If you were to make a Mount Rushmore of supplement companies, MuscleTech would likely be the first company you put on there. They’re one of the most recognizable and divisive company’s in the industry.

However, they’ve recently revamped their product lines and introduced new formulas for some of their best known products such as Nano Vapor.

Whether you’re looking for something new to try, or just want to revisit Nano Vapor for its new formula, read on for answers to everything you need to know about it.

Why Should You Try Nano Vapor?

Finding the right pre-workout is often a trial and error process. Individual responses to ingredients, dosages, and formulas vary widely which is why you always want to experiment with new pre-workouts.

You’ve also probably noticed that if you stick to one pre-workout for a long time it doesn’t have the same kick it did when you initially tried it.

First we’ll delve into the Nano Vapor’s ingredient label, then I’ll give you a full review of using Nano Vapor during my workout.

Nano Vapor Ingredients?

Nano Vapor’s formula is primarily divided into three main categories:

Pump and Performance Complex

L-Citrulline Malate: Citrulline is an amino acid which enhances nitric oxide production. This improves muscle contractions and leads to better muscle pumps and growth.[1]

Beta-Alanine: Beta alanine improves exercise performance by increasing muscle carnosine levels. This improves muscle ph balance and delays the time it takes to feel that burning sensation during a set.[2]

Betaine Anydrous: Betaine is an amino acid shown to have several muscle building benefits. Not only is it associated with greater strength gains, but betaine is shown to improve overall body composition.[3]

Quercetin: Quercetin is an antioxidant which may lower blood pressure and act as a vasodilator by widening blood vessels and increasing blood flow during workouts.[4]

Yohimbe Extract: Yohimbe increases mobilization of fatty acids, allowing you to burn more fat for energy.[5]

Cell Volumization and Growth Matrix

Creatine Monohydrate: This is the most researched form of creatine, creatine monohydrate is shown to increase strength and improve endurance. [6]

Taurine: Taurine is an amino acid which improves cellular hydration by driving nutrients into cells.

L-Aspartic Acid: L-aspartic acid provides the cells with energy by helping to generate adenosine triphosphate (ATP).

Energy and Focus Complex

Caffeine Anhydrous: In addition to providing energy and focus, caffeine has been shown to blunt pain during exercise.[7]

L-Theanine: Theanine is an amino acid which boosts memory and cognitive function.

My Experience Using Nano Vapor

I believe in always starting with the positive, so I will say that Nano Vapor does mix well. As far as taste goes though, I had the fruit punch flavor and honestly had a really hard time finishing the entire thing.

Personally, I’ve never responded favorably to any of Nano Vapor’s formulas. When it came time to workout I felt sick to my stomach and wasn’t able to get any kind of pump going.

That being said, there are plenty of people online who rave about Nano Vapor, and I have a few friends I lift with that absolutely love it. It just goes back to trying it out and seeing what works best for you.

Nano Vapor Final Thoughts

Even though I‘ve personally never responded well to Nano Vapor, it does contain a solid ingredient profile with ingredients backed by research. Pre-workouts are divisive as everyone responds to them differently. I would encourage you to try Nano Vapor for yourself and let us know about your experience with it.
