NO-Bomb is a nitric oxide (NO) booster produced in the USA by MHP. The company has a habit for being a tad overly-technical when describing the way its products work, but it has a good reputation and many bodybuilders rate its products highly.
Benefits promised to NO-Bomb users include:
- Massive pumps
- Increased muscle growth
- Increased performance
- Improved body composition
- Clinical strength formulation
How NO-Bomb Works
Effective NO boosters contain ingredients that cause vasodilation (widening of the blood vessels). When the blood vessels are dilated the muscles are provided with an increased amount of oxygen and nutrients. The improved blood supply also enables bodybuilders to experience better pumps and since this is an experience most bodybuilders relish it contributes much to the popularity of NO boosting products.
When the muscles are worked hard it stands to reason they will require more nutrients, so any formulation that can deliver these nutrients as quickly and cleanly as possible offers obvious benefits, but vasodilators are not only beneficial because of their ability to supply muscles with much-needed nutrients. The blood vessels also carry away things that can be detrimental to training sessions and muscle growth, such as ammonia and lactic acid.
Each (3 capsule) serving provides:
- Folate (300mcg)
- Nitrosignine (1500mg)
- KNO3 Nitrate-NO Technology and Nitric Oxide Sustaining Agents (136.5MG): k-NOx Beet Root Juice Extract (containing K-Nitrate and Na-Nitrate), Grape Seed Extract, Pine Bark Extract, Butea Superba (root),Forsythia Suspensa Extract (fruit), AstaREAL, Schizonwpeta Tenuifolia Extract
NO-Bomb contains a couple of trademarked ingredients and is not an easy blend to evaluate, but Nitrosigine is an inositol-stabilized arginine silicate manufactured by Nutrition 21 and some tests show use of the ingredient can significantly boost NO levels and increase blood flow to by up to five times.
NOSA consists of a number of ingredients that are believed to provide support to important metabolic pathways and help retain NO levels in the muscle tissues and blood for longer. Without any individual inclusion rates it is hard to say how well the blend will work, so customer feedback will be particularly useful for gauging NO-Bomb’s overall potential.
Around 75% of NO-Bomb users rate the product quite highly. The rest have a different opinion and one guy sums up his feelings in two little words: “complete crap”.
Another unsatisfied customer states:
“This one is not for me. I got no pump no improved focus nothing at all, but mhp usually produce decent products so it may work for other people. “
A few comments from those who did find it works read:
“NO-Bomb works great for me and will be good for anyone who needs a stimulant free supplement. I workout pretty late at night and NO-Bomb does not interfere with my sleep so I love it. Totally awesome product! I get a fantastic pump and it helps me work out hard.”
“NO BOMB helps me to work out hard and I get great pumps that really stretch the skin. MHP has done it again!”
“Very good supplement. Makes your workouts so much easier it almost feels like you are cheating and it provides some pretty good pumps as well.”
How to use NO-Bomb
Three to six capsules are required 30 to 45 minutes prior to working out.
Side effects don’t seem likely, but NO-Bomb is not recommended for women who are carrying or nursing a child. Anyone who has existing health problems or is taking medications should consult with a doctor before using NO-Bomb or any other brand of supplement.
A bottle of NO-Bomb contains 96 capsules and usually costs between $48 and $70 (depending on promotion) when purchased via the MHP website. Shipping is extra, but MHP does not ship to customers who live outside the US. It is also possible to buy NO-Bomb from a number of alternative online stores, often at much cheaper prices, so most people should be able to find a supplier.
A money back guarantee is available, but its length is unspecified and it only applies to products that are bought from the MHP online store.

Conclusion and Recommendations
MHP has an interesting product in NO-Bomb; most customers seem to be happy with the result. However, our favourite nitric oxide booster is still Nitrocut from Powerhouse.
Nitrocut is available all over the globe at much better prices than most of its competition. It’s also the best vasodilator we have tried…and we’ve used a lot. Read the review by following the link.
