Nitrix is the real deal. It is not a protein shake or glutamine or nitric oxide or any other baloney sold in the magazines. It is a potent oral steroid which will give you lean muscular gains in a short time frame. By all accounts Nitrix gives much the same muscle building benefits (without the harsh sides) as the illegal oral steroid Nitrix. Because it is so effective care should be given to how you take it, who takes it, and the length of time you take it.
