Creatine Nitrate: An Unstoppable Bond
CN3 is a pre-workout supplement that features Creatine Nitrate—a super compound formed when Creatine is bonded with Nitrate. Creatine Nitrate produces two desirable effects on performance: Creatine for strength and Nitrate for pumps. Previously, you would have to stack Nitric Oxide supplements with Creatine to achieve the desired effects. Now, you get both in one powerful ingredient.*
Creatine Monohydrate: Building Up Supplement Stacks
Creatine Monohydrate has long been an integral part of muscle building stacks due to its positive influence on training. Creatine Monohydrate improves muscle energy and performance, promotes faster recovery, draws water into the muscle to facilitate protein synthesis, and ultimately improves the body’s ability to pack on lean muscle.
Creatine Monohydrate is one of the most clinically researched dietary supplements in the history of sports nutrition, and its effects are undeniable. Many have tried to improve upon this exceptional ingredient but virtually all have failed to deliver on their promises...until now.*

Say Yes to 'NO'
Dietary Nitrate, as found in foods such as green leafy vegetables, has been shown to have a positive impact on performance. When bound to Creatine and consumed in the form of CN3, the Nitrate will convert to Nitric Oxide (NO) in the body. Higher levels of NO in the body produce more oxygen in the blood, and ultimately help promote better muscular endurance, pumps, and overall performance.*
University Studied – Better Lean Mass Builder
In a university study, Creatine Nitrate was shown to be more effective at building lean muscle mass vs. a placebo.* CN3 is ideal for men and women who want to improve their strength, muscular endurance, and lean muscle gains.*

CN3 is the creatine supp that has been needed in the market. By bonding creatine with Nitrate, I get to enjoy a great strength boost, while getting a killer pump. I am basing this off of my first usage of the product in addition to my usual pre. I tried the Cherry Limeade flavor and the flavor was tart the first sip, however the rest was smooth and easy for me to down. I mixed it in with about 8 ounces of water and it was completely mixed with 3 shakes (no blender ball). I did whole upper body that day and had a pump that started within my first workout. While I am naturally vascular, my pump was noticeably different to both me and my lifting partner. I noticed my muscle fatigue was less than normal and I maintained my strength slightly better than normal. With continued use, I expect to see even better strength gains compared to normal. I hadn’t experienced any adverse side effects either, as I had with some other creatine products out on the market. Honestly for the price I am paying now to get both a NO supplement and a good creatine on their own, it’s a solid pick up (almost a no brainer)to get CN3 instead.

Profile: Serving size 5g-5 kcals, 1g carb. 500mg Vitamin c, Creatine Nitrate (N03-T) 3g. Mixability: 10/10. I simply mixed in about 6oz of water in a cup and just swirled it around. Dissolved perfectly with no clumps. Taste: 9/10 I was really surprised about how good this tasted. Straight up tasted like a cheery limeade kool-aid. Was delicious and actually made me wanting more. I will say that if you do not mix it with enough water it can be very very tart. Effectiveness: 8/10 I was given two samples to try. Day one I trained chest, and shoulders. I did notice a bit more of a pump, and a bit more of endurance to push through and add in more sets. Day two I trained Back, with a lighter bicep workout. I also decided to stack the Cn3 with Vasky from MTS. HUGE difference. Pumps and endurance were much much greater than when taking either by them-self. This made it feel more like a solid product that wanted me to make it part of my daily arsenal. Cost: for 45 servings at the pre-sale price is 29.99 which comes to about 65cents a serving. Which is actually pretty inexpensive for a 2-in-1 product. My overall grade for this product on its own would be a 8/10. Good, simple, great tasting product. It is effective as a non-stim pre workout pump product, that with extended use will assist with some nice solid gains in muscle, since it is a creatine product at its core. My only neg on this would be it seems to be a better product to add to a stack...which in turn makes me spend more money on other products, instead of saving money from buying a 2-in-1. I would still recommend this product to those who want to a delicious, effective creatine, with some added pumps.

First Off I want to rate the flavor of this product! Fruit Punch- 5/5- No surprise to me that this tasted great, very sweet, mixes very red and doesn't clump nor settle it mixes great and evenly . All of cellucor's products for year have tasted top of the notch. I like that this really taste like a sugary Drink IMO, you feel like it has to have added fillers but it doesn't, Whoever does cellucors flavoring NEEDS A RAISE after I tried this product. Cost- 4.5/5- I think for what your getting its a great value, its more the just creapure. It wil be $.65 cents per serving before any of the deals that cellucor always runs( BOGO , 25%off etc) I think this is going to sell out really quick Formula- 4.5/5- This is nothing fancy they aren't trying to hide or make insane claims, it says strength and pump formula. So I have never used any other creatine that has really claimed that so it was interesting. 3 g creatine nitrate, and 500mg of vitamin c. I know that people have love nitrates for pumps and I can say this is one of those products people love. The vitamin C great for the body everyone pretty much knows that. So I would say this is a great easily stackable+add on to other products that don't have a full dose of creatine or using creatine free pre workout. Pumps/ Workouts- Let me start out by saying I have used this two ways. Fasted- sometimes with work I just don't have time to eat and it would be easier to just wake up and go, So I'll take this 30 minutes pre workout with my normal pre workout(nothing has changed about that while using this product DISCLAIMER) So same constants, no changing variables. And I can say that increases pumps, and strength in the 2.5 + weeks I have been using it. After eating one meal then taking 30 minutes after finishing- Still get a good pump but I think it is better fasted. This could be just me but I like/feel pre workout in general better on a fully empty stomach. WHAT TO EXPECT- expect a great tasting supplement, that will provide you will a fuller look/feel. Along with that with proper diet+training you will get stronger. Which as someone who considers themself a strength athlete is huge. AS A WHOLE- another good product from cellucor, they just don't stop to keep coming out with good products at a good price, that people continue to buy. has to be one of the reasons people like myself keep going back

If your looking for a pre workout that is caffeine free and gives you a crazy pump, LOOK NO MORE! First out the pack it mixes great and has a similar taste to C4. I did notice a slight creamy after taste (probably the creatine). next if your a fan of No3 you will love this it gave me an insane pump it's very effective in that manner. Being that I only had a single serving its hard to judge how well the creatine worked but I'm sure the combo over time is great! I recommend this to anyone looking to stack creatine and a nitric oxide booster or someone just looking to get an insane pump and pack on muscle. Taste:9/10 Mixability:10/10 Effectiveness:10//10

Taste (9.5/10): The cherry limeade flavor was refreshing and tasty. Even when I opened the sample pack there was a very strong scent of cherry limeness. I thought the taste was kind of strong even though I have used the recommended amount of water. It had both a tart and sweet flavor which I enjoyed. From past experience, I have always been able to finish my pre-workout drinks from Cellucor before I start my workout. But with this product I felt every time I took a sip my throat was drying out and finished it a bit later after my warm ups. Must have been the tartness in the flavor and drink. Still was very drinkable and wasn't a problem. Mixability (10/10): I have used one serving packet with 10 oz. of water in my shaker. In just a few seconds the powder mixed very well with the water. There were no grams and grains anywhere in my shaker. It was very clean and the mixing was always spot on with Cellucor. Don''t need to shake or stir very hard for this product to blend with he water. Energy and Focus (10/10): I have drank the CN3 30 mins. before my workout. While sipping it on my way to the gym I could clearly feel the energy and focus coming in. I felt really prepared and motivated to workout. Must have been the great dosage of the Vitamin C along with the Creatine Nitrate. The rush of energy and focus was getting stronger which has lasted throughout my entire workout. My resting periods were very low in between my sets and exercises. Even when I was done with those sets and exercises during my workout I felt desired to do a lot more to push myself further. I thought I would crash later after my workout because of all this intense energy and focus, but surprisingly I did not crash at all or felt exhausted. Strength (10/10): The strength I had were excellent. During my workouts, I have been able to lift heavier in my sets and exercises. I was also able to get in an extra set or two in some of them. Like I have said before I was eager to do more even if they were heavy or drop sets. Pumps (10/10): The muscle pumps I had were quick, skin tightening and gorging. In the beginning of my workout, I could already feel the pumps coming in quickly. The muscle pumps were getting bigger till it's fullest. I always know how big and tight my muscle pumps are supposed to be. But when I tried this product even for the first time I noticed and felt they were almost past what they normally would be in a typical normal workout. I felt really good and the Creatine Nitrate definitely did support me on this. Formula (10/10): Even though there were not too many ingredients in this specific product compared to other Cellucor products I still like how it is formulated. The Creatine Nitrate is my favorite ingredient because of the strength and muscle pumps that are provided to me in my workouts. Also I do not feel too bloated or really eager to rush to the bathroom compared to other pre-workouts with other Creatine ingredients. The Vitamin C was also terrific as well because not only do I get more of my daily vitamins in but I felt the great amount of energy and recovery during my workout.

Flavor: Cherry Limeade. 9/10 - I don't give out 10s much unless Strawberry Margarita haha but this flavor was as beast!!! The cherry limeade flavor is amazing, I used a serving scoop in about 8oz of water. I am a huge fan of Cellucors preworkout powders and this wasn't doesn't fail me too the least. CN3 mixes well with products from Cellucor but be careful to read the ingredients because too much isn't good. The Limeade is a little tad stronger than the cherry but has a great taste. Mixability: 8/10 - was a little bit thick had a tad of powder remaining. The water I use is almost freezing but I shaked and mixed around for my normal routine and a little bit of powder was remaining. Pump: 8/10 - excellent pump As a standalone the Cn3 delivers very well. I don't like to take many drinks for pre workout so this product would work great for me. You feel the Nitrate kicking in and excels to the max. Overall: First off thank you Cellucor for making another excellent product, the Nitrates and Creatine here work tremendously. Not even that the flavor is a great starting point as well as it tastes amazing. But we are all here for the pre workout and getting the pumps and routines in, I give this product a thumbs up!!!

I normally use C4 for my preworkout and plain creatine mono for my late night lifts. CN3 is perfect, and even better than CM, for late night workouts. The pump is comparable to C4 and you get the benefits of creatine mono all in one. CN3 is a great supplement for those who lift late at night or who cannot handle or don't like stimulants. The price is super cheap, which is an added bonus! The flavor and mixability are both up to par with Cellucor's supps.

Incredibly versatile and inexpensive product. Cellucor is already known for their flavoring (which is off the chart), but also the efficacy of the products. I found the same in CN3, as it gave me some crazy pumps and also endurance for my workout. Great product to take alone as a PWO, or to stack with other great products like Alpha Amino, Cor-BCAA, C4 etc. Highly recommend this product to anyone and everyone.

Taste: 10/10 Well i have to admite i have pretty high standards when it comes to Cellucors flavoring skills. They are always on point and taste great. This product was no exception. The Cherry Limeade was amazing. I mixed it with the recommended amount of water (10oz) The flavor to me was right on. Not too sweet and not too tart. Mixability 10/10 Like i stated in the last section i Mixed it with 10oz of water in a shaker cup. There was very little to zero grit at the bottom of my cup when it settled. I have to give a perfect mixability score of 10. Pumps.9.5/10 I used my CN3 approx. 20 min after a quick meal of some delete ham and turkey with no bread. The pumps mid-workout were crazy! I've taken all sorts of pre-workouts that give me a pump but this one just feels different and fuller. I figured i'd train arms on the day i use it so i could truly judge the pump factor. My bi's and tri's were so pumped that i couldn't fully extend or bend my arms...which is a good problem to have! so it gets a very high pump score. Formula 9/10 The formula here is quite simple Creatine Nitrate and VitC. I say as long as it works it doesn't matter how many ingredients it has! The CN packs an awesome pump! Side Effects 10/10 The only side effect you'll get from this is an amazing, skin tearing pumps! No crash and no jittery feeling Overall 9.5/10 I only had the chance to try one serving so i can't tell you much more than i just did. I will tell you though that just using it that one time i truly felt the effects its supposed to have and if you're out there looking for a great pre-workout with no stimulants in it, then this is the one for you!

Cellucor's CN3 Packaging: 8/10 I'm still on the fence on Cellucors' new packaging. A like the shiny silver tub, I just think there is too much of it. Would like a little more black BUT who cares really?? What really matters is what's inside the tub! The scoop handle is pretty short but I don't think it will be huge problem for most folks out there. Comes with a pillow pack as well to keep the powder from clumping. Although CN3 clearly states, "DO NOT EXCEED 1 SCOOP PER DAY" I wish it came with a warning about combining CN3 with other nitrate containing products. Maybe this will get addressed in the future. Taste: 8/10 I usually don't like Fruit Punch flavors, period. I always loathe getting a sample of a Fruit Punch flavored product. Every now and then a product surprises me and CN3 was one of them. Don't get me wrong, it won't make me purchase Fruit Punch flavored supps for now on but I honestly can enjoy this taste. Very refreshing with ice, can sip on it if I wanted. Almost taste like actual Fruit Punch on a hot day. In 10oz of water, way too strong of a taste, like a smack in the face. As I continued to play around with the water amount for the first wk I discovered that the average water bottle (16oz) provided the perfect amount of water for me. Not that smack in the face boldness taste but the refreshing taste I was talking about prior. My go-to was 16oz + 1 handful of ice. This past wk I've been throwing 1 scoop CN3 + handful of ice + 1 cup frozen mixed fruit + 1 banana and it was awesome. The Fruit Punch flavor still took over most of the taste but it was good nonetheless. Dosage: 9.5/10 Honestly, what product out there gives you 3g of Creatine nitrate?? I couldn't find any. An awesome dose of nitrates! I personally prefer nitrates for pumps and CN3 provides a lot of it! Most people would be wise to start off with 1/2 scoop first and see how they react to the nitrates in this product. The only reason this doesn't get a 10/10 is because there is less then 3g of pure Creatine Mono meaning on workout days you will likely need to find a way to get 1-2g of extra Creatine. Mixibilty: 9.5/10 A tiny bit foamy at the top every time but nothing that would dissolve if you wait a little bit. Glass, shaker cup, blender, it didn't matter, it mixed well every time. I usually shake my blender bottle for 12-15 secs no matter what I'm using based off of habit. Mixed well. Formula: 8.5/10 I wanted to give it a higher rating but again the Creatine amount is what takes it down a notch. If I'm not mistaken, Creatine Nitrate is around 66% Creatine meaning that CN3 provides around 2g Creatine (correct me if I'm wrong?). Again, this means some people may want to throw in some extra Creatine (1-2g) on their workout days with CN3. I love the amount of nitrates in this product per scoop! Higher in 1 scoop than other nitrate containing products. Lastly, throw some Vitamin C to help with nitrate tolerance and overall this is a straight forward but effective formula for its intended purpose. Workout reaction: 9/10. I will touch on pumps and some power output/strength aspects. **But I will say, CN3 delivered better in a Fasted state compared to a fed state IF I had a complete meal of each macro less than 2 hrs pre-workout. NOW, when I had ONLY some carbs via mixed fruit and a banana I noticed the same or even better pumps compared to the fasted state** Pumps/vascularity: 9.5/10 Pumps were spot on every time! Took about 1-2 exercises (6-8 sets) to get a good pump going. My favorite was leg days. After a session of legs, my upper body would look somewhat pumped as well. Vascularity in the forearms was definitely improved as well when using CN3. I've been doing cardio post strength training and when I was done I was still decently pumped every time. The half life of nitrates keep you pumped after training so it was nice going into work with a solid pump still. My CN3 stack experiences: CN3 + 10-12oz water = stronger/faster pumps BUT stronger taste CN3 + 16-20oz water = better taste BUT pumps took a little longer and pump was not quite as strong until later in the workout CN3 + bulk Agmatine = slight increase in pumps CN3 + bulk Citrulline = felt a more painful contraction (in a good way) CN3 + GlycerGrow 2 = strong pumps + the look of full muscle (from the GMS). This was my favorite combo for looking pumped in the mirror. Strength/Power Output: 8/10 I didn't really notice extra strength or power out put per-se when using CN3 bc I already take Creatine via Ergonine. But at the very least I didn't notice any decreases or anything either. Strength has been slightly up the past 2 months despite being a caloric deficit and adding cardio so at the very least CN3 kept my strength up and steady. Cost: 9/10 $0.66 per scoop is more than fair IMO for what you get. For 45 servings I think $29.99 is a solid price. More than a months worth of product and for many who only need 1/2 scoop that = $0.33. Doesn't get much better than that. Throw it in with a stim pre-workout or a non stim pre (Ergonine like me) and your good to go. **just don't add it with any other nitrate containing products** Recommend: 9/10 I highly recommend this product to those who need some extra Creatine and pumps during their workout! BUT, I would recommend primarily to those who have knowledge of nitrates and would be smart enough to either start at 1/2 scoop or at the very least, know not to stack CN3 with other nitrate containing products. Overall: 9.5/10 For its intended purpose, CN3 is very effective IMO. Most people will only need 1/2 scoop for pumps so that will lead to the tub lasting 90 days as opposed to 45 (which is already a generous amount of dosages). A straight forward product that delivers on its intended purposes! Anybody who chases the pumps and has some knowledge of nitrates should give CN3 a shot. On its own it delivers. CN3 is currently my favorite product that Cellucor has produced!

