The new Valhalla N.O. Black relies on the synergistic combination of citrulline and arginine. Both active ingredients are amino acids whose blood circulation-promoting effect has been proven several times in studies (1,2,3). In addition, the N.O Black also contains a high dose of glycerin, which optimally complements the active ingredient complex and can also provide a significantly better pump (4). All three ingredients are NanoPure® raw materials, so that unprecedented quality and purity can be ensured and nothing stands in the way of a bursting pump.
In addition to the pump matrix, the new N.O Black also contains the amaranth extract known as red spinach. Studies have shown that amaranth extract is one of the most potent natural sources of nitrate, an ingredient that has a great impact on your workout. It has been proven that under the influence of nitrate you could train longer and harder (5). As a result, the training-induced growth stimulus is also much stronger, and this in turn can have a great impact on muscle growth, helping you to become even stronger and wider.
Another active ingredient that is used in Valhalla N.O. Black and perfectly complements the matrix of ingredients is inulin. Inulin has numerous positive effects on the human body and has been used for years in the medical and supplement industry. In N.O.. Black, the active ingredient ensures that blood sugar levels do not fluctuate too much during your workout and that your stomach does not go crazy (6,7). Both can end your workout prematurely and that would cost you potential gains.
All in all, the new Valhalla N.O. Black is an incredibly potent pump booster due to its combination of active ingredients, which will bring your blood flow in every workout to a completely new level.
So what are you waiting for? Valhalla is calling for you.
Pro Tip: The glycerin contained in the booster works best when you consume it with at least 800ml of water. This is how the potent ingredient unfolds its maximum effect.
It is possible that the new Valhalla N.O. Black may form lumps or stick together. This condition is quite normal and does not result in any change in effect. Since the booster is intended to optimize blood flow during training, it consists largely of glycerin, which is known to bind water. Due to this property, the Valhalla N.O. Black to said adhesions. Glycerin has an enormous effect on blood circulation and is an extremely potent active ingredient when it comes to an optimal pump. For this reason, we accept the changed consistency, but would like to point out that these clumps do not change the effect of the product. The booster works perfectly, even if lumps have formed in the can. However, to avoid them, it is recommended to store the can as protected from light, dry and cool as possible.
Important note for athletes who have to undergo doping tests: Some sports organizations, such as WADA prohibit the use of larger amounts (over 2g of pure glycerin) of glycerin prior to athletic competition, as an increase in blood volume caused by glycerin may mask the use of prohibited performance-enhancing compounds. Please clarify the use of Valhalla N.O. Black™ in advance with your sports organization.
