HARRISON, N.Y., Oct. 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Nutrition21, LLC ("Nutrition21") has announced today that its clinically substantiated Nitrosigine® ingredient has been added to GAT Sports' revamped Nitraflex line. The latest version of Nitraflex provides intense pumps and improves energy, strength, focus and stamina. It also emphasizes the pre-workout benefits of Nitrosigine.
One of GAT's longest-running supplements, Nitraflex maintains many of the same ingredients as its previous formula. A couple of key differences in the new formula put it over the top—the addition of Nitrosigine, extra citrulline, and the same great tasting flavors that athletes love, according to the company.
Nitrosigine is a patented complex of arginine and silicon that is supported by 30 research studies. This safe, non-stimulant and effective ingredient is easy to formulate into a wide variety of products that support performance with unique benefits important to serious athletes.
Nitrosigine is scientifically engineered to work in as little as 15 minutes and last up to six hours. One study showed that Nitrosigine significantly increased nitric oxide (NO) levels, which is a key facilitator of greater blood flow and vasodilation in working muscles. Blood flow is critical during resistance and endurance training because it allows oxygen and nutrients to be delivered to working muscles. Enhanced blood flow is important in both intra-workout and post-workout.
"Being included in such a well-established sports nutrition line like Nitraflex demonstrates the importance of clinically-studied ingredients," said Todd Spear, Vice President of Sales, Nutrition21. "GAT Sport obviously sees huge potential in Nitrosigine, which is the only new ingredient in the company's revamped line."
"With the 2020 remastered version of our flagship, Nitraflex, we have chosen Nitrosigine to accompany pure citrulline in what we consider a perfect one-two punch for nitric oxide potentiation in everyone's quest of achieving the perfect 'pump,'" said Max Fairchild, Director of Innovation, GAT Sport. "We feel it is the only form of arginine available on the market with adequate clinical data to support inclusion in this highly competitive sports supplement industry, and more specifically, pre-workout performance."
