Product Overview

Animal M-Stack Background Image

Animal Nitro

  • Six grams of Essential Amino Acids (EAA) per pack.
  • Efficiently assimilated uncoupled aminos.
  • Kickstarts anabolism postworkout, heightening protein synthesis.*
  • Loaded with extra BCAAs.

Suggested For

  • Competitive strength & power athletes.
  • High-intensity training.
  • Athletes who are dieting.
  • Individuals bulking on higher protein diets.
  • Lifters looking for an edge.*

Daily Dose

When lifting, there is a critical 4-hour anabolic “window of opportunity” that exists. To take advantage of this window, take 1 pack within 30 minutes following resistance training. For even better results, take 2 packs daily – the first immediately before lifting, and the second within 30 minutes after. If you use a post-training protein shake, wait at least another 30-45 minutes after you’ve taken the Animal Nitro pack before drinking your shake. Always take on an empty stomach, preferably with 8 oz. of grape or other fruit juice.

Recommended Stacks

Like Animal Pak, we think Animal Nitro is a “foundational” supplement. It should be a staple in your nutritional arsenal. Animal Nitro can provide the body with the basic building blocks it needs to grow.* You can stack it with Animal Pak or any other Animal supplement depending on your goals.

Animal Nitro. Old school meets new school. We’ve taken tried and true classics, amino acids, and brought them up to date for the serious lifter who’s looking for something more. Listen, amino acids have been around for decades and have been used by countless athletes. As supplements, they’ve stood the test of time. They’ve also been studied in great depth over the years. And those studies are always moving forward… Recent research suggests that amino acids help support an anabolic environment.* But that research also suggests that timing, dosages, and the mix of aminos are all extremely important. To get things rolling, you gotta start with the right mix, forms and types of aminos to support the maximum anabolic advantage.* Animal Nitro’s got it all.

Animal Nitro has the right types of aminos (essential aminos), forms (“uncoupled”), dose (6 grams per pack), and the right blend of aminos (Human Muscle Protein Complex™). Recent published studies suggest that to stimulate protein synthesis and spark anabolism, only essential amino acids (EAA) are necessary. Non-essential amino acids (NEAA) aren’t (protein powders have both EAA and NEAA). You don’t need a lot either. EAA are so efficient, researchers have surmised that only 6 grams, orally-delivered, are necessary (this is the precise amount in each pack of Animal Nitro).* However, it’s not just a matter of throwing in 6 grams of EAA. For example, you can’t put them into tablets. Tablets, with all the fillers and coatings, prevent the EAA from being utilized by the body efficiently. That’s why Animal Nitro comes only in quick-dissolving capsules. The ratio of EAA are important too. We’ll talk about this in a second…

"Animal Nitro is easily the best amino product I have ever used. Those who feel that the use of a simple amino product is antiquated compared to the flashy products that flood today’s market simply have never used an EAA/BCAA product as good as Nitro. I don't need hype. I need a product that does what it's supposed to do. " -Evan “Ox” Centopani, IFBB Pro Bodybuilder

We covered the types of aminos that are important. But the forms are important too. That’s why we use only “uncoupled” essential amino acids. Uncoupled aminos are a special form of amino acid–they are free of chemical bonds. Because of this, uncoupled aminos are rapidly absorbed by the body—far more rapidly and efficiently than protein powders like whey.* Uncoupled aminos, unlike intact proteins (such as from foods or protein powders) can exert powerful support for physiological actions such as hormone regulation within normal levels, immune support, and anabolism.* Just as importantly, uncoupled aminos can bypass the liver. The liver acts as a kind of gatekeeper. When you eat chicken or drink a protein shake, the liver deaminates much of the aminos, and those aminos are ultimately converted to urea.* Not good.

Uncoupled amino acids, on the other hand, have the ability actually bypass the liver. Once ingested, uncoupled aminos in Animal Nitro can form a “bolus” or a special protective mass of aminos. Due to this protective bolus, when the uncoupled aminos reach the liver, they can escape the liver’s processing and enter into systemic circulation quickly and reach their target areas to exert their physiological support.* And this is one of the reasons why Animal Nitro is superior to regular protein powders.* Animal Nitro contains valuable essential aminos acids in “uncoupled” forms that can rapidly reach target tissues and exert anabolic effects.

While the form and types of aminos are important, so too is the blend. You need the right ratios of EAA to extract the maximum benefits. Animal Nitro has the right ratios. Animal Nitro is the only amino acid supplement that contains Human Muscle Protein Complex™. We used the amino acid profile found in actual human muscle protein itself when we created Animal Nitro. Why? By matching the types and ratios of amino acids to human muscle, you can potentially increase the availability of each individual essential amino acid in proportion to its requirement for enhancing muscle protein synthesis.* In other words, if your muscles are a hand, then Animal Nitro’s Human Muscle Protein Complex™ is the glove.

We think Animal Nitro is going to be a solid addition to your nutritional arsenal. As a solid amino-based supplement, it can appeal to a broad range of strength athletes, including powerlifters, bodybuilders, and anyone who requires strength and power as a foundation. It can be used during a cutting or bulking cycle. It can be used by lifters who are looking to promote recovery, more energy, and greater strength.* Because it consists of such fundamental, basic ingredients, amino acids, and because it offers so much nutritional flexibility, we think Animal Nitro will quickly become a staple supplement for lifters everywhere.

Nitro has become a staple for me in my postworkout stack. Pound back the Nitro pack with my creatine after, then wait the allotted time before consuming your whey shake and you're going to see results. Stay the course with this product and you'll see and feel results!

I rated this an 8. I have tried a few different amino's over the years and this one is probably the best I have taken. The many pills is the hardest part to have to swallow all of them, but to me is easier than having to drink another drink before and after a workout. I can definitely see the differences in the gym hit harder and pump faster. As of now this is the amino I will continue to take.

After long searching and trying, this is hands down the best bcaa/ammino supplement out there. And I must admit, it works very well. Bit pricey, but I'm very satisfied and just ordered a second tube.

Animal Nitro. It contains the good dosage of the best amino acid of the markets, not only destroyed protein. Expensive but a must have when you are bulking hard and serously.

The perfect compliment to Animal Paks is another Animal ! Follow what it says; impressive product - easy to use Nitro when u need it ! Nothing gets it all in there like an Animal - a must for your daily regime

i'll preface my review by saying that I find Universal to be one of the most reliable companies in terms of putting out high quality products at an affordable price. I decided to give Nitro a try because (1) i respect the Universal brand; and (2) i liked the convenience of the pills/capsules as opposed to powder. That being said, Animal Nitro, based on my experience, is their least effective product and not worth the price. I wouldn't call it a "scam" but I would rather spend my money on another product that offers more bang for my buck. One pack of Nitro simply isn't enough if you train hard. At 2 packs, it simply isn't worth the money. There are better amino products out there for a lower price that are more comprehensive (i.e. offer more aminos, including glutamine) and effective.