CN3 is a pre-workout supplement that features Creatine Nitrate—a super compound formed when Creatine is bonded with Nitrate. Creatine Nitrate produces two desirable effects on performance: Creatine for strength and Nitrate for pumps. Previously, you would have to stack Nitric Oxide supplements with Creatine to achieve the desired effects. Now, you get both in one powerful ingredient." - from the Cellucor website. I will be rating this review based on Mixability, Ingredient Profile, Taste, Cost, and Pumps and Vascularity. I followed the directions on the package and used the dosage of 1 scoop per 10 ounces of water. I used this in the early mornings in a fasted state. Mix ability 10/10 As with most Cellucor products they pride themselves on how easy they mix up. CN3 was no exception. As soon as you pour the scoop into the water you can immediately see it start to dissolves. I only had to give the shaker a couple of shakes and it was complety dissolved. Taste 8.5/10 I usually not a big fan of Fruit Punch flavors, I have some that are so sickening sweet that taste awful. CN3 surprised me in that it was refreshing with a crispness to it. It kind of reminding me of Hawaii Punch in regards of something I compare it to. In 10oz of water, one scoop was perfect and it was a pleasure to drink. Ingredient Profile 10/10 I had to do some research on some of this cause I am not much on latest research. Creatine Nitrate 3g – From what I read Creatine bound to nitrate will enhance muscle strength and endurance along with increasing muscle volume and recovery speed. Vitamin C 500mg – Is known for antioxidant benefits, immune system support, nitric oxide production, and help prevent nitrate build up or tolerance. Cost 10/10 The cost per container is around $30 for 45 serving. That is around sixty cents per serving and to me that is a great deal. I am sure that bb.com and Cellucor will have periotic sales on this that you can use to get it at a discounted rate. Pumps and Vascularity 10/10 Since I work out in the mornings I take this as 30 minutes before I work out in a fasted state. The first time I used this was during a leg day and I did not notice much vascularity in the workout but my legs felt huge. It was during most of the upper body days such as chest day and arm and shoulder day did I see how much increase vascularity I had. During those day by the time my workouts were finished I had veins popping and feeling huge. I been taking this for two weeks now and I have noticed a huge strength change and have even got a bench PR after I have been stuck at certain weight for a while. Overall this is a very good product from Cellucor it has been a perfect addition for my stim break that I am on. I would gladly recommend this to everyone.

