  • NO Shotgun Study

    From this abstract, one would think this "NO" product was effective. Thus, why some times one must read the full study to really decide the validity of the study, and see if the abstract even matches up to the actual study.

    Main issue with this study is simple: It's impossible to know what in that long formula had the effects (which the authors state in the body of the full study), and the effects on LBM were what you would see with plain old creatine, which the formulas contains.

    Had there been a simple creatine group, would have gotten the same results, perhaps a tad better. There's no reason at all to conclude any "NO" component of the formula had any impact on the results. Looking at the the actual impact on bodycomp, which can only be found in the actual study, it simply confirms to me, get some damn creatine!

    Published: 3 November 2011

    Purpose: The effects of 28 days of heavy resistance training while ingesting the pre- and post-workout supplements, NO-Shotgun(R) and NO-Synthesize(R) were determined on body composition, muscle strength and mass, markers of protein synthesis, and clinical safety markers.

    Methods: Nineteen non-resistance-trained males participated in a resistance training program 4 times/week for 28 days while either ingesting 27 g/day of carbohydrate (CARB) or NO-Shotgun(R) 30 min pre-exercise and 27 g/day of carbohydrate or NO- Synthesize(R) 30 min post-exercise (NOSS). Data were analyzed with separate 2 x 2 ANOVA (p < 0.05).

    Results: Total body mass was increased in both groups (p = 0.001), but not different between groups. Fat mass was unchanged with CARB, but NOSS decreased fat mass (p = 0.026). Both groups increased fat-free mass (p = 0.001); however, the increases were greater with NOSS (p = 0.023). NOSS underwent greater increases in upper-body (p = 0.023) and lower-body (p = 0.035) strength than CARB. Myofibrillar protein significantly increased in both groups (p = 0.041), with NOSS being greater than CARB (p = 0.049). All of the MHC isoforms were significantly increased in both groups; however, NOSS was greater than CARB for MHC 1 (p = 0.013) and MHC 2A (p = 0.046). All of the myogenic regulatory factors were significantly increased in both groups; however, NOSS was greater than CARB for Myo-D (p = 0.038) and MRF-4 (p = 0.001). For the whole blood and serum clinical chemistry markers, all variables remained within normal clinical ranges.

    Conclusions: Heavy resistance training for 28 days, with NO-Shotgun(R) and NO-Synthesize(R) ingested before and after exercise, respectively, significantly improved body composition and increased muscle mass and performance without abnormally impacting any of the clinical chemistry markers.

      The above inspired my latest vid on understanding research as it applies to supplements in this case:
