricked out sports car! GMS has the ability to “super-hydrate” your muscles and effectively lowers the needed dose of other ingredients, as well as increases cell volume to enhance the anabolic response of exercise or weightlifting. Users of GMS report substantially increased muscle fullness, vascularity, and endurance not to mention absolutely sick pumps. To put it plainly, we believe the precise mix of Nitrous, Ornithine and GMS is the perfect blend to start out the perfect NO product.

We then rounded out Lightning by assembling the Max-Sorb Delivery Matrix.

By utilizing the MSDM, we are able to realize the full potential of NO…more so than any other product to date, for sure.

Cnidium Monneri
Nitric Oxide stimulates cGMP production, which is largely responsible for increased blood flow (pump) and cell volumization of NO products. Cnidium has been shown to effectively inhibit PDE-5, which is the enzyme responsible for binding to and destroying cGMP. What this means in a nutshell is Cnidium prolongs and intensifies all of the good things associated with NO production.

Vanadyl Sulfate
Vanadyl Sulfate has been around for quite some time. Some of its benefits include helping regulate the body's healthy blood sugar levels, similar to insulin. Studies show that vanadyl sulfate mainly helps the muscle cells uptake glucose. Basically, by mimicking the actions of insulin, vanadyl sulfate forces more proteins, amino acids, and carbohydrates directly into muscles. It is important to get the right dose of vanadyl; most products contain only 5-10mg whereas 25mg is needed to produce the desired effects.

L-Norvaline
L-Norvaline is an analog of the branched chain amino acid Valine. L-Norvaline inhibits the arginase enzyme thus increasing arginine concentrations for enhanced conversion to nitric oxide.

Rutaecarpine
Rutaecarpine is a potent constituent of the Chinese herb, Evodia Rutaecarpa, which amplifies the vasodilation response, leading to cGMP formation and an increase in vasodilation. Also, Rutaecarpine increases Ca2+ in endothelial cells and in vascular smooth muscle cells, which produce a two pronged vasodilatation effect. In fact, studies have shown that Rutaecarpine can raise NO levels by over 90%.

So you can see how the Max-Sorb Matrix amplifies, sustains, and prolongs the effects of the Pump Matrix…we have covered every angle to create a perpetual cycle of NO in your system!

NO has now reached its full potential for optimal muscle growth and recovery in the form of Omega Sports Lightning.

Directions:
As a dietary supplement, consume 4 capsules approximately 40 minutes prior to working out with 16 ounces of water. On non-training days, consume 4 caps at preferably the same time of day as the training day dose. For the ultimate in muscle pump and endurance, an 8 cap dose is recommended. Always start with the lower dosing to assess tolerance. Lightening has been specifically formulated to stack with Cre-Ethyl Thunder for the ultimate in non-hormonal induced gains in lean muscle mass, strength, and muscle pump and endurance.

Serving Size: 4 Capsules
Servings per Container: 60
Amount per Serving:

Quick Strike Pump Matrix – 2700mg -- Proprietary Blend of: Di-Arginine Malate, Glycerol Mono Stearate, Ornithine HCL
Max-Sorb Delivery Matrix – 132.5mg -- Proprietary Blend of: R-Alpha Lipoic Acid, Cnidium Monneri, Vanadyl Sulfate, L-Norvaline, Rutaecarpine

Pharmacological Effects of Rutaecarpine, an
Alkaloid Isolated from Evodia rutaecarpa
Joen-Rong Sheu


Effects of arginine and ornithine on strength, lean body mass and urinary hydroxyproline in adult males.

Elam RP, Hardin DH, Sutton RA, Hagen L.

"Twenty-two adult males participated in a 5 week progressive strength training program. One half the subjects received the amino acids L-arginine and L-ornithine and the other half, a placebo. The study used a double blind protocol so that subjects as well as investigators had no knowledge of which substances were being administered. Dosages amounted to 2 grams or 1 gram each of L-arginine and L-ornithine, and 600 mg of calcium and 1 gram of Vitamin C as placebos. These supplements were taken orally for a total of 25 administrations. Following the short term strength program using progressively high intensities, tests were taken for total strength (TS), lean body mass (LBM) and urinary hydroxyproline (UH).

The results from ANOVA showed that subjects who were taking the arginine-ornithine combination scored significantly higher in TS and LBM (p less than .05), and significantly lower in UH (p less than .05), than subjects on placebos.

It was concluded that arginine and ornithine taken in prescribed doses can, in conjunction with a high intensity strength training program, increase TS (Total Strength) and LBM (Lean Body Mass) in a relatively short period of time. Arginine and ornithine also aid in recovery from chronic stress by quelling tissue breakdown as evidenced by lower UH levels."

Finally, matpal to the rescue... it's about time! j/k :D

I can't wait to give a complete and honest log of my experiences with thunder and lightning.

A few questions which you were probably going to instruct us on anyway:

There is no "wait 60 mins after having a meal" to take either of these pre-workout like some other NO type products, because my body reacts well to a whey/oat shake about 60-90 mins prior to training?

Should we stack a bulk CEE for post-workout?

What dosage of the lightning should we start with (how long to increase and at which increments)?

Thanks in advance.

I'm experienced enough to know about the placebo effect and actually despise peoples logs who pre-hype the product. Just because I am eager to try these, it has no bearing on any pre-conceived notion that they will work well, trust me. I am all for 100% honest reviews as first hand experience is a great tool for everyone on these boards, and I will not give a "satisfied or not satisfied" conclusion until my log is completely finished.

Thanks though.

Sweet....Lightning looks awsome...Im suprised there is GMS in it since there is already Glycerol in Thunder...but the more the merrier I guess.

Im happy to see Cnidium, R-ALA, Vanadyl Sulfate, and L- Norvaline are in this, but I figured there woulda been Citrulline Malate in it...although Im not complaining!!

The price and serving look great too!!!

All in all the Lightning/Thunder stack seems very nice!!

If you can take that many caps, by all means...it is a great stack. I do this myself with 6 Power Jolt instead of 4 so that is 22 caps all together. Not too bad once you get used to it and it forces you to drink more water which is a good thing with all the GMS you get.

I don't think so: The max amount of Vanadyl by ITSELF is 20 mg's, often times 2-10 mg's. This also means the Norvaline and Rutawhatever will be less than 10 mg's a piece. Not sure whether 25-30 mg's of Cnidium is gonna be sufficienr or not, but that still leaves plenty of room for 60-75 mg's R-ala.


75 mg's r-ala+10 mg's Vanadyl Sulfate will be a pretty potent combo for glucose disposal/pumps, however you wanna say it.

also pu was taking 75-100 mg of cnidium in his log

Well, I didn't say it was a lot. Also, this isn't a R-ala supplement.

I think it will be enough of everything for a good pump. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

If you look at the individual ingredients, ecspeciall the last two, they ae active in extremely small doses. Also, we do recomend doubling the dose for maximum effects...you will still get a full 30 days at double the dose.