Taste Cherry Limeade is unreal. Crazy smooth and delicious taste. I mixed 1 scoop in about 4 oz of water and it was on point. I like the flavor to be stronger so I go with a small amount of water so depending on what you prefer I would go with more than that. Mixability As with pretty much every Cellucor product I have tried, it mixes extremely well with no clumping or residue whatsoever. Goes down smooth every time! Even with the small amount of water I used it was still great. If you go with 8+ oz then you will definitely have no issues. Dosing 1 scoop pre-workout and mixed with your pre-workout of choice about 30 minutes prior to gainz was the sweet spot for me. Keep in mind I also eat an extremely high carb meal about 2 hours prior to training and nitrates are better absorbed on a more empty stomach. Formula Now I never used Creatine Nitrate on its own before so when I would use C4 I couldn't tell what it was doing because I would always take agmatine and usually more nitrates (whoops). Its nice to see the added Vitamin C as well so as to help prevent a build up tolerance to nitrates. Overall a very solid product and from the prices I'm seeing around the web, very affordable too. Pumps. The one we all care about. I made sure I took this as a standalone and didn't stack this with any other pump products so I could get a good idea of how well it worked. From what I noticed, it seemed to yield a very solid pump (my pre-workout meal did not contain much sodium either). I'm not a pump chaser either. I stick to specific training programs and focus on hitting my numbers so I don't always get an intense pump while I'm at the gym. However, the couple times I used this product, I got a very nice pump. I'm not going to sit here and say it was an epic, skin splitting pump, but it was very solid. To sum it up, I would recommend this to anyone who wants to add nitrates into your supplement regime for increased performance or in the more simple case, a nice pump to get the ladies looking.

Taste 8/10 -Taste is obviously subjective, but for me this did taste like a cherry limeade should taste. I am not a big fan of anything cherry so I would not prefer to use the cherry limeade flavor. It goes down smooth and easy and is not something that makes you want to hold your nose or mix with other things to hide the taste. Mixability 10/10 -This product did mix without a problem at all. Just a few quick stirs with a little bit of water and it was ready to go. I have no had a problem mixing any kinds of supplements lately among most brands so this should be no surprise. Effectiveness 10/10 -I did not expect to get much of a pump out of this. I have taken pre workouts in the past that included creatine nitrate and was skeptical. I did a chest workout when I used this and did feel like I was pumped the whole time after my first lift. I know the CN3 is what caused this because I did not take my N03 chrome that day. The pump was the kind of pump you would expect after a drop set, but I had it the entire lift. Ingredients -The label says that this product is only vitamin c and creatine nitrate. This is nice because you can tell right off the bat if this product will be suitable for you. This is a stim free product that can be stacked with just about anything.

Smell: 9/10 Cracked the tub open and it had a somewhat creamy smell to it. It was almost like a cherry starburst in a way. The cherry had a faint vanilla or cream aroma to it, which was pretty pleasant smelling. It really made me wonder how it would taste. Taste: 10/10 It tastes like fruit snacks minus the fake aftertaste! I initially went with the recommended 8 or so oz of water and it needed more. The flavoring iis strong! If you don’t add enough water it can be quite tart, which I didn’t enjoy too much. After adding another couple oz of water, it was delicious. Profile: 10/10 There’s nothing too fancy about this product. It is creatine nitrate and vitamin c lol. No hidden stuff in there, so no worries on the stim front--there aren’t any. That’s what I truly like about this product. It’s hard to find a pump product that doesn’t contain any stims. I prefer to get my caffeine from a good old cup of joe. Since I typically train in the evenings, it’s good to find a product that won’t hinder my sleep. Effectiveness: 9/10 It does what it’s supposed to do. It’s a creatine product. Did I notice an increase in pump? Yes, but it was slight. It’s not like taking an NO product and feeling a crazy pump right off the bat. This is a slow build. Give it about 5-7 days and you will feel the effects. So why a 9/10? Because it didn’t cripple me with pumps (although I did have a crazy low back pump one day). Overall: 9/10 Great product, and I love the way it tastes. This is certainly geared toward someone who is in the market for a delicious, stim free creatine product.

