- The Strongest Nitric Oxide Product on the Market
- More Skin Bursting Pumps than Ever Before
- Deeper Muscle Simulation
- Easily Absorbed in the Digestive Tact
- More Resistant to Chemical Breakdown
- Great for Nitric Oxide Non-Responders
NE2™ (Arginine Ethyl Ester Di-Hydrochloride) is composed of an arginine molecule that is more
easily absorbed and more resistant to chemical breakdown in the body. It is an
arginine derivative, so the performance enhancing effects will be similar to
those of other regular arginine products, but many times stronger.
It is well known that other arginine products are effective for promoting muscle
growth and enhancing the pump you get from working out. Muscle growth and
cellular function are positively influenced by arginine, via the NO pathway. But
other arginine products are limited in their effectiveness. Limited absorption
through the intestine has plagued other arginine products since they were first
released. Regular L-arginine is rapidly degraded in the intestine, leaving only
trace amounts of the ingested dose active. Because of the rapid breakdown of L-arginine
in the intestine, its ability to promote muscle growth is very limited. Time
release formulas and arginine alpha-ketoglutarate (AKG) molecules were developed
to combat the limited absorption of L-arginine, and these formulas are somewhat
effective methods of arginine supplementation. NE2™ has been developed and
vigorously tested, and NE2™ provides an amazingly effective way to experience the
benefits of arginine supplementation, better than anything that has been
The reason NE2™ is much more effective than other nitric oxide products is the
ethyl ester added to the arginine molecule. The ethyl ester makes the arginine
less polar and therefore more easily absorbed in the digestive tract. Because of
this design, NE2™ can pass through the intestine largely intact without the need
of traditional amino acid transport. The ethyl ester
also protects the arginine molecule from rapid degradation, and therefore makes
it much more effective in smaller doses than other nitric oxide products. NE2™ is
superior in design to all other current arginine products on the market and
after one week of use, you will experience the difference! If you are ready for
crazy skin bursting pumps and record muscle growth, then you are ready for NE2™.
As a dietary supplement, take 2-3 capsules (with 16oz of water) twice daily on an empty stomach.
Take one serving 30-60 minutes prior to training. Space both servings 6-8 hours apart.
Non workout days:
Take one serving upon waking and an additional serving 6-8 hours later.
For Best Results:
Use in conjunction with a high protein diet, low fat diet. NE2 can be stacked with Axis Labs Creatine Ethyl Ester HCl for added benefit.
NE2 is truly much more potent and better for your investment by far than the old school NO2 formula the other companies are trying to promote. I have tried about half a dozen no2 formals with good results, but after using ne2, there is NO reason for me to go back to that. Pumps are so good it's not even possible to describe here, you have to try it. My strength has also been climbing quicker. Great supplement, ne2 is the future, hear that.
Extremely impressed with the immediate results with ne2. Have been using ne2 now for over 8 months and continue to have daily results before each and every workout. One of the few supplements out there I truly do trust.