Taste Cherry Limeade – 10/10 This could possibly be the best supplement I have ever tasted. I have mixed in 1 scoop with 8 ounces of water and the taste was just incredible. I hope Cellucor extends this flavors into their other products. Mixability 10/10 I have mixed this in my shaker with 8 ounces with around 5 seconds of shaking and everything dissolved. No problems mixing at all. Workout Reaction 9/10 I used this with shoulder training and arm training. Both days I was working in the 10-12 for most of the movements. During warming up I started to feel the pump coming on in the targeted area. Mid way through the pump was full blown. Summary – I would definitely recommend this product. Everything is on point ncluding price per serving. I will be buying this in the future and also looking for the flavor to hit Cellucor’s other products.

Cherry Limeade is a new flavor off the Cellucor line found in C4 ripped and now CN3. If you have not tried it this may be one of Cellucor’s best. Right away you get a mouthful of a dense cherry flavor with refreshing limeade after taste. It is like Cellucor crushed a cherry on top of a sundae and then washed it down with a fresh squeezed lemon limeade flavoring. I have tried mixing this in a blender bottle with 8,10,12 oz of water, and each time there was no problems. The powder started to dissolve upon mixing the product, and the powder hitting the water. After about 10-15 seconds of shaking there was no clumps or leftover powder in the shaker. It was totally dissolved and left nothing behind.. Cellucor CN3 is a very basic Creatine Nitrate and Vitamin C Mixutre. The Vitamin C is used to help prevent nitrate build up over continued use. The Creatine Nitrate is also featured in Cellucor C4, C4 Mass, and M5 Reloaded. This is one of Cellucor’s trademark nitrates that will help increase pump and performance in the gym

TASTE - I tried the Cherry Limeade flavor of CN3 and the flavor was OUTSTANDING. It’s not normal for me to like any kind of limeade but this product tasted amazing and tasted just like the label intended it would taste like. The after taste was a little sour and made my lips pucker but that happens to me with almost any flavored product. Most times, I am unsure whether to try products because you never know what they’re going to taste like but do not hesitate to buy this product! MIXABILITY - This product mixed very well with the 6 oz of water I put mixed it with. It dissolved completely, which was great! There was no powder residue. It’ll look just like a juice - that’s how well it mixed! SIDE EFFECTS - I did not have any side effects of strange reactions/feelings. I might have felt some kind of “bad” side effect if I would’ve taken it with another product, like pre workout. I wish I would’ve have mixed with a pre workout but I was in a rush and forgot to bring it to the gym with me. Depending upon your tolerance to the ingredients in the product AND a pre workout product, then you can determine whether or not you should take both. PRICE - The price is great for the amount you get in the container. $50 for 45 servings can’t be beat! That’s about $1.11 a serving! Some products equivalent to CN3 don’t offer a price with great! RESULTS - My pump was awesome! Though I still wish I would have taken it with a pre workout, it was great. There are no negative outcomes except I wish my overall energy and pump would have been amplified just a little bit more. I took it before crossfit on a back squat PR day and just needed an extra energy. With the pre workout, I think my workout would’ve incredible. I wish I had the chance to sample and try this product again, that way I could see the different effect it had w/ the pre workout mixed with it.

I have to say, this is a straightforward solid and cost effective pump product which has the additional benefit of providing a good amount of creatine. Add an additional 1-2 grams of creatine to this and you will have a full dose creatine for the day! Flavouring is PHENOMENAL as per usual with Cellucor products. Pumps are quite excellent and worthy of joining the ranks of C4 IMO. Price is also excellent seeing how it's 45 servings per tub and 1 scoop is really all you need for that pump in the gym.
